Going sightseeing in Dubai will inevitably bring you to the famous Irish drinking hole nestled at the Aviation Club, The Irish Village. With St. Paddy’s day nearing (March 17), this quaint pub is going all out with Irish fare cooked and served the traditional way. If you have missed hearing Bob Geldof play live (he plays today), there is an impressive line-up organized at the pub in anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day.
You could even go on a safari tour in Dubai of a different kind for St. Patrick’s Day. Start with lunch at
Dublin Arms and move on to lively dancing atWaxy O’ Connor’spub.
Few people might be able to make it for the feast mass on the actual day, as most feast masses are usually celebrated on the Saturday that follows the feast date. One World can organize for you an Irish outing that will start at the Parish Hall of St. Francis Church (Jebel Ali) with mass at 10.00 am on March 21, 2009. You could book aDubai car rental with us to get you there and thereafter to your hotel apartments in Dubai.
It might be too late to book tickets for the Dubai Irish Society’s St. Patrick’s Day Ball 2009, but you could instead listen to Pure Irish Craic, a live authentic Irish music band on March 17, 2009. They are playing at The Westin Hotel from 7.00 pm onwards.
Gaelic football, hurling, dancing, music and merrymaking are some of the things even the Irish in Dubai are passionate about. Let ourDubai tour company know if you would like to join them in the festivities.
