Kilkenny

With a theme so sweet that it’ll melt your heart (“Bring back the bees”), Kilkenny’s 2019 St. Patrick’s Day festivities can’t be beat. This cute city in Ireland’s long, celebratory day is filled with colorful parades, hands-on music workshops, live music, street food and carnival rides that will leave you buzzing. Highlights: Spinning with excitement, literally, at the vintage funfair (an old school carnival with carousel, helter-skelter and chair-o-planes), exploring the James Stephens Barracks museum free open day, and rocking out to a free show by The Joshua Tree (Ireland’s very own U2 cover band. Yes, you heard me). Pro tip: Go for St. Patrick’s day, stay for Kilkenny Tradfest: a spectacular music festival that showcases the very best in Irish trad and folk music in stunning venues all around the city, like Kilkenny Castle. How to celebrate in 2021: Kilkenny is rocking the virtual St. Patrick’s Day game for 2021! Between a people picture parade (#kilkennyingreen), a virtual dog show, and virtual traditional music concert on March 16th, there’s plenty to do.
