The Irish really know how to celebrate, so when it comes to St Patrick’s Day we expect no less. A day that celebrates the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day always falls on March 17. Guinness, green and a good bit of ‘Irish Craic’ are all to be expected to mark the occasions. For those keen to join in on the fun, here is the best place to celebrate in Belize City.
Where to celebrate in Belize City
This year city-hotel, Best Western Plus Belize Biltmore Plaza, is pulling out all the stops to celebrate the luck of the Irish. On the 17 March, The Biltmore Bistro is hosting an Irish-themed happy hour from 5pm to 10pm. On the drinks menu are Guinness buckets and Irish Margaritas. To complement the drinks, there will also be a delicious food menu. Pizza rolls, chicken beer dip, nachos supreme, fish panades and salbutes all feature.
Drink and dine in the al fresco garden setting under parasol-shaded tables or on the lovely covered patio. Too, the poolside bar will also be open.
And if you’ve had one too many of the Guinness, then the Biltmore Bistro is where you want to find yourself in the morning. Hangover worthy cures like French toast and pancakes are available. Of course, Belizean classics like fry jacks also feature. What better way to cure the headache the next day?
When is St Patrick’s Day?
St. Patrick’s Day is always March 17. This year it falls on a Wednesday – half way through the week so even more reason to celebrate.
What is St Patrick’s Day?
St. Patrick is one of the patron saints of Ireland. Hence, the date marks and honours his death. The saint travelled to Ireland in the fifth century to convince Irish pagans of Christianity. And how about those green shamrocks you associate with Ireland? That’s down to him too: the story goes that St Patrick used the three-leaved clover to describe the Holy Trinity to non-believers. Interestingly, legend also says he banished snakes from the country by chasing them into the sea. We’ll take that one with a pinch of salt (and sip of Guinness).
