Saint Patrick’s Day, although having religious origins, is a day known around the world for enjoying beer (sometimes green beer) and wearing green clothes. You can find St. Paddy’s parties at expat bars all across Seoul and other cities in Korea. And we can’t forget the annual Irish Association of Korea’s Saint Patrick’s Day Festival! So grab that green shirt you wear once a year, and dust off your leprechaun hat, and get your liver ready for a day of drinking, Irish style!
Saint Patrick’s Day Parties in Seoul, Pyeongtaek and Busan
This Irish Association of Korea organizes a huge Saint Patrick’s Day event every year. This years festival will take place at the D-Cube Plaza in Sindorim on March 16th from 1pm to 6pm. It’s a free festival where you can enjoy Irish music, dance performances and activities! There will also be opportunities to win prizes, such as 2 tickets to Ireland with Etihad Airways. For more information about the event, check out our 10 Directory Event listing.
The Saint Patrick’s Day Festival was just the warm-up to the real partying! The Irish Association of Korea is also hosting a “hooley” at Club FF and Gogo’s 1 (located in the same building) in Hongdae, just after the festival ends. Listen to traditional and contemporary Irish bands until 1am. Admission is only 10,000 won, so if you can’t make it to the festival, we definitely recommend attending the after-party!
The “biggest” Saint Patrick’s Party will be held at the 3 Wolfhound Pub locations in Korea. There will be drink specials (including green beer!), Irish music, rugby games on TV and no cover charge all across their locations. If you want a proper St. Paddy’s pub drinking experience, find your local Wolfhound!
