We Speak Dad

Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 5.19.14 PMFather’s Day is fast approaching, and our gift shop has all the dad-centric gifts on every father’s (unspoken) list. Whether he’s a fisher, a builder, a foodie, a tech head, or a beer aficionado, don’t worry. We speak dad.


Listen to more of dad’s jokes on the plane ride to Ireland.

For example, your dad probably wouldn’t mind you entering our contest to win him a trip to Ireland to enjoy the majesty and lush landscape of the Emerald Isle and tour a world-famous brewery.

No one in the average American household wields more at-the-ready adages than Dad. Whether it’s, “In my day, we didn’t have safety nets or cell phones,” or “I’m so hungry, I could eat my arm,” or “You’re going to like it, whether you like it or not!” Dad’s dad-isms never disappoint. Now we want to reward one spectacular Dad–and his classic Dad-speak–with a trip to Ireland, the birthplace of blarney.

To enter, share a photo of your favorite dad (or a photo of something that reminds you of your dad, like a hat or his comfy chair). Then add a caption of his most popular dad-ism. After submitting, head to the internet and rally your friends to vote! We’ll choose a grand-prize winning dad based on creativity and quality of the photo, as well as the creativity and originality of the caption from the 10 submissions with the most votes.

The grand-prize winning captioned photo will receive a Groupon Getaway* for two to Ireland valued at $8,000. Four additional entrants will be chosen randomly to win $100 in Groupon Bucks each–two entrants will be chosen from the remaining 10 submissions with the most votes and two entrants will be chosen from all submissions.

Grand prize includes:

  • Round trip airfare for two to Dublin, Ireland
  • Five-star accommodations at Ashford Castle (two nights), Adare Manor (2 nights), Four Seasons Hotel Dublin (2 nights) and a Heritage Golf & Spa Resort (1 night)
  • Tour of world-famous Irish brewery
  • Complimentary tours, golfing, car rental and more

Happy Father’s Day and good luck!
