The National St. Patrick’s Festival is taking place this year from March 16 to 20 and the theme of this year’s global celebration is Connections/Naisc, writes Amy Rohu.

The iconic National St. Patrick’s Day Parade returns to the streets of Dublin on March 17, and new for 2022, the Festival Quarter at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks will be home to a magical day-to-night urban Festival for all.

The festival quarter day events will run from 12pm – 6pm and will see the return of the much loved Céilí Mór on the Main Stage on March 17, with many more traditional Irish artists, musicians, performers and dancers throughout the day.

From 6pm – 10.30pm the festival quarter will transform into an adults only event, with stunning lighting displays and decor, a bustling food village, bars and hangout areas and the very best of Irish contemporary and traditional music to enjoy, just for adults.

On opening night, Wednesday, the eve of St. Patrick’s Day, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist LYRA will be joined on the Main Stage by special guest electronic pop queen Soulé and many more.

The Festival Programme is available now at and will continue to be updated as more events are announced. All daytime events will be free of charge, on a first come, first served basis, while some night time events will require a pre-purchased ticket.
