McNamara’s is an authentic traditional Irish pub and restaurant in Nashville, TN committed to providing our guests with a clean, warm and inviting, family friendly atmosphere found in local pubs all throughout Ireland.  We hope you come by to visit, eat, and enjoy our music.

McNamara’s was established in Feb 2010 by Sean McNamara.  After years of playing at other Nashville Irish Pubs and Restaurants, he decided to open his own Irish Pub and Restaurant dedicated to providing locals and visitors with authentic Irish fare, drinks, music, and great service at an affordable price.

Founders Sean and Paula McNamara, Kirk Orndorff, and Francis "Magic" Gyebi,  have come together to combine over fifty years of expertise and knowledge in opening McNamara's.  Our primary goal is to provide a true experience that fits most Americans idea of what an Irish pub should be like;  but is also so genuine that a person living in or visiting America can walk inside and feel like they are back home in Ireland. 

From live music, to a menu comprised of classic Pub fare, and decor featuring historical photographs, Gaelic sports memorabilia, Irish music albums and instruments, and tin Pub signs.  McNamara's is dedicated to providing our patrons with the hospitality, service, and ambiance found throughout Ireland.
