Glyn Daunt, of the Jack Duggans Irish Pub, said it will be a day of everything Irish.

“The doors will open at 10am and the Guinness will start flowing,” he said.

“We’ll have traditional Irish food – beef and Guinness pie, Irish stew – and a good atmosphere.

“St Patrick is our national saint and the day is our Australia Day. It’s a day we can celebrate Ireland and its traditions.”

St Patrick was a fifth-century Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland and tradition holds that he died on March 17 and buried at Downpatrick.

Live entertainment with Acadie will be held during lunchtime (11.30am to 2.30pm), which will feature Irish music.
