Great pub , always enjoy going here , Irish breakfast rocks , great vibe any night of week . Fish and chips best n southeast !!!


Came in to eat but changed our mind after seeing layers of dust and dirt on most furnishings. Buffet food platters sitting in open warm air of restaurant, not very appetizing.

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/16/2013

new pub in North Raleigh food is really bad. They apparently make their money on the drinking crowd so keep food costs down by serving terrible food. Big disappointment. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/19/2013

I'm writing about the Hibernian in North Raleigh (couldn't locate it in Citysearch, maybe b/c it's not quite a month old). It's so very cool inside... mahogany wood, booths set in like little cozy coves, a library, details in architecture everywhere, little nook-knacks everywhere... A+ for ambiance. Friendly waiters (not hostess). However... they are like Nazi's when they seat you. I've been there four times, and each time, I wait at least 15 minutes, despite the fact that there are PLENTY of empty tables. They say their kitchen can't handle it. Ahhh... get a better cook? I'm *dying* to sit in the library, just once before I die, but I'm not allowed, for some reason. Makes me feel like I'm not good enough. Being older, they tried to seat me on this little round stool two feet from the ground, no back support; I would be in agony. Customers have no rights about where they're seated, even if you request an empty table. The seats dig into your hips. They ALWAYS seat me in the ""yellow"" room in back where it's so very loud. All this, IF (and big IF) you can find parking. I got the last parking space available on a Tuesday at 1:00!\r \r I love the outdoor seating but I am never allowed to sit there.\r \r Be prepare to wait a looooong time for your food. Bangers and mash taste plain, with mushy flavorless bangers/sausages. With the corned beef and cabbage, the thick corned beef was tough and grizzly, and the cabbage has a funny taste. The Reuben sandwich was excellent. I substitute coleslaw instead of sauerkraut, b/c sauerkraut makes me puke. Just sayin'... \r \r I miss Duffy's, where I went about 3 times a month, at least. (I'm having she-crab soup withdraws). Due to parking and seating and waits, I may come here 3 times a year. While it looks nice, it's just too uncomfortable. And LOUD!\r \r To their benefit, they're only a month old, so maybe they'll get their act together with the too-narrow chairs, acoustics, seating arrangements, and parking. more

the food is great, don't get me wrong, however the management is rude and underestimates their staff. I'd refer customers to Napper Tandy's in a heart beat! more

Best pub ! 4/7/2012

Fantastic!! 10/28/2010

This restaurant was excellent! The food was fantastic! Best Shepard's Pie I've had in a long time! And the raspberry bread pudding is a must order. The environment was pleasant with a quiet quaint homey sort of feel with nice low lighting and tv's here and there for the perfect mix of up to date bar but with some romantic touches! The wait staff was exceptional and I received a generous glass of wine. If you haven't been you should absolutely go! It's a good taste of some classic Irish food. more

You have to try this place 9/1/2010

This place is awesome. Its very authentic looking, very traditional. It really makes you think you could be in Ireland. The service is friendly and they have $10 meals including a salad. I had a huge steak for $10 - amazing. Then I sat outside on the patio for a few beers and people watched for a couple of hours. This place has everything. I'll be back. more

Great Irish Pub 8/30/2010

I have been going to the Hibernian Pub for about 6 years. I always thought it could not get any better but now they have this $10 special menu which has a salad and entree. This place is always fun and staff always great ""craic"" more

love it ! 5/19/2010

love it been going every time im in town ! fav food rueben or fish and chips . a true irish pub! Pros: solid for 10 years great rueben! Cons: parking sucks more


I never write reviews but I had to sign up to write one for this. Honestly the place has some great character and Irish charm but the service (Waitresses and managers) are horrible and could care less about your experience here. As a matter of fact the staff is like a frat. Nothing against frats I was in one but they treat you like you know nothing because you do not work there. If you ask for more water or beer or whatever it seems like they are bothered by getting it. There is a blonde girl there that could care less about freaking serving people. She is in the wrong industry!... Also the of hours waitresses stay around and party with the people that are working there. Not very attractive and are typically crude to others. If you want good atmosphere and good service head to the Saucer, Napper Tandys, or anywhere else because you are not going to get it here unless something changes... THIS PLACE BLOWS! sorry Pros: Nothing Cons: Service horrible, managers horrible, food horrible more

Go for the pub atmosphere.. not the food 3/15/2010

Looks like it could be a fun place.. for anything other than dining. Went for brunch-- ick--- dry pancake pucks, shriveled sausages, greasy (but tasty) shepherd's pie..... very small brunch selection.. very mediocre....deserving only of a paper plate. Pros: Friendly & great service Cons: the food more

Good food but not so great service 7/17/2009

Our food was okay. Not fantastic. I think our server forgot about us. She gave us our food and we didnt' see or hear from her again until we were completely finished, drinks empy, and waiting for the check. We both would have preferred a drink refill but by that time we just wanted to pay our bill and leave. We will try it again though to see if we can get better service the next time. Pros: Food Cons: Service more

Never again 4/21/2009

I have only been here twice, and that's two time to many, they were slow to wait on us and the management ended up acting like a douchbag to our group, Nappers now gets my business. Cons: Too many to list more

My favorite place to go in Raleigh! 3/5/2009

My husband and I have three small children and get a night out to ourselves about once a month. We always discuss where we're going to go and always end up at the Hibernian! Neither of us are drinkers but we love the atmosphere and most of all the food (the fish and chips are to die for)! It's also great to be able to show up at 6:00 on a Saturday night, be seated right away (almost always at our regular booth), get our food promptly, have a great meal, and be done in time to catch the early movie. Since the bar's not really jumping until later in the evening, it's relatively quiet around dinner time unless there's a big game on. Some reviewers have complained that the waitresses lack ""warmth"". Personally, I'm glad they're not bugging you all the time! They keep your drink filled, bring what you need, and leave you to enjoy it. I'd rather be talking to my husband, not the waitress! To the owners and staff, keep doing what you're doing and we'll keep coming back! We consider this OUR place! Pros: Great food! Prompt seating and service! Great atmosphere! Cons: Parking more
