St Patricks Day in Barcelona
Ladies and Gentleman it’s that time of year again when the world goes green to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day. If anyone knows how to party it’s the Irish, and this is one festival of the year you cannot miss. However, did you know that this holiday, which is now associated with drinking, parties, parades, pubs and other shenanigans, was once a DRY holiday? Unbelievable right? Well from 1903-1970 Saint Patrick’s day was declared a religious observance holiday and all pubs across the country were closed for business; meaning no beer, no wine, and no spirits for the public. Thankfully, that law was overturned in 1970 and the taps and bottles have been free flowing on St. Paddy’s day ever since!
This St. Paddy’s day at Flaherty’s Irish Bar Barcelona there will be a lot of dancing and singing as well as sports, Irish grub, and pints and pints and pints of Guinness. We want you to embrace the spirit of the Emerald Isle and join us at Flaherty’s Irish Bar Barcelona for the festivities. So tune into your inner leprechaun and let’s get this party started!
Pre-Paddy’s Day Party
To get a weekend jumpstart on St. Paddy´s Day we are going to have a pre-party on Saturday the 14th so that none of you have to miss out. The theme is green of course, whether it be a shirt, socks, panties, hat, or mittens, and we want to see everyone with a pint of Guinness or Irish Whisky in hand. Plus, we will have face painting artist experts at drawing Irish flags, beer bottles, and shamrocks who can get you dolled up for the party. There will be live music starting at 7pm and rocking on into the night. If you are hankering for a bit of hearty food, we have traditional Irish stew to fill your grumbling tummy, so you can then get right down to drinking. We will also be showing the Rugby RBS games Wales v Ireland at 15:30 and England v Scotland at 18:00. So look no further, we have it all for you here at Flaherty’s Irish Bar Barcelona promising you fantastic craic, and a night to remember.
