How We Produced This Guide
We researched St. Patrick’s Day celebrations across the UK and Ireland to identify 12 cities which hold particularly notable St. Patrick’s Day events. We then gave them scores based on six factors: accommodation prices, number of holiday rentals available, number of people attending their St. Patrick’s Day parade, the price of a pint of Guinness, the number of nightclubs in the city and the number of Irish pubs.
After collecting data on each of these factors, we assigned each data point a representative numerical value between 0 and 5, with the lowest score in each category receiving 0 points and the highest score receiving 5. Thus, the hypothetical perfect score would be 30. We used the following equation to calculate scores for each factor:
Score (i) = 5((i-min)/(max-min))
The accommodation price and availability scores come from HomeToGo’s own accommodation data and are for a four-person holiday rental for one night on the St. Patrick’s Day weekend (16th-17th March 2019). The data was collected on the 6th February 2019.
The parade score reflects the number of people attending St. Patrick’s Day parades. This data comes from the organisations responsible for organising the parades.
The Guinness score is based on the price of a pint of Guinness found on online pub menus, or where these were unavailable by contacting pubs directly. Euro prices were converted to pounds on the 6th February 2019.
The Irish pub and nightclub scores are based on numbers of Irish pubs and nightclubs listed in each city on a leading online maps service. For cities in Great Britain, the number of Irish pubs is the number of venues described as such in their listing. For cities in Ireland, all pubs in the city were counted as Irish.
Please note that this is a forecast and prices and availability may change between now and St. Patrick’s Day.
