St. Patrick’s Day at Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pubs in Whistler and Vancouver

3 Mar 2016 | Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside

(Whistler, BC) March 17th is a great day to be Irish! And, Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pubs will once again be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day all day long on Thursday, March 17.

The publicans in Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub - Whistler, located at the base of both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains in Whistler Village, have a long standing tradition of celebration on St. Paddy’s Day. This year, for the first time, Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub – Main Street will also be hosting St. Paddy’s Day fun in Vancouver, in their newest Main Street location.

The “go-to” drink… Guinness of course! Last year the Whistler team poured 1306 pints of Guinness. That’s 21 kegs!

Music and dancing are essential ingredients for any March 17th party’s success. Dubh Linn Gate Whistler entertainment line-up includes The Splinters and Ruckus Deluxe with live music starting at 1:00PM.

Meanwhile, on the shores of False Creek, Vancouver’s Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub will play host to music makers beginning at 11:00AM. The Doolins, The Roommates, and Whiskey Dicks will take the stage throughout the day, with two charming appearances from De Danaan School of Irish Dancers.

St. Patrick’s Day at any Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub is an extremely popular event, so it is recommended revellers arrive well before happy hour. Whistler location starts alcohol service at 9:00AM and the pub will be full to the rafters by 11:00AM. The Vancouver pub goers should expect a similar atmosphere when the pub doors open at 11:00AM.

In the Whistler location, to prime the taps, the Dubh Linn Gate team has created “St. Practice Day” which takes place one week prior to St. Paddy’s Day on March 10th. Look for pints of Guinness, Murphy’s and Guinness Blends featured at $6.75, and half-priced Irish Whiskeys throughout the day. Music from “Not Sold Separately” will keep après ski toes tapping in the village from 4:00PM-5:00PM and then again at 8:00PM onwards.

On St. Practice Day a lucky winner in attendance will receive two all access passes to attend St. Patrick’s Day one week later in Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub in Whistler, a $200 gift certificate to be used in the pub and a one-night stay at Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre on March 17th.

For out-of-towners wanting to trek to Whistler for St. Practice Day, Thursday March 10th, there are one-bedroom suites available at Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre starting from $377 (including parking), a special BC Resident’s Offer.
