Rosie O'Grady's Irish Pub

Since '20

We’re Stef and Lara, the dynamic duo behind Rosie O’Grady’s in Napier, Hastings, and Taradale. Believe it or not, our love story began in the ’90s at the OG Rosie’s – where sparks flew, and our passion for Irish pubs ignited like a well-poured pint of Guinness.

Fast forward through years of working, managing pubs, starting a family, and building careers – we couldn’t shake the dream of bringing Rosie’s legendary Irish hospitality back to Hawke’s Bay. In 2019, we scored the lease for the Provincial Hotel in Napier, envisioning an Art Deco haven. Then bam! 2020 hit like a rogue wave, putting the brakes on our plans faster than you can say “sláinte.”

But when life hands you lemons, or in our case, a pandemic, you make lemonade… or open a pub in Taradale! The first Rosie’s revival hit the scene in April 2021, with Hastings following suit in August – earthquake strengthening, licensing hiccups, and Covid curveballs included. Napier, oh Napier, took its sweet time but finally joined the Rosie’s party in December 2022.

Sure, it was a wild ride – lockdowns, delays, and enough stress to turn anyone a few shades of green. But let us tell you, opening those doors was worth every twist and turn. Rosie O’Grady’s Hawke’s Bay is more than a pub to us; it’s our heart and soul with a Kiwi twist on the Irish classic.

We’ve got Guinness flowing like a river, pub grub that’ll make your taste buds dance, and enough craic to keep you grinning from ear to ear. Yet, what truly makes Rosie’s magic happen is our fantastic team and the Irish hospitality they dish out like it’s going out of style.

So, here’s to the journey, the laughs, the challenges, and the pints – and to you, our Rosie’s family, for being a part of it all. Sláinte to many more good times ahead!


We take serious pride in creating an atmosphere that screams “home sweet home.” It’s the secret sauce to our Irish hospitality. We want every face that graces Rosie’s to feel like they’ve just stepped into their favorite living room – comfy, familiar, and ready for some good times.

Whether you’re a Hawke’s Bay local or just passing through, we invite you to swing by and soak in the warmth and hospitality of Rosie O’Grady’s. It’s not just a pub; it’s a home away from home, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

See you soon!
