The St. Patrick’s Festival in Dublin, Ireland

St. Patrick’s Day is a day when people wear green and celebrate the Irish. The holiday marks the death of Ireland’s patron saint in 460 A.D. In 1995, Dublin established the St. Patrick’s Festival, which is a 4 day celebration held March 16 to 19th. During the 4 days you can attend 30 events, including a parade, concerts, poets, and more.
