Ever imagined what it would be like to run your own pub? What if that pub were in Ireland, and was named in your honor?
This April, that dream will become a reality for one lucky drinker, thanks to a competition that’s being run by Guinness and Tourism Ireland.
Guinness will hand the winner keys to the Joseph McHugh pub, located on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, for 48 hours. To enter, all you have to do is register your name and post a photo of yourself having fun with friends on St. Patrick’s Day (tagging #GuinnessGetTogether and #Contest in the photo.)
The lucky individual and three of their friends will be whisked off on a week-long trip, starting in Dublin in April. First stop is Guinness’ St. James’s Gate Brewery, the home “Irish Champagne.” After that, the group will travel across the country, to run the pub for the weekend. There’s no need to worry if you have no prior experience, help is on hand from a DJ, chef, and Guinness expert.
The competition is open to residents of the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, USA, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, South Korea, Australia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and Singapore, for contestants aged 25-years and older.
While those may sound like slim chances of winning, you can be thankful the entry requirements are considerably easier than they were 10 years ago.
