Join Us Each New Year’s Eve for
Our Annual Irish NYE Party

Each New Year’s Eve, we host a fun and wonderful party to kick off the new year “Irish style.” We have an Irish band and session players, Irish step dancers, and the famous Michael Collins bagpipe band. We toast the new year at 5:00 pm MST (7:00 pm EST) because that is when it turns New Year’s Day in Dublin, Ireland.
