Two people have been arrested after a man died from stab wounds in Sydney's west.

Police said the 29-year-old victim, an Irish national, died at the scene on Watson Road Padstow early Saturday morning after suffering a stab wound to the neck.

The arrested pair are currently being interviewed by police.
