There is only one place to be on St. Patrick's Day and that is Ireland. The St. Patrick's Festival is truly one of the great spectacles of the world — a week-long celebration of music, dance and outdoor shows culminating in the stunning St. Patrick's Day parade through the historic streets of Dublin on March 17th.

One can also visit the beautiful town of Downpatrick where St. Patrick is buried and check out the St. Patrick's centre which is the world's only permanent exhibit to St. Patrick. The St. Patrick's festival is the highlight of the early vacation season and what a year 2017 is going to be.
