Flag-shaped hotel to join other global landmarks to mark Irish celebration

Thursday to celebrate St Patrick’s Day, the annual global celebration of things
The seven-star hotel, which is managed by Jumeirah Group and

– the traditional colour of Ireland.

the Empire State Building in New York, Table Mountain in Cape Town and the
London Eye – to celebrate Ireland’s National Day.
