Burj Al Arab Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day

Burj Al Arab lights up ‘green’ and joins the worldwide greening of city icons saluting the Irish community in Dubai by donning the traditional shamrock.

The Burj Al Arab celebrated St. Patrick’s Day this past Thursday as it became the latest building to join the global green lighting phenomenon of city monuments.

The greening of the iconic buildings around the world is an initiative begun by Tourism Ireland. The Burj Al Arab, the luxurious seven-star hotel of the Jumeirah Group, joined other world renowned monuments such as the Empire State Building in New York, Table Mountain in Cape Town, CN Tower in Toronto and the London Eye illuminating the night sky with a beautiful green glow for St. Patrick’s Day.
