Ireland's biggest bear festival happens right after St. Patrick's Day every year. Hundreds of bears come out - including cubs, chubs and admirers - for a weekend of parties, pub crawls and drag shows. Live musical acts keep the party going all day and all night. The event culminates with the crowning of Mr. Bear Ireland, hosted by Ireland's most famous drag queen, Panti from Pantibar.
