Welcome to the emigrant
Bar & Restaurant Athy

 A New Beginning


Nestled right in the heart of Athy is the emigrant bar & Restaurant.  The premises had been trading as a Bar & an off Licence for over 10 years.  In march 2019 proprietor Mark Redmond decided it was time for change.  the Emigrant Bar & Restaurant has now diversified  into the Restaurant industry.  In November 2019 the Off licence was replaced with a vibrant, modern 80 seated restaurant, now deemed as one of the best in Athy.  

Marks vision was to introduce simple Irish cuisine, cooked to perfection, with special emphasis on value for money.

 Mission Statement


The emigrant Bar & Restaurants mission statement is to ensure that everything is cooked to order.  We source only the finest ingredients for all our dishes.  Most are sourced locally from reputable butchers, green grocers & fishmongers in the area of kildare.  All the beef bought is hung for 21 days to ensure optimum flavour and tenderness.

 Service with a smile


Customer service is a key component at the emigrant Bar & Restaurant and employing locals has always been mark's policy.   The staff at the Emigrant live local and put simply they all "go that extra mile" to ensure they deliver a friendly yet efficient service.  The Emigrant Bar & restaurant prides itself as been a family run business, proudly serving the locals of Athy and neighbouring areas.
