What To Do This Weekend March 17

Celebrate St.Patrick’s Day all weekend long with an array of craic-tastic activities


Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day the Dubai way at The Pointe, Palm Jumeirah. Taking place on the hour every hour from 7pm on March 17, the largest fountain in the world will host a special performance of the multi-award-winning Irish dancing spectacular, Riverdance, with the sea and sky lit green as the fountains dance to the legendary show’s most famous music. 

Completely free to attend, for the best seats in the house, book a table at one of The Pointe’s many restaurants overlooking the fountains and enjoy dinner and one heck of a show as you raise a glass of something fizzy (or flat!) to Ireland’s national day. 


Kick off the weekend with a power-packed workout for you and your pooch at BARE DXB. A Thursday night calorie-killer for fit chicks and their canine companions, you and your dog will be put through their paces with a high intensity workout paired with weight training and conditioning.

Great for dogs that bark, but don’t bite, pre-booking of the 5.30pm class at BARE DXB, Business Bay, is essential. 


Reform Social & Grill’s annual food and beer festival, Springfest, returns this weekend, with socially-distanced updates in line with government regulations. Kicking off on March 17, with a St. Patrick’s Day celebration, followed by a Big British BBQ on Thursday night, head down on Friday, March 19 from 11am to enjoy a host of sun-soaked, family-friendly activities throughout the day – where kids can eat for free.

Priced AED 200 for four tokens, with each token redeemable against food or beverages, call 04 454 2638 or WhatsApp 00971 58 647 8692 to book.


Complete your weekend of celebrating the Emerald Isle and all things Irishat The Blacksmith Bar and Eatery in Wyndham Dubai Marina Hotel, whose week-long homage to the delicious delicacies of the Emerald Isle comes to a close on Saturday.  

To mark the most important day in the Irish calendar, St Patrick’s food specials will be priced at AED 75 each or AED 100 complete with a pint of the black stuff – we’ll be tucking into a Steak & Guinness pie as we enjoy the amazing Dubai weather on the terrace.

To book, call 04 407 8873.
