Ah, St Patricks Day – the one day a year being raucously drunk is a national right of passage. 

If you're felling particularly patriotic, you may want to indulge in a creamy pint of Guinness for the day that's in it, but with Dublin pubs charging through the nose for the traditional beverage, the hunt to award the accolade for the cheapest pint of Guinness began.  

The Sweatershop made it their mission to uncovered the cheapest and most expensive pubs in Dublin for St. Patricks Day:
