With Paddy’s Day falling on a Saturday and the vast majority of us getting three days off — that can only mean one thing… extending the sesh.
Throw in the rugby against England, the need to eat some great food and what is probably a raging hangover and you’ll need to rock up to one of the spots on this list.
Grab a friend, wash that green off your face and get ready to keep her lit for a second day.
