Dublin Airport is expecting huge numbers for Paddy's Day celebrations in the coming days
The country is buzzing this week.
Ireland may still be very much in recovery mode, but there is a lot of excitement around the place for St. Patrick's Day, as reflected by Dublin Airport's anticipated passenger numbers.
In total, over 370,000 people are expected to arrive in and department from Dublin Airport over the coming days for the March 17 celebrations.
Coupled with the Cheltenham festival and Ireland's final Six Nations game against Scotland this weekend, numbers may even by higher.
The airport will be welcoming passengers with a host of Paddy's Day celebrations in Terminal 1 and 2, with festive decorations and musical entertainment provided.
Speaking ahead of the event, Siobhán O’Donnell, a spokesperson for the daa, has said:
“Once again Dublin Airport is participating in the Global Greening.
“This is our third year to green the airport and we’re lighting up more locations around the airport campus bringing the St. Patrick’s Day festival to life at the airport.”
Dublin Airport has seen a significant 17% rise in passenger numbers since the turn of the year, with 3.4 million people passing through the country's most prominent airport.
