Not often that four totally different persons can order different meals and everyone enjoyed what they were served. The cottage pie, fish and chips, Guinness stew, were all winners. Had a fun time.

I was a little worried when we got there at 630 on a weekend and it was empty, but it filled up quickly. Wings were very good. Family liked there food too and the waitress was pleasant. I would go back again someday.

We had 40 people looking to dine together. We couldn't find anyone to even take our reservation. We came in off the "street" (Church Street) and they accommodated us AND the food was excellent!

Rí Rá is located in an historic bank building, designed by Boston based Harper & West, that was completed in 1931. The pub opened for the first time in March 1999, and was extended in 2002 with the addition of the Library area. In February 2012, The Whiskey Room opened its doors. As you enter Rí Rá, you can imagine yourself walking through a door that leads you across the pond to experience the best pubs of Ireland. The pub interiors were salvaged and restored in Ireland prior to being shipped to Vermont. We are proud to showcase a unique and genuine Irish pub in the heart of Burlington.
