How to Write Awesome St Patrick’s Instagram Captions

Unfortunately, writing engaging and creative St Patrick’s Day Instagram captions is a tad harder than getting drunk to the rhythm of your proud Irish heritage! Not sure how to craft Irish captions that stand out? Here are some tips to get you started!

  • Gather a huge list of words related to St Patrick’s Day, Ireland, and Irish pride before you start writing your captions. That way, you’ll have a lucky well of inspiration to drink from as you slay your caption game.
  • Include Irish proverbs in your captions if you feel like it. They can make your St Patty’s Day Instagram captions feel more authentic — and awaken that green spirit in you! (Just a heads-up: All of the captions in our “quotes” section without attribution are Irish proverbs.)
  • Whatever route you go, always highlight the uniquely fun spirit of St Patrick’s Day in your captions. Now’s the time to play with words, deploy all your cheesy puns, and shamelessly share the art of getting drunk with your Instagram followers. You don’t get that chance often, do you? Go forth and be relentless!
  • Don’t be afraid to rock that Irish pride — because enthusiasm is contagious, and the best Irish Instagram captions make your followers itch to pretend they rock at Irish dancing.
  • Emojis are not optional. While you’ve got lots of options, try to work 🍻, 🇮🇪, 🍀, 🌈, and 🎉 into your caption bonanza!
  • When in doubt, Google “Irish drinking songs” and go crazy copying and pasting Irish lyrics that celebrate all things dancing, whiskey (sorry, “whisky”), and leprechauns.

You could wait for all that 🍻 to get your creative (and definitely 110% green) caption ideas flowing, but we’ve got your back. Scroll down to discover the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. We come bearing fire St Patrick’s Day Captions for Instagram that will look right at home in your feed!
