Everyone knows that Walt Disney World Resort has four incredible theme parks, each with its own unique theme that create a truly magical vacation. There are also two great Water Parks to enjoy on a hot day. And if you just want a break from the Parks, heading to Disney Springs is always a fantastic idea. Disney Springs has some of the best shopping and dining spots on Walt Disney World Resort property, and there is even a movie theater — so you can take a break, relax, and enjoy a blockbuster hit.
One of the most popular places to eat in Disney Springs is Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant. Raglan Road offers up traditional Irish fare with a modern twist, along with great live entertainment. Raglan Road definitely celebrates all things Irish, and they certainly know how to throw a great party. That’s why, for the 10th year in a row, Raglan Road will be celebrating Labor Day Weekend with its Great Irish Hooley. The word “hooley” is a Gaelic term for a festive party that features live entertainment and dancing.
Disney Parks Blog shared more on the fun celebration:
Taking the stage will be a first-rate lineup from the Irish music world that are guaranteed to get your toes tapping:
- Téada – This leading Irish traditional band will headline the Hooley lineup. Dubbed “invigorating” by the Washington Post, the band just released their sixth album.
- One for the Foxes – Exciting new transatlantic group merging backgrounds in Irish and American folk music for an eclectic vibe.
- Celtic Croí (Heart) – Talented trio from Dublin, Belfast, and Glasgow pump up the Hooley volume.
- Gobhán – Dynamic duo from County Down, Ireland, playing guitar, fiddle and vocals.
And of course, it’s not an Irish party without a taste of the Emerald Isle. Whether you have a hankering for their famous Fish & Chips or are looking to find a new favorite like the Chicken Donut or the Bacon and Cabbage Roll, you’re in for a real treat. The pub will also feature new whiskeys and a special Hooley brew, the De Fesht, that brings an Oktoberfest-like spirit to the late-summer festivities. In addition to the all-day menu, the Rollicking Raglan Brunch will be served throughout the weekend, including Labor Day Monday, September 5 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
But that’s not all! Be sure to bring your dancing shoes, because the ever-popular Raglan Road Irish Dancers will teach guests a dance step or two to try out at your table. Complimentary Celtic face painting rounds out the event offerings.
