Armagh is at the heart of celebrating the life of Saint Patrick and the ‘Home Of Saint Patrick Festival’ promises a lively and varied showcase of the best culture, music, song and dance. Saint Patrick still fascinates as one of the most enduring of all the saints. Renowned for converting Ireland to Christianity centuries ago, his profile remains iconic and international. It was in Armagh that Patrick began his Christian mission in Ireland and established the city as the country’s spiritual capital. During the Festival, visitors can explore Armagh County Museum and Armagh Robinson Library which house artefacts, collections, rare books and illuminated manuscripts which reflect the city’s leading role in early Christian Ireland.
