March 13th -20th
It’s a rare treat to travel with like minded people. So when the Brew Bus got talking to Independent Ireland we came to the conclusion… if there is one place that has mastered their passion for beer as much as the US, it might just be our friendly neighbors across the pond.
So for 2019 we’ve partnered with the locals to take us there and to add a touch of magic we’re going for St Patricks Day, and you’re invited to join us!
We want to combine the stunning landscape in Ireland with it’s emerging craft beer industry and the people behind it. We want to take you beyond the ordinary and into the mystic. Not to just visit Ireland, but to dive in head first. To immerse ourselves in its culture, history, music, its food and beverage scene, but more importantly its people.
Go See for yourself…
Accommodation: Absolute Hotel Limerick
Dingle has some of the best pubs in the country and a selection of brilliant restaurants serving the best food this island has to offer. The spectacular Slea Head drive is like something out of a movie… many movies in fact. As if thats not enough, the place is literally a living museum, you’ll pass forts that date back to 800BC, a stone church that dates back to early christianity and ogham stones that allow you to touch a medieval language. This area has the most dense and wide ranging archaeological monument in Western Europe. But did I mention the great beer and Whiskey along the way… It’s a long day, but a great one.
Accommodation: Benner’s Hotel Dingle
We arrive into Cork just as it all starts coming to a crescendo of merriment for the St Patricks Day festival in the city. A day thats packed solid with parades. street entertainment, music, food, pubs… If there was ever a day to be in Ireland, it’s today.
Accommodation: Ambassador Hotel, Cork City
As iconic as they come, no visit to Ireland is complete without experiencing Whiskey – in the home of Whiskey. The Jamesons Distillery in Middleton, Co Cork brings all the brands you know and love together, whether it’s Powers, Paddy, Red Breast or just good old fashioned Jameson, you’re exactly where you need to be. It’s almost a pilgrimage!
The journey gets even more exciting as we travel back into the midlands, we have a few more tricks up our sleeve. We stop briefly in Kilkenny for light lunch before moving onto the magic that is Dublin. It’s high above Dublin from the vantage point of The Gravity Bar at St James’s Gate that you will truly reflect on your week. A week with friends, old and new, a week building great memories. All while looking out over a perfect pint of Guinness to the city that was almost built around it. It’s as iconic as it gets and, to you, we say Slainte! See you there.
