Celebrate Irish Heritage Month at The Dupont Circle

Throughout the month of March, The Dupont Circle is proud to celebrate our Irish family ownership and heritage with a selection of traditional dishes, innovative cocktails, the finest Irish whiskey, and specialty wine celebrating the Irish Wine Geese.

                    Great Irish Tour                                              

Featuring a selection of cocktails adapted from The Coral Room cocktail bar within our sister hotel, The Bloomsbury, The Great Irish Tour is an indulgent celebration of the tastes and local flavours to be discovered across the landscape of Ireland. These delectable pours encapsulate the urban idyll of James Joyce's Dublin, the rugged and unbidden beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way coastline and the lush pastures for which the Emerald Isle is so well known.
