St Patrick is back, and he’s driven the snacks out of Ireland (like in the legend) and into the Courtyard of High Street Phoenix, Lower Parel, for a very Celtic party on march 18 and 19. Say hello to eats, drinks, lovely music and the thrill of the Dublin streets.

On March 17, you’ll have the luck of the Irish as renowned Irish Singer NiamhNíCharra and her band — Kevin Corbett, Dominic Keogh, Damien Doherty — perform for the first time ever in India (at The Irish House Lower Parel outpost). Niamh is an award-winning violin and concertina player, and hopes you’re ready for a jig.

On Saturday evening, the acoustic beauty of Rohit Vasudevan’s music will fill the Courtyard, followed by SahejBakshi aka Dualist Inquiry’s brainy, gorgeous electronica. (No, we don’t think they’ll take your requests for an interpretation of ‘Sweet Molly Malone’ but you can try.) On Sunday, djembe drum circle Taal Inc. promise to hold you spellbound, just before the carnival closes out with a Best Kept Secret gig.

In between the music, take a wander through the Irish farmer’s market, get a picture taken at Paddy’s photo booth (no snakes allowed!) or play games like giant Jenga, basket pong, hammer and nail, and limbo with friends. Prefer to eat alone? There’s a man versus burger challenge that puts you into battle with a 1.5 kg burger, on the house if you finish it. Start training.

Don’t forget to some drinking together with all the dancing you’ll be doing: there’s special green beer for lucky clovers (but also plenty of the traditional variety), plus whiskey cocktails at the Jameson bar. The Irish House kitchen will be dealing out the Irish Fish & Chips; mac and cheese fries, grill bowls, plus smashing appetisers from a new menu. and Put on that green hat and bust out your Saoirse Ronan (or Ronan Keating) accent. May the road rise to meet you.

Getting there: High Street Phoenix Courtyard, March 18 and 19.
