Event Brand Guinness
Peekskill St. Patrick’s Day Parade Weekend Kick Off
Kick off the Peekskill St. Patrick’s Day Parade Weekend at The Quiet Man Public House. Featuring samples form Guinness Storehouse, Smithwick’s, Guinness, and Harp Lager.
Located in the heart of the St. James’s Gate Brewery, the Guinness Storehouse® is Ireland’s most popular tourist attraction. It’s the home of the Black Stuff, the heart of Dublin and an unforgettable start to your Irish adventure.
The journey begins at the bottom of the world’s largest pint glass and continues up through seven floors filled with interactive experiences that fuse our long brewing heritage with Ireland’s rich history. At the top, you’ll be rewarded with a pint of perfection in our world-famous rooftop Gravity Bar. Now that’s our kind of higher education.
A HERITAGE CRAFT
From where it all began—with one man and £100—to where we are now, we’ve been honing our craft since 1759. With over 20 world-class beers in production, and a wealth of exciting new brews being dreamed up daily by our ever-enterprising brewers, it’s no surprise that the Guinness name is known and loved in 150 countries. But, no matter where it is brewed or served, you can be sure your Guinness is still inspired by the pioneering batches of our legendary stout, crafted at St. James’s Gate in Dublin, over 200 years ago.
St. Patrick’s Day Parade Weekend kick off at The Quiet Man Public House, Friday, March 13h, 8pm-10pm.

THIS PLACE HAS THE MAKINGS OF A PUBLIC HOUSE..
That’s a pretty solid declaration, but anyone who was around for the “birth” of The Quiet Man Public House really had to have second – and third – thoughts about being so positive.
The building that houses this lovely Irish pub was a derelict for 30 years or more. Walls and ceilings had collapsed, the floor was crumbled in many spots. One or two irreverent observers opined that if it were not for the cobwebs and spider nests, even more of the structure would have fallen.
WHO IS “THE QUIET MAN”?
In a 1950s movie “The Quiet Man,” John Wayne played the title character. The movie is familiar enough with Irish-Americans to convey “Irish-ness” when the name is applied to a pub or restaurant.
So it was no accident when Cathal selected the name for the new establishment. Much of the movie was filmed in the village of Cong, just a few miles from Owenwee, where the McGreal family has lived for generations. Their home is literally in the shadow of Crogh Patrick, the legendary mountain where St. Patrick fasted and prayed for 40 days and 40 nights and, according to legend, drove the snakes out of Ireland.
THIS BAR HAS A HISTORY OF ITS OWN
When you pull up a stool and park your elbows on the bar at the Quiet Man Public House you are literally sharing history with thousands of U.S. Navy enlisted men and officers who served on the Battleship North Carolina during World War II.
The bar was lovingly crafted by master wood-worker Cathal McGreal from teak that made up the original deck of the ship and was replaced a few years ago. It is known as the purple heart bar for the plugs of purple heart wood that now fill the bolt holes formerly used to affix the deck to the ship.
