The 2015 Dublin Irish Festival likely set records.

Beautiful weather favored the 2015 Dublin Irish Festival in Coffman Park from July 31 through Aug. 2 and crowds flocked to the event.

Although attendance at the festival didn't quite top the record set in 2013, revenue is expected to best previous years.

Alison LeRoy, Dublin events manager, said the Irish Festival this year saw close to 103,000 people.

In 2013, the festival welcomed a record-setting crowd of 104,000.

"Saturday was our largest day ever with just over (51,000) people at the festival," Leroy said of the 2015 event.

Friday, July 31, about 25,000 people attended the festival and 26,000 came on Sunday, Aug. 2.

Last year, the Dublin Irish Festival saw more than 98,000 attendees, according to the 2014 Dublin Irish Festival annual report.

As for revenue at the 2015 Dublin Irish Festival, LeRoy said she expects it to set records.

"I can tell you revenues and expenses are still coming in, but we do know that we had a record revenue year," Leroy said.

"For the first time ever our total revenue (will) be over $2 million.

"We expect to be 8 to 10 percent over last year's revenue which was the previous record."

In 2014, the Irish festival took in $1.96 million in revenue, up from $1.93 million in 2013.

According to the previous festival report, beverages are the highest revenue-generating item at the event.

The 2016 Dublin Irish Festival is set for Aug. 5-7.
