The atmosphere was abuzz with excitement as guests enjoyed the GUINNESS creations and a cold, creamy stout while they enjoyed performances from local artists Church Mouse, Froya, Donamarie, Jumero, Kyoto Protocol, Diplomats of Drum, Ryan Jones and more, as well as stand-up comedy from Prakash Daniel which infused St. Patrick’s fun and laugher to the event.
There was plenty for foodies to enjoy with a slew of GUINNESS-infused bites and Irish delicacies, including a spectacular GUINNESS stout roast, Dublin Coddle, sliders and oysters – all paired perfectly with cold, creamy GUINNESS stout. Those with a sweet tooth indulged in GUINNESS stout Baileys Ice Cream Floats and GUINNESS stout iced coffee from the cocktail bar, as well as GUINNESS stout popcorn, brownies and a unique GUINNESS stout sorbet.
A festival would not be complete without exciting games and enticing prizes, and the GUINNESS St. Patrick’s Festival had them in droves. Some crowd favourites included the famous GUINNESS Draught Two Part Pour challenge and the Long Bar challenge, which saw festival-goers sliding a bottle of GUINNESS stout along a long table to accumulate points. Two winners proved to be the best of the best and have each been awarded a trip for two to Dublin to be part of the GUINNESS X Meatopia festival – a weekend-long love affair of meat, drink, fire and music.
