Nine Fine Irishmen

In Las Vegas, in the New York New York hotel and casino, you’ll find a fantastic Irish pub and restaurant called Nine Fine Irishmen.

Like Raglan Road, this is an authentic Irish pub, hand built in Ireland, disassembled, shipped to Las Vegas and reassembled again. It’s the real deal.

Where did that odd name come from? Well in 1848 nine Irish nationalists were captured by English soldiers and sentenced to death for rebelling. The crown saw sense however and commuted the sentence to transportation to Tasmania because they realised that killing them would make them martyrs. The guys were the Nine Fine Irishmen.

If you’re planning a trip to Las Vegas, make sure you drop into Nine Fine Irishmen. Tell them Raglan Road sent you.
