HEAD to Murphys on March 17 for their annual St Patrick’s Day Festival and celebrate in style, taking in views of the city from the Rooftop Bar and third-level garden in the sky.
Kicking off at 8am with a traditional Irish breakfast (complete with black pudding and soda bread) followed by a string of performances in the Front Bar and carpark.
Geelong-born Irish-loving band The Go Set, this year’s headline act, is a Celtic rock band that has toured the UK, Europe and USA.
They have headlined the Port Fairy Folk Festival and will make this year’s St Patrick’s Festival a day to remember.
There’s a designated family area with free face-painting, fairy floss, popcorn and more for the family during the day and a
giant inflatable pub serving up ice-cold drinks outside.
Geelong’s original and authentic St Patrick’s Day celebration will include free entry before 4pm and $10 after and Murphys co-owner Shaun Aspinall said it is the best place to celebrate this year’s Paddy’s day.
“This is the biggest event on the Murphys calendar, paying homage to our Irish history.
There is only one day we close off the street and extend the bar to the carpark, it’s a day not to be missed,” he said.
The festival will be held across all three-levels of Murphys and will spill into the carpark and surrounding Coronation Street for everybody’s favourite street party.
“If I have one piece of advice to anyone thinking of attending get in early with free entry before 4pm, as this is gearing up to be the biggest festival yet.”
Murphys is located at 30 Aberdeen St, Geelong West, go to murphysgeelong.com.au for more information.
