St Patrick's Day shenanigans in a Lazy Days campervan

St Patrick’s Day marks the true start of the Lazy Days season. It’s a time when the brave don their first mini-skirts, campsites re-open their gates, the clocks spring forward yielding precious extra hours of daylight and a myriad of festivals and celebrations happen around the country to kick start our senses after the winter lull.

Paddy’s Day bank holiday weekend is the perfect opportunity to grab a Lazy Days camper, get out on the road and discover the many fun things happening across the South East. Here are some of our favourite events in Wicklow and Ireland’s Ancient East:
