No-one Parties Like the Irish

We may not have invented the “Party”, but here at Rí Rá in the heart of Burlington, we sure have perfected it.


Rí Rá Burlington is the perfect place to hold a fun, casual event. Our unique setting and outstanding menu will create a truly memorable event. The pub has several options available to accommodate everything from an intimate plated dinner to a 200-person cocktail reception.

The Irish pub has always been a place for celebration and getting together with friends old and new. Look no further for a real Irish pub and check out our private party room here.

The Cottage

Groups of up to 75 seated or 100 standing guests can be accommodated when we combine the Cottage & Library areas. The Cottage provides plenty of space for guests to mingle and interact. It features a stone fireplace and has large windows with views of City Hall Park. This area is directly adjacent to the stage where we offer live entertainment on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Library

The Library provides a semi-private setting for groups of up to 35 seated or 45 standing guests. This quiet, partially closed off space creates a warm and inviting atmosphere. There is a large flat-screen television for watching any event, as well as an HDMI component for playing slideshows or personal videos.

The Whiskey Room

For a completely private and unique event, we offer the Whiskey Room at Rí Rá, featuring a range of over 100 whiskeys to augment the pubs food and beverage menus.

The Main Bar

Parties of up to 200 guests standing can be held in the main bar area. This authentic Victorian bar recreates the look and feel of a traditional Irish pub that cannot be found anywhere else in Vermont.

Planning Your Next Party!

No matter how big or small your party is, we are always ready to make it the best for you with a warm Irish welcome.

Thank you for making Zoe’s graduation party a big hit. Everything was just perfect. The food was delish, the room worked out great & the servers Braxton & Lilian were outstanding!

I really appreciate all of your help in making our event so fantastic.  I hope that we will be able to partner with Rí Rá for future events.  Our attendees had a blast!


Thank you, Tess and crew for the event at Ri Ra! Our alumni & spouses enjoyed themselves & the space was perfect for our needs. Tess did a great job through the evening and was very helpful with setup

We do all of our Happy Hours at Rí Rá because of the atmosphere and of course the staff. The bartenders are so friendly and just amazing. Love our parties at Rí Rá!


Everyone had such a great time, the food and drinks were lovely and we will be back next year for our anniversary.


Thanks so much for your help & for being so accommodating at the last minute. I truly appreciate how you helped us out. The event was exactly what I had hoped for!
