The Raglan Road Mighty St. Patrick’s Day Festival Is Soon!

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and the now legendary Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival is back this year from March 11-17 at Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant in Disney Springs.

This is the biggest St Paddy's party in Orlando with the very best of Irish talent, a large variety of beers and cocktails, classic Irish fare and more.

If you’ve been before, you know the festival is a can’t-miss experience. And if you haven’t been, make plans to be there!

Irish Fare & Brews

New on the menu this year is a locally crafted seltzer, called “So Berry Les.” The name is a special tribute to John Cooke’s (co-owner of Raglan Road Pub and Cooke’s of Dublin) father Les, who found himself in the Guinness Book of World Records for setting a strawberry-buying record in 1977.

So Berry Les was crafted in collaboration with Crooked Can Brewing Co. in Winter Garden, Florida, and is a light and refreshing hard seltzer infused with local Florida strawberry and Key Lime juice. I don’t know about you, but I’m berry excited to try this new brew! If seltzer isn’t your thing, never fear, there are several Irish beer flights and, of course, the classic Guinness, available to whet your whistle.

Oh, and you cant visit Raglan Road without enjoying their famous fresh-caught fish with chips! This is a weekly trip for us, and we always order our fish & chips to go at the Cooke’s of Dublin counter, and then enjoy watching the Springs go by from the outside seating area.

Or you could choose from a tasty selection of authentic Irish dishes like the Shepherd’s to Die for Pie and Executive Chef Mark O’Neill’s popular plant-based pie, This Shepherd Went Vegan. All of which pair beautifully with their wide range of Irish whiskeys, local craft beers and hand-crafted cocktails.

Live Entertainment

If you’ve ever walked by Raglan Road and heard the music floating through the open doors, you know they know how to provide an amazing entertainment lineup. And for the festival this year, they are flying in some of the top bands from Ireland including Jig Jam, known for their captivating brand of CeltGrass; the Lisa Canny Band, blending pop and hip-hop with traditional Irish rhythm; Emerald Shore, vibrant trad music – just to name a few.

Of course, the fan-favorite Raglan Road Irish Dancers will also be performing throughout the festival and are ready to teach you a few dance steps!

Raglan Road co-owner John Cooke said: “Our imported Irish talent lineup is exceptional—these entertainers are not seen nor heard in any other location in the U.S. on St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone can enjoy this expanded festival, which includes gift competitions and loads of giveaways. The Mighty Festival remains the best Irish hospitality experience in America.”

“Whether this is your first, or one of many St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, we encourage you to join us this year for The Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival. You’ll be glad you did."

And the fun doesn’t stop there! There will also be a face painter, giveaways, merchandise at the Shop for Ireland boutique and more.

On St Patrick's Day, March 17, Raglan Road will open at 10 a.m., seating guests on a first-come, first-served basis, with a $20 cover charge for guests 18 and older.

For those planning to celebrate during the other festival dates from March 11-16, reservations are encouraged and can be made through the My Disney Experience app or by calling 407-938-0300.
