There is a tradition in Ireland which says when someone comes to your home you always welcome them with open arms and

that is how you’ll feel when you visit the Irish Pavilion, where there are no strangers, only friends you haven’t met yet.

In Ireland, the highlights of any gathering are good food and great entertainment.
Do you know the story of the Giant’s Causeway or The Book of Kells?

Did you know the Titanic was built in Belfast in one of the greatest shipyards of the day? Come by our display area to learn about these and other great Irish legends!

Your visit must include a trip to our kitchen where you’ll find traditional Irish fare – Irish stew, potato soup, whiskey cake and much more.

There’s something for the whole family to enjoy. While you’re enjoying the food, sit back and watch some of the great entertainment at the Irish Pavilion. Watch the toe tapping moves of the Irish dancers or sing along with one of the bands as they play traditional and Ireland inspired music. You won’t be able to stop yourself from having a great time!
Before you leave be sure to stop by our Boutique where you’ll be able to find a unique souvenir. Whether it’s jewelry or at treat for the kids, you’ll find something to take home as a reminder of your visit to the Irish Pavilion at Folkfest.
