We’ve compiled a list of the best activities so you can spend Paddy’s weekend like any Irish person would: drunk!
The Irish triangle: Grapes, Dog and Partridge and Fagan’s // All weekend
No better place to kick off St Patrick’s weekend than a quick tour of Sheffield’s Irish triangle. Just behind West Street, drop by the Kennedy Room in the Grapes, catch the rugby at the Dog and top it off with pint of the black stuff in Fagan’s.
St. Patrick’s Weekend at Molly Malone’s Irish Tavern // All weekend
Where better to relish in the Irish holiday than in Sheffield’s newest Irish tavern? Once you’ve completed the above, Molly Malones ain’t a bad place to end the night especially with an authentic live Irish band on ‘til late. Get ready to belt out your favourite Irish songs and show off your best attempt at Irish dancing, keep those arms straight!
Cutlery Works St Patrick’s Weekender // March 14 – 17

St Patrick’s Day at Popworld // Popworld Sheffield // March 15, 16 & 17
To celebrate the weekend, Popworld is having a battle of the Irish bands. Watch the Boyzone fans square up to the U2 backers before everyone reunites for a bit of World Of Our Own.
