This past Sunday on May 21, 2023, we opened our third set of doors to a new office—and this one feels special. While our first two locations sit on the East Coast of the US, our goal for years has been to find a home across the pond, specifically in Ireland.
If you’ve traveled with us, you may know Ireland was our first love, our one destination when Tenon was born over 15 years ago. Since then, we’ve expanded into 15 more countries and have had the privilege of working with thousands of curious, adventure-seeking travelers.
So, why Ireland, you ask? Our President and Founder, Bryan Lewis, envisioned this office as a goal before Tenon was ever open for business:
“I specifically remember going to Murphy’s Bar on College Street [in Killarney] where I had my first Guinness stew. It was delightful, but the building itself was even better. It was the quintessential “Ireland” that I was looking for. The facade was straight out of a storybook with its inviting windows and doors, flower boxes hanging above and the classic Irish hospitality that you dream of. The highlight for me was always the traditional pub sign that hung perpendicular above the door. I wanted a pub sign of our own. In fact, the Tenon crest was originally designed to resemble just that.”
