American
A piece of Ireland in the heart of midtown Manhattan. Tir na nOg offers the warmth of an Irish pub with a new American menu. The bar boasts 22 draft beers from Ireland, Belgium, England and American craft breweries. A small but concise wine list has something for all palates and our extensive Scotch and Irish Whisky list provides a perfect ending to your meal. Service is friendly, efficient and unobtrusive with a few Irish employees always willing to tell a story.
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.

Great place to meet for a drink or lunch/dinner before any event at The Garden or before you catch a train in Penn Station. Two minute walk to The Garden. Service is very friendly & quick. Food is good hot pub food. Fish & Chips, Burgers etc are all excellent. Portions are very generous. Recommended for sure.

I hadn't been to the MSG location in years. The food was still great, but the location is loud. We were sat upstairs and shortly after we arrived a very large party arrived. They never sat down and were very loud. It made having dinner and trying to talk almost impossible. The server apologized and we were finally moved to a table downstairs. If you know you are going to have a situation like this, you shouldn't seat other people in the area. They traded customer satisfaction for profit, and that is just unacceptable in any service industry. It's a fine line, but it made our evening uncomfortable. Doubtful that I will dine here again.

Great Irish Pub across from MSG.
Had a great seat by the window overlooking the Garden
Food was very good - fish and chips were awesome!
Good, lively atmosphere but service was a bit slow likely due to the volume of people there...

Really great for pre-event dinner/cocktails. Excellent service, interesting menu for beer, cocktails and dining. Tuna wonton nacho appetizer was very nice. Shepherds Pie was very good - bit heavy on the potato but very tasty. Nice ambiance and so so convenient to MSG for events.

I was disappointed which I usually am not with an Irish Pub. I ordered a Brisket Sandwich and Brisket is always cooked to the point of extreme tenderness and falling apart. This meat was very tough and chewy.
However, the most disappointing thing was that as we were drinking our coffee, the waiter came over and said we would have to leave soon because they had another reservation for that table. There were other tables clearing out, and we were going to be leaving soon anyway, but I found it to be very rude to be asked to leave the table. I will not visit this establishment again and do not recommend it either.

So.....we go to an Irish Bar. I order Corned Beef on Rye...…….except they have no Rye at 1 pm on SuperBowl Sunday. Not good. The sandwich comes on 7 Grain Bread......ok, but they bring no Mustard to the table and very little on the Sandwich. Ok......so I will ask the waitstaff for some, except they are no where to be found.

Its a nice place...….but very poorly managed and operated.

I made a mistake - I actually thought Tir na Nog was a different place when I booked the pre-hockey reservations. It sounds like a really old-fashioned, darkwood pub, but instead it's a brighhtly-lit, diner-like setting with a bar on the left, booths on the right, and not an ounce of atmosphere anywhere.

If you're in a hurry and need a burger and a beer before an MSG event, knock yourself out. If, like me, you are looking for something a little more authentic, keep looking.

The acoustics are such that even though the place wasn't crowded, you had to shout in the booths in order to be heard. Service was OK, food meh.

The place is very loud. We arrived 13 minutes late and were told that they had cancelled our reservation, even though the website says a 15 minute grace period. After about 10 minutes they were able to find a table for us. The food was ok and service was good, but we won’t be going back.

We went there as a family after the Cirque de Soliel show b/c we didn't want to move the car and they had a kids menu:) It was brunch time and the menu was good and varied. One of the hamburgers was cooked a bit less than he would of liked. The egg dish one of us had was good and the blackened chicken salad was also good. We were pleasantly surprised for a place so close to MSG:) Would def go there again.
