We may not be able to celebrate in our favourite Irish pubs or watch a festive St. Patrick’s Day street parade, but there is still treasure to be found at the end of the rainbow! It is time to put on our leprechaun hats and get creative with our green-themed ideas this year. There are plenty of songs to sing, dances to dance and green suspenders to be worn! Make the most of your St. Paddy’s Day at home with our guide to celebrating the jolly holiday at home.

Have A Drink

Or try out our delicious cold-pressed St. Patty’s Day cocktail recipe! Listen to the best Irish jigs, it will be hard not to get up and click your heels alongside the fiddles and bagpipes!
Dress Like The Irish
It’s time to break out your best green attire and shamrock accessories! Embrace the colourful tradition and get creative this year by trying out a green and gold makeup look. Add a matching Ireland-inspired lip for the perfect ‘Kiss Me I’m Irish‘ touch.
Eat Like The Irish
Irish cuisine might not be everyone’s cup of tea but you can definitely channel the local cuisine today. Listen to Celtic tunes while trying out traditional recipes such as an Irish stew infused with Guinness, soda bread, ‘Boxty’ potato dumplings and smoked salmon. Don’t forget the festive decorations!
Send St. Patrick’s Day Cards
Since we won’t be celebrating with all of our friends and family this St. Paddy’s Day, why not send them a card to let them know they’re partying with us in spirit! Make it a fun at-home activity by cutting out shamrocks, drawing a leprechaun and throwing in some gold confetti. Use a fun craft to stay connected this year.
For a fun and delicious at-home activity, get out your green apron and bake a fresh batch of cookies! Test out your decorating skills with green icing, shamrock sprinkles and edible gold glitter. Make it a decorating contest with the whole family!
Listen To Irish-Born Artists
Ireland has produced many talented singers, musicians and bands, some of which you may not have even known were Irish! Be sure to add The Cranberries, Van Morrison, Hozier, Niall Horan, Sinead O’Connor, U2 and The Dubliners to your St. Patty’s playlist this year. Create the ultimate Irish dance party with these artists and more.
Watch an Irish Film
Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Irish accent by watching a popular Irish film. Check out ‘Brooklyn’ starring Saoirse Ronan as an Irish immigrant in America in the 1950s, or the delightful 80s-inspired ‘Sing Street’ about a modern Irish love story. It’s the perfect way to wind down your St. Paddy’s Day celebration at home.
