With the days being counted down to St. Patrick’s Day, Roz Purcell and The Marker Hotel on Grand Canal Square started the celebrations by turning the hotels iconic chalkboard-style building into a sea of green. The lights were officially turned on today, turning the renowned hotel into a beacon for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.
The team at The Marker Hotel has said Cead Mile Failte to nearly 100,000 guests over the past year. They are known for using 90% Irish suppliers in the hotel and for pouring 90,000 pints of Guinness in the last 12 months. Their bartenders, mixologists and chefs have had their hands full dealing with such high demand, and this upcoming week is going to be a particularly busy time for them!
With St. Patrick’s Day attracting more than 100,000 overseas visitors, The Marker Hotel Executive Chef Gareth Mullins decided to create a special St. Patrick’s themed menu of “Beef and Burgers” for our national holiday. It consists of a sharing platter for two with three cuts of John Stone beef and a flight of Fox’s Rock craft beers. Visitors to the hotel can chow down on slow cooked chilli beef cheek with whipped avocado, or a beautiful brisket hash with roast garlic aioli. The platter will cost 55 euro’s for 2 people. If you fancy something a bit smaller, the bar will be serving the traditional dish of coddle, costing 16.50 euro’s.
These special delicious dishes will be available from Friday March 17th to Sunday 19th in The Brasserie and Market Bar. Sounds like the perfect foodie way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
