Description: As you enter Rí Rá you can imagine yourself walking through a door that leads you back in time to the peaceful and cozy atmosphere of a traditional pub 100 hundred years ago in Ireland. When you visit Rí Rá you will feel as if you are going back in time, such is the ambiance of the pub. All of the pub interiors were salvaged and restored in Ireland and shipped to Portland. The pub is on two levels, with three distinct areas.

It's one of the larger bars/pubs in Portland, so you don't usually have trouble finding a seat even on a Saturday night. The food is pretty good all-around, though I think they may be scared of salt over there...

We met our friends in the small bar to the front right. Great bartender. Excellent beer selection and good cocktails. Dinner was upstairs and our server was fantastic. 10 meals, 10 happy diners. The Fish N Chips was delicious. Calamari was outstanding. Would definitely go back!

Rira was recommended by the hotel staff on my last trip to Portland. The restaurant / pub has been brought in from Ireland, it is beautiful, our server was from Ireland as well.
We were there for lunch and a beer and we all were impressed.
