St. Patrick’s Day Close to London


While there are massive St. Patrick’s Day celebrations at Niagara Falls, London is home to a bevy of authentic Irish pubs so you can celebrate locally. Check out Fionn MacCool’s for great cocktails at 867 Wellington Rd. Their traditional pub menu includes Rover Bites with stuffed buttermilk mashed potatoes, jalapeños and cheese. The Blarney Chips are big waffle fries smothered in ale sauce. It’s a popular option for local revelers.

There’s also Molly Bloom’s Irish Pub and Restaurant at 700 Richmond St. The local chain goes all out for St. Paddy’s day with potato shells dressed in sour cream, fried pickles and piled-high nachos. Of course, if you’re craving something really local, you can always opt for the French-Canadian poutine with a side of Guinness.

Green Day

You’ll find McCabe’s Irish Pub and Grill at 739 Richmond St. Menu favorites include shepherd’s pie, steak and Guinness pie, fish and chips, and a variety of poutine options that can help energize you after one too many Irish car bombs.

Try The Waltzing Weasel Pub at 1324 Adelaide St. North for a classic British themed experience. On the Pub Favorites menu you’ll find steak and kidney pie, fish and chips, a jumbo stuffed toad in a Yorkshire pie and a selection of special St. Patrick’s Day items.
