It’s the greenest day of the year and a whopping 400 people attended the St Patrick’s Day celebration at Le Royal Meridien’s PJ O’Reilly’s on Friday 15 March.

The event was hosted in the Irish bar and poolside courtyard of the hotel and featured special guests Paddy Man and resident band Sweet Chilli Jam both in top form.

Sunshine and palm trees with water views; it was the perfect setting- some patrons saying it was the best St Patty’s day they have ever had.

The brunch spread included all you would expect in the U.A.E, with even Aussie favourite Tim Tams on the dessert bar.

The relaxed afternoon saw the Paddy Man band playing Irish renditions of hit songs, with fits of laughter at ‘Things You Don’t Say to Your Wife’- their version of Greenday’s Time of Your Life and popular Sweet Chilli Jam busting out classics into the evening.

The Irish feel was continued when the violinist took to the dance floor while playing and continued to play around the tables.

The event was to launch Le Royal Meridien’s Friday Brunch and if this was anything to go by, it will be a great event.
