Disney Trip Part 6: Irish Night!

Rob, Jeff, Tom, Chris
     This is the 6th blog about our 2 day trip to Disney World during the last week of Feb. This blog focuses on an an "Irish Night."  It included a fun dinner in a cool Irish Pub called "Ragland Road" that you may not know about - but you should!
 We were joined by our friend Chris, which made the evening more special.   
   RAGLAND ROAD PUB - This great authentic Irish Pub is located in Downtown Disney, and owned by folks from Ireland.

   LIVE PERFORMANCES OFTEN - There's also live performances during dinner that features Irish folk dancers and a great three-man Irish band called Drops of Green (who were really great). Their members: Lee Campion Ross Hennessy James Ring Barry Kavanagh (

   The food is great, and also authentically Irish. You can find out more here:

Watching the dancers
Here's what USA Today said about this fun place: With live music on two different stages and Irish dancers every night of the week, Raglan Road really packs in the entertainment. And there's plenty of good food and cold drink with which to enjoy it. Monday through Sunday you can stomp, clomp and kick up your heels (or, you know, just watch) with Raglan's talented dance troupe from 5 -10 p.m. Performances run every hour on the hour. On Sundays, the Rollicking Raglan Brunch Irish Dance Show fills in the morning/midday slot (noon to 4 p.m.) and the Celtic revelry continues through to 10. A number of bands grace the main and patio stages -- the latter is a lovely place for an al fresco pint -- between 7:30 p.m. and 1:30 a.m. For brunch, the music starts up at noon. (4079380300)

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
