Romantic Castles of Ireland turn Green for St. Patricks Day

Markree Castle Turns Green

Markree Castle was delighted to take part in Tourism Ireland’s #GlobalGreening campaign for St. Patrick’s Day along with some of the most famous landmarks globally. This campaign represented a beacon of light and hope across Ireland and the world as we look forward to the day when we can open our doors and welcome back our guests when we travel again. Thank you to the very talented Millie from McMorrow Irish Dance for her incredible Irish dancing.

Lighting up Green

The chance was there for everyone to get involved in the St. Patrick’s Day celebration and join the Romantic Castles of Ireland, Ireland, and the rest of the world lighting up green for St. Patrick's Day. To send a message of hope, solidarity, and friendship across the globe, we invited everyone to take part in Tourism Ireland's Light a Green Candle initiative. We lit a green candle at 7pm and asked everyone to upload a photo of it to social media using #GlobalGreening.


Mr. Higgins selected to take part in Tralee's Virtual St. Patrick's Day Parade

The 2021 Tralee St. Patrick's Day Parade went online, green, and global. Ballyseede Castle was thrilled that resident Irish Wolfhound, Mr. Higgins, had been selected to take part in the virtual parade. He was, of course, one of the stars of the show.  

Mr. Higgins wasn't the only member of Romantic Castles of Ireland in a celebratory mood this St. Patrick's Day. His cousins Oscar in Cabra Castle, Róisín in Markree Castle and Duke and Rí were also dressed up enjoying the virtual celebrations this year.
