Tir na nOg hotel, restaurant, and bar are located on the idyllic tropical island of Gili Trawangan near the island of Lombok in Indonesia. Gili Trawangan is known as the busiest island of the three Gili islands, and is by far the most popular as it’s the perfect combination of tranquil day scenes and vibrant nightlife, with a wide range of restaurants and bars to keep you entertained. Tir Na nOg is conveniently located on the main strip with a beautiful beach view, where you can see Lombok shining in the distance. And this is exactly why Tir Na nOg, well known as the only Irish bar in the Gilis, is so beloved by many visitors and guests.
‘’Tir Na nOg means the land of eternal youth. So that is our aim to provide a fun atmosphere with sports, live music and the famous Wednesday night party, which appeals to the youthful side of all of us.’’ – Seth (co-owner)
Twenty years ago the bar was located on the beach, and the first drinks were basically served from a cooler out of an abandoned boat – what a story! That abandoned boat became the iconic Irish Bar of Gili Trawangan, beloved by locals and tourists. Since then, Tir Na nOg has been growing, but strives to still keep the relaxed, beachy vibes.
‘’Tir na nOg, or ‘The Irish Bar’, as it’s more fondly known, is a long-standing and popular hangout for both expats and tourists alike. Great food, banging cocktails, Wednesday Night Parties and its famous pub crawls make it a must-do for anyone who likes to let their youthful side off the leash. Don’t miss out!’’ – Chris, (co-owner)
Make sure to pop in on a Wednesday as it’s the infamous Irish Party Night. It’s one of the biggest party nights of the week, with live music, a DJ, and amazing drink specials to make sure you’ll have a night to remember. Tir na nOg also hosts the famous Gili T pub crawl three times a week. It’s the only pub crawl on the three islands, and a fun nighttime activity to meet new people, explore new bars and get your moves out on the dancefloor.
Let’s move onto the food, because we all love food! Tir Na nOg serves delicious pub food with a tropical twist. You can still find the ultimate pub best-sellers like Fish and Chips, Sausages with Mash and Gravy, Mac & Cheese and a wide range of burgers to choose from. Word on the island is that the Big Mac Burger is almost as good as the OG. As Tir na nOg is still based in Indonesia, you can also find your favourite Indonesian dishes, like classic Rendang curry or Mie Goreng. For the vegetarians, they have a variety of delicious salads to choose from, Jack Fruit curry and a Zucchini Stack.
During sunset, the cocktail specials come out, and you can enjoy some of the best drinks on the island here. A must-try is the Espresso Martini or the Celtic Cooler if you are a Gin lover. On Wednesdays, they have an amazing 2 for 1 special on for all the martini cocktails until midnight!
At the Irish bar, you will find many TVs and a widescreen projector where many different varieties of sports are shown. If you have any sport-related requests the bar managers will always go out of their way to try and stream it for you. Grab a cold Bintang and your friends, and your evening is sorted. It’s always the place to be for big sporting events, and you should come down early to grab yourself a good seat.
‘’The vibes at the Irish are fun for everyone and any occasion. If you are just down for a couple of beers and some good food, or looking for a messy night with friends, The Irish is always the place to be’’ – Jordan (bar manager)
