The Great Irish Hooley

August 12, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Great Irish Hooley

The Great Irish Hooley

Bring on the craic! Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant will host the 10th annual Great Irish Hooley boutique music festival Labor Day weekend beginning Sept. 2 and continuing through Sept. 5.

Pub guests will want to dance and sing along to non-stop traditional Irish tunes, Celt grass, folk, and blues performed by top Irish bands slated to perform.  Taking the stage will be a first-rate lineup of luminaries from the traditional Irish music world:

  1. 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!
  2. One for the Foxes – Exciting new transatlantic trio merging backgrounds in Irish and American folk music for an eclectic vibe.
  3. Celtic Croí (Heart) – Talented trio from Dublin, Belfast, and Glasgow pump up the Hooley volume.
  4. 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. There’s no cover charge to join the Raglan Road fun featuring top Irish bands with high-voltage entertainment. When the spirit moves you, be ready to kick up your Hooley heels — our 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 a 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. 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.
