Dublin's St. Patrick's Day Parade
Dublin's St. Patrick's Day Parade is one of the biggest and best in the world. The Parade and Festival showcases Irish culture and everyone comes out to celebrate their Irish heritage — no one parties more than the Irish during this festive time.

Dublin's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade takes place on March 17th, usually around 12 noon. The parade starts at Parnell Square North and runs for about two hours. In keeping with tradition, the Lord Mayor leads the parade in a coach dating back to 1791.

Every year, the parade has a different theme and features over half a million people and more than 2,000 performers, including international marching bands — it's a FUN time to visit Ireland.

"Happy St. Patrick's Day" — or as they say in Irish... "La Fheile Padraig Duit!"
