Having lived in Ireland I know St. Patrick's Day is a celebration of Irishness and Irish culture. What better way to celebrate it than at one of the Irish pubs in Helsinki? I will be celebrating St. Patrick's Day on March 17th at an Irish pub with Miss Mo.
Here are links to some Irish pubs in Helsinki. I am pretty sure most Irish pubs will have organised something on St. Patrick's Day. You can at least spend a nice family day with lots of activities for kids at Molly Malone's on Kaisaniemenkatu between 14:30 and 17:00. For more information go here.
