The Dublin St Patrick's Festival 2015 takes place over five days and culminates in the Dublin St Patrick's Day Parade, which is held on the 17th of March and will involve hundreds of floats, costumes and dancers... oh yes and hundreds of thousands of onlookers.
In 2014 St. Patrick’s Festival has developed a three year theme - ‘Past, Present and Future’ adopting the commemorative era in Ireland’s history as its inspiration. This year we're on 'Present' and the festival theme is "Celebrate Now".
The St Patrick's Festival has a rich and varied assortment of activities including poetry, dance, visual art, filmmaking, history, literature, music and theatre.
Events over the course of the St Patrick's Festival will include:
- Funfairs located at Merrion Square and Custom House Quay.
- Big Day Out at Merrion Square for all the family
