Irish music: It’s not just for St. Patrick’s Day! Disney Springs’ Raglan Road goes ham – er – corned beef? – on the fiddles and brogues every Labor Day weekend for the Great Irish Hooley. With live performances from the likes of JigJam, the Byrne Brothers and Lisa Canny, the weekend’s full of authentic Irish entertainment. Throw in step-dancing and a menu full of fancy Emerald Isle eats and drinks and you’ll be forgiven for telling everyone around you how Irish you are.
