If you’re hoping to get started on some St. Patrick’s Day festivities sooner rather than later, we’ve got an exciting event to share with you.

Now in its second year, The Road to Dublin will bring the spirit (and spirits) of St. Patrick’s Day to two Freehouse Collective locations in Toronto and Vancouver respectively – one at The Ballyhoo in Vancouver and one at Toronto’s Beerhall at Walrus.

Both pop-ups will transform the spaces into the legendary Jameson Distillery Bow Street, where John Jameson himself launched the iconic whiskey in 1780.

The curated menus at both locations will offer tasty fuel for the celebrations to come, with classics like the Jameson Mule and Bow St. Boulevardier ready to sip. As well, there will be comforting bites like Mini Jambons, Lamb Sliders, and Corned Beef and Cabbage to munch on.

Guests can also enjoy live music, partake in tastings, and participate in cocktail-making seminars at both locations.

Best of all? Those who come in will receive scratch cards with every purchase of a Jameson drink, Guinness, or special food item with instant prizes, including food, drink, and gift cards.

This also includes the chance to win the grand prize – a trip for two to Dublin and a VIP Jameson experience with two nights’ accommodation in the city to enjoy Temple Bar, the River Liffey, and all the famous sights along the way.

Both pop-ups will run from March 1st to 17th, right up to St. Patrick’s Day festivities.
