The Liffey Irish Pub first opened in February 2003 and is part of the Cara Irish Pub family which includes our sister pubs The Local, Kieran’s Irish Pub and Cooper Pub. In the summer of 2011 we remodelled the pub, adding more color and flair along with more bench and high booth seating, while still retaining our warmth & charm. The pub was built in Dublin, Ireland before being constructed here in St. Paul.
The Liffey was chosen as the name to celebrate both our proximity to the Mississippi river and our cultural ties to Dublin as The Liffey is the name of the river that runs through Dublin, Ireland.
The Liffey is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
In 2005, we opened The Terrace at The Liffey, our 2nd story outdoor seating area. This award winning patio offers seating for over 150 with a full bar available to our guests as they take in views of St. Paul.
