Raglan Road Great Irish Hooley Cancelled–Pub is open for dining and entertainment!
Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant at Disney Springs
Cancels 2020 Labor Day Weekend Music Festival
ORLANDO, Fla., (Aug. 21, 2020) – Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant at Disney Springs has cancelled this year’s Labor Day weekend boutique music festival — the Great Irish Hooley.
Typically, the pub books top Irish bands, musicians and dancers to perform during the four-day-and-night Hooley, but pandemic border closures, as well as social-distancing and dining-capacity restrictions, make holding the popular festival impossible over Labor Day weekend 2020.
That doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of great contemporary Irish food, entertainment and fun at Raglan Road, which reopened in June after incorporating a long list of safety measures throughout the restaurant. Guests can enjoy award-winning, chef-inspired cuisine, hand-crafted cocktails, craft beers and ales along with the popular live Irish music and dance party packed with Celtic flair.
As the long Labor Day weekend approaches, guests can book socially-distanced tables for dinner and for the Rollicking Raglan Weekend Brunch. Drop-in guests may find distanced seating at one of the pub’s bars, in one of three dining rooms or on the patio, but reservations are highly recommended.
Guests also can browse the treasures in the pub’s Shop for Ireland boutique packed with everything from cookbooks and kitchen wares to a wide selection of apparel, jewelry, flat caps and foodstuffs.
Cooke’s of Dublin, the Irish quick-service restaurant adjacent to the pub, offers traditional favorites like Dublin-style fish & chips, burgers and savory pies to carry out, eat in or devour at an outside table from 11 a.m. to midnight.
