Rí Rá (roughly translated as "Good Fun") has been a labor of love for Ciaran Sheehan and David Kelly, two childhood friends from Ireland, since they emigrated to the USA in the 1990’s. The duo’s mission was to create a gathering place like those pubs that they knew so well from their hometowns in Ireland. Such a place would have authentic Irish interiors, would be welcoming to all and would act as a “social hub” for the local community; a “Real Irish Local”. Rí Rá in downtown Burlington, VT, encompasses a fantastic, community oriented pub & restaurant, as well as “The Burlington Whiskey Room” on College Street! We want people who support our Mission; which (to “Create Experiences That People Love”) and want to have fun in achieving it!
