Morristown Hotel Raises a Glass to Gaelic Pride After Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade

The Hanover Marriott Embraces the Erin-Go-Bragh Spirit at Its Authentic Irish Pub

WHIPPANY, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 03/10/14 -- When St. Patrick's Day rolls around at the Hanover Marriott each year, demonstrating Irish pride involves a lot more than wearing green socks. This hotel near historic Morristown pulls out all the stops at its Auld Shebeen pub where Irishmen and -women -- and those who are Irish just for the day -- can pull up a seat, order a pint and take in the many Celtic entertainments.

Short of visiting the Emerald Isle, finding a more authentic pub than Auld Shebeen is impossible. That's because this hotel in Morristown, NJ had the pub built in Ireland from reclaimed materials and then shipped across the pond to be reassembled on property.

The pub may now boast an American address, but its soul is purely Irish. On Saturday, March 15, the pub will open its doors at 11 a.m. to welcome celebrants who are either beginning their day at Auld Shebeen, or arriving after the annual Morris County St. Patrick's Day Parade.

The parade begins at noon and features bands, bagpipers, Irish step dancers and more to commemorate the many Irish contributions to the community. It's a lively affair that can only be outshined by the goings-on of the most Irish pub near Parsippany, New Jersey. Guests who arrive at Auld Shebeen can order traditional Irish fare (think corned beef and cabbage, Irish stout beef stew and Irish car-bomb cheesecake) and choose from a variety of specialty beers on tap, including Murphy's Irish Stout, Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout, Smithwick's, Guinness and Harp Lager.

The parade day festivities, however, are just the beginning. On St. Patrick's Day, Two bagpipers will serenade the pub on several occasions throughout the day, and Guinness Girls will be on-hand to lend a festive spirit to the revelry. The Irish musician Mike McGovern, meanwhile, will entertain the crowds with traditional Irish music between 1 and 9 p.m.

Guests can make the most of their St. Paddy's celebrations by staying a few extra days at this Parsippany, New Jersey hotel. With 353 redesigned guest rooms, two restaurants, a fitness center and a location just 40 miles from New York City, the property has plenty going on to keep spirits high during the holiday weekend. And its Save Big on Long Weekends promotion, where rates start as low as $109 per night for a three-night vacation, is the perfect way to save a little extra cash for an extra glass of Guinness. Travelers can learn more about the package, the pub and the hotel at www.marriott.com/EWRHO.
