Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant will host the 10th annual Great Irish Hooley boutique music festival Labor Day weekend, September 2 through September 5.
The Great Irish Hooley is one of my FAVORITE events at Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant because it is filled with amazing Irish bands performing traditional Irish tunes, Celt grass, folk, and blues.
This mix of music will have you dancing between bites!
This year’s Great Irish Hooley features a first-rate lineup of luminaries from the traditional Irish music world, including:
- Téada – This leading Irish traditional band will headline the Hooley lineup. Dubbed “invigorating” by the Washington Post, the band just released their sixth album. Don’t miss them!
- One for the Foxes – An exciting new transatlantic trio merging backgrounds in Irish and American folk music for an eclectic vibe.
- Celtic Croí (Heart) – Talented trio from Dublin, Belfast, and Glasgow pump up the Hooley volume.
- Gobhán – Dynamic duo from County Down, Ireland, playing guitar, fiddle, and vocals.
When you hear the word “Hooley,” you know to expect a good time!
It’s a Gaelic term for a lively party with music, entertainment, and fun for everyone in the family.
When the spirit moves you, be ready to kick up your Hooley heels -the talented Raglan Road Irish Dancers will lead guests through a lively Ceili. The Ceili step dances, dating back to the Celts and Druids who inhabited Ireland in the 1500s, are usually the main event of local celebrations in Irish and Celtic communities.
It all begins Friday afternoon, Sept. 2, and continues through late-night Monday, Labor Day. Celtic face painting is complimentary, and the pub will feature new whiskeys and a special Hooley brew, the De Fesht, that brings an Oktoberfest-like spirit to the late-summer festivities.
The best part is that there’s no cover charge to join the Raglan Road fun featuring top Irish bands with high-voltage entertainment!!!
In addition to the pub’s All-Day Menu, the delicious Rollicking Raglan Brunch will be served throughout the weekend, including Labor Day Monday, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
