Tierney’s Irish Pub offers Haarlem craic and ‘gezelligheid’

The unmistakable craic attracts customers to Tierney’s Irish Pub, a Haarlem social staple. It is a classic-yet-modern Irish pub, shifting gear with ease from café to bar to party-venue. From capable lunchtime home-from-home hubbub to hearty-dining experiences. Tierney’s is the place to indulge the city’s many vices.

Cheerful staff are attentive in offering drinkers and diners the pub’s many joys. The diverse options include whiskey, whisky (no ‘e’), wines, spirits and cider, ever-popular. And then there is beer.

Tierney’s Irish Pub serves Guinness, alongside excellent national and international mainstream beers. There are also several house-produced craft ales from the pub’s brewery. The Stolen Bicycle Brewery, named after a popular Netherlands’ activity, produces an Irish Red Ale and IPA — the Thievin’ Fecker and the Robbin’ Bastard.

The well-curated menu offers a diverse and healthy range, showcasing fine city chefs. The tantalising mains, seasonal specials, sandwiches and burgers are a magnet for pub-fayre devotes. And Tierney’s tempts everyone with its robust, solid and dependable snacks and meals.

Tierney’s Irish Pub is pleasant, uncomplicated and straightforward, the essence of Haarlem: fun, friendly and welcoming. Expats and locals mingle with tourists, jostling for the best seats in the house to enjoy the gossip and a beer. Regulars and passers-by join the celebrated pub quizzes. Or revel in the sport shown on large screens: rugby, football, Gaelic sports and everything else.
