Have your own party (safely) in your lovely Stowe vacation rental with your core group of friends or family. Turn the Celtic music up loud and have a friendly Irish Step Dance competition, or settle down and enjoy a parade or two from years past. And there’s plenty of room for lots of Irish dancing on the open floor plan of your luxury rental in Stowe!
Make a quick stop on your way in, and stock up on plenty of party food and drink. Buy plenty of green food coloring to make your own green beer or green eggs and ham. This could be the year to try that Irish Soda Bread recipe or Boxty (just a cool Irish name for potato pancakes). Your rental’s kitchen is fully equipped so all you have to bring is the ingredients and culinary skills. Better yet, take advantage of our Pre-Arrival Grocery Service and everything will be waiting for you when you arrive!
Of course, every bar and restaurant that’s open will be serving up Shepard’s Pie, Bangers and Mash, and plenty of Guinness. Head to Burt’s Irish Pub or O’Grady’s Grill & Bar here in Stowe for the real deal. Or order take-out from one of our local pubs or restaurants from one of our rentals in Stowe. Do you really want to spend hours making corned beef and cabbage anyway, when you can just pick it up and start eating?
Spring is almost here, things are starting to turn green again, and you really need to get the kids out of the house! Make sure everyone is dressed all in green, and head to your favorite area hiking trail and where you can have your own parade. Wrap a broom handle with green and white streamers, and let the kids take turns being the parade master. The Stowe Recreational Path will be perfect for your parade! It’s close, it’s an easy hike and the scenery is gorgeous. And there are plenty of benches and picnic tables along the way too, just right for a quick snack or lunch of pasties and green beer.
Whether you decide to stay in or head out, just be sure to wear plenty of green! Would you like more suggestions for a safe, fun St. Patrick’s here in Stowe? Give us a call! We can suggest the perfect Stowe vacation rental for your holiday, too.
