Owner, Hibernian Hospitality
Growing up in Ireland, Niall pulled his
first draft at age 10. Little did he know
that a few decades later, he would have
launched successful bar and nightlife
concepts in Raleigh, N.C., including
his personal pride and joy, Hibernian
Restaurant & Pub.
His more recent contribution is Raleigh
Beer Garden featuring dozens of local
brews and the world's largest selection of
draft beer. Niall's latest venture, Morgan
Street Food Hall and Market (opening
early 2018), brings local chefs, eateries
and restaurants together to display their
wares in more than 60 food stalls.
