Book now – pay rest later
Boston is said to be the most Irish of all US cities with some quarter of its residents claiming Irish ancestry.
Whether you have Irish roots or not, you can party like you’ve just found a pot of gold with this ‘craic-ing’ Big Deal on a St Patrick’s Day stay in Boston.
From walking the Boston Irish Heritage Trail to watching the colourful dancers, floats and bands of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston on Sunday 18th March, there is never a dull moment in Beantown over this weekend.
If you can get tickets, The Dropkick Murphys will be performing their shamrockin’ annual gig at the House of Blues.
And if you can’t get tickets, there will be no shortage of Irish bars serving up green beer, black beer, live music and the ever popular dish of corn beef and cabbage.
Full balance on this Big Deal is due twelve weeks prior to departure, so book now and pay the rest later to secure a fantastic time in Massachusetts’ biggest city.

‘Good option in downtown Boston. Nice hotel with easy access to most tourist places and downtown offices. Rooms are small, but comfortable…’
‘We loved our stay here. Even though the room was small (we knew that beforehand) it was really nice. And the bathroom was a good size with a large shower… Location was great – we walked everywhere we wanted to visit in Boston. I would not hesitate to recommend.’
‘The hotel is very clean and has a lot of character. The room was comfortable, exactly what we needed. The location is excellent, a couple of blocks from Boston Commons. We were able to do some sightseeing on foot without any trouble. Staff most helpful.’
