Everything you need to know about this year’s St. Patrick’s Festival Kilkenny taking place from 15 – 19 March.
Last year saw us host our biggest St. Patrick’s Festival Kilkenny ever with 6 days of events! It was a huge success and we were delighted to welcome over 100,000 people to the city for the festival. This year we’re looking forward to another great event, with 5-days of festival fun and entertainment in the medieval Kilkenny city in Ireland’s Ancient East.

You can expect live traditional Irish music, American marching bands a Festival Market, carnival rides, workshops, family activities and street entertainment.
