Save the Dates for the 2015 Irish Hooley Music Festival at Dubuque Star Brewery!

The Irish Hooley in the Alliant Amphitheater

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 as described in the Percy French song, “There’s a Hooley on in Hannigan’s House Tonight.”

We hope you’ll join us to celebrate our Irish heritage at the Irish Hooley Music Festival August 20-21-22, 2015, with a kick-off on Thursday at the Hooley Unplugged concert at the Mississippi Moon Bar and then on Friday/Saturday, August 21 & 22 at the Dubuque Star Brewery, Port of Dubuque, Iowa. May the luck of the Irish be with you.

Countdown to the Irish Hooley!
