Bridie McKenna's opened to the public in January 2008 after years of planning and hard work. The Irish woman Bridie McKenna had a reputation for friendliness, and for always having an open door to welcome family and friends into her home. Her image is etched on our Front Door glass and is a… constant reminder to the owners and staff to treat their patrons with the warmth and hospitality that she was renowned for. The words above the main door "Slan Abhaile" is a "phrase" used commonly in Ireland to wish friends "safe home" after their visit.
As in Ireland, Bridie McKenna's is a Community Pub or "Public House". The building was designed in Ireland and reflects the storefronts, colours and character found on any town or village street. Come join us for award-winning food, personal service, and a celebration of friendship. Bridie McKenna's is a truly authentic Irish Pub, and a place where customers will experience "the friendliest welcome on the North Shore." Cheers!Continued
