These Irish businesses on George Street at the Rocks celebrated St Patrick's Day this week. The Irish Design Shop (top) was decorated in Irish colours. The shop is in a former Victorian terrace house with the Tara Tea Room located behind it. The Mercantile Hotel (bottom) is an Irish pub which was overflowing with patrons and beer. The Mercantile Hotel, established in 1915 and built in the Federation Free Style, is on the national heritage register for its historical significance to the area.
