Our History

Molly and Willie Reddy opened the Tara Inn (later nicknamed the “wee Tara”) at its first location on Eglinton in 1988. At that time, the current owners, Wayne & Maria Reddy, met at the wee Tara, and became partners a couple of years later with Willie and Molly, when they purchased the Olde Stone Cottage near Guildwood and ran it as the Tara Inn for 3 and a half years. Then in 1993 they moved the second Tara Inn to the current Cliffside location.

The Tara Inn has long been a community hub, with live performances by many of Irelands favourtite entertainers including, The Furey Bros. Paddy Reilly, Jim McCann, Paul Harrington, Sonny Knowles ,Barleycorn, and even some Canadian stars & Juno award-winners, including Paul James, Downchild, Greg Godovitz, and Kim Stockwood.
