    Festival Quarter Days at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks

    A magical urban daytime Festival for all ages to enjoy, in the heart of Dublin, from March 17 – 20, from 12pm to 6pm daily. 

    Family fun and community spirit are integral to St. Patrick’s Festival. We look forward to welcoming all to Festival Quarter Days at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks, Dublin, from Thursday March 17 to Sunday March 20, from 12pm to 6pm daily. 

    Enjoy four free days of family friendly frolics, from performance, theatre and giant games to Céilí Mór, music and play. Immerse in talks, film screenings, interactive games, circus and science shows. Enjoy the thrills and spills of circus, games and street theatre performances. Get into the true St. Patrick’s Day spirit with the return of the much loved Céilí Mór. Join the conversation with a selection of always engaging and often challenging talks and panels, as well as many live performances every day from rock, pop and hip hop to traditional, classical and more. 

    Connect and relax in the many comfortable seating areas in the Irish Food & Craft Village. Feast on contemporary and diverse Irish cooking from the cream of Ireland’s food truck community. Enjoy the sweet sounds of live entertainment and DJs from the Festival Quarter Bandstand.
