St. Patrick’s Day, a day when people around the world wear green, is celebrated on March 17. That means lots of partying, beer, traditional Irish music, leprechauns and shamrocks.
Swing by the Plaza de Cibeles Fountain & Puerta Alcala as it illuminates green and makes Madrid part of the global commemoration of the St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations. These city icons are joining other international monuments such as The London Eye, Empire State Building, Table Mountain and Niagara Falls in Ireland’s “green” initiative to promote their country across the world.
Simply follow the leprechaun hats and you’ll find the party!
Later (or in between), we suggest going to Irish pubs to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Madrid, which is home to the largest Irish colony in Spain. All the pubs are certain to have the Guinness flowing and the fiddle playing. You can check out a complete list of Irish pubs here.
Start the week joining the fun at the James Joyce Pub in Madrid for the St. Patrick’s Week Party, starting with an open mic night on Monday 12th at 21.30h. There will be delicious Food Specials all week.
