Whether you're an Irish ex-pat, have Irish blood, or just love a good ol' Gaelic knees-up, St Paddy's Day, on March 17, is a chance to celebrate the rich heritage of the Emerald Isle. In Sydney, there are a bunch of ways to get involved. There's the official St Patrick's Day Parade and Festival (now in its 42nd year) on March 21, which transforms the Rocks into a St Patrick's Day-palooza of live music, Irish language sessions, Irish dancing, facing painting, handicrafts, festival bars and food stalls.
But if you want to observe the saint's day itself, this year March 17 falls on a Wednesday, and since the time-honoured way to toast ol' St Pat is with a well-poured Guinness, you can expect great craic and pints aplenty in Sydney's favourite Irish pubs. Here's where to cheer "Sláinte!" on the big day in Sydney.
