Whether you’re enjoying a parade or heading to an Irish pub, St. Patrick's Day is the time to celebrate by dancing and dining on Irish cuisine. In New Orleans, this is quite easy to do. Of course, you could always invite some friends to your Springs at Fremaux Town Center apartment home, but if you want to go out on the town to celebrate all things Irish, here are some great options around New Orleans to consider.
New Orleans has multiple St. Patrick's Day parades, so we hope you’ll be able to find time for one of the three parades below:
On Thursday, March 17, the Downtown Irish Club will hold its parade at 6 p.m. This is the official parade for the holiday and will travel a route from the Old Ninth Ward to the French Quarter, stopping at several pubs along the way.
Saturday, March 19 at 6 p.m. marks that start of the Italian-American St. Joseph's Parade. Extending through the French Quarter, the parade includes a variety of floats and marching bands.
The Louisiana Irish-Italian Parade will be held Sunday, March 20 at noon. Check the parade route here.
With Irish Whisky and Bloody Mary's made using a secret, signature recipe, Erin Rose is an Irish pub through and through. The most famous item on the menu is the Killer Poboys, a New Orleans style sandwich with an international flair. Grab one of these awesome sandwiches and some Irish whisky to enjoy the perfect blend of New Orleans cuisine and Irish tastes.
Located in the French Quarter, Ryan's Irish Pub is considered one of the best Irish pubs in the city and it’s just 30 minutes from Springs at Fremaux Town Center. Visit the pub during the day for a peaceful Irish meal, or stop in at night for live music and a lively party scene. Either way you will enjoy Irish food and beer to celebrate the holiday.
