This St. Patrick’s Day season, Dublin’s Fado Pub & Kitchen invites visitors to join in the festivities.

Located at Bridge Park, this Irish pub will open its doors and offer big pints, live music, and more throughout the weekend.

As Failte Ireland, the National Tourism Development Authority, cranks up the excitement in efforts to sustain Ireland as a high-quality and competitive destination for tourists, everyone expects a bigger, louder, and more spectacular celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.

Ciara Sugrue, Head of Int’l Publicity & Trade Marketing of Failte Ireland, says, “It’s hugely important for the city, it’s worth about 110 million euros to the city in terms of economic impact.”
