  • Best Places to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Newport Beach

Now that’s one headline we’re excited to see! St. Patrick’s Day is Tuesday, March 17th and plenty of Newport Beach bars and pubs will be celebrating the warmth of our fun-loving community. Whether it be a tall glass of Guinness, a shot of Irish Whiskey or a plate of corned beef, follow the rainbow to find your St. Patrick’s Day pot of gold at one of these local watering holes.

Muldoon’s Irish Pub

Muldoon’s Irish Pub will be making St. Patrick’s Day a two-day event! Normally closed on Mondays, they are making an exception this year to start the party early. They will offer their normal menu starting at 11:30am on Monday, but on Tuesday, there will be live music all day, special Irish cuisine and Guinness on tap at their two bars.

Malarky’s Irish Pub

Not to be beat, Malarkey’s Irish Pub will open before the sun rises at 6am on St. Patrick’s Day. The longest running St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Orange County for over 40 years, start your day with an Irish coffee and corned beef hash. Keep the whiskey flowing until 2am, but remember to arrange a safe ride home!

Shamrock Bar & Grill

Shamrock Bar & Grill’s owners Frank and Christina Duggan both hail from Tipperary, Ireland, so you know you are getting the real deal when dining at this local joint. With live music starting at 1pm and Irish cuisine served the traditional way all day, make sure to try the Shamrock Steak or Shepherd’s Pie.


English-style gastropub, SideDoor is the perfect cozy location for a low-key St. Patrick’s Day date night. They’ll be serving green beer and fresh, locally sourced takes on Irish cuisine. Coincidentally, SideDoor will be celebrating their tenth anniversary all month long and is partnering with local charities to donate a portion of their proceeds. Order the Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey flight and be sure to mention CHOC – 10% will go back to charity!

Stag Bar + Kitchen

Irish whiskey in one hand, a glass of Guinness in the other – that’s what Stag Bar calls “Dublin fistin’”! Doors open at 8am for guests to enjoy green beer all day. Boasting over 75 premium and small-batch whiskey, scotch, bourbon, rye, and moonshine, seize the opportunity to find your favorite!
