We hate to break it to you, but it’s a myth that at the bottom of every rainbow you will find a pot of leprechaun gold.
No, what you’ll find at the bottom of every rainbow is an equally fabulous shiny golden ticket to Dublin.
The trouble is, rainbows are a bit hard to come by in winter. So how about making your way to the fair city via this Big Deal instead? Brought to you by The Travel Company Edinburgh (TTCE), it is for a two night central stay with return flights from Glasgow or Edinburgh.
And if you are looking for Christmas gift inspiration, then whisking someone off on a Dublin city break is always an excellent choice.
Dublin down on thrills
This Big Deal offers a chance to escape with a loved one to an exciting city with plenty of history and nightlife.
You will be staying for two nights in a central Dublin apartment, including return flights from either Glasgow International or Edinburgh airports. The price is based on two adults sharing a double room in a studio apartment.
Travel dates are as follows:
29th, 30th January
7th, 8th, 12th, 13th, 17th, 18th, 20th, 26th February
12th, 19th March
Central apartment stay
You will be staying in self-catering accommodation at City Studios & Apartments, close to Croke Park Stadium and a 15-minute walk from the famous Temple Bar.
Part of The Key Collections and based in a Georgian property, you can still see original features such as chandeliers and arches.
That said, your studio apartment itself will be fully contemporary. It will include a living space, well-equipped kitchen (with a washer, oven, microwave and dining area), free WiFi, flat screen TV, towels and linen.
Explore a legendary city
Culture, history, architecture… and a total of 751 pubs to sip your Guinness in. Dublin has it all.
Must-sees include Dublin Castle, the 16th century Trinity College and historic Fitzwilliam Square. For scenery, head to the deer-filled Phoenix Park or watch boats drift by on Dublin Bay.
The Temple Bar is a classic drinking spot, but you certainly won’t be short of other atmospheric pubs to try out. In fact, part of the fun is just wandering around the city on a voyage of discovery.
And don’t forget to check out the Guinness Storehouse tour to learn more about Ireland’s iconic tipple.
