St Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in Ireland but celebrated worldwide. On the 17th of March the Irish community in London (and everyone else) get together to participate in anything from parades, festivals, the wearing of green to loads of drinking! So what better way to prepare you for this festive day than list the best Irish pubs in London for you to get your pints of Guinness’s on?
The Auld Shillelagh
At the friendly but small pub the Auld it is all about the booze and the banter.
Auld Shillelagh, 105 Stoke Newington Church Street, Stoke Newington, London N16 0UD
Fancy going to the oldest Irish pub in London? Then head to Tipperary which celebrated its 400th bday back in 2006.
The Tipperary, 66 Fleet Street, London EC4Y 1HT
Is a little less irish and a little bit more bustling your style? Then go for an awesome St Paddy’s day celebration at Covent garden located Porterhouse.
The Porterhouse, 21-22 Maiden Lane, London WC2E 7NA
If drinks are at the top of your priority list then you should check out Porterhouse neighbour the Harp. Here the pints are served from traditional hand-pumps.
The Harp, 47 Chandos Place, London WC2N 4HS
The Boston Arms
Is the right choice if you want a bigger unrefined pub and a more down-to-earth, boozy St Patrick day with its reasonably prices, live music and space.
Boston Arms, 178 Junction Road, London N19 5QQ
That’s it, Happy St Paddy’s Day 🙂
