Sorry, the places listed below don't have online bookings available, but we hope you still find this list useful for your night out!


Another of Brighton's infamous Irish pubs, you can definitely expect a grand party affair from this sprightly bunch. From drinks deals on Guinness and the pulling of a super rowdy crowd to live music and boisterous charmers around the dance floor, St Patrick's Day at Molly Malone's is as traditional a shindig as to be found on the emerald isle itself. 

Host to one of the biggest St Patrick's Day parties in Brighton, you're sure to hear about this green laden bash weeks before it arrives. A party that spills out onto the streets and continues throughout the weekend, this is an all out themed affair that showcases live Irish dancing, live music from 2pm to midnight and gallons of Guinness. St Patrick's Day at the Fiddler's Elbow is one of the biggest party's of the year. 

It's all kicking off at the Freemasons Tavern this St Patrick's Day weekend: they've launched their Irish themed menu, with a special St Patrick's shot and cocktail list available throughout the weekend. The ever popular Hove haunt will be full to brim with emerald giveaways, and top class resident DJs will be injecting the party spirit from 9pm until late. 

If it's cheap pints and craic-ing music you're after, JW Lennon's is your place. The weekend ended on Sunday, but these guys are keeping the party spirit alive with a special evening of folk music to commemorate good ol' St Patrick. There'll be no fluffy hats or other such nonsense - just great music, cheap drinks and an awesome atmosphere in this ever-popular Irish-American watering hole in Brighton.
