So we wondered just how much “Irish specialities” will be on offer by the participating merchants along the river. Here goes...
If oysters, a stunning view, and potent drinks are your thing, then definitely check out Southbridge at 80 Boat Quay (the end closest to Riverwalk). Providing an actual 360° view of the Singapore skyline, the rooftop chill-out joint presents Native Irish Oysters specially flown from Galway Bay of Ireland. We tried them together with 2 of their Irish vodka concoctions; Irish Cola made with Jameson Irish Whiskey and Bailey’s Irish Cream; and Pat’s Martini which is a combination of Midori Liqueur, Belvedere and Triple Sec. As simple as these recipes might sound, they sure pack a punch. What do you expect from Southbridge, one of Singapore’s premier oyster bars (they have other oysters available too, and these Irish ones are actually from the seasonal menu) with an extensive cocktails list.

Corned Beef - No Irish party shall get away without serving it. You now have 3 places where you can try this: Hero’s Bar, Mogambo and Public House. We headed to Hero’s Bar for The Paddy’s, a burger with thinly-sliced corned beef topped with caramelized onions, Irish cheddar cheese, tomato and seeded mustard on a lightly-toasted bun, served with a generous side of chips that just went perfectly well with our favourite Somersby Apple Cider. Find Hero's Bar at 69 Circular Road.
