Marketing for St Patrick’s Day

Marketing your brand or bar for St Patrick’s Day

St Patrick’s Day sees a global spend of over £3.5billion and is one of the top five drinking days in America as well as UK and Ireland. St Patrick’s Day takes place on Friday, March 17. So, how as an employer can you take advantage of Paddy’s day?

We’ve already mentioned that St Patrick’s Day is one of the biggest drinking days so promoting your brand with bar accessories seems like the logical way to go. People like to let loose on Paddy’s day regardless of them having a hint of Irish blood or not.

If you’re running a bar or restaurant, then these products can ensure your place is the first and last port of call on the Friday night out. Even if you’re not you can still market your brand around St Patrick’s Day with these versatile options.

T-shirts and hoodies

Good and green is a buzz-phrase we occasionally use when we’re talking about eco-friendly products. Here we are getting a little more literal. 82% of people out on St Patrick’s Day wear green so handing out promotional green t-shirts and hoodies seems like the sensible choice. Our ever-growing range of promotional clothing will have the shapes, sizes and the all-important colour green for you.


A nice and simple promotional product that doesn’t need much more explanation. Stock your bar, restaurant or office kitchen out with green napkins with your brand’s logo printed on.

Pint glasses and tankards

The classic tankards can be used to stock the bar or even as a free giveaway. St Patrick’s Day comes around once a year so you’re going to want products you can use other instances too. These branded tankards can also be given away at weddings, exhibitions and tradeshows.

Drinks carriers

Sticking with the alcohol theme we have a great range of drinks holders available, including holders for shot glasses and pint glasses. Get these in green for a great way to market your brand.

Cocktail sets

The last products we’ll look at is our promotional cocktail maker and shaker sets. For the more executive products to use alongside St Patrick’s Day then these products might be just the thing you’re looking for. Housing all the usual cocktail making kit these kits can be engraved with your brand’s logo.

If these products are a little out of your price range but you still want to take advantage of cocktails on Paddy’s day then you can look at getting promotional cocktail stirrers. We have cocktail stirrers that you can shape to your heart’s content. Get it in green and you’re good to go for Patrick’s special occasion.
