Save While You Celebrate

As the nation’s favourite stout and arguably Ireland’s most iconic drink, we think it’s essential you can find the great taste of Guinness at a price you can get on board with. Using our data, you can now find the best pubs across the country to make your money go that extra bit further. Don’t pray on the luck of the Irish, find the cheapest pint near you for sure with this handy table. You can also share the knowledge to help more people save using our fancy infographic too!

After taking all of this info in, you may have noticed the difference in pricing across England. We recommend taking your St. Patrick’s day celebrations up north as their Guinness pricing is good enough grounds to finally settle the north vs south debate once and for all. Some of the worst county offenders for overcharging on this delicious beverage include East Sussex, Hampshire and Greater London. Some of the lowest cost are County Durham, Staffordshire and Merseyside.

Outside of England, choose your drinking destination wisely as there is just as much variation in pricing in Wales, Scotland and Ireland. We have to give props to Wales as out of all the areas in these countries, North Wales had the cheapest Guinness on average at ยฃ4.13. We’re more than happy to have our St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in good old Cymru!

The Verdict

Multiple pints of Guinness

As you can see, it’s quite surprising to see how much the price of a Guinness changes from place to place! The most expensive county to get this Irish stout ended up being Surrey at a staggering average of ยฃ5.76. Meanwhile, the lowest average county was West Yorkshire which on average sells Guinness at the humble price of ยฃ3.77. We know where we’re taking our partying!

Surprisingly, Ireland wasn’t home to the best price of a Guinness as you may have hoped for if you are going to take your celebrations to the motherland itself. The cheapest Irish Guinness we found was in Tinney’s Bar in Derry at ยฃ4.20. Though worth it to experience this fantastic celebration in its home and with the natives, you should stick to Great Britain if you want to get the most out of your money.

Use this info to your advantage! Get your family and friends together and take yourselves to your nearest bar or pub that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg for you to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day merrily.
