There’s no better place to celebrate the memory of Ireland’s favourite ‘son’ than Dublin. Irish culture and tradition abound as the city becomes a sea of green and the ‘Paddies’ welcome all who come to celebrate with them. The St Patrick’s Day festival includes parades, concerts and of course many a chance to sample a pint or two of the black stuff!
