Food & DrinkLifestyle | by Harry Mills

You don’t have to go to Ireland to enjoy the party atmosphere of St Patrick’s Day 2019, there’s plenty going on right here in London. The three day celebration lands annually on March 17 (a Sunday in 2019), but this year if you are looking for more than a few pints of the black stuff, these are the best places to celebrate.


If you cant wait until Friday, Homeboy, the heart of modern Irish hospitality in London, will be pulling out all the stops from the 13thto the 17thMarch with visiting Irish drinks brands, special cocktails and a boozy Irish brunch on the day itself. Guests can indulge in comfort food, including a full Irish, dressed fries and Irish stew, along with delicious drinks with Roe & Co Whiskey, live Irish music throughout the day and some of Ireland’s best loved DJ’s including Eddie Kay, CiCi Kavanagh and Arveene Juthan.

This non-stop party will be going off until the wee hours, with Irish dancers and the Official Guinness World Record’s TALLEST LEPRECHAUN* making an appearance. (Yes, you’ve read that correctly.)
