Hello! My girlfriend and I were thinking of heading somewhere for a St. Patty's weekend of fun, festivities, and a little bit of debauchery. We've celebrated it here in New York the past couple of years, so we're just looking for a change. We're not really interested in typical family-oriented events.

We don't really feel like going through the hassle and time constraints of flying, so where would you suggest going to that would be within a 4 or 5 hour car/bus/train ride from NYC? Also, what are some events, bars, restaurants, etc., that you would suggest going to while there?

Boston and Philly (Could always do the Erin express, know it was last weekend but think this weekend too) both have a lot.

Also look to Savannah GA (though is longer than th 5 hour drive or would require a flight) - awesome for St Pattys daya and little different than the big cities but still very adult so to speak

Bridgewater CT and Ocean City NJ. I understand that there are also ten dry towns in Massachusetts which would be nice when people suddenly decide that drunkenness is a virtue..

Erin Express 12pm Blarney Stone - YouTube


Erin Express 2011 - Drinker's West - YouTube


Erin Express 2011 - YouTube

not sure if it would be your thing but seems to get larger every year with more and more bars included, pretty sure the St Pattys Parade was last weekend actually though

It's home to the largest St. Pat's Day celebration in the nation.

Honestly, probably any large city in the Northeast will have a good St patty's day celebration. The three largest parades for the holiday are in the northeast (New York, Boston, and Pittsburgh)
