St. Patty’s Date Night

In this post: Enjoy this grand date night for St. Patty’s with the movie Leap Year, a delicious Irish dinner, and a colorful game of poker. Plus more! 

Hello, dear ones! I hope you are well. I know the time for St. Patty’s has past, but you can get a head start for next year…while I catch up ;).

One of my favorite chick flicks is the movie Leap Year. It’s actually rated PG. There is only one scene that requires caution. Overall, it is a sweet story of unexpected romance and figuring out how to enjoy the important things in life. It’s set in Ireland, so it has become our tradition to watch Leap Year during St. Patrick’s Day.


This year we enjoyed Irish Stew and Irish Soda Bread.  I don’t drink any alcoholic brews, so we had cream sodas. 


We broke out a deck of cards to play poker with Skittles.  We also chose fake St. Patty’s tattoos.


Here are the recipes for our Irish dinner:

We didn’t get to do much because we were tired. However, I thought of several ideas you can add to spice this date up.

Other ideas:

  • Make chicken stew together, like Declan and Anna.
  • Really kiss each other.
  • Listen to Irish Pop music and learn to do an Irish jig.
  • Ask “If your house was on fire and you had only 60 seconds to grab what is most important to you, what would you take?” (What Declan asks Anna in the movie)
  • Re-enact your proposal

God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
