Authentic Irish creations from the Triangle's only Irish-trained chef

The dishes that emerge from the Tra'Li kitchen are ones that we are sure you will relish in our relaxed atmosphere. The hearty pub food created by Chef and Owner Eamonn Kelly of County Galway provides you with an authentic and satisfying taste of Irish country cooking. We offer something for everyone at any time of day - lunch, dinner, kid-friendly, seasonal, weekend brunch, and our special carvery lunch. The seasonal menu offers a variety and imaginative taste of North Carolina sourced ingredients. Our lunch and dinner menus feature traditional Irish fare, including Shepards Pie, Boxty, as well as classic pub fare like burgers and wings. If lighter eating is what you have in mind, we have hearty soups and fresh salads. Finish your meal with one of our tempting, handmade desserts.



Enjoy daily drink specials at both locations. Whether you prefer North Carolina beers on Mondays for $3 each or half price bottles of wine on Wednesdays, our drinks specials are sure to tempt you at least one day of the week if not more.


Tra'Li has great relationships with many of the local breweries, including Lone Rider, Raleigh Brewing Company, Gizmo Brewing Company, Bombshell Brewery, and more. Each of our locations has a rotating list of local brews on tap, so check out each to see if your favorites are being served this week.


Tra'Li is your local pub. From families enjoying brunch to co-workers enjoying drinks after work, and from professors writing lectures, to soccer fans watching their favorite clubs ... This is the place for you to come week after week for great company, food, and drinks.


Chef Eamonn Kelly

Our chef, Eamonn Kelly, was born onto a dairy farm in County Galway, Ireland. Chef Eamonn was introduced to the culinary world the old fashioned way, by watching his Mother. She never used a recipe or needed any measuring cups. She just knew from experience.
