Recommended March Attractions
Vegas offers plenty for those who aren’t necessarily fans of basketball.
St. Patrick’s Day 2023
Las Vegas loves a good party, and St. Patrick's Day is a good excuse for a pub crawl up and down the Strip or throughout Downtown. However, due to the ongoing pandemic and the fact that the Irish holiday falls on a Thursday this year, don't be surprised to see a celebration that's a little less rowdy than usual.
Best Irish Bar for St. Patrick’s Day Fun
For those looking for a memorable Vegas experience, we recommend heading to O’Sheas at The LINQ. Between live music, gaming tables, cornhole, and beer pong, you’ll never get bored.
Best Bar to See an Irish Band
Nine Fine Irishmen at the New York New York is the Strip’s most accessible, most lively Irish pub. Even on non-Irish holidays, the place features live music, dancing, and a nice lineup of authentic Irish grub.
Best Place for a Perfect Pint of Guinness
Ri Ra Irish Pub provides a unique and authentic Irish experience inside the Shoppes at Mandalay Place. The bartenders have mastered the "perfect pour" of Guinness stout, which you can master yourself next door at one of the few officially-licensed Guinness retail shops in the world.
