4- Celebrate St Paddy’s in a traditional Irish Pub
If you want to feel the real Irish spirit, we recommend you to head up to one of these two authentic Irish bars. The Porterhouse well known for its large choice of beers from all around the world and a special whiskey bar upstairs. It can get a little bit busy, but you can definitely feel the Irish vibe, very much appreciated.
We also recommend the Waxy O’Connor’s, with a great atmosphere, including beautiful tiled floors, you are immediately thrown into another world. A must see in London, and especially on St Patrick’s Day, where the atmosphere will be very festive.
But that’s not all of it! There are also some family event planned on Saturday at the Camden Market, where kids can learn the traditional Irish dancing, get their faces painted and much more. You can also head to City Hall, where you will see some free exhibition of Irish art!
