T.C. O’Leary’s is a small community pub modeled after pubs found in Ireland. We welcome customers with a warm atmosphere, friendly staff, and Irish-inspired food and drinks using local Northwest ingredients. Our goal is for every customer to feel a sense of belonging and look forward to their next visit. 

At T.C. O'Leary's you'll find a little taste of Ireland nestled in a wonderful Portland neighborhood. Join us in the pub for modern takes on Irish comfort food, meet neighbors at the bar or chatting around our whiskey-barrel tabletops, gather your friends in the snug, or grab a bite at the chipper window if you can't stay long. 

We look forward to seeing you.

Thomas Christopher O'Leary, Owner

It is no stretch to say that Irish pubs helped make Tom O'Leary the person that he is today. Their charm was not lost on him. Pubs are the focal point of Irish neighborhoods and towns, including Killiney where Tom grew up. During years working as an actor in Dublin - from small theatres to six years playing Dr. Brendan Daly on Ireland's most popular soap opera, Fair City - Tom and fellow performers communed at local pubs, drinking pints like they would never age. For his wedding reception, a magical pub in the West of Ireland suited him and his new wife better than any hotel. After moving to America, bartending at Irish pubs in both New York and Los Angeles helped pay the bills, as it did for so many Irish immigrants before him. Now Tom, in his adopted hometown of Portland, wants to share with his neighbors what he loves about pubs back home: the inviting atmosphere, the easy conversations that make friends of strangers, the hearty food, and, of course, the bit of whiskey and the perfectly pulled pint of Guinness.
