The downtown Raleigh Hibernian location on 311 Glenwood Ave, was established in May of 2000. It quickly became a staple in the Glenwood South district, a popular dining and nightlife destination in downtown Raleigh for over twelve years. Despite suffering from a devastating fire in December of 2012, we have recently opened our newly renovated doors and are thrilled to be back in the community. The redesigned pub proudly offers floor to ceiling windows that open onto Glenwood Avenue, multiple bars, a second floor patio and bar area overlooking downtown Raleigh.

Jeff, our server was fabulous! The booth were we sat was very cozy and comfortable! The Thanksgiving dinner was awesome!!! Being from Miami & visiting Raleigh for the holiday I felt the restaurant offered exactly what we wanted for dinner. We really enjoyed our visit to this restaurant very much.

The second floor has a nice view of the area. The large fire place is a nice touch.

Nice place in down town Raleigh. Wonderful old decorating features and a friendly place. Staff was a bit frantic for Thanksgiving, but the meal was very good. Turkey and all the sides - very good and filling.

We had gone to thanksgiving dinner several years ago here, it was great! This year, the food ( ham& turkey ) was dried out and the rest of food was cold. Terrible dinner! Will not be going back!

Our office went to Hibernian for lunch on a beautiful Friday. We were seated on the upstairs patio and had a wonderful meal, with an even better view.

We had a large booth set behind a curtain and a few people bailed at the last minute so we had 8 instead of 12. That wound up being a good thing because 12 would have been a tight fit! Hibernian is always a great atmosphere and the food is usually good. Unfortunately the service wasn’t so good. The waiter made it clear he wasn’t happy we went from 12 to 8 people even though our table definitely drank enough to make up for it. One person’s food came out wrong and he tried to tell the person that she ordered something different than she had (when we all heard her order what she was saying she ordered). It was difficult to get the waiter’s attention to order more drinks. Originally we planned to spend more time and more money drinking at Hibernian after we ate. Unfortunately, since we couldn’t easily get drinks on a regular basis, we took the rest of our evening elsewhere.

The bouncer was very nice and friendly. Our server appeared stressed and didn’t really check on the table and also got the bills mixed up. When an entry was inquired about, she said she didn’t know and didn’t try and find out. No fault of hers, but the restaurant was out of Corona, Heineken and Modela beer at 8:00. I’m glad that we didn’t have anyone visiting from out of town. Rooftop was nice and a great table.

Solid bar food, sandwich was very good. Meatball sub was a bit over-cheesy but ok. Looks of beers and friendly service.

We had an issue with reservation being for “outside” seating when we specifically requested “inside” seating. After several awkward moments, we were finally, reluctantly, given inside seating. Very noisy music playing. We had to ask several times for music to be turned down so we could hear each other at the table. Food finally delivered but was incorrect for two out of the six of us, and no food for one of us. We were all nearly finished before that person got their food.

We had a great time at the pub. The food was delicious and the decoration and atmosphere was awesome. The only complaint is that once we were brought our beer and food the server disappeared and wasn’t seen again until the check was brought. No water refill, we had no silverware so I had to find some myself, and we wanted desert but he brought the check so we decided to leave.

We came at a very busy time during a night where there was also a hockey game, but despite the heavy crowd we still had great service, our spot we requested in the notes was provided, and our food was delicious. They didn't have enough menus for our group, and it took a bit for us to have a dedicated server show up, but aside from that they did a fantastic job

Our favorite outdoor dining to celebrate the Canes!
Customer service always excellent!
Outdoor eating would be more pleasant without smoking.

There was a playoff hockey game in town so the place was packed! It was almost impossible to get a seat and getting service was even crazier. We left and went somewhere else.

We sat upstairs on the patio. Great views of Glenwood South and people watching. We had a few pints and the 3 dip appetizer with pita bread. Really good! Rachael waited on us and the service was spot on. My favorite spot on Glenwood

Four of us dined here on Friday of St Pattys Day weekend. However only one of us had an Irish meal. All of us were very satisfied with our food and our beer or wine. The ambiance was very pub-like so we felt as if we were over in the British Isles. It was an enjoyable dining experience.

Had a fairly early dinner of fish and chips which were very good. Parking was convenient behind the pub. The pub was beginning to fill up as we were leaving at 7:45 pm.
