In the heart of Townsville, the Kirwan Tavern is the perfect meeting place for locals and tourists alike. We’re the ideal place for families to come together for an overdue long lunch, for mates to catch up over a beer and watch the game, or to celebrate a milestone birthday or special event.

Kirwan Tavern hosts a wide range of touring entertainment including Australian Comedy and Kiwi artists. If it’s something heavier you’re after? ‘Hotter Than Hell’ concert is also held annually out the back of the venue under a big top. Relive all your fave 80s-90s rock and punk bands.

Inspired by our local surroundings and producers, we believe in sourcing locally and sustainably. Our Bistro has something for everyone, including fresh seafood, steaks, pastas, salads and all the pub classics you know and love. We have a dedicated menu for our youngest guests to keep everyone happy, plus a delicious and affordable seniors menu.

If it’s a drink you’re after, look no further than our Sports Bar. It’s the perfect place to sip a brew and relax in one of our lounges broadcasting live sport across a number of large TV screens. Plus, we’re an Official Home of UFC, so you’ll be able to catch every PPV and Fight Night, live and free, at your local.
