St. Patrick’s Day Party Food

This St. Patrick’s Day Party Food list is all you need to get your party started this weekend! Grab some green beer and get snacking!

St. Patrick’s Day Party Food Recipes

St. Patrick’s Day is usually just dinner and a couple of drinks at home with the family. We’re beyond going out to bars to celebrate, I mean WAY beyond. So a nice dinner at home with the kids is exactly what we like to do!

Main Courses

We’ve got much more for you than jut corned beef, although of course we have that on our St. Patrick’s Day Party Food list too!

Irish Carnitas

Shredded corned beef with limes and Guinness beer cans

Even if you think you don’t like corned beef, give these Irish Carnitas a try. Shredded corned beef tossed in my famous whiskey glaze makes this a dinner worth having a party for.


Crock Pot Corned Beef 

Crock Pot Corned Beef is a corned beef recipe made with wine and chicken broth

If you’re looking for a more traditional corned beef recipe for your St. Patrick’s Day party, I like this one because it’s easy and keeps you free to stay in party mode while it’s cooking away in your slow cooker.

This corned beef recipe turn out super tender, with the sides included!


Guiness Shepherd’s Pie

Guinness Beef Shepherd's Pie with a spoon in the casserole dish

If corned beef isn’t your thing, try this beef shepherd’s pie simmered with Guinness beer. This dish can be made entirely ahead of time and popped into the oven when you’re ready!


Creamy Corned Beef and Potato Chowder

This Creamy Corned Beef Chowder is a total comfort food leftover dinner recipe!

This chowder recipe is so comforting and hearty, we make extra corned beef just to be able to make it. But sometimes we like to enjoy it with our St. Patrick’s Day dinner so you can grab a few slices of corned beef at your deli counter.



A party isn’t a party without the apps! We’ve got some great ideas here for you, give a couple of them a try!

Corned Beef Irish Nachos

Corned Beef Irish Nachos are the perfect appetizer or dinner for St. Patrick's Day!

So again, if you want to enjoy these Irish Nachos with your St. Patrick’s Day dinner, just head to the deli counter and get a few slices of corned beef that you can dice up and add to the top of your nachos.

Candied Pecans

Pecan recipe with a sweet sugar coating

These sweet and just slightly spicy pecans are always gone in minutes! Perfect along with your glass of green beer, which no list of St. Patrick’s Day Party Food should be without.

Artichoke Walnut Pesto

Artichoke pesto with walnuts and parmesan cheese on a piece of toasted bread

This pesto recipe is done in just about 5 minutes. Make it ahead of time and stash it in the fridge until you’re ready! Spread it on toasted crostini, crackers or use it as a dip for vegetables!

Cheesy Corned Beef Tater Tots

These tater tots are unbelievably addicting. Make these with your leftover corned beef or add them to your St. Patrick’s Day Party Food menu with some corned beef from the deli!

Reuben Fritters

Another great use for leftover corned beef, but again, just grab some corned beef from your deli counter if you want to add these crispy little apps to your St. Patrick’s Day menu!

Roasted Artichoke Salad

We love this roasted artichoke salad, and it sure fits into the green theme for St. Patrick’s Day!

Creamed Spinach

This creamy spinach recipe is perfect as a steak house side, but it also goes really well with corned beef!


Colcannon mashed potatoes with a spoon in a bowl

Colcannon is basically a mashed potato recipe with cabbage and bacon stirred in. Do we need to say more???

Fried Cabbage with Bacon

Fried Cabbage recipe with bacon and caramelized onions

The only way to eat cabbage in my opinion. Fried up with simple herbs and spices and tossed with thick pieces of crispy bacon.

Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread recipe with butter and a knife

Can we even have a St. Patrick’s Day Party Food list without this soda bread? Slice it up, toast it up a bit so that it’s warm and slather tons of butter all over it. There’s nothing better!

Oven Roasted Cabbage Steaks

Oven Roasted Cabbage Recipe is made with purple and green cabbage

Roasting any type of vegetable brings out the sweetness and flavor and this oven roasted cabbage is no exception!
