It’s time for Valentine’s Day to move over, because February has an even more important date to be celebrating: National Margarita Day. If this month has left you feeling lonely, if you’re all loved up and want to scream it to the world, or if you’re just looking for an excuse to drink with your best pals – National Margarita Day is the day for all!

The day of admiration for this cherished drink is this Friday, February 22nd, and we’ve found the six best places to celebrate this momentous occasion:


Teaming up with the gang at Herradura Tequila, The Osbourne Hotel will be hosting a fiesta that you won’t want to miss! From 5:30pm onwards there will be a special menu with an array of Mexican food on offer, as well as a live mariachi performance from Duo Serenata – so it looks like your after-work drinks are sorted! If you’re lucky enough to have the Friday off, the Osbourne will let you enjoy their Herradura Tequila margaritas the whole day through, (because National Margarita Day means tequila is welcome at any time!).

This much-loved Irish bar is turning Mexican for the evening, with watermelon, strawberry, and mango margaritas on the cards – as well as sangria jugs! The party will kick on late into the evening, complete with live entertainment and a giant piñata for you to try your hand at after one (or a few) too many tequila treats!
