How to Have a Memorable St. Paddy’s Day in Exton

St. Patrick’s Day is usually an opportunity to spend a weekend bar hopping, getting in touch with old friends and new over beers and some great Irish food. Because of the current health crisis, however, many of those traditions have to look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still get in the spirit of the holiday, all right near your Ashbridge Exton apartment.

Nearby West Chester is home to tons of authentic Irish pubs, many of which are open this St. Patty’s Day for limited indoor dining and drinking, outdoor socializing and takeout. No matter your comfort level, you can find a way to embrace your Irish roots (or those you wish you had!) with some quality cuisine and brews. For instance, Kildare’s West Chester is considered the go-to spot for a St. Patty’s Day celebration in Chester County—with Irish influences throughout its menu and the restaurant and bar itself. You can make a reservation for indoor or outdoor dining and can also carry out to recreate the holiday right at your Ashbridge Exton apartment.

When it comes to the food, mark the holiday with offerings like Irish craic nachos, the Rueben spring roll, the goat cheese toastie or the deviled eggs. No meal at Kildare’s is complete without an order of its famous wings, which come with a variety of sauces, including chili de arbol habanero and whiskey barbecue. The drink menu is just as diverse, featuring 50 bottles and cans, as well as a dozen beers on tap, many brewed right here in our area.
