Many people think everyone in South Bend is Irish, since Notre Dame is known as the Fighting Irish. Well, I don’t know about the rest of the year, but of course we’re all Irish for St. Patrick’s Day!
South Bend hosts many festive events that weekend, including the annual St. Paddy’s Tent Party, to be held this year on Friday, March 12. Then on Saturday, March 13, we have a big parade that ends with the Greening of the East Race.
We have some great Irish pubs in town, including Fiddler’s Hearth, just a few minutes’ walk from the Inn. Start making your plans to come and spend St. Patrick’s Day weekend here in South Bend. It’s only a couple weeks away!
