Dublin Marathon Travel and Entry Information



October 27, 2014


Marathon Tours is pleased to invite you and your friends to the 2014 Dublin Marathon on Monday, October 27. This is the 32nd year that we will be enjoying Ireland's most famous race and the 1000th year celebration of the Battle of Clontarf.  Come join us as we celebrate Ireland's Viking past and Brian Boru's victory!


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, 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 for them after the tour ends in Bunratty.  We know the best pubs, restaurants and running areas in Dublin, Galway and beyond.

Make your plans now. Marathon Tours will be pleased to provide you with all the information you will need to make your trip a memorable one. Our tour guide, Kelly Allen, has run the Dublin Marathon and been our guide for the past four years.  She is happy to answer all of your questions!  Join us this October in Ireland!
