St. Patrick’s Day at The Irish Heather
212 Carrall Street
On Tuesday March 17th, join the Heather Hospitality Group for the company’s 18th year of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day since the opening of The Irish Heather.Over the years The Irish Heather has had some crazy St. Patrick’s Days, packed to the rafters with locals and whoever famous happened to be in town. From U2 to Sean Penn and everyone in-between.
The event in Ireland is not the same as what it has become worldwide. It can best be likened to North America’s Thanksgiving, with the day being given over to churchgoing and large family dinners. It wasn’t until the early 70’s that pubs in Ireland were allowed to open on St. Patrick’s Day.
Hoist a pint at Vancouver’s only Irish-owned bar this St. Patrick’s Day. Savour classic Irish dishes over lunch or dinner – think hearty pot pies, fish & chips, and bangers & mash – as Irish pipers and dancers (including Sean Heather’s own daughter, Orla) entertain the crowds. Whether you miss your family and friends back home that you cannot be with, or you simply love the Irish culture, The Irish Heather has got you covered.
As with years past, the Heather Group has secured Rainier Provisions across the street for “Baby Heather.” So at the very least patrons will get a seat and a drink there, while waiting for space to open in The Irish Heather.
