Go green may have a different meaning in Dubai this weekend because… it’s St. Patrick’s Day! And, as you can imagine Dubai is going all out with promotions, some of them are even on all weekend – yay!

Here’s our pick of the top 5…

The Irish Village
When a venue has the word Irish in their name, you know that their celebrations are going to be good. And, that’s most certainly true with The Irish Village’s. Friday will see the venue host music acts Ruaile Ruaile and The MapleJacks as well as Irish dancers. They’ll also be offering guests a number of special mixes and tasty treats. Saturday is family day which means that kids will be treated to a number of activities such as face painting, a petting zoo and jumping castles.
