Have a Guinness at Brian Boru on St. Patrick’s Day

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
St. Patrick's Day in Portland


If you’re going to have a pint of Guinness on St. Patrick’s Day, you might as well do it at Brian Boru in downtown Portland. The party starts at the crack of dawn with a traditional Irish breakfast and goes until the wee hours. They’ll be plenty of live music, probably some bagpipes, and the Guinness will be flowing like a river. We’ll be honest, the place is an absolute madhouse on March 17, but isn’t that half the fun? Erin go bragh!
