12 months ago

Looking for somewhere to celebrate St Patrick’s Day? We’ve gathered together our favourite Irish bars in Manchester, plus a few ‘sort-of ‘ Irish pubs like The Lass and The Pev just because we like them. (And because everyone’s Irish on St Patrick’s Day after all).

They’re all sure to be full of great craic and even better pints of Guinness this Paddy’s Day. So go and celebrate your Irish roots (imaginary or not) and wear that big green leprechaun hat with pride.
