St. Patrick’ Festival comes back this year bigger and bolder. Besides the iconic parade on St. Patrick’s Day with more pageants, more marching bands and more participants than ever before we will also have The Festival Quarter which is a new addition for the 2022 festival.
Located at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks, The Festival Quarter will be home to a magical day-to-night urban festival happening from 16 (Wednesday) to 20 (Sunday) March. Expect the best in Irish food & craft, daily gigs, live performances, dance shows, comedy, theater, film screenings, interactive games, circus and science shows and a space for all to relax and connect.
The festival brings exciting gigs with bands such as Le Boom, Glasshouse Orchestra and performances from Damien Dempsy, Lyra, Soule and many more. There will also be a group of 100 young harpists from around Ireland to play Irish Traditional Music and Code of Behaviour, a Cork based Irish brass band blending pop, jazz and overall madness.
Comedy performances include a Dublin Comedy Improv and Paradise Cabaret which will feature comedy, circus and dance and a Dublin Comedy Improv crew, Fred Cooke and Danny O’Brien plus other hilarious comedians, such as Neil Delamere, Julie Jay, Grace Mulvey, Kevin McGahern, Andrea Farrell, Steve Bennett and Emma Doran.
There will even be a wellness event called Breathe Festival taking place on the grounds of The Law Society of Ireland in Dublin 7 on March 18 and 19, while City Funfairs return to Custom House Quay from 17 to 20 March 17.
Additionally, there will be many St. Patrick’s Festival supported live events and club nights throughout Dublin.
