Irish St Patrick's Day Costume Ideas

Below you will discover a wide range of St Patrick’s Day fancy dress ideas for both men and women, and there are many interesting ideas here, so be sure to read the whole post!

While watching all the floats at a local Saint Patrick’s parade on March 17th, I soon realised that the Irish really know how to have a good time! It was clear that for an Irish-themed event most people will choose to dress in green and white with a splash of orange to represent the national flag colours – the orange was usually in the form of a wig or beard.

Become St. Patrick Himself

So here’s an alternative idea. Why not become the Apostle of Ireland, St. Patrick? This costume is available from Amazon in five sizes for men from small to XX-large, and includes the hat, robe, scarf, and a gold cross.

Leprechaun Piggy Back Costume

One of the most popular St Patricks Day outfit choices is one that represents a leprechaun. In Irish folklore, this is a mischievous fairy creature who spends his spare time making shoes and counting gold coins he found in a pot at the end of a rainbow!

Carry Me® Leprechaun Adult Costume One Size

Now this is my favourite costume, and it will go down a storm at any Irish themed carnival or party. This Leprechaun carry me outfit for adults is hilarious, although it’s a tad expensive at £36.48. Please also note that the shamrock hat and ginger beard that the guy is wearing in the picture is not included, but, thankfully, isn’t expensive.
