The green light to party is on

IN celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day, a famous Irish cultural festival attributed to the patron saint of Ireland known according to legend, to have sent serpents into the sea after they attacked him, hence the absence of snakes across Ireland and the global annual festivity it spawned since the 17th century.

Thanks to Saint Patrick, the Irish along with the rest of us who enjoy our pint or two, have another reason to celebrate.

Throughout the month of March, Guinness “paints the town green” transforming bars across Malaysia into “Irish pubs”. While the Irish in Malaysia will feel very much at home at these selected F&B venues, locals and those of other nationalities will have a chance to see, taste and get a feel of what the Irish and Ireland are all about.

From song and dance performances to amusing games that offer prizes, not forgetting Guinness aplenty, including Guinness-inspired menus to complete that whole Irish festive flavour, selected F&B outlets will wear facades that fit in perfectly on Dublin’s fair streets. These hotspots will also receive the St Patrick’s parade to up the Irish fun and festivity.

Guinness, the brand closely identified with Ireland, has been a proud supporter of Saint Patrick’s Day all over the world. This year, Guinness is practically giving away 10,000 glasses or bottles of Guinness Draught, Guinness Foreign Extra Stout and Guinness Bright.

To be a recipient of this giveaway, just buy a set of Guinness at participating bars and pubs, receive an iconic St Patrick’s Hat and partake in the “St Patrick’s Hat Trick” contest, which asks to snap a creative photo of yourself having fun while wearing your hat, share it on Facebook with the hashtag #StPatricksHatTrick and #GuinnessMY. You and your friends stand a chance to win five glasses or bottles of Guinness.

Learn how to get hold of other giveaways on Guinness’ Facebook and Instagram social media channels.

From brain teasers, puzzles and riddles, even deciphering the notorious thick Irish accent – the month of March is going to be filled with fun and laughter together with Guinness. So get on your green garb, put on your Irish accent, and gather with friends and family at these Irish-turned hotspots about town. Information on other participating venues are available on Contests and offers are open to non-Muslims over the age of 21 (T&C apply).
