Craíc - Irish for fun/enjoyment

BAILEY'S IRISH PUB

"The 'snug' was typically a small, very private room with access to the bar that had a frosted glass external window. A higher price was paid for beer in the snug and nobody could look in and see the drinkers. It was not only the wealthy visitors who would use these rooms. The snug was for patrons who preferred not to be seen in the public bar."

Join us in our “whiskey snug,” Bailey’s Irish Pub, which will be open all festival long (Friday night and Saturday).  

Bailey’s Irish Pub will have Irish whiskey drinks, Irish coffee, and interactive musical entertainment.  Once again, the Pub will feature Big Ginger made from 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey, ginger ale, and garnished with lemon and lime.  Gourmet Irish coffee will also be on hand; a variety of Bailey’s Irish Creams, 2 Gingers Whiskey, and coffee provided by Reve’ Coffee Roasters will be available for a wide choice of flavors.  We will also have shots of whiskey featured in the Whiskey Tasting. 

Interactive musical entertainment will include AN AWESOME LINE-UP OF BANDS IN A MORE INTIMATE SETTING taking your Irish requests.  Main stage musicians will be stopping by to sharpen up or wind down with us.  We may even be privy to some sing-a-long sea chanties with a merry band of pirates.

Whiskey Tasting - Whether you are a first time whiskey drinker or an experienced connoisseur, come to our snug for authentic Irish whiskey tastings led by a certified expert provided by Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits. Tastings will be on Saturday at 1:15 - 2:00 and 4:00 - 4:45.  Tickets are purchased in advance, on the grounds, for $20 per person and will be on a first come, first serve basis.

Bailey’s Irish Pub will be stop #1 for the Green Mile Pub Crawl. Participants will gather here at 9 a.m. to practice their songs and start the pub crawl in style.
