With three-quarters of Liverpool's population having Irish roots, the city is fairly named the second capital of Ireland. No wonder it goes green on St. Patrick's Day weekend. Varied events and activities are planned throughout the Baltic Triangle area and beyond.
St. Patrick's Day Parade
The parade is traditionally the highlight of Liverpool's celebration, drawing large crowds out onto the streets. The marching units gather at the old Liverpool Irish Centre, Mount Pleasant, at 2 pm and step off at 3 pm to classy Celtic music. The parade's endpoint is set at O'Neill's Irish Bar (Oneills Liverpool) on Hanover Street.
The Baltic Triangle bars
You can continue your merrymaking right at O'Neill's with showers of Guinness. Make sure to ckeck out Liverpool's first Irish bar—Flanagan's Apple in Mathew Street. Then move a bit south and explore other Irish bars within the Baltic Triangle. The neighborhood boasts plenty of places to raise a pint of the iconic black stuff to St. Patrick. Consider such hearty spots as the Baltic Market, Punch Tarmey's Liverpool, or Camp and Furnace, full of Irish craic.
