Irish Fest

Milwaukee’s Irish Fest is the largest of the ethnic festivals held at the Summerfest grounds (Henry Maier Festival Park) and holds claim to the largest celebration of Irish Culture in the world. This year Irish Fest takes place Thursday, August 16th and runs through Sunday, August 29th.

County Clare is offering FREE Shuttle service to and from Irish Fest. The shuttle will drop-off and pick up about every 1/2 hour at the south gate. Shuttle riders can enter a RAFFLE for a night stay at one of our INNS! Join us for authentic Irish/American fare and a pint before and/or after the Fest. Our AFTER PARTY will feature Irish music on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings starting at 10 pm.

To accommodate the quickest table seating, we will NOT be accepting restaurant reservations during Irish Fest. We apologize for the inconvenience.
