St Patrick's Festival

The spirit of St Patrick's Day has followed Irish migrants all over the world, but this is where it all began!

The focal point of the St Patrick's Festival remains the parade which takes place annually at midday on 17 March starting from Parnell Square, down O'Connell Street, and ending up by the Cathedral. Hundreds of thousands of locals and visitors alike take part in the 5 days of festivities which engulf the capital in March every year. Alongside the parade, you'll find a fairground, music festival, comedy shows, special filmings and family activities.
