St. Patricks Day Tours

March 13 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Celebrate this St. Patrick’s Day here at Allaire Village!
James P. Allaire’s Howell Works of 1836 consisted of workers from many ethnic backgrounds, including people from Ireland who likely made up the majority of the population. Migrating down to New Jersey from New York, the Irish workers at the Howell Iron Works primarily served as molders for the furnace operation, but also were blacksmiths, farmers, and other skilled furnace workers. They brought with them their customs and traditions as well as their religion, which was, in some cases, Catholic.
One of the most famous Irishmen to have lived in the Howell Iron Works was John Roach. Having started his career at the Howell Iron Works as a common laborer, he eventually went on to build the largest and most productive shipbuilding empire in the United States!
Take a 90 minute guided tour of the village and experience the history and culture of Ireland. A period dressed interpreter will escort you to all of our historic buildings and trade shops where villagers are waiting to welcome you and demonstrate traditional Irish cooking, folklore and music! Listen to the Ballycastle Band perform a variety of traditional Irish songs in our historic Chapel, smell the delicious Irish meals and treats prepared by our talented hearth cooks, learn about the history of the holiday and much more! Purchase your tickets before they sell out!
