St Patrick’s Day is a great occasion to celebrate!

For this reason, we are pleased to wish every Paddys, Patrick, Patricia or Patrice a very Happy St Patrick’s Day.

St Patrick’s Day : an Irish tradition

St Patrick’s Day is a Christian commemoration party, celebrated in Ireland of course, but also everywhere else around the world.

“Saint Patrick

Patrick was a 5th-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Much of what is known about Saint Patrick comes from the Declaration, which was allegedly written by Patrick himself. It is believed that he was born in Roman Britain in the fourth century, into a wealthy Romano-British family. His father was a deacon and his grandfather was a priest in the Christian church. According to the Declaration, at the age of sixteen, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Gaelic Ireland.[13] It says that he spent six years there working as a shepherd and that during this time he “found God”. The Declaration says that God told Patrick to flee to the coast, where a ship would be waiting to take him home. After making his way home, Patrick went on to become a priest.”

Since 1903, St Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in Ireland, but it is not the national holiday.

Overall, St Patrick’s Day is the occasion to enjoy diversified entertainments in a festive atmosphere.

It is also the occasion to consume, often without moderation, a great quantity of beer.

Every year, this celebration makes Ireland’s heart sing.

However, if you haven’t got the chance of being in Dublin, Cork, Belfast or elsewhere on this beautiful Celtic land, you will still be able to find a spot that is respectable (or not) to fittingly celebrate St Patrick’s Day.

Generally, Irish Pubs are some of the best places to meet around a pint.

Unfortunately, St Patrick’s Day doesn’t happen during our campsite’s opening period.

But do not worry… We will fittingly celebrate St Patrick’s Day, from 21/04 till 15/05.

O’Pub offers a wide range of beers and whiskeys.

Did you know that Whiskey is originally an Irish beverage ?

During the holiday season, O’Pub will program open stage concerts, blind tests and will also obviously broadcast sports events on television.

So, this summer, go to O’Pub to experience magical moments in a St Patrick’s Day atmosphere.

I also want to take advantage of the occasion to wish our Chef a Happy St Patrick’s Day !
