The Dublin Marathon

The Dublin Marathon was always held on a Bank Holiday Monday but since 2016 it has moved to a Sunday with the result that it has bcome a sell out event.

With 25,000 expected runners, from 65 countries the race is the right size to give you that big race atmosphere, yet it also feels like a local race with its close connection to the UK and the hospitable nature of Dubliners.

The fast course, which is largely flat, passes through many of Dublin's famous 18th century Georgian streets and the beautiful Phoenix Park, Europe's largest urban park. The race crosses the city, north and south of the river Liffey, and passes down Dublin's wide main thoroughfares. 

The weather is usually ideal for marathon running, with average temperatures of between 12 and 14 degrees Celsius. 

Guinness Storehous Visit

One of the most popular attractions is the Guinness Storehouse, as you woul expect in Dublin. We can offer a visit on either Saturday morning or Monday morning. Cost £18

Post Race Gala Dinner & Traditional Show

Join us on Sunday evening after the race for this excellent night out at the famous The Merry Ploughboy in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains. This is the first and only music venue in Ireland which is owned and run by musicians themselves.

The evening includes a home-cooked 3-course dinner accompanied by a live two-hour show with traditional music and dance.

You will be collected by bus from the hotel at 6.30pm and return back to the hotel at 11pm. Cost including transport £53.

The marthon weekend previously included a Friendship Run but it is not continuing in 2018, this year the only running race is the Marathon.
