Owner description: Beautiful and genuine irish bar in the heart of Århus City. We boast a massive range of beers, ales, ciders, whiskys, rums, tequilas, cognacs and champagne in house. We offer over 30 different types of beers and ciders and over 40 (and still growing) different whiskys both from Ireland and Scotland. The bar staff are from all over the English speaking world which includes Ireland (obviously), Scotland, Wales, England and Australia. We welcome people from all over the world which gives us a proper International cosy feel. Come and see what the "craic" is really all about.Wednesday nights karaoke from 23.00 with DJ Bobby McBrideThursday night quiz from 21.00 with Big SteveEvery Thursday, Friday and Saturday night live Irish music from 23.00Everyday Hygge and the craic :)

In the middle of downtown Aarhus, there are many watering holes. You could stumble in and out of the river of bland and expensive cafe bars, sketchy and smokey 'bodegas' (small 'locals' pubs) or just do your self a favour and try Tir na nOg first. On the weekends the place is hopping after midnight, and on the weekdays there might often be sports, a table quiz, a whiskey tasting event, or just some friendly bar tenders sitting around getting your hopefully not to depressing life story straight. The somewhat truth is that the traditional Irish pub in Ireland has almost disappeared as far as the greater public's perception of a archetypical friendly watering hole, but lives on in a few tributes to the golden days of Irish pub culture. Tir Na nOg goes way beyond a 'theme pub' and actually feels and behaves, just as it should in having a name that when translated from gaelic, means "land of youth". When i forst visited Aarhus, I had a great few nights in there. there's always decent live music, a cornucopia of good looking patrons, a mind blowing whiskey and spirits collection, and knowledgeable and polite (unless you whistle at them...) staff. skip the other "themed" bars around, this is where you'll relax.

Nicely located in the city center, this bar offers a vast amount of beers and whiskeys.
Staff is always friendly, and there is an excellent atmosphere in the pub. Definitely a must when in Aarhus!

I first came here about six years ago and have been a regular visitor since then. Sometimes several times weekly. Among the different bars and pubs in Frederiksgade, Tir Na Nog is my favourite pub although as already mentioned by others a bit pricier than some other places.

The atmosphere is wonderful, relaxing and cozy in surroundings of Irish decorations and candle lights. Throughout the years, I have never experienced any kind of violence.
The bartenders are clever to sense and nip bad behavior in the bud. They always intervene and ask a hostile visitor to leave immediately.

Most of the of the english speaking cross cultural staff are excellent and remarkable more friendly and helpful than many of the bartenders from the other pubs and bars in the street. It is also my impression that the level of education among visitors in Tir Na Nog is higher than in the other pubs of the street.

It is a good pub to learn something about Irish culture and to meet a mix of new people from different cultures. A real cross cultural pub.

The selection of beer and whiskey is large and a glass of Guinness, Kilkenny or Staropramen draught beer is served well poured. There is no food available, only snacks, but it is allowed to bring food from outside.

Most of the excellent music is traditional Irish/English folk/rock and reflect to a certain degree the taste of the bartender(s). There are regular live bands/soloists, quiz evenings on Thursdays and particular events are celebrated frequently with music and different attractive dicount offers.

Important Irish and British sporting events in the TV are shown on four screens among which three of them are wide screens.

The arrangement of the pub is pleasant and comfortable with the bar in the middle of the room surrounded by chairs, tables, a small stage and several front windows. There is room for max. 150 visitors and a few extra just outside the entrance below an open canopy.

It's great to see an Irish bar outside of Ireland being done right.
As a visiting Irish man "Tir Na nOg" is my bar of choice in Aarhus, great drink selection (Beer\whiskey), fantastic staff, evening time entertainment, overall excellent atmosphere, it checks all the boxes :)
