With countless activities planned for the 2018 festival, make sure you fit in as much as you can, but most importantly, get out into the city centre in your best greenery for the sheer spectacle that is 2018's St Patrick’s Day Parade!
Witness the spectacle that has made the Festival of the Dead an experience like no other. Brimming with carnival-like pageantry, led by giant skull processions, enlivened by acrobats and dancers and with beautiful decorative art and costumes all around, this is one festival you will be glad you made it to.
