Show your Shamrock Spirit while Staying at our Hotel near the St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Our central NYC location places you just steps from all of the action
Go green this spring with a trip to New York City for the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade on Friday, March 17, 2017. As the largest St. Pat’s parade in the U.S., this epic gathering of green galore proves that you don’t have to be of Irish descent to party and have fun. In fact, many of the attendees are not. But lavish festival costumes, dancers, bagpipers and gallons of green beer are enough to encourage anyone to be Irish for the day.
Spectators decked out in their finest green gear can get a great view of the parade along Fifth Avenue between 44th and 79th streets beginning at 11 a.m., but showing up early to stake out a spot is recommended. Following the arrival of the parade’s grand marshal – Michael Dowling this year – parade goers can continue the celebrations at nearby Irish pubs such as Paddy Reilly’s, McSorley’s Old Ale House and Scratcher, known for over-the-top décor, Irish rock and, of course, Guinness on tap.
