The whole world is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day! And Dublin is the stage for the biggest and best St. Patrick’s celebrations in the world: the St. Patrick’s Festival.

From March 17th – 20th thousands of Irish people and visitors alike will paint the town green for four fantastic, fun-filled days. St. Patrick’s Festival is virtually bursting at the seams with street theatre, Irish music, dance, street spectacles, comedy, film, a treasure hunt, Irish language events, family fun and of course the best St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the world. An annual favourite, the Parade features highly original and inventive street theatre troupes, artists, giant puppetry, dancers and marching bands from Ireland and across the globe. With something for all tastes and ages and most of the events free of charge, everyone is encouraged to come along, join in and show why they’re proud to be Irish!
