It's Irish Weekend!



    It's Irish Weekend!
    The Berghoff gets into the spirit with a traditional bagpipe group that will play live in the bar starting at 6 p.m. while you munch on corned beef and Irish stew.

    Officially, it’s called Irish Fall Festival, but in Philly and South Jersey, it’s known simply as Irish Weekend.

    The annual event is taking over the shore starting on Thursday, Sept. 23, with a golf tournament at the Avalon Golf Club in the wee hours of the morning.

    The day continues with drinking, er, we mean music and live Irish music.

    On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, buy all kinds of Irish goodies from the merchants lining Olde New Jersey Ave. in Wildwood, dance to Irish tunes and party.

    The weekend will also include a 5K, a mass and a parade, but come on, you know you’re going for the drinking.

    Where you stay is up to you, but we suggest you book a room fast. Here's a little help in your search.
