“Great Irish Pub... Beer and Food.. Our #1 place so far in Rotorua”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Centrally located; Very authentic Irish Pub; Good value; we had Shepard Pie and a Beer for $15NZD each. Great service. The young female greeter was as authentic as it gets! A wonderful place.

“Irish pub in Rotorua”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Arrived late from Hamilton, checked into the Quest apartments, and stopped at Hennessy's for dinner. I had bangers and mash, another party had beef and Gluiness and the third had a steak sandwich, all very good.

“A little bit of Ireland in Rotorua”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Hennessy's Irish Bar captures the ambience of the traditional Irish Bar successfully with well presented, hearty meals and creamy pints of guinness.
The Bar was apparently extremely popular with the Barmy Army during the 2011 Rugby World Cup who consumed some 3500 pints of Guinness over the couple of days they adopted the Bar as "home" during the tour!!!
We enjoyed the hearty evening meal and pleasant service at the Bar. Would recommend as a great place to spend a convivial evening when visiting Rotorua.

“excellent food great prices”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Had a family get together and all eight of us were blown away by the lovely meal from the seafood chowder, dohn dory, open steak sandwich to the liver and bacon. The staff were friendly and the service was excellent. Have already been back for the seafood chowder for lunch as it is sooo lovely and served with garlic bread. Just nice for a tasty lunch. Love the atmosphere at Hennesseys, Rotorua. Highly recommended to all
