It’s easy to feel lucky in Las Vegas, but St. Patrick’s Day events in Nevada, complete with green beer, table games and live music, will have you feeling luckier than a four-leaf clover.
March 17: Rí Rá Irish Pub
Built from an authentic Irish pub that was brought all the way from County Wicklow to Las Vegas, Rí Rá Irish Pub portrays the sociable atmosphere of 19th-century Ireland all too well.

In addition, Rí Rá Irish Pub will also celebrate the holiday with live music from Black Donnelly’s, The Crooked Jacks and Achill Crossing throughout the day, alongside Irish dancers and bagpipers.
