Fun
Rí Rá is located in an historic bank building, designed by Boston based Harper & West, that was completed in 1931. The pub opened for the first time in March 1999, and was extended in 2002 with the addition of the Library area. In February 2012, The Whiskey Room opened its doors. As you enter Rí Rá, you can imagine yourself walking through a door that leads you across the pond to experience the best pubs of Ireland. The pub interiors were salvaged and restored in Ireland prior to being shipped to Vermont. We are proud to showcase a unique and genuine Irish pub in the heart of Burlington.

First time at this pub and won’t hesitate to come back when traveling through the area. The food and the outdoor patio experience was delightful.

Ordered the Cottage Pie which was savory and delicious. Though I originally thought it a small portion - it turned out to be the perfect size.

Only issue was I love Irish Stew and it was not on the menu.

Fantastic place with great food and great service. The place is active and fun and is a wonderful place to go and have a beer, relax with some damn good food, and enjoy the Irish bar ambiance. Managers and Staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at home.
They did a great job for me and my guest.

Excellent food. Irish stew is what one of us absolutely loves and is why we chose RiRa's. Another one of us was thankful you had some gluten free options.
We also appreciated that we were given a quieter table in the back so we could talk. We were all celebrating that it was our first dinner out, as we were all double vaccinated at least 2 weeks ago! Yay..a great pub for our first time out in a year!

I had the “southern belle” chicken sandwich and a side Caesar salad. The food was good. It was a Sunday night so the crowd was light. I appreciate the distance between parties. I also like contactless pay.

Mediocre food in a lackluster restaurant. The service was decent, but only because expectations were so low. It is what it is.

Bathroom was disgusting. When I reported it to a server, I was told, “We’ve been busy.”
However, it was only 5PM and the place had a minimum of 4 tables filled.

I would like to write a good review about this restaurant but RiRa never got my reservation from Open Table. The person at the door admitted their tablet went dead. I showed the confirmation on my cell phone but that didn't seem to matter. I was told I could go on the waitlist and expect a table in about 90 minutes. No thank you. The three people at the door thought it was really funny.

Nothing special about the food or visit. Limited options and high prices for what you got. Wouldn’t eat here again with the other choices in the area.
