Why I want to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland

Today is St. Patrick’s Day. One of the items on my bucket list to is visit Ireland during  St. Patrick’s holiday celebration.

In Ireland, the St. Patrick’s holiday is typically celebrated over a 4-5 day period. There are many exhibits to enjoy, including: a parade, a fair, a craft beer and food market and more.

There is a lot of great artistic talent in Dublin and I think it would be great to see their parade live. When I was in Dublin, I saw a lot of talented artists including: men pretending to be statues, an artist creating a dog out of sand and singers playing on the streets.

To honour this special day, many of the iconic buildings are turning their lights green. It looks so pretty and special and I’d love the opportunity to capture it with photos.

One of the main reasons I want to go to Ireland during the St. Patrick holiday is the atmosphere. The Irish are friendly, welcoming and really make you feel included. I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate than to grab a pint of Guinness in a cozy pub and listen to traditional Irish folk music.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone.
