Enjoy a Pint of The Black Stuff this St. Patrick’s Day 17/3/17!


St. Patrick’s Day, a day that fills our hearts and minds with Irish pride and our streets with all things green, falls on Friday March 17th this year, meaning we have an entire weekend to celebrate the joy of being Irish, with our friends from around the world!

Marching bands, dancers, acrobats, bagpipers, Irish step dancers, choirs from Ireland and international destinations will be joining the parade to showcase the very best in talent and entertainment. The world-renowned St Patrick’s Day parade will bring joy to Dublin’s streets when it kicks off at 12 noon from Parnell Square and winding its way throughout the city centre, with thousands of people lining its every turn and bend.
