There is much to do, much to see, and plenty of memories of your car travels to take home. The week of St. Patrick’s day, people traveling through Ireland by car can participate in a number of exciting activities: spectacular fireworks displays, open-air music festivals, street theater performances and a huge parade. Everyone wears a shamrock, a type of clover that is native to Ireland. Children wear green, orange and white badges. Girls tie their hair with green ribbons. The biggest celebrations are in Dublin, so plan your car trip itinerary in such a way that you are in the city by March 17. The celebration kicks of with the Downpatrick parade, which features an average of 2000 performers and 82 floats.
