St. Patrick's Festival 2008 

It seems like we have no sooner got over the Hogmanay hangover, than the Irish begin their annual party. Monday 17th March is St. Patrick's day; that special day filled with music, velvet black stout, dancing and still more of the black stuff. The day when the Irish celebrate being Irish and the rest of the world celebrate with them, wishing that they have at least a little Irish blood running through their veins.

In Dublin, they celebrate in the famed Irish style, warming up with five days and nights of celebrations. Music, street theatre, family carnivals, comedy, street performances, dance, a treasure hunt and night spectaculars. What is more, almost all of the events are free.

Then, the celebrations, involving 4000 performers and 1 million people, come to a magnificent climax with the world famous St. Patrick's Day Parade on Monday 17th March.
