8 best pubs in Manchester: bars near me to visit on St Patrick’s Day - from The Lost Dene to Salt Dog Slims

St Patrick’s Day is here, here are the best places to celebrate in Manchester.

It’s safe to say that the last two years, celebrations such as St Patrick’s Day have been either subdued, or just cancelled.

Here are the best places in Manchester to celebrate St Patrick’s Day 2022.

The Lost Dene

To celebrate the occasion, the Lost Dene is slightly altering their drinks menu.

Most pubs are doing the standard Guinness-fest, but the Lost Dene are doing something a bit niche, and are offering a Jameson, ginger and lime drink this week.

As well as that, you can also get a bargain of four shots of baby Guinness for just £4.

O’Neill’s Printworks

One of the top Irish bars in Manchester, there are few, if any, better places to celebrate the day.

They’re urging customers to grab their green hat, and t-shirts and head on down.

You can try their new ‘St Pat’s Pot of Gold Bomb’ or just stick with a classic Guinness.

All of this is accompanied by great food, live music and of course the Six Nations rugby, as well as a great party atmosphere.

O’Shea’s is a long-standing Irish pub in Manchester, and has been serving the finest pint of Guinness outside of Ireland, or so some claim, for more than 20 years.

They have recently had a re-opening and have undergone a refurbishment inside, just in time for St Patrick’s Day celebrations.

With great food available, and the screening of the Six Nations rugby, O’Shea’s is a great place to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.

Another authentic Irish pub, Mulligans says they are “The home of great Guinness, good craic, live music and sport”.

A clip uploaded to their website gives you a snippet of what to expect from St Patrick’s Day, and was taken back in 2019.

It shows great live music, with people drinking and partying, just generally having a good time.

This is also Manchester’s oldest Irish pub, so they must be doing something right.
