Celebrity chef Kevin Dundon is no longer the chef partner of Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant at Disney Springs, according to a news release. His family and Dunbrody House, a small luxury hotel in Wexford, Ireland owned by Dundon and his wife, Catherine, played into his decision to step down. Dundon said increasing commitments played into his final decision.
“I depart with a great sense of pride and wish Raglan Road continued success,” Dundon said in the news release.
Raglan Road Irish Pub opened in then Downtown Disney in 2005. The restaurant was managed by Dundon and partners Paul Nolan and John Cooke. The Disney Springs restaurant is well-known for its contemporary take on Irish cuisine — and its festive atmosphere, thanks to plenty of live entertainment including Irish dancers and bands.
Raglan Road executive chef Heberto Segura will continue to run the pub’s kitchen.
“Raglan Road has had a terrific run with Chef Dundon, and we wish him well in his endeavors,” said Raglan Road co-founder and partner, Paul Nolan.
Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant is located at Disney Springs in the Walt Disney World Resort, 1640 E. Buena Vista Drive in Lake Buena Vista. For more information, visit raglanroad.com or call 407-938-0300.
