Tir na nOg Restaurant Review

: At this upscale Irish pub, the view works both ways. Look outside, and you're treated to a classic Baltimore harborscape; gaze into the dining room, and you get a peek back in time. As at other new-school Irish dining spots, an antiques-filled design places the diner into an iconic Auld Sod setting; at Tír na nÓg (named for the Gaelic "land of eternal youth"), that setting is a medieval banqueting hall, complete with Gothic tracery, antlers, a faux pipe organ, and a wealth of stained glass. The cooking, which we might call New Irish-American, is considerably more modern, adding contemporary flourishes and international accents to such usual suspects as shepherd's pie, bangers and colcannon, and fish ‘n’ chips. At times, the Irishisms disappear completely, as in the penne with shrimp and sun-dried tomatoes, chicken quesadilla or Maryland crab cake. Of course, to maintain the Hibernian mood, you can always wash meals down with a Harp or Guinness brew.

Tir na NOG

Living in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, and within walking distance, the Tir na NOg, offers a fine selection of Irish beers, decent, but highly priced food, with very good service. Previously, I have dined there on four occasions.

Memorial Day weekend wa marked a most unpleasant, memeroable experience. The bar area seem to be amateurs, unfriendly, and there to take your check, tip and run. You may, in adition, have to tolerate a juvenile crowd who are insulting, or at least rude. One out-of-towner was interestingand friendly.Someone mentioned that the servers may have been sick that evening.
