Tir na nOg Irish Bar & Grill - MSG
Please note that open table reservations are for dining only. While we have bar tables tables available for drinks and bar food we do not accept open table reservations for just drinks.
Restaurant has moved and been renovated. I love the new vibe and decor, but the feeling of an "Irish Pub" is no longer in the equation. Food was very good, service was quick and the prices were reasonable. I would recommend highly before an event at MSG.
Very comfortable, love “Bernie” the bartender. Host very supportive in getting us our desired table.
Great meal as always
Met my sisters and cousin for lunch on a Saturday, party of four women. The food and service was excellent. The booth we were given was clean and comfortable. The only issue was the noise! Early on it was fine, but as the lunch continued through 2pm, the bar, which was adjacent to the booth, became extremely rowdy with sports fans watching football literally screaming at the top of their lungs. This disrupted our ability to have conversation at our table. The host should have realized that four women coming in for lunch would likely not appreciate being sat next to the sports bar on “game day”.
Tried and true favorite in this “difficult to find a decent place” part of town. Noisy but usually bearable.
Good food at a reasonable price for NYC. Excellent service (thanks, Sally). Restaurant is extremely loud around happy hour.
Thanks so much for stopping in! We'll definitely pass the message along to Sally.
Fantastic food, great music.
Thanks so much! We try our best to set the perfect vibe :)
First time at this Irish Pub and I absolutely loved it. The atmosphere, food, wine and staff are top class.
If you want the best go to the best
Perfect for before a concert and a drink afterwards.
Will return for sure.
Well thank you so much for stopping by, Elizabeth! We'd be glad to have you back.
Service and food were good. Would recommend and return
Thank you for spending some time with us! We'd be glad to have you again.
Well I wasn't sure what to expect. But I was delighted to meet a very accommodating host who kept our table even though our train was late. I am also recovering from foot surgery and just recently in a walking boot. The host was kind enough to get me a stool to put my foot up on. Host was a very pleasant young man.
The food was excellent - I had the mushroom ricotta flat bread. It tasted great. The place was very busy with lots of people enjoying the bar area.
Given the atmosphere and the location directly across from MSG/ Penn Station it is the perfect spot to stop before a concert.
Given I am genetically Irish myself I love a good pint of Guinness and I found it there.
Would go again in a minute!
Son visiting from Idaho. We had Long Islanders, Staten Islanders, Jerseyites, & Brooklyners meeting up and needed a place convenient to mass tran. This was one block from Penn. Big place, nice staff. Let us use a high top for appys while hanging out at bar. Bit pricey $9 beers, $100 sharable appy platter, but it was all about location, location, location. Worked for us.
Great pub adjacent to side entrance of Madison square garden!!! Great food and great service. Love the shepherds pie!! Will definitely be back!
Great place to get a bite when going to MSG. Good food and drinks! We let them know we had and event to attend and were pressed on time. They took excellent care of us and got us out in time for the show!
It's our pleasure to accommodate our MSG patrons! We hope to see you again soon.
Enjoyed it upstairs. Great beer list. Salad with pears was good & light.
For convenience to MSG it can't be beat, but for our taste it is just too loud and noisy. The food is excellent, we had the salmon entree and the burger.
Attentive servants and good food.Branzino was delicious
Good and service were excellent
Great food! Got the pear salad & fish tacos they were both excellent. Great place to stop before a MSG event.
We went here before the Billy Joel concert at Madison Square Garden. We were shown to our table upstairs right away, which was nice. But the restaurant was SO LOUD that we literally couldn't hear each other at a two-person table. The food was so-so. My fish and chips were just OK. I really liked the convenience of the restaurant next to MSG but would recommend finding another place unless you just want a very loud place to have a drink.
Love this place! Especially the Putine. Very accommodating to the reservation time as we were 25 minutes late stuck in traffic. A must try!
Staff was very accommodating. Food was great all around. Nice selection of draft beers, too.
Very close to MSG, literally directly across the street. Very convenient if you are attending an event. That being said, the service was incredibly slow. Fortunately we had allowed enough time. But each step of the way was dragged out. Ordering, getting drinks, getting food, getting the bill. The server was either overwhelmed or clueless. Not sure which. The food was fine. Nothing exciting, but certainly above average.
Food was outstanding, service was pleasant. Overall a great experience!
Loud due to soccer game. When we sat down we were told they was a 15 min delay in kitchen with a computer issue. They brought us each a drink on the house for waiting - food was served in 15 mins. Very nice food & selection. Great value.
Enjoyed getting together with friends. Good pub food.
my favorite Irish Pub. Great food, friendly staff, nice environment.
Would likely be great for beers with friends. Brunch food was pretty mediocre. Liked that it came with a complimentary mimosa though!
restaurant has good food, service ,
and ambiance and beauty
Food was delicious. We had the corned beef sandwich and fish & chips. Everything was fresh and tasty. Service was fine. It was a mid-afternoon lunch, so the atmosphere was relatively quiet. We enjoyed ourselves.
great place to go that's reasonable and convenient to Penn Station. Menu is limited, food was more than adequate to taste. Corned beef was really good. we were there in betw lunch and dinner so noise level was acceptable.
Delicious and reasonable food, across the street from MSG and a lively crowd...you can’t ask for more! We will be back. The only drawback was the restaurant was very loud. It just added to the experience for us, but if you’re looking for a quiet meal this is not the place for you.
Thanks for the review Kristen. Thursday night and high ceilings will do that. Glad you enjoyed your experience.
Great place! From the food to the service to the price; Everything was A+. Especially love the signs from Cork which is near and dear to my heart because my grandmother was originally from Kiskeam, Cork. Will definitely come again!!!
Glad you enjoyed it Theresa. Thank you for taking the time to review us.
Food was great. Nice spot to have dinner before going to an event at msg

Our favorite go to spot when in the city! Great food, drinks and awesome service.
Thanks Melissa, say hello next time you're in.
Great spot. Food was delicious and the volume was such that we could easily have a discussion
Glad to hear you enjoyed your Tir Na Nog experience Kate.
Celebrated a college graduation lunch there. Food was excellent, service was great. Decent beer selection. Reasonably priced for NYC esp near MSG. Would recommend.
