Irish Couchsurfing Invasion

Gentle-men and Gentle-ladies it is my pleasure to invite you all to the
First (hopefully annual) Irish Couchsurfing Invasion.
please open this link before reading on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GX8z8raTZo

We have planned for you a week of activities and adventure, and it all starts March 8th, one week before Saint Patrick's day (March 17th). The most Irish day of the year.

Imagine yourself horse riding across the flowing green Irish landscape, or sliding the around Europe's largest and fastest go-karting track. Follow in the footsteps of some of the greatest Irish writers such as Oscar Wilde and WB Yeats. Go surfing in the Atlantic Ocean and ride wave that has travelled 4000kilometers to meet you. Have a tipple of green Irish whiskey brewed especially for the Invasion by master brewers at the Jameson Distillery, and laugh until you're out of breath at Dublin's laughter lounge comedy night.
You will expierence this and so much more, by the end of it you can still look forward to the Saint Patrick's Parade when everyone in the world becomes a little Irish.

We have many events planned, some confirmed and more to come, but all our events are "opt in". You can do as much, or as little as you like, to suit your preferences and wallet! See below all our events as of now...
