St Patrick’s Festival

Enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people each year, the festival of our national holiday is a stunning programme of creative cultural events and hypnotic happenings. From cathedrals to classrooms, the city celebrates with a spectacular and evocative programme of mesmerising music, awe-inspiring art, powerful performance, intriguing walks and tantalising talks. The parade alone is watched throughout the world as the capital celebrates in true kaleidoscopic colour and spectacle. St Patrick’s Festival is Funded by Fáilte Ireland, Dublin City Council and the Department Arts, Heritage and The Gaeltacht.
