It’s time to dust off your shamrocks, whack on your best green clobber and grab a Guinness because St Patrick’s Day is here.
St Patrick’s Day observes the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The holiday has evolved into a joyous celebration of Irish Culture, taking place on the 17 March. Think Guinness, leprechauns and an abundance of green attire.
Falling on a Friday this year, it is the perfect excuse night to get out on the town and have some fun. So whether you’re Irish or not, raid your wardrobe for all things green and head out in search of some good fortune.
With help from us at the Hoot, and the luck of the Irish, here are the best places in and around Leeds to celebrate St Patrick’s Day this year.
