While Valentine’s Day seems like just yesterday, St. Patrick’s Day is rapidly approaching, and fortunately there are great places to enjoy the luck of the Irish in Kennebunkport Maine. Just around the corner from the Maine Stay Inn is a local favorite (and not just at this time of year!) – Ryan’s Corner House. This authentic Irish pub opened just two years ago, just in time for St. Paddy’s Day. In addition to some amazing brews, they offer fantastic Irish fare, as well as some more conventionally American options, just in case. But who can resist an amazing corned beef and cabbage right about now? But if you’re exploring southern Maine, you can check out their new location a few towns south in Ogunquit. It’s the perfect spot for a warm-up after a winter walk along the Marginal Way!
But Kennebunkport Maine is lucky to have another great option for St. Patrick’s Day pub crawling – which really is just lingering over indulgent meals for me! A few minutes up the road on Route 1 is Feile Restaurant and Pub, which also offers great music and entertainment. We’re so lucky to have three great places to enjoy authentic Irish food and beverages for this holiday (and throughout the year), but now we’re busy turning our attention to crafting a fun, festive, and delicious menu for St. Patrick’s Day. And thank goodness for Pinterest because we are accumulating lots of great ideas. But if you have any suggestions or favorite Irish recipes, we’d love suggestions!
