Street Food Market
Did you know St Patrick’s Day was traditionally known as the day of feasting? That means it’s a great excuse to try some delicious food and drink from Ireland.
To whet your appetite, last year’s mouth-watering array of tasty treats included Irish black pudding, Scotch eggs, Irish fried chicken sarnies and American-style Irish beef-burgers! Top Irish chef John Relihan was the star culinary attraction in 2016. This year promises to be even bigger!
