Other information.

Although St. Brigid's Day is always the 1st of February, the public holiday is celebrated on the first Monday of February (from 2023 onward). The only exception is if the 1st of February falls on a Friday. In that case, the public holiday will take place on that Friday.

In 2022, an extra once-off holiday was celebrated on March 18th, 2022.

Good Friday is a normal working day in Ireland. However, certain companies may give their staff the day off.

If New Year's Day, Saint Patrick's Day, Christmas Day, or Saint Stephen's Day fall on the weekend, then an employee is entitled to one of the following:

  • An extra holiday day (annual leave).
  • A paid day off within a month of the holiday in question.
  • An extra day's pay.
