Throughout the year, Ireland follows the rhythm of its festivals and celebrations. Take part in one of these events to discover the country and its local customs. The Irish love to have fun, and this is especially apparent during their St. Patrick's Day celebrations on March 17. If you find yourself in Dublin during this Christian feast, get ready for a multi-day festival made up of beer, dancing, and traditional music.
Galway, on the West Coast, hosts a similar event. This port city is also known for its oyster festival in September, where you can enjoy fresh seafood and original recipes. If you prefer an event that feeds your imagination, we recommend the Cape Clear Island Storytelling Festival. Listen to the stories recounted by professional storytellers, as you take in the sparsely populated island’s surroundings.
From culture and art to folk and food festivals, Irish festivities cater to all. Create your itinerary by choosing the events that interest you the most with the help of one of our local agents.
