Joe Biden welcomed Leo Varadkar to the White House on Friday for St. Patrick’s Day, as the Irish leader vowed to roll out the red carpet for the president’s upcoming visit.
Biden, who is proud of his Irish roots, where his great-great-grandfather was born, said he looks forward to visiting Ireland “soon”.
“It’s good to have you back in the Oval Office, Taoiseach. It’s a big day in my grandparents’ household, our household, big day here,” he said.
Varadkar said the entire Republic of Ireland is looking out for Biden. The president is expected to travel there next month to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement.
“I promise we’re going to roll out the red carpet and it’s going to be a visit like no other. Everyone is already excited about it,” the taoiseach said.

The White House went green for the occasion. The water in the fountain on the North Lawn was painted green, shamrocks adorned the Oval Office, and the president wore a green tie with white polka dots.
Green is the theme of the day amid a jam-packed schedule of holiday-related activities, including an Oval Office meeting, a Capitol Hill luncheon hosted by speaker Kevin McCarthy, and Irish eggs for breakfast with Vice President Kamala Harris.
Varadkar’s visit comes after Biden said he plans to visit both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland next month, marking the 25th anniversary of the US-brokered Good Friday Agreement.
The agreement helped end the sectarian violence that has raged for three decades over whether Northern Ireland should unite with Ireland or remain part of the United Kingdom.
“I want to recognize the central role the US has played in the peace process on our island, moving it forward and critical points,” Varadkar said Friday morning during his meeting with Harris.

Prior to his meeting with Biden, Varadkar, known as the taoiseach, and his partner Matthew Barrett visited the Naval Observatory for breakfast with Harris and Second Lord Doug Emhoff. The menu said ‘Eggs St. Patrick’. It’s an Irish twist on Eggs Benedict.
Harris wore a green pantsuit for the occasion. The three men had cloverleaf in the breast pockets of their suit jackets.
Acknowledging Biden’s love of all things Irish, she noted, “He’s pretty exuberant in that joy and I’ve got the bug now.”
Later on Friday, the boy band One Direction and Irish singer Niall Horan will perform for leaders and guests at the White House.
Horan was one of five members of One Direction, the popular Anglo-Irish boy band from 2010, which sold more than 70 million records worldwide. The band officially broke up in January 2016.
During Friday’s visit, Varadkar is expected to present Biden with an engraved crystal bowl of shamrocks, a tradition that began in 1952.
