With all the self-quarantines and event cancellations, your St. Patty’s Day traditions can get steamrolled. And with Dublin herself canceling the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and shutting down bars throughout Ireland, it seems like the holiday is canceled. Luckily, we have some tips for celebrating the luck of the Irish right at home.
Make an Irish Stew
If you have plenty of time today, which you probably do now that you’re at home, try making a traditional Irish Stew! (And if you have no time, consider the Instant Pot version!)
Capture a Leprechaun
Need something novel to keep the kids busy during quarantine season? Try capturing a Leprechaun with this special homemade rooftop garden. Guaranteed to keep them busy for (at least) a few hours!
Watch an Irish Film
There are many great options in the Irish Cinema! Here are some fan favorites across several genres:
- Horror: The Hole in the Ground (2019)
- Drama: Brooklyn (2015)
- Children’s: The Secret of Kells (2010)
- Romance: Leap Year (2010)
- Historical: Bloody Sunday (2002)
May the road rise up to meet you, and may the wind be always at your back!
