As the Disney Parks Blog recently shared, the Disney Springs ‘ resident Irish pub and restaurant, Raglan Road is the perfect place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, and during the Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival, everything will be kicked up a notch with Irish beers and cocktails, classic Irish eats, live performances and more.

New brews on this year’s menu include a locally crafted seltzer called, “So Berry Les,” named for Les, the father of John Cooke (co-owner of Raglan Road and the adjacent Cooke’s of Dublin.) Les was featured in the Guinness Book of World Records in 1977 for setting the strawberry-buying record, so the new seltzer is appropriately named!

So Berry Les offers a light and refreshing take on hard seltzer, and was sourced locally as it was crafted by Crooked Can Brewing Co., nearby Walt Disney World in Winter Garden, Florida. In addition to the new seltzer, this year’s festival will include Raglan Road’s full beer and cocktail menu, plus Irish beer flights and Guinness.

The festival will be fully stocked with favorite Irish food items, too, including fresh-caught fish and chips, Shepherd’s to Die for Pie, and a new “The Shepherd Went Vegan” plant-based take on the classic dish created by Executive Chef Mark O’Neill.

It wouldn’t be a St. Patrick’s Day celebration without live music with everything from traditional Irish ballads to upbeat tunes featuring the Raglan Road Dancers, and more. During this year’s festival Raglan Road has a stellar lineup of Irish bands like Jig Jam, who perform their own unique brand of CeltGrass, the Lisa Canny Band, who mix pop and hip-hop with traditional Irish beats, and the trad music of Emerald Shore, alongside fan-favorite Raglan Road Irish Dancers will be performing throughout the festival.

The festival fun for Guests continues all week long with giveaways onsite, unique merchandise available at the Shop for Ireland boutique, a face painter, and more. Be sure to check ahead of your visit for complete details. On St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2022, seating at Raglan Road will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis with a $20 cover for those 18 and over.
