Celebrate St. Paddy’s Day Without the Stress

St. Patrick’s Day is one of the biggest party days of the year! No matter if you’re Irish or not, anyone can find excitement in dressing head to toe in green and raising a glass with old friends and new. However, such a popular occasion can mean getting out and about can be a hassle—with packed bars and long lines. If you’re looking for a St. Paddy’s outing without all the headaches, consider traveling a bit off the beaten path of Main Street to East Falls, where you’ll find an authentic Irish pub that’s perfect for celebrating stress-free—yet still just minutes away from your The Isle apartment!

      Known for its iconic green door (and a lot else!), Billy Murphy’s Irish Saloon provides a friendly environment and casual environment, great for conversation. Main Street in Manayunk is one of the hottest spots in the city for St. Patty’s Day celebrations, with its ample bars and restaurants all within walking distance. But if you’re looking for a St. Patty’s experience that is a little more lowkey and laidback, Billy Murphy’s is a great option.

      The spot is a longtime favorite of locals, in business for more than 35 years. The restaurant and bar offer a corner pub feel but feature impressive menus that will have you feeling like you’re right in the middle of Main Street’s culinary scene. The food selection is a good mix of Irish and American influences. Embrace St. Patty’s with the fish and chips or opt for the turf burger, one of Billy Murphy’s most popular (and award-winning) dishes: a mouthwatering combo of bacon, peppers, onions, homemade chipotle aioli sauce and smothered in cheese. Billy Murphy’s features a good selection of craft beers and a rotating draft—that of course includes Guinness!

      Lots of venues try to hop on the St. Patty’s bandwagon but, at Billy Murphy’s, partiers can enjoy quality and authentic Irish food and drink without all the noise and crowds—all just minutes from your The Isle apartment.
