For over 15 years, Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant has been a guest favorite at Disney Springs and one of my favorite spots for an occasional #TreatYourself lunch. All their entrees are superb, but I can never get enough of starter Soda Bread and Guinness Reduction Sauce! It always feels like I’m stepping right into Ireland as soon as I enter the restaurant and that’s because most of the interior was actually built in Ireland and shipped to Orlando. (Cool, right?!) While you never need a reason to celebrate at Raglan Road, the annual Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival will be held March 15-17 this year and is a perfect time to visit! Here are a few highlights to expect this year:
Live Entertainment: You can always find amazing live music at Raglan Road, there will be even more jam-packed talent at the festival. The line-up includes but not limited to the Young Dubliners, one of Celtic rock’s hardest working bands and the festival headliner; Ben Gunnery, Irish music superstar and multi-instrumentalist; Briste, a female duo with a mix of country, folk and Irish traditional music; The Byrne Brothers, an Irish music family featuring Dempsey (age 9), Finn (age 12) and Luca (age 14) playing alongside their father Tommy; The Raglan Roots Coalition, an edgy house band known for its soul-rockin’ Celtic bluegrass funky beats and High Road, three talented musicians hailing from Ireland with a crowd-pleasing symphony of traditional Irish songs, among others.
