For many, St. Patrick’s Day is a great opportunity to let loose and partake in some raucous celebrations. However, there’s far more to this holiday than simply dressing in green or enjoying a cold stout. It is also a time to appreciate authentic Irish culture by enjoying some traditional cuisine, fantastic music, and so much more.
Near Ardmore, PA, there are plenty of exciting festivities to enjoy this St. Patrick’s Day. At Montgomeryville Nissan, we want to share with you three of our favorites.
The Druids & Gelway Guild
This year, celebrate the holiday a few nights early on Tuesday, March 14th with a genuine Irish concert at The Ardmore Music Hall. This 21+ event begins with The Druids, an award-winning band hailing all the way from County Kildare Ireland.
Afterwards, Philadelphia’s own Gelway Guild will take the stage. The Guild, who take their name from the inspirational Gelway City in Ireland, are a Celtic rock band blending the modern and traditional.
For ticketing information, you can visit The Ardmore Music Hall’s website or RSVP to the event on Facebook.
When a bar has been around as long as McCloskey’s, you know it’s got to be something special. Indeed, the tavern has been serving up authentic Irish pub food with American flair since 1934. Some of their most well-known dishes include the belly-busting Thanksgiving sandwich and homemade shepherd’s pie.
In recent years, the tavern has also received recognition from the Philly Beer Scene for their excellent selection of rotating craft brews. When you need a laid-back, homey atmosphere to wet your whistle in, McCloskey’s is the place to go.
Great Narberth Leprechaun Hunt
When we think St. Patrick’s Day, we’re usually thinking only of 21+ activities, but this holiday should be fun for the kids, too. At the Narberth Business Association’s Great Narberth Leprechaun Hunt, the whole family can get together and celebrate with a massive scavenger hunt.
Families will start with a series of clues as well as a pot of gold. You’ll then travel from storefront to storefront, hunting for the ten leprechauns hidden around town. For every leprechaun found, kids will receive a prize as well as plenty of “gold” coins along the way.
