The celebration includes Irish-themed entertainment, along with food and drink.
The St. Patrick's Day fun begins Friday with a performance from 8 p.m. to midnight by Terry Buck.
The next day, Irish entertainers will be on hand throughout the day at the Claddagh.
At 1 p.m., Celtic Sounds will perform, and there will be Irish dancers entertaining patrons at 5 p.m. And for the evening crowd, you'll get to hear Mike and Eileen from 8 p.m. to midnight.
The fun continues Sunday with Trillium performing from noon to 4 p.m. The Ry Petermann Band will play from 5 to 8 p.m. Their performance also will feature Irish dancers at 6:30 p.m.
If you miss any of the entertainment over the weekend, on the actual St. Patrick's Day, you can come back for more. Celtic Sounds will be back from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, and Trillium will perform from 3 to 5 p.m. Irish dancers also will perform at 4 and 6:30 p.m.
Throughout the weekend and on Monday, the Claddagh will have special Irish food and Irish-themed drinks available for patrons.
More St. Paddy's Fun: If you've immersed yourself into the Irish culture enough at Claddagh Irish Pub, you can also get into the Irish spirit at Bar Louie along Randall Road in Geneva Commons this weekend.
The business will feature live entertainment, as well as green beer leading up to St. Patrick's Day.
Bar Louie is at 1602 Commons Drive.
Need a makeover: If you or your home needs a makeover, the folks at Algonquin Commons along Randall Road can help.
They're running a special promotion this entire month that could land you and your house a makeover.
You can enter the contest on the Algonquin Commons Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/AlgCommons or in the mall's guest services office.
For the personal makeover, they're asking people to tell them in words and photos why you need a makeover. Have you lost weight? Are you a new mom? Do you still have '70s bangs? Whatever your reason, you can put it up on the mall's Facebook page, along with a "before" photo.
There will be three stories chosen this month. If yours wins, you can get an outfit from Algonquin Commons and a beautify makeover.
You can enter the same way for the room makeover. Just post a "before" photo and tell your story. If you win, you could get a gift card to make over your room. There will be one room makeover winner chosen.
The contest runs until March 31.
