Great Irish Hooley Music Festival Returns Labor Day Weekend at Raglan Road in Disney Springs

The Great Irish Hooley returns for its 7th year at Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant in Disney Springs on August 31 through September 3.

Celebrating Irish song, dance, food and drink over Labor Day weekend, the Great Irish Hooley kicks off performances by Irish bands and the Raglan Road Irish Dance Troupe beginning at 3 p.m. Friday, August 31, and continuing all day Saturday and Sunday through late Monday, Sept. 3.  Shows will take place on the pub’s Grand Room stage. Bands also will play the pub’s patio stage and fans can enjoy great food and drinks throughout the pub.

Some this year’s festival headliners include:

  • Lisa Canny Band  The outrageously talented Lisa Canny, 7-time All-Ireland champion on harp and banjo, is an emerging Irish force blending pop and hip-hop with traditional Irish rhythms. (Saturday through Monday) 
  • Billow Wood – Known as Flat Out when they played Raglan Road in 2016, this male/female four-piece band fuses their unique brand of instrumentation with multi-vocals and harmonies for a blend of Irish and folk music. (Monday)

The Great Irish Hooley promises a high-energy music festival for adults and families on August 31 through Sept. 3 at Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant in Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort.
