Tir na nOg
Cead Mile Failte: Welcome to Tir na nOg Irish Pub & Restaurant
We’ve been pulling pints & entertaining folks since 1997 when we opened as the first Irish pub in downtown Raleigh.
As in Ireland, music is an important part of our atmosphere. We have hosted several national and international legends such as, The Dublin City Ramblers, Albannach, Seven Nations, Battlefield Band, Old Blind Dogs, Teada, Grada. The Prodigals, and many more. We offer traditional Irish music every Friday night at 7pm and Irish jam sessions every Sunday. Each month we also host Irish dancing from local Irish dance schools.
The heart beat of any Irish Home centers around the kitchen. Our executive chef Aaron Vaughen has worked very hard to reinvent and reinterpret Irish food. Coming from strong fine dining backgrounds, Aaron has taken traditional Irish dishes and infused his own influence. Using produce from local farmers markets, and bread from local bakeries, we work hard to ensure that your meals are always fresh and flavorful.
At Tir Na nOg we believe in keeping the traditions of Ireland alive in all we do, from the music, to the menu, to the very saving of the earth we love. Ireland, for all she offers, is most noted for her 40 shades of green and here at Tir na nOg we strive to embody the green philosophy. We take pride in the fact that we compost food waste, shop at local food markets, and use energy and water efficient machines.
