Irish Merriment and Dance on Tap at Raglan Road at Downtown Disney

Being an Irish gal, one of my favorite days is just around the corner – St. Patty’s Day. So I was psyched to see that Raglan Road is hosting a pre-party to St. Patrick’s Day.

On Sunday, March 13, Raglan Road will host a ceili, which is a fancy way to say a big Irish party with music and dance. It is actually one of Ireland’s oldest traditions and will showcase a variety of step dances like the popular Riverdance, the Walls of Limerick, the Waves of Troy and more. The ceili dances are typically danced to Irish instruments such as the Irish hand drum or harp. The fun starts at 2 p.m. at Downtown Disney and families are welcome.

Went to Ragland Road for lunch for the first time back in October. One of the best experiences in both dining & service I enjoyed throughout my time at Disney World! Next time I am hoping to catch some live entertainment!

Haha I actually know these girls that are in the picture! I’m an Irish Dancer myself and the one with the brown hair (I won’t give names) is in my competition! These are great dancers and you should really see it if you get a chance :)
