St. Patrick’s Festival invites Ireland and the world to reconnect in Dublin in a global celebration of Irish Arts, Culture and Heritage.

Festival 2023 will be a landmark celebration, the largest in scale and ambition to date, a moment for the nation, and for our tribe of 80 million across the world, to connect and reflect, celebrate and welcome.

The world-famous St. Patrick’s Festival Parade in Dublin takes place on Friday 17th March 2023 starting at 12 midday. Winding its way through the streets of Ireland’s capital city from Parnell Street on the north to Kevin Street on the south, our national St. Patrick’s Day Parade will delight and entertain the hundreds of thousands that line the parade route. A cast of over 4,000 of Ireland’s most dynamic and innovative performers, musicians, dancers and artists will be joined by world-class marching bands who travel from around the globe to take part in this amazing bucket-list event.

There is no better way to enjoy all the colour and spectacle of the St. Patrick’s Festival Parade than from the comfort of your own seat in one of our Grandstands. ​

Each Grandstand offers covered, tiered, allocated seating, strategically located at five different areas along the Parade route. See and experience the Parade from a unique location, as our Grandstand Hosts provide lively commentary to our guests, telling the story of the parade as it unfolds right in front of you.​
