A toast for St Patrick’s Day, “May the roof above us never fall in, and may we friends beneath it never fall out.

March 17th each year, St Patrick’s Day, is one of the most important for Irish Pubs around the world. On this day visitors flock to their local Irish Pub to take part in the worldwide celebrations that turn the world green while enjoying a pint of the black stuff!
Iconic sites around the world and a host of major landmarks will turn green to celebrate St Patrick’s Day; The Colosseum, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro and the Sacré-Cœur Basilica in Paris among others will nod to Ireland. This year, even Liam Neeson is wishing the world a Happy St Patrick’s Day in a new Tourism Ireland campaign!

The popularity of Irish Pubs however, extends beyond this one day a year… So, why are they so popular?

The popularity and appeal of Irish Pubs, in our opinion, is due to their conviviality and authenticity. Authenticity instead of transported themes is vital to the success of an Irish Pub. People engage with the sense of community, friendship and conviviality they find in an authentic Irish pub – what better place to be this St Patricks Day?!
Irish Pubs that express genuine Irish culture, hospitality and traditions are welcoming, making the consumer want to return again and again. By combining the key factors of accurate authentic design, great music, great food, drink and friendly welcoming staff trained in the ‘Irish way’, the Irish Pub offers a relaxed and welcoming environment – an escape from the everyday, a place to contemplate and a place to socialise.…. Of course the ‘Craic’ is essential!

Irish Pub Company pubs are authentic representations of Ireland. Each of our pubs has its own story, a soul, an authentic environment and offers an authentic customer experience.  See Our Project Styles

So this year, get to your local Irish Pub and have a Very Happy St Patrick’s Day!
