Description: Rí Rá Irish Pub epitomizes a true Irish pub experience. A comfortable neighborhood environment where conversation flows as smoothly as Guinness ebbs in the glass. Constructed from a pub meticulously restored in Ireland then shipped to Las Vegas, it’s a hotspot for locals and visitors alike, offering an impressive line-up of live music, a comprehensive drink list and fare that defies pub standards.

“Excellent Fish”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

I stopped by to have a pint and ended up having lunch. Now if you are a solo they put you at the bar to eat and drink no matter what you tell the hostess. I asked for a small table but she would not seat me there. They only give tables to 2 or more. The beer is cold and the bar tender was nice. Eating at he bar is hard and yes uncomfortable but that's all you got if on your own.
I had the fish and chips (small) now bar tender did not ask size just ordered it for me. But it was big and more than enough also had a Ginness Sunday (small). I did ask small there paid full price but it was so worth it.
Total bill was 29.68, for fish/beer/sunday.
But it is really good, they are nice and it is a pub atmosphere.

“Who doesn't love an Irish pub!?”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Irish Pub = always a great time. If you like the rowdy pub style, Ri Ra is really fun! they have a bar area and some tables. it is very small and close quarters like an authentic pub in the streets of Ireland. a lot of the people who work there are from other countries so you hear all the different accents. food is good..they have all the authentic irish dishes you would expect. they get very busy, especially on holidays.

“Ri Ra Irish Pub - A MUST VISIT”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We hosted a wedding party in the "Parlour Room" of this traditional Irish Pub. We can't speak highly enough of the positive experience we had at the Ri Ri. Everything - from planning the reception, to the service, to the food and live band - was exceptional. Planning a wedding reception with the staff at the Ri Ra was seamless (thank you, Paula). The event itself was marked by professionalism, effective and efficient service and an overall sense that the customer is valued (thank you Paula, thank you Ira, thank you Allan).
You simply must visit this traditional Irish Pub to experience the Emerald Isle and some of its kindest people. The food is great, the drinks are plenty, the decor is traditional and the people are genuine. Head on down to the Ri Ra (Mandalay Bay hotel) to complete your Las Vegas experience!

“Just Average”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Was so excited to eat here due to it being an Irish Pub and advertised as authentic. The food was just average and did not sit well. Service was not very attentive and drinks took quite awhile to be served even though the restaurant was not busy. If you are interested in Irish beer, this is the place to go; however, I would eat elsewhere. As for atmosphere, I didn't find it very pub like or very Irish even though the bartender and those serving were from Ireland. There are so many fantastic places to eat in Vegas that I'll be skipping this next time I visit.
