St Patrick’s Day Events You Don’t Want To Miss In Dublin

If you are living in Dublin, or are planning to head to Dublin this weekend, then there are lots of fun things to do and see this St Patrick’s Day weekend.

A firm favourite is the parade (although be sure to get there early!) but there are also lots of other events you can enjoy.

Most events will not be Dog Friendly, so if you need help with your four legged friend then let us know.

St Patrick’s Day Parade

The St Patrick’s Parade leaves Parnell Square North at 12 noon on 17 March and promises to be a spectacular traditional parade not to be missed.

Huge crowds are expected, so aim to be there for 10am if you want a place at the front. If you arrive later then head towards the end of the parade for a better chance of a good viewing spot.
