Join Raglan Road at Downtown Disney for the ‘Great Irish Hooley’
Central Florida’s first ‘Great Irish Hooley’ will be hosted by Downtown Disney’s, Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant over Labor Day Weekend this year. A “hooley” is an Irish slang term for party or celebration and Raglan Road is planning quite a hooley. By combining a traditional Irish party and adding a modern twist, this Disney World event will bring fun for the entire family.
There will be Irish Dance workshops for all ages, Celtic style face painting and a special authentic menu created by Kevin Dundon, one of Ireland’s celebrity chefs. A special treat to have Kevin Dundon at the event as he has prepared meals for presidents, rock stars and movie stars and won many awards for his creations, including Ireland’s Chef of the Year in 2009.
“Dundon is one of a handful of Irish Chefs capable of measuring up to contemporaries in Britain, France and America. His creative, imaginative cuisine has its roots in logic, common sense, craft skills of the highest order and a focus on raw materials of the highest quality.” Ernie Whalley, Editor, Food & Wine Magazine.
The event will be accompanied by live music from several bands including “Full Set” who is celebrating the successful debut of their first album and will be touring the U.S. in the Fall. Other bands performing are “Elevation” (a U2 Tribute Band), “The Raglan Rogues”, “Danny Burns”, “Johnny ‘Snaggs’ Norton” and of course, “Creel” (Raglan Road’s house band).
The weekend’s event start Friday, August 31st at 5pm and last through Monday, September 3rd.
