The holiday season is approaching quickly, making it the perfect time to embark on an international vacation to experience some new celebrations. Catholicism remains the dominant religion in Ireland at 84%, which means there are plenty of opportunities to attend Christmas-themed events. Here are just a few upcoming holiday events in Ireland you just don’t want to miss:
