March has officially arrived in the Hoosier state. And even though the chilly breezes aren’t gone for good, it’s still a reason for celebrating. And Indianapolis can start preparing now for the biggest party in March in the Circle City–St. Patrick’s Day.
There are plenty of options for partying away the weekend before the official holiday, such as signing up for the Shamrock Run and Walk and playing spectator for the parade that goes along with it. As for the actual holiday, on March 17, you’ll find a plethora of Indianapolis restaurants in which to drink your green beer. But for the most authentic Irish experience, complete with plenty of hot food, hearty drink, and fun, head to O’Reilly’s Irish Bar and Restaurant.
Located in the heart of downtown Indianapolis, O’Reilly’s knows how to throw a party. They celebrate Irish culture and heritage all year long, so when March 17 rolls around, they’re more than prepared to host the best Ceiliúradh in Indy! This upbeat bar is just a block north of Conseco Fieldhouse and promises to be a great place for people-watching. Get there early to enjoy the 9 HDTVs and 7-foot big screen along with your drink of choice.
Speaking of drink, make sure you sample at least one of the traditional Irish brews available at O’Reilly’s. Strongbow Cider is a must on St. Patty’s Day, especially if you prefer a milder taste than the time-honored bitter flavor of Guinness. Harp is another perfect choice for toasting Ireland’s favorite holiday. And if you’re looking for something hot to pair with your beer tastings, check out O’Reilly’s diverse menu.
From bangers and mash (sausage and mashed red potatoes) to fish and chips and Guinness beef stew, there’s something for every palate at O’Reilly’s. And if you can’t quite stomach the traditional tastes of Ireland, don’t worry–there’s a wide array of American favorites available as well including burgers, wraps, and hot and cold salads.
In addition to the large variety of authentic food and drink that awaits your St. Patty’s Day visit to O’Reilly’s Irish Bar and Restaurant, there will be celebratory live Irish tunes for all of the Indianapolis music fans in attendance. There are some fun give-aways throughout the day as well, and even an annual mustache contest, so you definitely don’t want to miss out on this fun Indianapolis event. Popping in O’Reilly’s on March 17th is one of your best options of things to do in Indianapolis during the month of March!
