Patrick Street is an Irishmarker folk group.

The band was formed in Dublinmarker in 1986 with Kevin Burke (formerly of The Bothy Band) on fiddle, Jackie Daly (De Dannan) on button accordion, Andy Irvine (Sweeney's Men, Planxty) on bouzouki and vocals, and Arty McGlynn (Van Morrison, Planxty) on guitar. McGlynn later left the group, and other members were added: Ged Foley (The House Band, Battlefield Band) on guitar, and Declan Masterson on uilleann pipes and keyboard. They have also played with Donal Lunny, Bill Whelan and Enda Walsh. Jackie Daly left shortly after recording "On the Fly". On this album John Carty joined the band.

In 2008, the furniture company MFI used Patrick Street's cover of "Music for a Found Harmonium" (originally composed by Simon Jeffes from The Penguin Cafe Orchestra), in the background of a TV advertisement. The same track was used near the end of the movie Napoleon Dynamite, as well as in the movie It's All Gone Pete Tong.
