When? Friday March 17 2017
What? The feast day of Irish patron Saint Patrick and the perfect excuse to drink, drink, drink.
Where? Across Paris

Thread a shamrock through your buttonhole and bust out your finest green outfit for Saint Patrick’s Day on Friday March 17 2017. If anybody knows how to have a good time, it’s the Irish, and on Paddy’s day Parisians take lessons from the Emerald Isle on how to have the craic. Pop down to the Centre Culturel Irlandais for traditional music sessions and a cèilidh (Gaelic folk dancing) before hitting the pub for a few pints of Guinness. Pubs around the city will drape their bars with orange and green and serve their finest brews in honour of the saint who chased all the snakes out of Ireland. What better excuse for mid-week pints? Here’s to Paddy. Sláinte!
