St. Patrick's Day 2023

The authentically European way of celebrating St. Patrick's Day

INBA St. Patrick's Day dinner (March 16, 2023)

The Ireland Netherlands Business Association (INBA), an organization that connects Irish and Dutch people in the Netherlands, is throwing a festive dinner at Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam hotel on St. Patrick's Day. The event is primarily for business professionals, but everybody willing to celebrate Irish culture is welcome to join the crowd. The event is from 7 pm to 11 pm, and the tickets are €97.50. They include drinks, a three-course meal, and entrance to a live music concert.


Splendor is a club for all sorts of music, and it always hosts extraordinary events on St. Patrick's Day. With 50 musicians and a 1000 loyal members, this place is a great spot to celebrate "the green day." There's also a bar, a music laboratory, and of course—a concert hall. Be sure to track their Facebook page to stay tuned about any Paddy-inspired events.

Pub crawling

Amsterdam might be the top city in Europe for pub crawling as all the pubs are within walking distance, making it a perfect way of celebrating St. Patrick's Day. So go to various Irish places in an attempt to enjoy a glass or two of delicious Guinness, find the greenest Paddy's day shindig, and maybe even spot a couple of leprechauns.
