Paddy’s Day Tralee

St. Patrick’s Day, 17th March is Ireland’s national holiday and is celebrated with events and parades worldwide. Here you can join us in The Grand Hotel for a day of fun.

This event will commence after the parade on Saturday 17th March 2012 and will include magic, music, bubbles, balloons, toys, tatoo’s, games, juggling and much more.


Saint Patrick is the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland. St Patrick is credited with bringing christianity to Ireland. Most of what is known about him comes from his two works; the Confessio, a spiritual autobiography, and his Epistola, a denunciation of British mistreatment of Irish christians. Saint Patrick described himself as a “most humble-minded man, pouring forth a continuous paean of thanks to his Maker for having chosen him as the instrument whereby multitudes who had worshipped idols and unclean things had become the people of God.”

When the Irish say that St. Patrick chased the snakes out of Ireland, what they don’t tell you is that he was the only one who saw any snakes!
