Fun news out of Raglan Road Irish Pub today if you’re counting down the minutes to St. Patrick’s Day celebrations!
Everyone’s favorite spot to get their green on will host not one, but TWO special dining events during their upcoming Mighty Festival!
The festival, which takes place from Friday, March 7, to Monday, March 17, will feature a stellar line-up of talented musicians and dancers, all celebrating the culture and arts of the Emerald Isle. Fan favorites The Willis Clan will be back again this year, and U2 tribute band Elevation will also be on hand for the party. The award-winning We Banjo 3 also joins the lineup! Creel, Raglan Road’s stellar house band, as well as others, will also appear. Two stages — one at Raglan Road and one at WestSide — will play home to the musical acts.
Guests can also learn the art of Irish dance during “From Roots to Riverdance” workshops, led by renowned Irish dancer and choreographer Ronan McCormack of the original Riverdance cast.
Other festivities at the family-friendly event will include face painting, stilt walkers, and children’s activities.
But we are most excited about the food, of course!
In addition to Loin of Bacon and Cabbage, the authentic Irish dish of St. Patrick’s Day, both Raglan Road and Cookes of Dublin, located adjacent to the pub, will be offering lots of traditional Irish fare on the brunch, lunch, dinner, and bar menus.
Raglan Road will also offer two special dining events during the Mighty Festival. A special luncheon featuring a culinary demonstration will take place on Wednesday, March 12, at 1 p.m. The menu will feature dishes inspired by Chef Dundon’s cookbook and PBS series Modern Irish Food.
Guests can also enjoy a Signature Dinner, also hosted by Chef Dundon. The event takes place on Thursday, March 13, at 6:30 p.m. During the dinner, Chef Dundon will reveal his latest book, The Raglan Road Cookbook (which you can get in the gift shop at RR — I know; I want my copy, too)!
Anytime Master Chef Kevin Dundon is in the house, you know it’s going to be a good time! We can’t wait to see what the staff of Raglan Road have in store for their St. Patrick’s Week celebrations!
