Rare Olde Times - Irish Pub in Richmond, Virginia (RVA)

The Public House

Now Open Sundays 10-2PM! Monday-Saturday 3pm-Midnight

Irish cuisine draws on an abundance of ingredients available from sea, and pastureland. Chef Con Cleary has joined us from Galway, Ireland to bring us the best of new and traditional Irish cuisine.  We now feature several vegetarian and gluten free options!

Irish Public House

Having a long tradition as a centerpiece in people's lives, public houses have acted as hardware stores, "spirit groceries", undertakers, and in many other capacities.

But as a place for friends and community to gather in an informal setting, pubs have become less well known.

Rare Olde Times is distinctly a Public House. You can find casual and regular acquaintances, friendly staff, a homely setting, and the personal touch that family ownership brings.

Hours: Monday-Saturday 3pm-Midnight; Now Open Sundays 10am-2pm Irish Breakfast!

Join us at RVA's most authentic Irish Public House.
