Labor Day weekend marks the halfway point to another St. Patrick’s Day, and if you can’t wait for March to go all out with your Plastic Paddy celebrations, make your way down to Raglan Road at Downtown Disney for an Irish celebration that’s surprisingly authentic. The Great Irish Hooley brings in a slew of real Irish musicians for a long weekend of performances, from the traditional seisiún-style songs of the West Coast Trio to the Celtgrass of JigJam to the modern pop of the counterintuitively named Screaming Orphans. Bring the bairns and get their faces painted while you sample four limited-edition beers from Ireland’s Rye River Brewing, including a Raglan Road saison made exclusively for the weekend. Make sure to try chef Kevin Dundon’s new seafood-centric dishes while you’re there.
