(ABC 6 NEWS) - It's St. Patrick's Day, and some local businesses are getting ready for the holiday. At one Rochester restaurant, you can practically step inside of Dublin, Ireland. 

At the Olde Brick House in downtown Rochester, everything from the decor to the seating was all built-in Dublin, Ireland, so if you want to get in the St. Patty's Day spirit, this is just one place you can do it. 

This is the Olde Brick House's first St. Patrick's Day in their Rochester location. They opened this past November. 

While they cannot have a big celebration for the holiday, the restaurant is giving people a more traditional St. Patrick's Day, with foods like shepherds pie and Guinness stew and drinks such as Jameson and Guinness. 

"Being that everything came here from Dublin, Ireland, we still wanted to celebrate St. Patrick's Day kind of their style. We are happy to be apart of the community, and you know, look forward to what the summer brings," said Olde Brick House Director of Operations, Paula Rathman.

The Rochester Downtown Alliance also created a list of its Pot of Gold St. Patrick's Day activities and things you can do to help support local businesses.
