Noah Webster House Hosting ‘A Taste of Ireland’ Tavern Night

Live music, tavern games, and a traditional Irish feast will highlight Tavern Night at the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society.


On March 17, 2023, the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society invites the public to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the museum with a traditional dinner, drinks, and live music. Good food, entertainment, and a unique night out await all who attend.

Guests will enjoy a delicious meal featuring homemade Irish stew from a secret family recipe. Sorry, Grandma does not let us share the ingredients!

Dinner will also include Irish soda bread and butter, sides, and dessert. The museum is pleased to feature live music by Thomas Hooker Hanford, performing traditional songs that combine music and storytelling.

At the end of the evening, guests will be invited to play historic tavern games such as Skittles, Captain’s Mistress, and Shove Ha’penny in the lantern-lit circa 1720s birthplace of Noah Webster.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. to preview tavern games, and dinner is at 6 p.m. Please indicate your preference for the gallery or the changing exhibit space. The gallery is the museum’s large event space and offers a front-row seat for the entertainment. The changing exhibit space is smaller and more intimate. If you would like easier conversation, this is the place for you. Guests will be able to move to the gallery for the live music or remain in the exhibit space to talk with friends.

Tickets for the event are on sale now at noahwebster.yapsody.com for $60 per person, $55 for museum members. Advance registration is required. This event sells out, so please purchase early. The price includes dinner, a complimentary drink (beer or wine), live entertainment, and tavern games. Additional beer and wine will be available for purchase.
