It feels like everyone in the country is gearing up for tomorrow's Paddy's Day celebrations but the craic is kicking off in Dublin today.

The St Patrick's Festival will run from Thursday to Sunday and one of tonight's events is a huge ceili in the city centre.

The ceili is taking place on Earlsfort Terrace, with members of the public urged to learn the steps, enjoy traditional live music and soak up the atmosphere.

Irish-dancing champion Dearbhla Lennon will host the event from 4.30pm, with 'expert caller' Jerry O’Reilly leading people through céilí classics such as the Siege of Ennis, Shoe the Donkey and the Stack of Barley.

To facilitate the craic, the street will be closed until 9pm.

If your Irish dancing days are a distant memory, don't worry - as there will be demonstrations by the dancers of Brooks Academy and music from the Matt Cunningham Band.

This should be brilliant!
