Four days of Celtic music by live bands, Irish dancing and authentic Irish fare served up in the restaurant
Labor Day weekend is all about that “work hard, play hard” mentality, and the folks at Downtown Disney’s resident pub, Raglan Road, are fully on board. They had so much fun at last year’s inaugural Great Irish Hooley that they’re bringing it back again this year. It’s four days full of Irish shenanigans, where patrons not only gorge themselves on traditional Irish fare, but also work off that corned beef and cabbage with interactive Irish dance workshops led by choreographer Ronan McCormack, plus Irish music sessions with Dublin-born Declan Masterson. A stacked lineup of live bands, such as Scythian, Creel and the Farrell Brothers, adds a folk and rock twist to traditional Irish music, while guests céilí (Irish line dance) their way through the weekend. Grab a pint of dark, Irish stout and lace up your ghillies – you’ve worked hard all year for this.
