St. Patrick's Day away from the Emerald Isle is hard for any Irish lover. Luckily, in Kissimmee we have many opportunities for you to enjoy some Irish libations with a side of fish and chips to honour this raucous Saint's day.
Finnegan's Bar & Grill
In case the name didn't give it away, Finnegan's emerald exterior on the 'New York Streets' of Universal Studios will let you know right away that you're in the right place for St. Paddy's Day. Have an Irish beer or one of their green cocktails and they'll have you saying 'bottoms up!'. After a few rounds here you'll feel like you're old pals with Irish poet Seamus Heaney.
Address: 1000 Universal Blvd, Orlando, FL 32819
Get your double dose of Dublin at Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant or Cookes of Dublin next door for counter-service, fast Irish fare. We recommend you try the 'Hog In A Box' at Cookes. At Raglan Road, sit down for a meal and get your fill of fish and chips and meat pies to hold down those cold pints and try to keep from dancing to the live music accompanied by award-winning Irish dancers.
Try the Iced Irish: Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, butterscotch schnapps, Baileys Salted Caramel, and iced coffee topped with whipped cream. St. Patrick, take me now! This place is busy so make a reservation ahead of time to ensure you get a piece of the dancing action! With a little liquid courage, you might find yourself dancing too.
Address: Marketplace, Disney Springs, 1640 Buena Vista Dr, Orlando, FL 32830
Mulligans Irish Pub
It's right in the name, folks. This classic hometown bar in Celebration will have you feeling like a local. Try the Irish stew made with Guinness beer, or the classic English sausage rolls for an authentic experience. The baked Brie with fresh apple slices and French bread will give you energy for a night full of St. Paddy's shenanigans.
Address: 39 Blake Blvd, Kissimmee, FL 34747
Celebration Town Tavern
How could you not have a good time making merry on St. Paddy's day in a place which has the very name of 'Celebration'? This family who owns this tavern are originally from Boston, and cater to many favorites of the Irish diaspora, including lobster rolls, meatloaf stackers and Fish-n-Chips. Over 1,500 positive reviews on Facebook can't be wrong! Its cozy atmosphere will have even the most reticent Irishman pining for the Emerald Isle.
The easily walkable town of Celebration also provides lots of options for entertainment after you've left the pub. The tavern overlooks the community's beautiful downtown area lake lined with walking paths and cypress trees.
Address: 721 Front St, Celebration, FL 34747
