The whole world comes to Dublin for St. Patrick’s Day and the centre-piece is the huge parade through the city on the day itself. Street performers from all over Ireland will be joined by bands from every corner of the globe and of course lots of dragons, snakes, and floats which defy description! The energy and buzz around the city will be awesome as hundreds of thousands of people take part in the festivities. It’s a fantastic day out for all the family so throw on something green and join in the fun!
The day after the big show there will be another party in City Hall for all the intrepid adventurers taking part in the city-wide scavenger hunt. Plan your routes, answer the questions at the stops and explore the city in a way you never have before. It’s a perfect game for children (big and small!) and takes place in the morning before everything gets busy again. To add a little bit of extra edge there will even be prizes for the quickest three teams!
