Celebrate the big green day of the Irish on March 20 with a traditional Irish Gala dinner! Taste delicious Irish food and drinks, listen to Irish music and dance as a real Irish!
Le Meridien hotel organizes the gala dinner in cooperation with the Irish-Hungarian Business Circle. The event is being held for the second time as last year’s gala dinner proved to be very successful. Hospitality will be the hallmarks of the celebration. St Patrick’s day gala dinner will be on Saturday 20th March, at 7.00 p.m. in Le Bourbon restaurant, Le Meridien hotel.
Saint Patrick's Day (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig) colloquially St. Paddy's Day or simply Paddy's Day, is an annual feast day that celebrates Saint Patrick (circa AD 385–461), the most commonly recognised of the patron saints of Ireland, and is generally celebrated on 17 March.
Green ribbons and shamrocks were worn in celebration of St Patrick's Day as early as the 17th century. He is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian Irish, and the wearing and display of shamrocks and shamrock-inspired designs have become a ubiquitous feature of the day. The phrase "the wearing of the green", meaning to wear a shamrock on one's clothing, derives from the song of the same name.
Today, Saint Patrick's Day is widely celebrated by Irish and non-Irish alike. Many people, regardless of ethnic background, wear green-coloured clothing and items. Traditionally, those who are caught not wearing green are pinched, usually affectionately.
The gala dinner is a wonderful opportunity for anybody to come along with colleagues and friends and sample Irish Hungarian welcome in Budapest. The event includes welcome drinks, Guinness draught beer, a four course dinner with Irish food, traditional Irish music and the famous „Ceilidh” dance.
The menu of the night
Whiting and salmon terrine with mayonnaise, Dublin bay prawns
