Nestled in the heart of Pokolbin, Harrigan's Irish Pub exudes authentic Irish charm amidst the picturesque landscapes of the vineyards. With its warm hospitality and lively atmosphere, Harrigan's offers visitors a memorable experience combining the best of Irish tradition with the delicious local fare.


Previously known as Tallawanta Hotel, Harrigan’s was established by the Roche family in April 2000. Renowned in the region for its relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere and live music scene, Harrigan’s quickly became a popular destination for locals and tourists alike, with its rustic, shamrock-adorned exterior blending seamlessly with the cosy ambience of a traditional Irish pub.

The interior is adorned with dark wood furnishings, stained glass windows, and vintage memorabilia, transporting patrons to the Emerald Isle. Whether seated at the bar or in one of the snug alcoves, you'll feel right at home with a perfectly poured pint of Guinness in hand.

Of course, no Irish pub would be complete without a stellar selection of drinks, and Harrigan's does not disappoint. From local wines to an extensive array of Irish whiskeys and spirits, there's something to suit every palate.

The bistro includes an open fireplace for extra warmth when the weather is a bit chilly and a spacious outdoor alfresco area, which is the perfect place for a relaxed meal during the warmer months. Try the award-winning local favourite Beef and Guinness Pot Pie, indulge in a tender steak or keep things light with a specialty salad. Harrigan’s offers live music on weekends and is renowned for signature events such as the annual Melbourne Cup and St Patrick’s Day, as well as great value daily specials.

Beyond its role as a pub, Harrigan's is also a popular venue for weddings, special events, and corporate functions. Whether you're planning an intimate gathering or a grand celebration, Harrigan's offers personalised service and attention to detail to ensure that your event is truly unforgettable.
