2020 Cancellations

Responses to Queries

Q: Can I get a refund for the grandstand tickets I purchased?

A: We are currently dealing with a large volume of queries regarding refunds. We absolutely will issue refunds to all grandstand ticket holders; however due to the administrative and operational pressure we are currently under, please be aware this may take up to a few weeks.

We really appreciate your support and bearing with us during this challenging time. We hope we’ll see you in future years.

Q: Should I cancel my trip to Ireland?

A: As of now there has been no advice issued by the relevant public health authorities to restrict travel to Ireland. If you’re concerned, do make sure to check your country’s public health and travel advice, and you can also check the HSE website and read the information available there.

Public health and safety advice can only be issued by the relevant authorities, so the best thing to do is to make sure you feel you are in a position to make the right decision for your own travel.

Q: I am a trader, will there be alternative arrangements made for traders affected by the cancellation of Festival Villlage? Who should I contact with regard to a refund?

Please continue to liaise with traders@stpatricksfestival.ie with all queries relating to traders.

Every year we welcome bands from around the world to take part in St. Patrick's Festival, Dublin. If you would like to get involved, please note that we are fully programmed until 2022.

If you would like to apply for 2022 or beyond, you can send a brief overview of your band to bands@stpatricksfestival.ie and a member of our team will follow up when possible.



Please note, the 2020 Parade has been cancelled.

We at St Patricks Festival strive to be helpful and facilitating where we can, to those who come out to see the Dublin Parade. If you, a friend or family member are a wheelchair user, you can come and view the parade in one of our designated viewing areas.

These areas are held for wheelchair users to give you some more space and comfort, whilst the parade goes by.

If you have a debilitating condition or special access requirement, this is where “Priority Viewing” can help. This is another section of the Parade that we hold for those who may need more space, to enjoy the parade.


We provide three along the Parade Route:

  • 1 at the O Connell Street North LUAS platform
  • 1 at Westmoreland Street beside the Grandstands
  • 1 at St Patricks Cathedral beside the Grandstands


In front of Bank of Ireland on College Green.

A helpful map is coming soon!


St Patricks Festival want to make our events fully accessible, for all to enjoy. We want to make it possible for disabled young people and adults to make memories at the National Parade.

In addition to the a normal portaloo at each of our Wheelchair area, there will be a Mobiloo with a hoist and changing bench made available for use. This will be parked up on D’Olier Street (Fleet St. Junction).

The Mobiloo will also be available for use at the Festival Village on Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th March.


  • We would ask that if you are in a wheelchair, you apply for one of the Wheelchair viewing areas as opposed to Priority, please.
  • Apply within by filling out the request form and we will be back to you as soon as possible.
  • Please note there is limited capacity in each of the above areas so we cannot guarantee admission at this point. However, please be reassured that we will endeavour to satisfy your needs.
