How to Have a Memorable St. Paddy’s Day

March 13, 2021

St. Patrick’s Day is usually an opportunity to spend a weekend bar hopping, getting in touch with old friends and new over beers and some great Irish food. Because of the current health crisis, however, many of those traditions have to look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still get in the spirit of the holiday, all right near your Chestnut Square apartment.

West Chester is home to tons of authentic Irish pubs, many of which are open this St. Patty’s Day for limited indoor dining and drinking, outdoor socializing and takeout. No matter your comfort level, you can find a way to embrace your Irish roots (or those you wish you had!) with some quality cuisine and brews. For instance, The Stone Tavern is one of the most well-known authentic Irish spots in the region—and it’s just five minutes from your Chestnut Square apartment.

If you’re after genuine Irish fare, The Stone Tavern should be on your St. Patty’s list, as it’s the winner of the Best Authentic Irish Pub from Main Line Today. The longtime local favorite offers indoor seating as well as a heated outdoor deck and is also available for takeout—so you can head out on the town for the holiday or recreate the fun right at your Chestnut Square apartment. Irish staples are common throughout the menu, such as the Irish Italian burger, corned beef brisket and fish and chips. If you’re celebrating with a few, check out the family-style to-go options, which include options like shepherds pie or bangers and mash, prepared for four people. Round out your meal with Irish coffee, Guinness or one of the tavern’s seasonal craft cocktails. The Stone Tavern also offers nearly three-dozen beers in six-packs and growlers to go for those celebrating at home.

So this St. Patty’s Day, even if you’re hunkered down, you can embrace the luck of the Irish with an authentic local favorite like The Stone Tavern.
