O'Murray's Irish Bar and Grill, in Morisset, plans weekend of fun and entertainment for St Patrick's Day

There will be Irish dancing, Irish music, Irish food and plenty of Guinness on offer when O'Murray's Irish Bar and Grill, in Morisset, honours St Patrick's Day this weekend.

Just four weeks into their new venture (in the space formerly occupied by the Olde Bakehouse Restaurant) O'Murray's co-owners Rick, Kylie and Danny Murray have promised to stage a St Patrick's Day celebration to remember.

St Patrick's Day is Sunday, March 17, but the venue is making a weekend of it.

"We'll have live music (courtesy of Jordan Snowden and Troy Dwyer) over both Saturday and Sunday, face painting for the kids, live Irish dancing, and even a laser light show in the trees," Rick Murray said.

The venue had quickly found its niche, Mr Murray said.

"It's not a pub. It's not a club. It's a bar and grill, and not an a-la-carte restaurant," he said.

"But the food is absolute best quality, sourced locally, and everything in the kitchen is made from scratch."

Popular items on chef David Collins's menu include Guinness pie, bangers and mash, lamb shanks, and an O'Murray's burger so large it defeats many diners.

The bar and grill also offered cheese platters and light meals for patrons who dropped in at the bar in the afternoon, or after work, Mr Murray said.
