Grogan's is a cosy nook that's tucked away from the madness of the parade, but close enough for a pint or two before braving the crowds. The historic Grafton Street pub not only offers a place to relax, but it's got a menu of delicious Irish plates to fill you up before heading out.
St. Patrick's Day In Dublin
St. Patrick's Day comes but once a year, and when Dublin celebrates this patriotic holiday, they go hard. That means starting the day with a proper Irish breakfast, covering yourself in as much green as possible and drinking an unholy amount of Guinness. It's not all about partying at the parade though, as plenty of pubs, bars and venues are hosting gatherings across the city. From knocking back pints in Temple Bar to dancing all night at the Storehouse rooftop, Dublin is bursting with St. Patrick's Day events you won't want to miss.
While not technically a St. Paddy's Day party, this patriotic get-together is something the big guy himself would definitely approve of. Join some of the biggest names in the city's hip-hop scene for a night of floorfillers, all in aid of helping the homeless population.
Why have one day of festivities, when you can have five? The home of Guinness will be hosting a five-day programme of unmissable events including live music and DJs, specially-created menus, and a newly-extended rooftop bar giving you incredible views of the city.
The Long Hall Pub is one of Dublin's oldest and most famous pubs, so it would seem somewhat natural to revel in St. Patrick's Day cheer within its signature red walls. Not in the mood for chugging pints of Guinness? No worries, there's a whole load of whiskies waiting to be explored.
Picture this, St. Patrick is done banishing snakes for day, so what does he do now? He only goes and gets lit at brunch, listening to hip-hop with his homies, duh. Pay homage to Dublin's OG with this epic party at Opium where dynamic dishes come with cocktails and criac.
St. Patrick's Day at the River Bar is going to be met with DJs playing the best of Latin hits, pints and bottles from as little as €3.50. Perfectly situated in the heart of the city centre, the place is set to blend South American partying with Irish craic for one incredible night.
Wigwam is hosting a very special St. Paddy's eve party, with the very aptly named Research x Slither. Channeling underground electronic superstars and incorporating elements of gabber, this club night is set to pop off in a way the man himself would be proud of.
If St. Patrick were still here, you know he would thoroughly encourage partying in his honour with an all-night rave. Which was probably what Pygmalion were thinking when they decided to invite Hammer & Cromby and DJ Deece to soundtrack this annual celebration.
