There is nary a chance that there will be a leprechaun in attendance (or is there?) but there will be plenty of Irish merriment at Ohio Village's annual "From the Pubs of Ireland" special St. Patrick's Day weekend event in Columbus, Ohio on Friday, March 14 and Saturday, March 15 from 6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. It is approximately a 2 hour drive from Cleveland to Columbus.
"From the Pubs of Ireland" Celebrate St. Patrick's Day weekend by enjoying a candlelit, hearty Irish pub meal in a 19th century setting in historic Ohio Village. The American House Hotel in the Village will play host to the event where you will be greeted by costumed interpreters. Festivities begin with the sounds of Irish instrumental music and a taste of St. Paddy's Punch to set the pub atmosphere.
Entertainment will be provided by the Ohio Village Singers, one of the longest running vocal ensembles in the United States specializing in period music. They will perform Irish ballads, humorous drinking songs and a bit of Irish wit and wisdom.
A cash bar will be available. (Could there be green beer?) Guests are encouraged to wear St. Patrick's Day attire.
Cost for the "From the Pubs of Ireland" event is $60 per person. There is a $4 fee for parking. Ohio Historical Society members receive a $10 discount per person and free parking. Seats are limited and reservations are required. Call 800-686-1541 to make reservations or get online at www.ohiohistory.org.
Ohio Village is located next to the Ohio Historical Center at 1982 Velma Ave. in Columbus, Ohio. It can be reached via I-71 at the East 17th Avenue exit. It is approximately a 2 hour drive from Cleveland. And be sure to watch out for those leprechauns. You never know when they may appear.
