We've had a goo on us since the sun came out this week and what better excuse for a few pints is there than Paddy’s Day. With that in mind, we took a look at what’s going on down in some of our favourite Fillit spaces.
Get yourself down to the Bernard Shaw on Friday for their free annual all day sesh! It all kicks off at 12pm with live music in the beer garden from Bodytonic Djs, Fulton & Gold, Daire Carolan any many more. Escape the chaos of the parade for something that’s *not* dripping in leprechauns and green beer ;) You needn’t worry about going hungry, as the infamous Eatyard food market will be in full swing with a brand new range of vendors serving up the tastiest street food and snacks. Of course, if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, the beloved Big Blue Bus will also be there dishing out delicious pizzas. Amid all of this excitement, there’s one very important thing happening, *drum roll please*.. the official, definitive Tayto vs King crisps showdown! So if not for St Paddy, make sure you get down and make your voice heard on one of the more pressing questions of our generation! Check out more about the event on Facebook.
Looking for something a little bit different this Paddy’s Day? As part of St Patrick’s Festival, The Sugar Club are hosting ‘God’s Waiting Room’ on Friday night starting from 9pm. God’s Waiting Room is a roundabout selection of the cinematic, library, rock ‘n’ roll, psych, experimental and independent music. This will all be presented by the brilliant DJ, producer and creator of original soundtracks, David Holmes. So make sure you get down there to enjoy a few drinks and a night of great music! You can check out more about the event on Facebook.
This Paddy’s Day, The Church Bar is going all out and hosting 10 whole nights of craic agus ceol! We all know one day’s not enough, so the lads are prolonging the festivities until March 22nd! Sure why not? We owe it to Paddy for driving the snakes out after all. There’s plenty of live music happening over the few days, so make sure and dodge the crowds by popping in to The Church for the perfect Paddy’s Day pint.
Put your trad dancing to the test and head down to The Grand Social for a few reels on March 18th. The pub is presenting their first ever Midnight Céili, with music from the amazing Traditional Arts Collective, one of the country’s best trad bands.
Learn how to dance and drink in true Irish fashion, in what promises to be a knee’s up event! What’s more is admission is free! For more info pop over to their Facebook.
