Expect the Guinness to be flowing fast

Balmain Favourite, Cat and Fiddle Hotel, is celebrating St Patrick's Day in style this March.

St Patrick's Day is a joyous celebration of the heritage and culture of the Irish and on Tuesday, March 17 2015, the Cat and Fiddle will offer some truly exceptional Irish cuisine and free festive entertainment all day, including live Irish music and dance.

The Irish appetites will be smiling this St. Patrick's Day thanks to award-winning Irish chef Padraic Kielty's traditional menu. Patrons can enjoy culinary delights such as:

* Black stout & beef cobbler with green potato scones;

* Boiled Irish bacon with boxty , smoked parsnips & Irish whiskey mustard; and

* Corned beef and crispy colcannon with fried onion pickle & cabbage.

Kielty will also be serving his famous Irish breakfast with soda bread & buttered potato bread and all the traditional Irish trimmings from white pudding, black pudding to authentic Irish pork sausages, all day from 10am on Tuesday 17th March.

"St Patrick's Day is a great chance for everyone to enjoy the music, colour and lively banter of the Irish," said Kielty. "But for us it is also a chance to present a taste of what Ireland is like through our food. A chance to explore the culinary delights of our great country while enjoying a well poured Guinness and donning the green attire for the day".

Along with the specials, the Cat and Fiddle offer an extensive Irish-inspired menu - including hot chips with Ireland's beloved curry sauce or crispy spud skins with Irish red cheddar, topped with a 100 year old brown sauce recipe.

For those with a sweet tooth - take note of the delectable Guinness Chocolate Cheese Cake with Irish toffee, oat crunch, cocoa sorbet, and raspberry.

Revellers can get into the spirit of St Patrick's Day with the pre-Paddy's Party from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th March 2015. On the big day itself - Tuesday 17th March - the doors will open at 9am with Irish Breakfast served from 10am all day. Then enjoy live Irish music including fiddle players, Irish dancers and all day entertainment from 10am. Expect the Guinness to be flowing fast!

With all this "Irishness" you won't find a better place in Sydney this St. Patrick's Day.
