Celebrate St Patrick in Dublin

Celebrate St Patrick in DublinTravelers in Dublin on St Patrick's Day may wish to book their hostels early to guarantee the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the annual five-day festival.

St Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and is thought to have been a missionary in Ireland in the fifth century.

The streets will come to life on 12th March 2009, when the St Patrick's Day celebration kicks off with a celebration of the theme 'the sky is the limit'.

An array of free street spectacles will provide much entertainment for backpackers as they explore the Irish capital.

Street theater, performances of Irish music, dance extravaganzas and a treasure hunt are just some of the events due to take place.

Comedy and film nights will build up to the much-anticipated St Patrick's Day Parade, which is the focus of the festival and takes place on 17th March 2009.
