Perhaps the luck of the Irish will help us see some green grass soon. While we are waiting for that to happen, why not catch a C&J bus to these great St. Patrick’s Day events in Portsmouth, Boston or NYC and have a little old-fashioned Irish “craic” (fun)?! As the Irish famously say, “May the road rise up to meet you, but let C&J drive” (OK, we said that, but you get the point).
Grab a pint or an Irish coffee at Rí Rá where everyone is Irish on St. Patty’s Day. This timeless pub was restored in Ireland and shipped to its new home of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Built from authentic pub salvage, you can enjoy a pint of Guinness at the restored bar from the famous Pulpit Pit in Waterford or chow down on some classic corned beef.
