Best Restaurants and Pubs to Celebrate St Patrick’s Day around Orlando
Fiddler’s Green Irish Pub and Restaurant
Fiddler’s Green Irish Pub and Restaurant in Winter Park is Orlando’s best traditional Irish restaurant and has a smaller cozier-feel to it. Live Irish music can be heard here throughout the entire year including around St Patrick’s Day and has been featured on the Food Networks “The Best Of”. On St Patrick’s Day, Fiddler’s Green will also feature Step Dancers and Bag Pipers. Dinner Menu Items include Corned Beef and Cabbage, Hen in a Pot, Blackberry and Apple Crumble, or Barbeque Guinness Wings. Fiddler’s Green is also a participant in the Winter Park St Patrick’s Day Parade that is held earlier in the month (see picture above).
While you are in Winter Park, check out Orlando’s best art festival throughout the year in the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival taking place March 20th-22nd, 2015.
Claddagh Cottage Irish Pub
Tucked in a small strip-plaza in the quiet suburb of Conway in Orlando is Claddagh Cottage Irish Pub. If you are not paying attention you will drive right by it. Claddagh is mostly all bar but has great meal items as well. Some of the recommendations include Chicken and Mushroom Pie, the Cottage Pie, the Steak and Mushroom Pie, or the Dubliner.
