Cork

As Ireland’s second largest city by population, Cork brings a big game for St. Patrick’s Day. Cork’s signature parade is electric and community-oriented, featuring nearly 3,000 dancers, musicians, street performers, and special guests from across the city. Compared to Dublin, Cork’s festivities are a bit more palatable for the low-key traveler, so head to Cork for an enthusiastic, but family-friendly, St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Highlights: Stuffing your face with epic street food at Cork’s pop-up festival market and then watching 11,000 multi-colored balls roll down St. Patrick’s hill to help raise money for the Cork Lion’s Club City Centre Defibrillator Project. Pro tip: Cork is home to both Jameson and Murphy’s, so this is a great spot if you’re into tastings. How to celebrate in 2021: This year’s parade is cancelled, but if you’re nearby, don’t miss out on seeing the city go green!
