Get ready to celebrate the unofficial start to summer when Blarney Island opens for the 2023 season this weekend.

If you are in search for a one-of-a-kind location with fun and entertainment, Blarney Island is waiting for you a mile offshore in Antioch, Illinois! It's located on the beautiful Chain O’Lakes, the busiest inland waterway in the country. Enjoy live music, DJ's and a variety of other performances while having some drinks and dancing the night away. So, take your boat, or jump on the Blarney Shuttle Boat, which departs from the Port of Blarney and, in just a few short minutes, you will be “living on Island time.” The island will welcome guests for their 2023 season starting on May 20.
