Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR), a Dubai Properties Group destination, hosted an Irish Culture Day in partnership with Prime Travel featuring traditional music and dance performances in celebration of St Patrick’s Day.

The event, held adjacent to the Covent Garden Market at The Walk on 12 March, invited families to participate in a host of Irish activity and amusement. A dance-off competition was followed by a raffle draw for a pair of tickets to Dublin, Ireland from Tourism Ireland and Prime Travel, along with a host of fun giveaways.

Guests also enjoyed Irish-themed face painting along with other family friendly activities. Ireland’s national emblem was distributed to visitors, while a treasure-hunt was a source of merriment among the participants.

The Walk joined cities around the world in celebrating St Patrick’s Day and was among iconic buildings and attractions including the Sydney Opera House, the London Eye, the Empire State Building and the CN Tower in Toronto, in an initiative led by Tourism Ireland
