Irish Hooley Music Festival

August 26th – 27th

Sláinte! It’s Hooley time in Dubuque again. The mission of the Irish Hooley is to promote Irish/Celtic music and culture in Dubuque throughout the year. For generations, the highlight of Irish social life was the Hooley. Music, dance, song, good conversation and merriment flowed freely.

Caroline’s Restaurant will be serving Walking Shephard’s Pie, Irish Nachos, and Bread Pudding at the festival.  We are also offering a number of extra perks for festival attendees throughout the weekend in the restaurant:

Visit Caroline’s on Friday or Saturday, show your Irish Hooley bracelet, and receive a complimentary Guinness Mousse dessert.

Continue the party at the Riverboat Lounge on Friday night after the show! With your Irish Hooley bracelet, you can purchase 1/2 priced Jameson drinks from 10:30 until midnight!

Head to Caroline’s Restaurant for your recovery breakfast on Sunday morning, show your Irish Hooley bracelet, and receive $2 off the breakfast buffet OR enjoy free coffee or juice with the purchase of an entrée (must be $7 or more).
