What more could you ask for this St Patrick’s Day?

1. St Patrick’s Cathedral

If you spot a light green roof in the distance in front of a tall spire-like building with a cross on top, you’ve found St Patrick’s Cathedral, which was built in honour of the patron saint. Did you know that the Guinness family was instrumental in helping to restore it?

2. Patrick Street Dublin

Follow the road to the left of St Patrick’s Cathedral and you’ll find Patrick Street. Not only will the St Patrick’s Day Festival parade be going through there, but it leads to Christ Church Cathedral. It plays an important role in Irish history as it has been around since 1030. Even Viking treasures were discovered in the area!

3. St Patrick’s Tower

Keep an eye out for a towering green dome as little bit closer to the Guinness Storehouse, complete with a statue of St Patrick with crozier and mitre on top. Found just off Roe Lane, this smock windmill (the oldest in Europe) used to help power the old Roe and Co. distillery.

4. Towards Trinity College

Try to spot the large, sprawling stone building that encases the campus of Trinity College. In there, you’ll find the Book of Kells – a manuscript of the four Gospels and New Testament that dates back to the 9th century. Saint Patrick was insistent that the scriptures be preserved and is the reason we’re able to view it today.

5. The Spire

You won’t miss one of the more well-known monuments in Dublin City centre. The Spire is a large needle that’s located on O’Connell Street. The area is where the St Patrick’s Day Festival parade is starting and it’s the perfect place to watch it from too.

6. The Wicklow Mountains

It’s hard to forget about the rolling Wicklow Mountains to the South. Saint Patrick travelled by sea to Wicklow when he first arrived in Ireland. The locals who threw stones at his boat didn’t know he’d have such a huge impact on the country in the years to come.
