Barcelona is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in style with the Seventh International Currach Regatta, run by Iomramh, an association that promotes Irish culture and sport in Barcelona. The currach is a traditional Irish rowing boat, and 20 international teams, both amateur and professional, will be coming to take part in the regatta. Spectators will be able to enjoy the races from the port in between the Maremagnum bridge and Via Laietana (near the Roy Lichtenstein sculpture).
Besides the races, the day will be packed with Irish and Catalan culture. Expect live traditional Irish music, Irish dancers, face painters and theatrical performers. And, of course, it wouldn’t be St Patrick’s without the Guinness and lots of traditional Irish food.
