New Hibernian Pub opening soon in north Raleigh

Posted January 23, 2013

— The owner of downtown Raleigh's Hibernian Pub, which was destroyed by fire nearly one month ago, is planning to open the doors soon of a new version of the beloved bar.

In a posting on the Facebook page for Hibernian Pub North Raleigh, the bar says it hopes to open within the next three to six weeks at 8021 Falls of Neuse Road.

There's still no word on when owner Niall Hanley plans to rebuild the Hibernian in Glenwood South. It was destroyed Dec. 27 by a grease fire.

Hanley also runs a third Hibernian on Kildaire Farm Road in Cary.

    never had food at Hibernian but they will have a hard time beating the food at Piper's.

    ah, alliteration. an attempt at cleverness by those who aren't very capable of it. usually performed by the same people who believe that spelling a word backwards creates an unbreakable code.

    This was NOT a great bar. Just "A" bar in the district. Just because it burned down does not make it a "GREAT" bar. Actually kind of a bore and not a must go to place in the area. Nothing more than a change of pace. Will not be missed in a months time.

    That'll give places like Piper's Tavern some competition.

    It may be a culture thing, but it's the ugliest building I've ever seen

    "Beloved" simply works in the 'journalistic style,' while it was superfluous at best.

    It's fashionable to match up words beginning with same letters, syllables, etc. because it's "quippy." Most of their headlines are like that whenever possible.
