Is your name Patrick? Or any variation thereof? Say cheers - you've just been granted free entry to the Guinness Storehouse.

The offer, which applies on March 17th only, comes with the launch of the iconic attraction's 10th St. Patrick's Festival Celebrations.

Céilí flash mobs, music concerts and an Irish-language tour at 11am on March 17th are all on offer over the five-day festival.

"Embracing the fun and lively spirit of St. Patrick's, we will also be rolling out the green carpet and welcoming all Patricks, Patricias, Paddys, Pedros and Podges for free on March 17th," said Managing Director, Paul Carty.

A full list of variants on the name is available on its website, ranging from the Icelandic Patrekur to the Maori Patariki.

Visitors should bring ID to gain their complimentary admission. Everyone else, unfortunately, will be liable for the €20 entry fee.

This year, Dublin's St. Patrick's Festival runs from March 17-20th, with events ranging from the annual parade to funfairs at Merrion Square and Custom House Quay, and an Irish craft beer and whiskey village at the RDS.

Last September, the Guinness Storehouse was named ‘Europe’s leading tourist attraction’ at the prestigious World Travel Awards.
