Belfast

St Paddy’s Day is never dull, and where better to celebrate it than at the Belfast St Patrick’s Day Carnival? After you’ve had your fill of the parade, duck into any pub for a pint and you’ll find more folk music, more jigs, more colour, more chanting, and more celebration. When: March 17th Wackiest trait: St Patrick’s Trail: a 92-mile journey across the landscape that takes you on a tour of ancient and religious sites, each having some connection to the life of St Patrick.

Belfast celebrates St. Patrick’s day with a colorful carnival parade that fills the city with vibrant energy and music. You can literally feel the good vibes as music runs through your body and enormous floats, street performers in magnificent costumes, and global musicians parade on by. Highlights: Dancing the afternoon away at Belfast’s free open air concert and spending the day at the world’s largest, interactive Titanic museum. Pro tip: The St. Patrick’s Day concert at Custom House Square is free, but entry is on a first-come, first-served basis. Guarantee that you’ll get your groove on by showing up a little early (there will be a line at the gates). How to celebrate in 2021: No parades this year, but you can still experience Irish culture in the heart of Belfast by sampling the best of local food and drink or by following in the footsteps of the saint himself on the St Patrick’s trail.
