We talk about St Patrick’s day which is celebrated in Melbourne with good food
St Patricks Day is an Irish day and its on the 17th of March. It is a celebration of Irish culture and it is a day where St Patrick was born. St Patrick is one of Ireland’s saints. Whilst in Ireland it’s spring in Australia its Autumn.
Here it is all green and many of the pubs here have their St Patrick’s day parties. This year due to the Coronavirus there aren’t many St Pat’s celebrations. People celebrate it in Irish pubs with Guinness and Irish food. Guinness is an Irish beer which is dark and fruity in flavour.
If you choose not to go out this year, here’s how you can celebrate it at home with cake and Irish food.
In Melbourne many pubs would offer specials. The pub that I like is called Bridie O’Reilly’s and its on Chapel st in South Yarra. Here they are lovely and vibrant. In the days before St Patrick’s day they would have their free beer days.
I have had their food and its equally delicious.
