Have a Shamrockin’ Good Time This St. Paddy’s Day at The Irish Whisper

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t have to mean crowded sports bars and watery green beer. For a classed up version of all the best Ireland has to offer, visit newly reopened The Irish Whisper on Fleet Street in the National Harbor. This restaurant and bar offers classic fare, along with proper whiskeys and cigars (if you’re so inclined). The Guinness is always on tap, and the fish and chips or warm pastrami Rueben taste particularly festive this time of year. Enjoy the rustic dining room, or a cozy seat by the stone fireplace while you sip your favorite scotch, or head out to the patio for a selection from the on-site humidor. This is how you’re going to want to celebrate St Patrick’s Day from now on! The Irish Whisper also offers a weekday happy hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. with half off food, draft beer, wine, and specialty cocktails. 

Forget St. Paddy’s Day—this might be your new weekday spot. The Irish Whisper opens daily at 4 p.m. (2 p.m. on Sundays).
