St. Paddy’s Day has always been a great excuse to dress up and drink/eat all things green. Whether it be celebrating at a traditional Irish Pub, or gathering with friends at home and cooking up some home-made Irish recipes, there are many ways to enjoy this festive day.

First thing’s first –

Go Green

Whether you prefer to be decked out head to toe in green or you just want to add a hint of the honorary colour, show some Irish spirit! Here are a couple of casual St.Paddy’s Day inspo looks below:

Celebrate the Irish way

Dine out at one of best Irish pubs in the city, to get the full St. Paddy’s experience – with traditional Irish food and drink, including some green beer of course.

Stop on by Ceili Cottage on Queen East – the perfect pub to wear your green, gather with friends and celebrate Paddy’s in true Irish form. They offer a wide range of premium Irish and Canadian craft beers, live music, great whiskies and delicious Irish food.

If the bar/pub scene isn’t your thing, check out the St.Patrick’s Day parade. It starts at noon on March 19 at the intersection of Bloor and St. George.

Cook up some Irish favourites

If you’d rather keep it low key – celebrate with friends at home with some good food and drinks.
Cook up some favourites including Irish stew or Shepherd’s pie.
