Up for taking on our Liverpool St Patricks Day Pub Crawl…
Ahhhh St Patricks Day! The one day of the year we find any excuse to dress up in green, white, and orange…..down as much Guinness and Whiskey as possible and talk to anyone who will listen about what percentage of Irish we are!
Like the Irish, us scousers love any excuse for a few drinks and the city really comes alive with traditional Irish music, ale, food and endless Bewitched, Westlife and Boyzone appreciation! We’ve put together this handy little Irish pub crawl with 12 ways to celebrate St Patricks Day in Liverpool so you can get the party started from 6am, who’s phoning in sick then?
Of course we will be venturing out too and being men & women of our word we will be following the same route, so maybe see you out and about for a Guinness (or three!).
