The origins of St. Patrick’s Day may be rooted in the Emerald Isle, but you don’t need to be Irish to celebrate this fun-loving holiday. Luckily, March 17 is on a Saturday this year, so you can expect all of the typical watering holes to be full to the brim with pints of Guinness and a whole lot of green. These three Long Island St. Patrick’s Day bars will certainly be no exception.
Celebrate Irish Heritage at these St. Patrick’s Day Bars
The St. James
This year, celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at The St. James, located in the heart of Mineola. At this local neighborhood pub, the party will start at 8:00 a.m. sharp for a complimentary brunch buffet with all of the fixings of a traditional Irish breakfast. It will last until 10:00 a.m.
However, if you can’t make it that early, come whenever! The entire day at The St. James will be filled with live Irish music, including bag pipes and drums. From 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., there will be terrific drink specials, like $3 pints of Guinness.
Last but not least, The St. James will be giving out tons of terrific prizes and giveaways that you won’t want to miss. Besides, with Seamus the Leprechaun potentially making an appearance, who wouldn’t want to visit this St. Patrick’s Day bar?
The Nutty Irishman
Make your way out to The Nutty Irishman in Farmingdale on March 17 for an out-of-this-world, blow-out St. Patrick’s Day bonanza. In addition to amazing drink specials and a special Irish menu, there will be plenty of authentic Celtic music playing throughout the day.
You can expect bag pipers, step dancers, a DJ and much, much more. Also, if you stop by on March 11, The Nutty Irishman will be hosting a big party for the Farmingdale St. Patrick’s Day Parade starting at 11 a.m. Eat, drink and dance the day away at either of these St. Patrick’s Day parties!
