St Patrick's day in Poland

The celebration of St Patrick's day in Poland, has really taken off in recent years. Name the Good bars in your local area that make a real effort and are up for the craic, and shame the bad ones - who only want to make a few extra sheckles.

March 17th Thursday for anyone that had forgotten.

Not one of them.

For a start, any bar that takes money (cash only, no receipt) for a St Patrick's night is quite clearly taking the ****.

The Mbassy in Krakow is a good one, Irish owned by a fella who's been here for donkey's years.

I don't even know what you are talking about?

Do you mean not putting the money through the books? What has that got to do with St. Paddy's?

Thats right Delph, the good ones will make it an " all dayer"

The Mbassy is a good one and being Irish owned they are up for the party.

The Irish Arms in Krakow is a good'n too, owned by the same fella mentioned above.

They've got a 4 day party planned, traditional Irish folk band from the Emerald Isle flying in just for the big event! Céilidh session Saturday night, open mic Sunday.

Just wish it was in Warsaw. I have been to the " New Irish Arms" but it was just after the new year and midweek. I hear it gets rockin at the weekends. The good thing about Maurice, is that he always likes to give something back to his regulars.

In Warsaw Jimmy Bradley's is by far the best choice. Irish pub on Miodowa is a very distant second. Patrick's is a very very bad idea, especially for foreigners.

Very very distant!

Scary.

But Bradleys is pretty good.

Was that the place linked to the suspicious death of a Brit?

You mean the place in which at least two expats had their drinks spiked and died as a result? Yes, that's the one. There were also some very unsavoury rumours about German paedophiles and that bar but I never heard the full story. The British guy who died at the Marriott after having his drink spiked was a bloke I drank with a couple of times. Two very good friends of mine have also been spiked there.

There is that. A bit like Bahrain where there are European-style pubs on the 10th floor of a building.

I wonde where else there is to go in Warsaw now Morgans and that place by Metro Wilanowska are gone. I think the Irish Embassy staff go to Bradleys sometimes, which is a bit of a seal of approval. Do you know what Legends is like?

Almost all the furniture, the huge satellite dish, and all the regulars and staff from Cork (the place by Metro Wilanowska) moved to Bradleys! It's also the main base for the Warsaw GAA (Gaelic sports club). As for Irish embassy staff, my favourite one if them used to drink in that little two level bar on Wilcza very near the police station (you know it) but he's moved on now.

As an Irishman I find foreigners attitudes to Ireland and St.Patrick's day insulting and patronizing. There is much more to Irish culture than drink. We have our own ancient sports Gaelic football and hurling as well as our own language, music, dancing etc . etc and we have contributed greatly to the world in very field.

Most Irish people don 't drink Guinness and enjoy alcohol IN MODERATION.

We have a very wide range of interests and although we enjoy a drink we do not any more so than any other race

Most Irish find it patronizing how people who don 't give a **** about Ireland pretent to be Irish and/or like it.

The best St Patrick's day gift would be for foreign leeches like the poles to return home and GIVE US THE REAL IRELAND BACK!! not this ugly bastardised run-down ****hole it has become

A couple of million others like you, and people wouldn't bother with St Patrick's Day anyway.

I just had a look at their website - looks quite upmarket and really rather nice,

Entirely correct.

a good place for a meal

Let's put it this way: if you can convince me you enjoyed it, I'll pay triple the cost. Although to be fair they do try very hard.

I suspect it'll be a pretty cold day before they start having wet tee-shirt contests, bingo and darts 'n doms night

You wear the t-shirt and I'll tip water over it!
Legs is also one of the very few bars with a darts board in it.

As a non-irishman, I agree 110% with what you said there.

I'd 110% support that if you promised to prevent any of the Ulster 'Loyalists' from coming to Poland. Deal?

I know some Polish developers here in Poland, that would say the best St Pats gift would be for the irish developers to go home and stop driving up the price of land in the city. Works both ways Ireland4ever. Ireland is facing problems because of the banks loose money policy, not the Polish workers.

Isn't Saint Patrick's day an insult to Irish people to begin with?
Saint Patrick was Likely English who the Irish hate & Was certainly not Irish at all. Then Irish people themselves get drunk & celebrate leperchauns?

It would be like if Polish made Pope Ratzinger day & then got drunk over a German Pope when most Polish people hate Germans.
Of course Polish people are not stupid enough to do something like that LOLOL

I live in the U.S & I have gone out on Saint Patricks day & almost everyone going out getting Drunk is Irish. So wait who is doing what?

Polish people are bringing Intelligent Life to Ireland.

Poland scored a 106 iq in the most recent iq test vs 97 iq for Ireland.
The Iq test from the 1970's showed Poland scored a 99 iq (Under communism) While Ireland scored a 93 iq.

Which is pretty bad. In the 1970's Polish Americans scored a 109 iq. African Americans scored a 85 iq in the 1970's. There is a reason the Irish are called the N*ggers of Europe ;-)

By whom exactly? Sounds like a line from a crap movie. Black people are the "n@ggers" of Europe if you insist on using such terms

Poland scored a 106

The thing is, scoring high in an IQ test means nothing, as is evident form the stupidity of this post. Alot of Polish, maybe like you, seem to equate "intelligence" with, for example, knowing the capitals of Europe or the chemical formula for sulphuric acid. Whearas real "intelligence" is more about getting on with people well. Which you obviously don't. (Incidentally the average Irish person is very well educated)

English who the Irish hate

Do they? That's funny half my friends and family are Irish and they don't appear to hate me. Perhaps I should be told? (yeh and plus about 50 per cent of the English population)

Nothing like a crap sweeping generalisation to start the day...:)

Iq is Real Intelligence.
What you are talking about is more along the lines of Emotional Intelligence. Which is not very important.

White males score lowest in Emotional Intelligence while black women score highest in EMotiinal intelligence.

Who has been more successful? So it seems the opposite people who score low on Emotional intelligence & High on Iq are most likely to go far & are the ones who drive our society.

Iq is generally important people with a higher tend to make more money & are less likely to divorce & less likely to go to jail.

Ireland4ever is a troll and is not even Irish - ignore him.

Polskimoc is also a troll and unfortunately comes across as a cliché dumb polack immigrant frantically looking to finger point.

the most recent iq test

LOL - the one, the only one - WTF are you even talking about?

Results of dozens of IQ tests surface and resurface all the time and on this very site. Results are always different. You'll need to do better than that.

Since you love your statistics so much, maybe then you can explain why Ireland has almost 10 times as many nobel prize winners per capita than Poland?
