The mightiest of mighty Irish festivals, Raglan Road’s Mighty Festival kicks off on Thursday March 16 running thru Sunday, March 19.

Throw in (tho not literally please) a troupe of Irish Dancers with more talent in their big toes than most possess in their lifetime and you have the ingredients for an fun, feisty and fantabulous Festival. A Mighty festival. The only Road to the best of Irish is Raglan Road. With sublime Irish food, an enormous range of craft beers and cocktails, a dedicated Irish store, face painting and much much more.
