Tir na nOg, a beloved Irish pub in downtown Raleigh that closed last year, will return with a pop-up bar for this week’s St. Patrick’s Day.

Blair Johnson of City Market Productions and Annie Nice, Tir Na nOg’s former manager who now runs Irish Mother Productions, joined forces to recreate this Raleigh pub for one night. “We are inviting all those who called Tir na nOg Irish Pub home to come do so again, even if just for a night,” they wrote in a press release.

Several musical acts who frequented Tir na nOg will perform, including James Oden, Gerry McCrudden, Inis Cairde Irish Dance, Wake and District Pipes and Drums and The Tan and Sober Gentlemen. Guiness, Smithwicks and Harp beer will be on tap and Jameson’s Irish Whiskey will be available. Food vendors also will be on hand.

The doors open at 3 p.m. Admission is $5.

The pop-up bar will be Market Hall, 215 Wolfe St., which is located off Moore Square in downtown Raleigh.
