Bray is packed full of incredible experiences that you can’t get anywhere else so why not bring the whole family to the St. Patrick’s Festival which returns March 10th until March 19th 2018. Enjoy a fun fair, live music, an open-air céilí, puppet shows, street theatre, walks, trails and of course the main event the Festival Parade. It’s 6 days of great family fun. It’s also the perfect time to see some amazing performances at Mermaid Arts Centre or simply catch some live music at one of the many venues throughout the town. President of the Bray & District Chamber of Commerce, Pat Ó Súilleabháin said ‘Bray has now become a destination to help celebrate the spirit of St. Patrick. In the past 3 years, there have been over 100k visitors to the town alone.

Parade The Bray Parade which is one of the largest on the east coast will start at the earlier time of 2 pm and we are expecting thousands to line the town’s streets like previous years.

Watch creative acts, floats, the pageantry, colour, music, dance and entertainment from the many participants on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th.
