About Us

We’ve been a proud Scarborough establishment for over 30 years! Our Irish pub serves hearty fare, including award-winning chicken wings and our traditional Irish breakfast on weekends.

We love being part of the Scarborough Bluffs community and are always hosting and participating in local events. Join us for live music every weekend, including Irish music from 4pm to 8pm every Sunday. Check out our full calendar of events to see what else we’ve got going on.

Our History

Molly and Willie Reddy opened the Tara Inn (later nicknamed the “wee Tara”) at its first location on Eglinton in 1988. A few years later, they purchased the Olde Stone Cottage near Guildwood and ran it for three and a half years. Then in 1993 they set up a second Tara Inn at the current Cliffside location and current owners Wayne and Maria Reddy joined as partners.

The Tara Inn has long been a community hub, with live performances by local talent and even some Juno award-winners. Many of Ireland’s finest entertainers have also performed here, including Paddy Reilly, the Fureys, Jim McCann, the Barleycorn and comedian Brendan Grace.

We host a wide variety of events, from weekly team meets to parties of up to 250 people. Let us take the stress out of event planning by helping you choose the right menu and booking your live entertainment. Special menus or catering is available and helium balloons are complementary.
