Temporarily closed

THANK YOU, thank you all so much 💚💚💚

[06/30/20]   We at O’Faolains had hoped that by now we would have re-opened.To remain closed for such a long period comes at a high cost for all of us involved in O’Faolains and so throughout this time we have been impatiently awaiting a safe opportunity to get back to the business of taking care of our valued customers.
However our priority must be the health and safety of both our staff and customers. From the daily reports on national news it is clear that re-opened bars and restaurants are being identified by the various health authorities as very significant sources of new cases of the virus and in some states these bars are being forced to close up again. As large numbers of the public are extremely reluctant to visit those bars which are re-opened, the viability of these businesses is still very much in question.
Consequently, with a very heavy heart, we at O’Faolains have decided that the most responsible (if costly) decision is for us is to remain closed for a further period until we can be confident that we can have a re-opening that is both safe and prudent.
We ask for your understanding in this very difficult time for our hospitality industry and we look forward to providing “a little bit of Irish hospitality” in Sterling soon again. This does not mean the end.

[06/12/20]   Hello everyone.
Just to let you all know after serious thought and for the continued safety of our staff and patrons we are going to hang back on the reopening until we see how phase two goes. We are all super excited about seeing everyone and counting down the days till we hear those glasses clink again.

It’s National Burger Day. Who’s missing this big guy. The good ould O’s Burger. 🍔

[05/27/20]   Hay guys just a quick update. After serious thought and consideration we will not be moving forward with opening back up during phase 1 which is due to start on Friday May 29th. We hope everyone continues to stay safe and we will keep you updated on the reopening plan in the near feature.


Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone. Many thanks to all the veterans and active service members. This ones for you.

[03/16/20]   To Our Friends, Family, and Patrons,

We pride ourselves on being a central part of our local community and as such take our responsibility for everyone's safety very seriously. It was with heavy hearts that we have decided to temporarily close for business as our community deals with the COVID-19 virus and its ramifications. We hope that all of you stay safe during this tumultuous time and thank you for understanding that this was not an easy decision to make. We look forward to seeing you all again soon when we can regale each other with tales of our quarantine days over a pint and some shepherd's pie! Until then, be safe and we'll see you soon!! ☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️
