Stag Do, St Patricks Day 2014

Hi All,

As best man, I've organised my best friends Stag do to Dublin for St Patricks day 2014. We arrive Sunday 16th (am), and leave Tuesday afternoon. There will be between 12-16 of us.

I've got the flights and hotel booked, just wondered what sort of stuff goes on there over that time that might be fun.

What happens at Croke Park on St Patricks day? is it worth going to? Will it take all day?

I'm planning on doing the Guinness and Jameson's places on the Sunday, and Tuesday will involve a hangover, brunch, and heading to the airport.That leaves Monday... any suggestions?

Also - over here, you traditionally dress the stag up - we're thinking of all dressing up (possibly as Gru + minions from Despicable Me). Will this go unnoticed with it being St Patricks day, will it make us stand out more, will anywhere be funny about letting us in?

Thanks for any advice / ideas!

Not wanting to rain on your parade, but just to let you know stag parties were treated with hostility in many of the pubs in the city centre. I did hear someone counter claim that this has eased up, but I wouldn't bank on it, and if you are very OTT than you might find it hard to get in anywhere.

Town is out and out hyper on this night. IMO St. Patrick's night is certainly not for the faint hearted, and is well messy - is that a stag though.

The All Ireland club football and hurling finals are on in Croke Park on st Patrick's day. This is the culmination of all the local competitions around the country and is a great way to see our national games.

Unlike the top level inter-county (highest level of play) finals you can just buy tickets on the day for the club finsls and there is usually 35,000 or so there. The 2 matches are on in the afternoon so you would probably be there 3hours.

Many tourists go to the parade in the morning and then walk to Croke park in the afternoon
