Rockville Town Square Welcomes Finnegan's Wake Irish Pub

From our friends at Rockville Town Square...

Federal Realty Investment Trust announced today Finnegan’s Wake Irish Pub is set to open its first location at Rockville Town Square later this summer. Finnegan’s Wake Irish Pub, 2,411 square feet, will feature traditional Irish cuisine. Owners Terry and Vanessa Laurin are a local husband-and-wife team, who will launch their first family owned and operated establishment with an emphasis on warmth and comfort. Construction will begin in June at 100-F Gibbs Street.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Finnegan’s Wake Irish Pub to the Rockville Town Square community. It’s a wonderful addition to our expanding selection of dining options this summer, and will provide a casual and friendly atmosphere for customers looking for a traditional and fun Irish experience,” says Deirdre Johnson, Vice President of Asset Management - Core Shopping Center Division.

Finnegan’s joins a growing roster of new restaurants coming to, or newly opened at Rockville Town Square. Miso CafĂ© and Samovar are also expected to open this year, and the newly opened Peter Chang is now welcoming guests to enjoy its premier healthy and traditional Chinese cuisine.

“Nothing says a good Irish Pub like a proper pint of Guinness,” says Finnegan’s owner Vanessa Laurin. “Both my husband and I are looking forward to opening the first restaurant of our own. Finnegan's Wake Irish Pub will be a warm welcoming place where guests will instantly feel at home.”
