What is Saint Patrick’s Day?

Saint Patrick’s Day 2023 – Paddies Day in Nerja
The look on the face of Saint Patrick – It’s as if he knows what to expect.

St. Patrick’s Day is the feast day (March 17) of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Born in Roman Britain in the late 4th century, he was kidnapped at the age of 16 and taken to Ireland as a slave. He escaped but returned about 432 CE to convert the Irish to Christianity. By the time of his death on March 17, 461, he had established monasteries, churches, and schools.

Many legends grew up around him—for example, that he drove the snakes out of Ireland and used the shamrock to explain the Trinity. Ireland came to celebrate his day with religious services and feasts. Check out more about Ireland’s favourite sain from Britannica.

As an ex-Irish Guardsman, you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be as enthusiastic as anyone when it comes to having a little celebration.

Just like everywhere else in the world, you can find yourself in the company of Irish folk in Nerja. Cochrans, Irish Annies, The Harp, and Buskers Bar to name just a few will be bouncing with people celebrating Saint Patrick’s weekend (Yes! Some people make a weekend out of it; why not?)

Staying in Nerja for Saint Paddies Day

The best way to enjoy the weekend would be to rent a villa, apartment or townhouse. Having a base to explore, not just Nerja but, the rest of the Costa del Sol gives you freedom from hotel and resort itineraries. But, make sure that you book now as the Paddies Day festivities can attract a lot of people.

Check out the Nerja Beach Holidays website and see what is available. If you need help, we are always ready and willing to sort a villa or apartment that will suit your needs.

Come and stay with us and help to celebrate this most wonderful of Irish Holidays.
