24th March 2017 - 9:30am
Stena Line has given 18 people from across Britain a St. Patrick’s Day they will never forget by whisking them off to Dublin, which is just over three hours away by ferry from Holyhead, to experience the special day how the Irish do it. Stena Line, who joined forces with Capital Radio stations in Liverpool, North West, Wales and Cymru, found 18 people with the luck of the Irish who won an amazing day trip to Dublin. Winners and Capital FM crew were taken to Holyhead where they sailed to Dublin on St. Patrick’s Day morning, returning later that night, explained Diane Poole OBE (Head of PR and Communications Stena Line).
“Some say Ireland celebrates St. Patrick’s Day like no one else and we have to agree! It has been a fabulous day that we didn’t want anyone to miss! The craic was mighty and Dublin and its people did not disappoint!” said Diane.
Dublin was awash with green as thousands of excited revellers soaked up the buzzing atmosphere of one of Europe’s most exciting cities. The lucky winners and crew were able to experience an unforgettable St. Patrick’s Day parade, walk across the famous Ha’Penny Bridge and see many famous landmarks, such as Trinity College, lit up green. Diane continued: “For our competition winners, Capital crew, and the rest of our passengers, the fun started as soon as they stepped onboard! Our ships have some great places to eat and drink, a free cinema, free Wi-Fi, lots of comfy seating to relax in and places to explore, delicious meal deals, discounted shopping, stunning views and, of course, the excitement of a voyage by sea.
Stena Line got into the party spirit on St. Patrick’s Day with Butlers chocolate taste testing onboard, pints of green Guinness, vouchers given out randomly offering money off in the onboard shop and drinks offers like 2 one litre bottles of Jameson for £48.
