The day when everyone claims to have some Irish heritage in their ancestry is fast approaching, and where better to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than a visit to the Emerald Isle itself? Jet2.com fly to Cork from Newcastle, and Belfast from Leeds Bradford or Blackpool, from just £9.99*.
The Irish know how to party, and Thursday the 17th of March is no exception! Cork is kicking off the celebrations with a family-friendly parade through the city centre, with local arts and crafts stalls, traditional Irish food, and interactive fun for the kids. This year the St. Patricks day parade has a Happiness theme, and runs right through the weekend until Sunday the 20th of March, so a long weekend break would be perfect to experience the festival.
Further up in Northern Ireland, Belfast is also marking the occasion with its own celebration. The festival here runs from the 15th to the 17th of March, and has a vast array of activities, such as football and water sports, Irish dancing, traditional music, and plenty of the black stuff!
If you want to get the party started early on your Jet2.com flight, we sell Mini Baileys and Magners Irish Cider onboard!
Don’t miss your chance to discover the Irish in you, book now!
