PICTURES: You HAVE to See the Irish Institution Currently Being Advertised in Times Square

"Come for the scenery, stay for the food."

It’s one of the most famous destinations in the world, and now the millions of  tourists to New York’s Times Square are seeing a distinctive advert for one of Ireland’s most famous attractions… the Supermac’s Snack Box.  

The beloved food of Irish countrymen and women has attracted many fans over the years, reaching a new level of popularity with a continued endorsement for One Direction’s Niall Horan, but this may be its finest moment yet.

The celebrated Supermac’s Snack Box is currently inviting Americans to “come for the scenery, stay for the food” in Ireland.

The ‘note from home’ also reminded Irish living in New York that they are 2,963 miles away from their nearest Supermac’s.

Managing Director of Supermac’s, Pat McDonagh said “we wanted to give Irish living in one of the busiest cities in the world a minute to stop and reflect on home. The Supermac’s Snack Box is consistently mentioned as one of the main things Irish abroad miss about their homeland. I’ve lost count of the number of people who say Supermac’s is the first stop they make when they land on Irish soil!”

3 Times Square on 7th Avenue, one of New York City’s most prominent buildings, was chosen to feature the giant Supermac’s Snack Box.
