    Celebrating St Patrick's Day in Dublin is like going to Mardi Gras in New Orleans or Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience! The city thrums with energy, celebration and events that range from artistic to eccentric.

    Across the five days of the festival, you can soak up the joyous atmosphere at music gigs, walking tours, food fairs, art exhibitions and an exciting new pageant called ‘The Future That Moves Us’ featuring an interactive augmented reality experience. And, of course, the undoubted highlight is the parade on 17 March – an explosion of colour, creativity and thrilling street performances, including marching bands, dancers and more.
