Why are we called
The Three Sisters?
Many of the Newfoundlanders living in this neck of the woods are descendant from an area of Ireland just southwest of Waterford, here you will find three rivers which meet the sea; River Barrow, River Nore & River Suir and these rivers are known as The Three Sisters.
Though it is worth mentioning that our owner does have two sisters and all three of them frequent the pub - if you're lucky you just might spot them.
Our particular story began in the 19th century, when the land on which The Three Sisters is located was owned by merchant James E. Croucher and from 1883 to the mid 1900’s the building itself changed hands many times - though always remained a family home. The sale of the house to Isabel Byrne in the mid 1900’s resulted in the first commercial use of the premises with the opening of a store, a store which became widely known in the region as Belle Byrne’s Store.
In 1997, the property was purchased by the Kelly's who undertook renovations of the property to re-purpose the building as a restaurant! In a nod to the building’s most recent heritage, the operation was named Belle’s Restaurant and ran successfully for many years.
The Three Sisters Pub and Restaurant opened its doors in 2007 after plenty of renovations and new ownership by the Whelan family,
The Three Sisters is proud to be a celebrated focal point of the community.
Here at The Three Sisters we showcase the traditional and familiar flavours us locals know and love. We offer our hand crafted cocktails with syrup and garnish from wild foraged edibles - local juniper, berries and mint.
Thanks to our recent partnerships, we are finally excited to serve local foods such as; lamb, honey, fish, cheese and scallops. The Three Sisters has quickly become a local favorite and a popular destination for those exploring the area.
Meet regulars at the bar or sit with visitors from all over the world, all while you enjoy the local music, soak up the atmosphere and absorb the history.
