The taste of Guinness infuses WIP and SOULed OUT outlets with Saint Patrick’s Day spirit
March marks the celebration of Ireland’s foremost patron saint, also known as the ‘Apostle of Ireland’. Popularized across the globe by the ever-expanding Irish diaspora, Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival and Malaysians across the Nation, known worldwide for our love of parties, have adopted the tradition with typical enthusiasm.

Available now until March 31st, patrons at SOULed OUT will enjoy awesome redemptions and discounts whenever they purchase a coupon booklet of 5 pints of Guinness @ RM100.
