Saint Patrick´s Day in Barcelona

BCN Apartment Rentals offers you the most unique experience in the best luxury apartments in Barcelona.

On March 17th the world celebrated the Saint Patrick’s Day, the day of the Saint Patron of the Irish and many descendants of Irish families (an estimated 60 million) around the world. This day the streets are getting green and there are many parades, not only in Ireland, but also in many other countries, such as the United States, where it has great relevance among its popular festivals, due to a large influx of Irish immigrants who arrived in the United States decades ago.

In Barcelona the Saint Patrick´s Day has also been celebrated for years. Most Irish pubs organize various competitions and activities. The Hard Rock Cafe, for example, hosted Irish dances and Dj’s and prepared a special menu that you can try all week. Another Celtic party was held at Espai Jove La Fontana, with a concert of the dance company Delorgan, the medieval group Trobar de Morte and the harpist Josep-Maria Ribelles. There was also an outdoor party at Diagonal with Numancia street, where you could find all kinds of activities: from Pub Quiz in pure Irish style to raffles where you could win English language courses in Dublin or trips to Ireland and Costa Brava.

Although the official Saint Patrick’s Day is Friday, this year’s party was held on Saturday, March 18th. Check out the programme!
