Bank Holidays Northern Ireland 2022

Bank holidays in Northern Ireland 2022

Northern Ireland has ten bank holidays every year. This is in contrast to the eight in England and Wales and nine in Scotland. The additional two to England and Wales are St. Patrick’s Day, 17th March, and the anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne, 12th July. Scotland celebrates St. Andrews Day, 30th November.

This year however, in 2022, there is an additional bank holiday on Friday 3rd June to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The Spring bank holiday has also been pushed back to Thursday 2nd June so we can all have a long weekend.

For bank holidays in the rest of the UK this year please visit bank holidays in England and Wales 2022 and bank holidays in Scotland 2022.
