The Best Hertfordshire Pubs to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day


Every year on March 17th we raise a glass in the name of the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick. With distant Irish ties the McMullen family will be out in force to make the most of this big day in and around Hertfordshire.

We’ve put together a list of some of our best pubs to visit on the day to help you celebrate in true St. Paddy’s style!

Our shortlist is not exclusive to those celebrating, you can find your local Mac’s pub HERE.

This quirky pub in the town centre is full of surprises, from retro furniture and snakes and ladders on the tables it’s an all together unique experience. With old stables transformed into a classic arcade room and barn exclusively for big events this is the place to be for any special day.

The White Hart have teamed up with Jameson to offer a huge £300 bar tab for anyone who fancies a refreshing Jameson, Ginger and Lime. Just ask at the bar! Enjoy your Jameson’s whilst listening to some brilliant live music from Daniel Lumley & Elliot Porter from 8pm.

Located on the river in the town centre, The Saracens is one of Ware’s staple watering holes and a great location for hand made pizzas, towering burgers and tasty hot dogs.

The St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Ware kick off from 12pm with music from Paddy Findlay, Lloyd and his Ukes as well as Natasha Strange. If you’re hungry, you’d be barmy not to try some of their specials on the day including the ‘Ultimate Paddy’s Day Burger’ or the Irish inspired Potato, Leek & Bacon Pizza made fresh to order!

The White Swan is classic London pub (okay okay, not in Hertfordshire) situated just off Vauxhall Bridge and in the heart of Pimlico. Over the whole weekend they are the home of sport and festivities with the 6 Nations finals shown through the pub and Guinness flowing.

Head down to the Swan on Saturday from 3pm to be in with the chance of winning some exciting Jameson prizes, and from 8pm to hear some great tunes from D’ukes.

The Crocodile, the only pub in the UK that bares the name (for what reason, the jury is still out!) will most definitely be a hub of Irish banter and fun all thanks to the Manager Pam who, being Irish herself, will be sure to make the most of the occasion!

Shamrock balloon making for the kids during the day, as well as a leprechaun hunt through the pub and beer garden this will be a great event for the family.

For the grown-ups, The Croc is hosting a Whiskey tasting event on Sunday night for just £7.50 per person with 5 different Whiskeys to choose from. For more information give the pub a call on 01992 623263.

The unofficial Brewery Tap, just around the corner from the Hertford Brewery, The Woolpack have stocked enough Guinness to sink a small barge (being next to the river we might give it a go!) and plenty of Jameson’s to accompany it.

Manager Ryan Murphy will be digging up his Irish roots and jigging around the bar with excitement over the weekend and believe us that is something you cannot miss.
