St Patrick’s Festival is truly one of the great spectacles of the world — a week-long celebration of music, dance and outdoor shows culminating in the fabulous St. Patrick’s Day parade through the historic streets of Dublin on March 17th. Regional parades take place in cities such as Kilkenny, Limerick and Killarney.
One can also visit the ‘Home of St Patrick’ in Northern Ireland and check out the St Patrick’s center in Downpatrick which is the world’s only permanent exhibit to our patron saint.
The St Patrick’s festival is the highlight of the early vacation season. We have fabulous new attractions including the Game of Thrones Studio Tour at Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge; just a short drive from Belfast, the newly designated UNESCO City of Music. Keeping with the artistic theme, Dublin will be thronging with literature lovers this year as the city celebrates the centenary of James Joyce’s revered masterpiece Ulysses. A host of literary events, exhibitions and artistic commissions are set to mark the 100th anniversary of the publication of one of the world’s most iconic works of literature.
Don’t take our word for it! Listen to International Star Liam Neeson, narrator of an exciting new documentary film for IMAX® and giant screen theaters, called Ireland. Produced by MacGillivray Freeman Films, this wonderful movie celebrates our rich history, culture, arts and music, as well as our spectacular scenery.
