If you want to go one further than just having a token pint of Guinness next Sunday and are planning on heading to the Emerald Isle, Ryanair has got you covered.

The low-cost Irish airline has announced its largest ever Paddy’s Day schedule, with hundreds of flights to and from Dublin.

Ryanair will operate more than 580 flights between the Irish capital and some destinations across Europe over the St Patrick’s weekend.

Between Friday 15 and Monday 18 March, the airline will carry more than 100,000 passengers to and from Dublin, connecting the city with UK hubs including Bristol, Liverpool, London and Manchester.

“As Ireland’s greatest export, Ryanair is proud to fly the Irish flag and no more so than on St Patrick’s Day,” said Ryanair’s Robin Kiely.

“We’ll carry over 100,000 passengers on 580 flights to and from Dublin over St Patrick’s weekend, as part of our biggest-ever Paddy’s Day schedule, connecting Dublin with 70 destinations.”

To mark the unique schedule, Ryanair is offering passengers the chance to book low-cost seats on more than 1,000 routes across Europe in April.

Flights across the airline’s network can be booked from just £9 for travel between Mondays and Thursdays in April. Travellers have until midnight on Monday to take advantage of the offer, which can be found at ryanair.com.

Mr Kiely added: “Our Dublin-bound flights are selling out fast so passengers should book quickly to avoid missing out on the craic!”

Ryanair isn’t the only Irish firm doing something special for St Patrick’s Day; Irish tourist board Tourism Ireland has arranged for some of the world’s most iconic landmarks to “go green” on the big day.

The world-famous sites getting an Irish makeover next Sunday include the Sphinx, the Pyramids of Giza, Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer and the Las Vegas sign.

Blogger and travel writer, I like my holidays either really cold or really hot. If I'm not flying down an icy mountain or relaxing on a scorching-hot beach, I'm not interested!
