In 1927 the sale of alcohol was banned on three days of the year: St. Patrick’s Day, Christmas Day, and Good Friday. Now, over 90 years later, the government have finally decided to lift the ban for Good Friday.
The St. Patricks Day restrictions were lifted way back in 1960, when commercial pressure to allow the sale of alcohol won out. These days it’s no different, and having wondered why we still carry on this tradition, the Irish government have allowed the sale of alcohol on Good Friday for the first time since 1927.
Although some publicans have decided to keep closed on Good Friday, here at the Irish Whiskey Museum we are open for business! So book a tour or drop in for a drink, we’re serving till late 😉
