A Wee Guide to St. Patrick's Day on the Cape & Islands

View as Map

While some of us have internal homing devices to direct us toward the nearest Guinness filling station, we realize that others might require the use of a map. Thus, to help you celebrate the most sacred of all pub days, we put together this handy guide to St. Patrick's Day food and drink on the Cape and Islands. This year, the holiday falls on a Sunday and since everybody's Irish on St. Patrick's Day, you can expect a full weekend of celebration at any and all bars, pubs, taverns, and liquor store parking lots. Here are ten establishments where you're guaranteed shenanigans and shamrocks. Erin Go Bragh!
