We should say from the outset that International Women’s Day is very much a political day, and not to be confused with the hallmark holidays of mother’s day or father’s day. There are serious struggles going on in Ireland and around the world today.
We, being a pub website, just want to show some of the pubs doing something to mark the day.
Bull and Castle
Bull and Castle are giving €1 from every meal towards ‘Dress for success’, a charity helping support the economic independence of women by providing professional clothing, career development tools, and a support network.
Adelphi on Abbey Street will be giving all ladies a complimentary toblerone cocktail.
The Two Sister’s
The Two Sister’s is owned and operated by Deirdre Devitt, who is currently serving as the chair of the Licensed Vintners Association. She is the first woman to hold the role in the 200 years of it’s existence. She’ll be celebrating with complimentary bubbles and Belgian chocolates.
The Bernard Shaw
“On International Women’s Day itself on March 8th at 6pm we’ll have the opening night of an exhibition featuring works by over 8 local female artists in various media from photography and line drawing to painting and illustrations. We’ll also host a Spoken Word event at 8pm that evening featuring local poets and performers including Sarah Devereux, Caoimhe Lavelle, Hazel Hogan, Clara Rose Thornton and more tba.” Full details via this link.
