Ironforge is a large city in a hollow mountain, one that is inspired greatly by the home of the Dwarves in the Lord of the Rings films and stories. The entrance to the city is through an entrance in the wall with a path from below leading up to it.
Like other cities, it is possible to fly inside the city except in certain places which can be classed as beings a building.
After the Gnomes were ejected from Gnomeregan, their ancestral home, they found a new home in Ironforge. They have their own section of the city known as Tinker Town, located in the eastern side of the city.
Winterveil festival which occurs round Christmas time is the Azerothian equivelent to Christmas. When the festival is active, a tree appears in the main area by the entrance and a bearded Father Christmas like characters sits by the tree. On Christmas Day, all the alliance players will visit the tree to open their presents. The presents aren't spectacular, no mounts or such, just a toy or some sort.
Brewfest is inspired by Oktoberfest drinking festival in Germany. The main festivities do not occur in Ironforge but just outside the city and down a path to the bottom. Amongst the fun is to defend the festival against the Dark Iron Dwarves and to race a ram to collect and drop off beer.
In the Warcraft movie, in addition to Stormwind, Ironforge got seen. The hero Anduin Lothar visits the main forge in the city and is examining a gun when a message is received saying that King Llane Wrynn wants him back because of an attack.
Apart from Stormwind, Ironforge is the only other city that gets a mention of in the film. Goldshire is shown in the film but it is only a small town and nothing compared to the likes of Ironforge and Stormwind.
Under the city is a large catacomb area, not been able to discover the purpose, maybe in the future we might be able to see. The Catacomb area can be accessed from an entrance near to where the Dwarven leader can be found.
