Going Green For St. Patrick’s Day

Dublin, the capital of the Republic of Ireland, is the center of all the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations around the world. Since I arrived late afternoon on Tuesday, the city¬† has turned more green as it prepares for St. Patrick’s Day on Tuesday, March 17th.

The city started celebrating early with the St. Patrick’s Festival on Saturday, with cultural events held throughout the city continuing through Tuesday.

Everywhere I turned, there was green!

The streetlights were green, lights over the streets were green and even the Westin Hotel turned green.

Many of the buildings are lit in green too. It definitely feels more festive.

The department stores are green: Brown Thomas, Clery’s and Penney’s.

All of the city’s large, iconic buildings are green.

If you’re in Dublin already, or on your way, you are sure to be greeted with green wherever you go. And if you’re not in Dublin, or Ireland for that matter, Tourism Ireland, with the help of actor LIam Neeson, is encouraging everyone to #GoGreen4PatricksDay with this video

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
