Important Irish Dates For 2024

Planning & Advice

There’s a lot to consider when choosing your wedding date. Whether you are looking to get married on a bank holiday weekend or to avoid major sporting events, this list of Important Irish dates for 2024 will come in handy!

Here’s why it’s helpful to have an understanding of the Important Irish dates for 2024:

  • Getting married on a major sports day might mean that some of your guests aren’t able to attend (unless you send out Save The Dates well in advance) or that some of the sports fans may be distracted at different points in the day.
  • Some times in the year will be busier for suppliers (like Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day for florists), so if flowers are a priority for you, check the calendar before setting your date.
  • Certain times of the year will be busy for guests (such as holidays in the summer), so you’ll want to send out Save The Dates about a year ahead of time.
