St. Patrick’s Day Activities for Adults

Grab a Guinness

Green beer isn’t the only sign of a good ol’ Irish time! Guinness is the official drink of St. Patrick’s Day. With its unique creamy flavor, you’ll be reminded of your Irish roots in no time. So grab a pint and indulge (responsibly) this holiday.

Host a Virtual Whiskey Tasting

2020 was the year of virtual gatherings and happy hours. Continue the trend by hosting your own virtual whiskey tasting. Find a boxed set that suits your fancy (we love Jameson), gather a couple of friends online, and let the good times roll. You can elevate the tasting experience by grading the whiskeys in order of preference or pairing your whiskeys with some classic St. Patrick’s Day food.

Search for Four-Leaf Clovers

Getting outside on St. Patrick’s Day isn’t only great for your health and well-being — it’s also the best way to step into the spring season. With so many parks in the greater Cincinnati area, there are plenty of green areas where you can enjoy a stroll and search for lucky four-leaf clovers. We love Washington Park, Eden Park, and Ault Park to name a few.

Shepherd's Pie St. Patrick's Day food

Shepherd’s Pie is a classic comfort food and no holiday is complete without Irish soda bread. When it comes to dessert, chocolate stout cupcakes are sure to be the ultimate crowd pleasers among family members of all ages.

Blend a Shamrock Shake

Everyone knows the Shamrock Shake from those famous Golden Arches, but this St. Patrick’s Day, why not blend your own? You’ll be able to control how much or how little ice cream, mint, and food coloring you add to your milkshake so that it’s personalized to your liking. This tasty treat makes a delicious dessert after your St. Patrick’s Day food, too.
