Do they have Halloween in Ireland? You bet!
St. Patrick’s festivals: What can we say about Saint Patrick's Day that hasn't been said before.  Not a lot.  This is one of the Worlds largest festivals, and parades take place all over the world.  If you can manage it, get to a St Patrick's Day parade in Dublin or some other Irish city.  Do remember that it's St. Patricks Day.. at a push - Paddy's Day, but Never Patti's Day.  That's a no-no!
