St Patrick’s Day, which takes place on the anniversary of the death of Ireland’s patron saint, has been celebrated with parades and festivities since the 17th century. These days, it ranks as the most widely celebrated national festival of them all. Paris is particularly famous for its celebrations - and it’s no wonder! Last year, the city lit up key monuments like the Moulin Rouge and Sacre Coeur in bright green to celebrate Ireland’s big day.
Events will be taking place around the city to mark St Patrick’s Day. Why not start the day by putting on your finest green clothes and spending some time in the Centre Culture Irlandais which will be celebrating with a cèilidh and traditional Irish music. The evening will best be spent consuming Guinness in at least one of Paris’ Irish pubs - you could start the night at the Cork and Cavan on the banks of the Canal St. Martin and then throw a few shapes on the dancefloor of O’Sullivans in Montmartre or Corcoran’s on Rue Saint-André des Arts close to the River Seine.
Even if you don’t hail from the Emerald Isle, you’re sure to appreciate the benefits of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Paris. You’ll find that many of the Irish pubs will be putting on meal deals or beer offers that you can take advantage of. Check out the O’Sullivans or Corcorans websites for details of offers for each of the specific pubs. If you’d like to do something different, head to Disneyland where you can celebrate under the fireworks with your favourite Disney characters by the Sleeping Beauty Castle.
