October 30, 2016
Marathon Tours is pleased to invite you and your friends to the 2016 Dublin Marathon held for the first time on Sunday, October 30th. This is the 34th year that we will be enjoying Ireland's most famous race!
Last year we were joined by 50 guests for a week of running, sight-seeing and celebrating one of Europe's best events. All race entries booked directly through Marathon Tours will be offered a special 10 euro discount.
A running vacation to Ireland is surely an unique opportunity. The camaraderie and warm hospitality of the Irish will remain with you long after the blisters and pain have diminished. Everyone who finishes receives a medal, shirt and certificate. Of course, the enthusiastic crowds will carry you through those last long miles with a ready smile and a touch of humor in their cheers.
The pubs in Galway are ideal spots to rest your weary legs as the trip will head into the Irish countryside for sight-seeing and pure relaxation. The final celebration is a farewell dinner at Knappogue Castle.
If you would like to extend your travel beyond our four or seven night package, join us in Belfast with tours to Giant's Causeway and the new Titantic Museum! Or we can customize your itinerary to meet individual needs throughout Ireland, the U.K. or around Europe. We have many travelers ask us to plan individual itineraries. We happy to provide information on the best pubs, restaurants and running areas in Dublin, Galway and beyond.
Make your plans now. Our tour guide, Kelly McLay, has run the Dublin Marathon and been our guide for the past six years. She is happy to answer all of your questions! Join us this October in Ireland!
