I'm hoping to see my 1st ever Weston Irish Fest..... but no rooms available for my clan!! Yikes!! How disappointing. Any suggestions from you locals on where I might check for accommodations.

kristin and jill: you'll be pleasantly surprised -- last year was my fiance and my first irish fest and it was AWESOME.

RE: accommodations: the B&Bs in town fill up 6-8 months in advance of the festival... you might try some hotels in the area along I29, but you'll need a DD-can't do irish fest without lots of locally crafted beer! another option would be to camp in one of the state parks nearby if you're into camping. they are beautiful parks! good luck!

There is a van running from the Comfort Inn in Platte City. They will take other passengers.

What a wonderful event! It was our first Weston Irish fest and it was cold... but so worth it.
