In Armagh, where St Patrick's legacy is still felt today, celebrate the life of Ireland’s patron saint at the Home of St Patrick Festival. Expect a lively and varied showcase of the best culture, music, song and dance in the place Saint Patrick called his “sweet little hill”.
St Patrick is known around the world, but it is the island of Ireland that made him a legend. While his journey can be traced all around the island, it is Armagh that is at the heart of celebrating the life of St Patrick – where the patron saint founded his first large stone church. The city today now has two cathedrals in his name, and of course, the Home of St Patrick Festival – expect a lively week of culture, music, song and dance!
