It was not as big as two years ago and there was only one music stage vs several in the past.

The music was great they had 2 bands performing one sounded like U2 and they even sang some of their songs. They had a Irish folk band and then bagpipes but that's where great ENDED. They had just a few vendors but with still fewer of them selling...continued

It was an OK event. Fairly small and lightly attended, although I think the upcoming weekend will be a bigger deal. The ticket offer we purchased was outstanding, however, and Goldstar--as usual--delivered as promised. The venue is cleverly...continued

I'll give it two stars for very cold beer, nothing else. Very disappointing. Very small venue. Not much going on . Few booths selling "kiss me I'm Irish" shirts. Two very good bands playing. But nothing else. No dancers. No heritage stuff....continued

Very small, not much to do, basically just eating, drinking, and listening to music. There are bands on two stages but not at all times.

This was a small Irish festival. I enjoyed the Irish dancers, and bands were great.

Plenty of attractions for kids, food was delicious and plenty of spots to get a drink. Live music and shops. Nice way to spend a weekend

Show was so small you could walk through in about 15 minutes. This is not the same Irish Fair from years past. At least the tickets were complimentary.

like 8 vendors in the whole thing, one stage of entertainment, very little food. Half the vendors weren't even Irish. No dogs or herding. We were there half an hour and the parking was ridiculous, the $5 admission was a ripoff for what we got. Awful.

The fair was very small. There wasn't much faire, the same bands played the entire day and was not very traditional. Highland Games are a much better dollar and time spent.

Wow was this TERRIBLE!!! Apparently the fairplex has taken over this event and their goal is to turn it into another octoberfest. There was very little Irish to be found and the entire "fest" took up one small building and a small courtyard. I...continued
