O’Sheas giant beer garden has reopened in Manchester, just in time for the upcoming St Patrick’s Day celebrations.

It was one of the biggest openings of 2021 – launching just in time for the easing of Covid-restrictions, which had seen Manchester’s hospitality venues shut for months in a bid to stem the spread of the virus.

Now, O’Sheas giant Irish beer garden has returned to the city – this time as an indoor venue.

As part of the reopening, operators have decided to kick off their St Patrick’s Day celebrations early with a huge two-week Irish festival running from now until 24 March.

This means for the next fortnight the new and improved venue will play host to some great Irish music and Irish-American street food, not to mention ice-cold pints of Guinness and other popular bevvies.

Still within staggering distance of Piccadilly station, punters can expect dry Irish stout, pornstar and espresso martinis on tap, plus bagels and loaded fries courtesy.

Re-designed and draped in the colours of Ireland, a clear roof above rows of tables will keep revellers dry no matter what the weather.


Eat New York returns as O’Sheas street food partner, having designed a new food menu with an Irish American twist. Think bagels, burgers and loaded fries aplenty.

Music, meanwhile, will include a fixture of bands and local performers such as Green Hot
Clover, The Joe Keegan Band, Live Lounge, Culainn, Nicky Mc Callan, Quare Craic, Harry James and the Irish Ramblers, Mollys, Chambers featuring Richard Sanderson on fiddle, The Last Drop.


O’Sheas have built a reputation for pouring some of the best Guinness outside of Ireland, brilliant live shows and heart-stopping sports since opening in 1994.

The converted, turn-of-the-century packing and shipping warehouse is set between the traditionally Irish area of Little Ireland and St Austins on Princess Street.

Tickets are limited and expected to fly out, so people are being advised to be quick to book their slots. Book yours here.
