There are lot of things to see and do while you explore the Peoria Irish Fest, and you’re bound to work up a strong appetite and a powerful thirst!
Food vendors are never more than a few steps away from wherever you may be. Not quite satisfied with the nearby options? Keep walking! Our vendors offer a tempting variety of delicious options.
Five fantastic pubs, scattered across the grounds, boast their own distinct atmosphere and personality and are staffed by volunteers who take great pride in their work. Select from a mouth-watering variety of beers, ciders, spirits, and soft drinks at each location. Dann Haney and KC Murphy work together as a team throughout the year to bring the pubs to life.
This year we have expanded our schedule for the ever-popular Irish Whiskey tastings, hosted by our very own Eric Nevitt. Classes will be held in the Tasting Room, located on the third floor of the Gateway Building. Visit one of our many pubs to learn how to purchase a ticket for these popular events!
Another new attraction to watch for is our Tart on a Cart! If you’re lucky, you may spot her riding around the grounds on a custom-built contraption selling samples of whiskey, merchandise, and providing entertainment for those who find her!
Food and drink prices will be posted at each location.
If you like our pubs, you’ll love our selection of commemorative T-shirts, available at the Merchandise Tent.
