Hennessy’s Irish Bar is one of New Zealand’s favourite Irish bars, right in the heart of Rotorua.

Totally rebuilt in 2016 after the building failed earthquake prone building assessment, Hennessy’s is a beautifully designed pub, in the truly Irish tradition with spacious booths and hidden-away private tables. Seating available for small or larger groups. We are proud to cater for business, corporate, social and tour groups, as well as families and individuals.

Our team at Hennessy’s work hard to ensure you get both an enjoyable dining experience and the perfect pint every time you walk through the door. We have received the prestigious BEER MASTERS AWARD every year we have been operating; an award that recognises excellence in presentation of our tap beers and service.

Hennessy’s has live music every Thursday night and on some weekends. And last, but not least, Hennessy’s has many large TV screens to show live coverage and replays of international and national games including our new 70″ screen.

Hennessy’s has also played a major role in hosting the Barmy Army supporting the 2005 British and Irish Lions. We have hosted both supporters and players in the exhaustive 2011 Rugby World Cup. We are also part of a famous urban legend regarding one of Ireland’s most famous sons, the mercurial Brian O’Driscoll, after Ireland played NZ Maori in 2010.
