A Smoky Mountain Saint Patrick’s Day

four leaf clovers

This month, indulge your inner leprechaun with fun, family-friendly events in celebration of Saint Patty’s Day. First, treat the family to a meal at a genuine British pub. Located in downtown Gatlinburg, The Fox and Parrot Tavern has become a Saint Patrick’s Day tradition with both locals and visitors, serving authentic dishes such as Bubble and Squeak, Guinness Stew, and Mulligan Stew. There are pints of Harp, Guinness, Killian’s and Smithwick’s to wash it all down, along with 25 additional selections on draft. No need to worry about rowdiness – the pub is family-friendly and smoke-free.

Or, have lunch or dinner on an enclosed deck overlooking the mountains at the Smoky Mountain Brewery. They offer authentic Irish food along with a variety of Irish imports on tap. Lastly, don’t leave without a trip to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park for a four-leaf clover hunt. These clovers usually have three leaves, but the rare ones found with four leaves were, and still are, considered symbols of good luck, and were even used as a charm against evil spirits by the early Celts. Happy hunting!
