Great place to grab a drink after a long day. I'm not a huge fan of the food, but the atmosphere and authentic Irish feel is welcoming.

Went to Hibernian for their Tuesday $5 Burger deal and I was very impressed. The burger was good size, loaded with toppings, juicy and delicious! I was also impressed with the mixed drink, tasted good and not skimpy on the liquor. Best

Awful, just awful. Poor atmosphere, creepy feel. Manager has no idea what he is doing and has an undeserved sense of pride. That's all I can really say, save your money and get double the drinks for half the price somewhere, anywhere

This place USED to be awesome!! But not anymore :( I was so utterly disappointed with the changes to the menu (third time in the last 6 months) and food items that I will most likely not be back!! You got rid of raspberry bread pudding

I heard about the Hibernian downtown when I first moved here a couple years back. One of my friends told me there's a local Hibernian in Cary and I had to go check it out. Its hidden in plane sight with big gold letters spelling Hibernian

I'm not a beer drinker so I can only talk to the food, service and atmosphere.

Food: Only okay, and they brought the appetizers, salads and main entree all at the same time with no apologies. Guess that speaks to service. Place was not

This is a great place to sit down and have a few drinks and cigarettes outside to relax. They also carry Strongbow cider, which is hard to find around here. We ate here once, and probably won't again. The food isn't necessarily bad, it's just way overpriced.

I like when there's a live band playing too, and it's a good place to bring friends from out of town.

Anyone who claims that this company delivers low quality foods should learn how to cook! I'm sure that classes are offered at Wake Tech and are fairly accessible to the general public. That being said, I understand the reluctance of any reasonable person to deal with "shady" or intoxicated delivery men trying to make an extra buck--I've seen many such individuals from Omega, who tell me that they have a "few extra" on the truck that they are letting go at a great price. Naturally, I tell these individuals exactly how uninterested I am. Recently, however, I was surprised when the actual Warehouse Manager, Denver, and the local Route Manager, Dwight, came to my door and asked for help. They explained to me that a driver had called in today, and that his deliveries were scheduled for that evening in Rocky Mount. Denver and Dwight were planning on going to a Dave Matthews Band concert that night and had received authorization from the company's owner to let the food that the driver was supposed to deliver go out at the company's cost, while rescheduling the food's original delivery time. I was a little bit skeptical at first, but once it became apparent that I wasn't conversing with ex-convicts I was immediately put at ease. And thank goodness I was. I ended up getting nearly 250 pounds of choice rated meat for $600! I even weighed it myself. I asked Denver what the deal was with drivers stopping by and trying to sell meat (though they were clearly not meant to be salespeople and should have stuck with their primary task for the day: delivering food), and he explained that he does offer his employees bonuses for signing up first time buyers, and that such buyers often receive their food at company cost as well. The best part of the whole thing was that as an added bonus for helping them out, Denver and Dwight promised to lock me in at the company cost rate, which I have taken advantage of on several occasions! To the person below: I'm not sure how you ended up paying $10 per pound with this company, but maybe it had something to do with that specific delivery driver scamming you--you never know what an unscrupulous individual will do to make an extra buck. My experience with the managers, however, has been wonderful, and I would recommend buying from them to any of my friends and neighbors!

Really love this place. This is where me and my friends hang out every Friday and Saturday night. It's not a large pub, but that is what makes it so great. The staff is awesome, the bartenders are terrific, and the music and entertainment on Friday and Saturday night are awesome. Fridays have a band or soloist that come up on stage from around 10:00 to 2:00 am, and Saturdays are Karaoke night which is a must see.

We took the family here and everyone enjoyed it. Enough variety for all age groups. We would recommend it for families or a fun night out. Not smoky the night we visited.

The hibernian is a great restaurant, especially on trivia night, bring your friends and all your "useless" information!

Prices are reasonable and the food is pretty good, nothing real special on the menu to point out.

It's a great bar. But, an Irish Pub has to offer better fish and chips! May give it another try for the sandwiches that I have seen raving reviews detail.

I've never had a single bad experience here. The service is consistently good and the food is always fresh and delicious. I don't know exactly how "authentically Irish" it is with tortellini on the menu and all but it is definitely worth a try if you're considering it.

Pros: Any dish with chicken in it! Great service.

Cons: Can be a bit crowded with loud after-workers at the bar

My husband and I love to meet our friends here for dinner and drinks. Especially if they are from "up North" the food is always good, the drinks go just right with both the food and atmosphere, and you're not surrounded by tv's in every corner ( there are a few, discreetly placed for those who need their fix. When it comes to Irish pub's you can't beat Hibernian, both in Cary and Raleigh

We were so happy when HP came to cary. The one on Glenwood Ave in Raleigh was great. But we have been four times, each time avg food, slow service watered-down drinks and incredibly smoky atmosphere.

This is a great place to socialize after dinner. It is conveniently located in downtown Raleigh. The atmosphere is wonderful to get together with friends to unwind after a long day at work. The menu is unique and the food is great. I would recomend checking it out. I go here on dates.

We loved this place. What a unique menu. The food was excellent and great variety of beers to choose from. Most of the food selections were of the European type, but what a great variety! Something different!

This is a spot you can go when you're asking yourself "Self, what do you want to do?" It has music, all kinds of people, food, drinks; I don't know about martinis,(what idiot orders a martini in an Irish pub) and good service. It's a great place to spend the weekend.

Hibernian was recommended as we were looking for an authentic Irish pub for the area. What a great find!! The staff was courteous and friendly, Andreas & Pete really made us feel like we were special! Too bad we had to go back to Wisconsin as if we lived down here we would definitely be in all the time! (We might be moving here and being close to the pub will definitely be a criteria!)

Things have really turned around at the Cary location! Food quality is outstanding, service is better than it was in the past and the bartenders are as charming as ever. Whatever the owners did to change -- Keep on Going! Truly a pleasure to enjoy lunch or dinner.

We were promptly seated by an open door with a chilly draft at a table uncofortable placed in the wide open. All the fans were on as well. We sat ungreeted for 20 minutes, enough for us to approach the host stand and ask for help. We were told we were seated in non-smoking, even though we requested smoking, but then were later told by another staff member that we could smoke anyways. It was all very unorderly. For a pub with an Irish name, the food was way off base and I would have liked to have been offered a good Irish beer other than Guinness or Harp. Our mistake was that this restaurant was affiliated to the one in Raleigh, which is a great pub. We will not make that mistake again. At least the food was reasonable, when we finally received it.

Well, I must admit, i wanted to give this new place a try. After leaving, i find myself questioning why i bothered. The food was great if you like flavorless entree's. The service was great if you like servers who seem bothered that you ordered a bottle of wine, and then proceed to spend 10 minutes at your table chewing gum and ever so gracefully shooting spittle onto your wine glasses. I must admit however, that was the highlight of the evening. The lowlight was: after spending close to $100 on our meal (flavorless food lion recipes) we felt rushed to leave as our server hovered waiting for her check.

In the time I have spent at this new CARY hot spot I have notice a few things.The lack of service is a big down side, and the lack of a selection of beer is hard to understand.Don't get me wrong the young ladies that seem to have made this place the spot to be seen at in MiniVan land are the reason this place will last.The food will not.The lunch buffet has some serious issues and the staff might be cute but are in need of some training.Overall it has a great vibe but is lacking in real restaurant service and quality.Ther a few places in town that you could learn a lesson from.

Like its counterpart on Raleigh's Glenwood South, the Hibernian in Cary is a proper Irish outpost of good cheer. The over-the-top decor quickly grows on you as you get comfortable. As with the Raleigh pub, it's a…
