How to have a Sweet St. Patrick’s Day in La Jolla

Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhuit! Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you! There’s many ways to celebrate the Green Isle in La Jolla this St. Patrick’s Day. Here are our favorite ways to pay homage to island that brought us Guinness.

1. Picnic on the green.

There are many beautiful parks and small lookout points in La Jolla perfect for picnicking. In the evening, whether after work or school, enjoy the green like so much of Ireland does everyday by laying a blanket on the green grass. Pick the a local one of your choice from our Parks Page.

2. Hit the local Irish pub.

You can enjoy a good ole American sports bar or French wine bar any night. Grab a pint of Guinness or cider over at Hennessey’s on Herschel.

3. Take pubs to the next level.

Head slightly south to San Diego to join in on San Diego Saint Patrick’s Day’s Official Pub Crawl! Join others decked out in flags, shamrocks, green and more for a night of green drinks and leprechaun-level fun. Check out how to purchase tickets and more details at: California Nightlife – SD St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl.

4. Listen to live music!

Want to adventure out for a drink without heading down south? If you’re farther north, we recommend O’Sullivans Irish Pub in Carlsbad. With a roughened wood interior, fireplaces, live music most nights and traditional bar games, it makes for an authentic, old Irish atmosphere.

5. The most important, must-do thing of all…

You must wear green. Or leprechauns will find you…and pinch you! (And if they don’t…friends or fellow pub visitors probably will!)
