About

If you’re looking for a local pub with great food or to watch the Hurricanes in a comfortable environment, look no further. When you visit The Piper’s Tavern for the 1st time you will notice the casual and friendly atmosphere.  The buzz of lively conversation coming from the patrons at the bar and the families in the dining areas instantly make you feel at home.

We are a unique blend of Sports Bar, a Family Neighborhood Tavern and a traditional Irish pub.  Bringing good people, good friends and families together for good times and great food is what we are all about.

We are a meeting place for all to gather, talk, sing , watch sports (on multiple flat screen TVs) enjoying the NHL, NFL and MLB packages.  Sports had to be a part of the theme since both Dan and Jimmy are enormous sports fans.  Jimmy Powers ended his professional hockey career here in Raleigh and made it his home.  He has been a part of the community and contributor (time and effort) to Youth Hockey in the Raleigh, Durham area for nearly two decades!

Dan relocated his family to the Raleigh/Durham and made this their home after taking a position at the Capital City Club.

Now Dan Hurlely just happens to have over 30 years of real world culinary experience:

  • La Fromagerie, Rumson, NJ
  • Executive Chef at Whispers Restaurant , Spring Lake, NJ
  • Capital City Club, Raleigh, NC
  • 1st Executive chef of Tir  na nOg Irish Pub, Raleigh, NC (many of Dan’s entrees are still staples on their menu)

Dan has been contacted twice by Bon Appetite magazine for recipes that he created; the Roasted Eggplant soup and the Irish Beef Boxty.

  • Burgers
