Seacoast's new Barley House sparks St. Patrick’s with Grand Opening Week

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a bang this year at The Barley House Restaurant & Tavern’s new North Hampton location for a packed schedule of entertainment in addition to delicious food and beer.

The Barley House hosts its Grand Opening Week from March 10-17 and will feature live music, signature drinks, and an expanded menu including house made Guinness Brats, Brick Pressed ½ Chicken and the irresistible Roasted Cranberry Turkey & House-Smoked Mozzarella Sandwich.

Grand Opening Week ends on St. Patrick’s Day with Irish Step dancers at 12 p.m. and live Irish music from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. to go along with authentic Irish food like corned beef and cabbage and fish n’chips.

“Our Grand Opening Celebration serves as our official welcome to everyone in this area to make The Barley House your neighborhood stop for good food and good times,” Barley House owner Brian Shea says. “We are honored to be part of the seacoast community and we look forward to making memories one meal or one beer at a time.”

The tavern’s official Hampton Chamber Ribbon Cutting is also scheduled for Saturday, March 12 at 11 a.m. Other special events include the Irish Breakfast Plate unveiling on Sunday, March 13 and a Paint Night on Monday, March 14 (6:30 p.m.).

During the entire month of March, Barley House will also offer its scrumptious Dublin Burgers and Irish Coffees at half price. Shea says these deals are designed to give back to the community and encourage locals to see what makes his tavern a special place to eat and drink.

“We want to introduce people to our menu a little bit but more importantly to the Dublin Burger,” Shea says. “That’s one of the things we do and we’re pretty big into burger. We grind all natural meat almost every day for our burgers.”

This place takes its burgers very seriously – Shea wants to make that very clear.

“We wanted to capture the flavors and the fun of Dublin,” Shea says. “The culinary team started with a peppercorn coriander charred burger and finished with our Irish whiskey gravy. The bleu cheese and crispy onions really just pulled it together and it has become our top selling burger.”

The Barely House, which opened back in November 2015, is also featuring specialty stouts all throughout March to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. These choices come from Granite State breweries like Beara Irish Brewing Company and Stone Brewing Company. Guinness will, of course, have a spot on tap as well.

Barley House regularly carries 18 different beers on tap along with a couple of draft wines and ciders. The tavern is open seven days a week. It is open Sunday – Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Thursday – Saturday from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m.
