St. Patrick’s Day
After the parade, we headed to Mulligan’s Pub, as recommended by an Irish friend. What a great pub! These bartenders are on top of anyone needing a drink, and they pour a beautiful pint. The atmosphere was happy, loud, and fun. A very happy St. Paddy’s Day indeed.
We visited the home of Guinness, the Storehouse at St. Jame’s Gate. We haven’t been to the Storehouse since the early 2000’s, and wow, it’s changed a lot in 20 years. There are live shows of music and dance, displays include so much technology, and there are different types of Guinness to try. We prefer it when it looked and felt like a real warehouse, but the updated look with technology and bands brings it into the 21st century with something for everyone.
We tried the Guinness Cold Brew Coffee, really a great combination of flavors. Also delicious is the Baby Guinness, made with a coffee liqueur and Bailey’s Irish Cream, not actually Guinness but it looks like a mini version of a Perfect Pint.
Six Nations Rugby Match
The luck of the Irish was with us this weekend. We met up with a friend of Rob’s who’s from Dublin at The Boar’s Head pub for dinner. When he found out we didn’t have plans the following day, he made a call and got us tickets to the Six Nations rugby match between Ireland and Scotland! We enjoyed every minute, and Ireland won, clinching the Triple Crown with wins over Scotland, Wales, and England. With the happy crowd, we made our way to the Merry Cobbler to meet up with some more Irish friends. A great time.
