St Patrick's Day Melbourne has all the hallmarks of a super fun Big Day. Melbourne has many a fine Irish establishment with some twenty or more Irish hotels in Melbourne city alone. Add to that the many venues that put on St Patrick's Day themed events and Melbourne goes very green every 17th of March! We scoured the cobbled streets to find some of the Paddy's Day events to be part of including fine dining, restaurants and parties.
So make sure you get some green clothing on, look for some clover, and maybe wear a sparkly tinsel green hat on your head. Now get out and about this Paddy's day. Melbourne venues will go green even if they just serve Green beer! But we are sure you will have fun with spuds and Guinness all over town this St Pats Day! Enjoy being green on St Patrick's Day Melbourne.
