Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in a sun-filled, fun-filled destination that will make your friends and family green with envy. This year, March 17th falls on a Sunday, so you have all weekend to dance a few jigs, sing a few tunes, and toast Ireland with a pint or two of green beer and a loud “sláinte!” So, don your best green get-up and may the road rise up to meet you as you check out these exciting St. Patrick’s Day activities.

Raglan Road™ Irish Pub and Restaurant – Disney Springs®

From the 130-year-old bar top imported from Dublin, to the acclaimed Irish chef in the kitchen, Raglan Road brings the life and soul of Ireland to the warmth of Kissimmee. It’s also the place to be at Disney Springs during St. Patrick’s Day, with a Mighty Irish Festival that runs March 15-17, 2019. This popular festival is sure to get your toes tapping with traditional food (try the Emerald Isle-style Fish & Chips), spirited dancers, and performances by The Young Dubliners, The Byrne Brothers, Reel Republic, and more. Add in an impressively huge menu of craft beer and cocktails, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for fun. This place fills up fast, so we suggest calling ahead to reserve a table.

Finnegan’s Bar & Grill™ – Universal Orlando Resort™

With a name like Finnegan’s Bar & Grill, you know you’re in for a treat. Located on the New York streets of Universal Studios Florida, the emerald exterior of this establishment catches the eye and sets the tone. Inside, they’re serving up some seriously good food in a lively atmosphere. Fuel up for a memorable St. Patrick’s Day with an authentic meal (we love the Guinness Beef Stew), or settle in with a drink in hand and join a raucous sing-along of traditional pub songs like “Whiskey in the Jar” and “The Irish Rover.” At Finnegan’s Bar & Grill, the pints flow like the River Shannon and the craic (Gaelic for “good times”) are the best around.

Pat O’Brien’s® – Universal CityWalk™

The name and green accents outside Pat O’Brien’s scream Ireland, but inside it’s pure New Orleans. That’s fine with us—after all, everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. This recreation of a legendary Bourbon Street bar knows how to celebrate the right way—live tunes, cold drinks, and a few good shenanigans in the name of the “Land of Saints and Scholars.

Capone’s Dinner & Show – Kissimmee

Join the gang at Capone’s Dinner & Show on March 17 for the Shamrock Special—an unforgettable evening complete with a buffet meal, select drink specials, and a cabaret-style stage show. There’s no four-leaf clover required to join in on the St. Patrick’s Day fun at Capone’s—just use this special coupon and you’re in. Talk about luck of the Irish!

From all of us in Kissimmee, we wish you a happy St. Patrick's Day. Keep us in the loop on Instagram with #MyKissimmee and show us your best green garb. For tips on getting around responsibly, visit our getting around page for transport options.

Oh, and if you’re joining us in Kissimmee for St. Patrick’s Day, remember what they say in Ireland: “Two people shorten the road.” So, be sure to bring a friend.
