St Patrick's Day

There’s just nothing like it. On March 17, the island of Ireland thrums with energy and excitement for St Patrick’s Day. But it’s not just us – the whole world goes green to celebrate, so pin on that shamrock and join in the fun!

Is St Patrick’s Day the biggest celebration in the world? As landmarks across the globe light up in shining emerald splendour and people worldwide take to the streets in party mode, you’d certainly believe so.

This little island at the westernmost edge of Europe is where it all began, and it's at the heart of global celebrations that honour our patron saint. From the artistic flair on display at Galway's St Patrick's Day parade, the Home of St Patrick Festival in Armagh and Downpatrick, and the huge week-long party that is St Patrick’s Festival in Dublin, spending time here around March 17 is something rather special.
