About the pub
Cooper's Hill Public House was created as a place to gather with the community in mind. Warm and welcoming, with local organic food and plenty to drink, Cooper's Hill Public House will feel like your home away from home.
This historical space was completely renovated from floor, to bar, to ceiling, even knocking down a wall or two in order to create a welcoming open atmosphere. We stocked our bar with over 140 whiskeys and our kitchen with local, fresh food.
Now we welcome you to join us at the community table, bar or lounge; Come for dinner or simply some drinks; Listen to live music, watch a European football match or pick a game from our game cabinet; As William Butler Yeats said, “There are no strangers here, only friends you have not met yet.”
About the owners
Kyle and Cassandra Sullivan have been Peterborough residents since 2015. Kyle is originally from Ithaca, New York and Cassandra is a New Hampshire native. Fittingly, they met at an Irish pub in the East Village of New York City.
While Kyle had dreamed of owning his own business for years, the idea for Cooper’s Hill started to form after they spent their honeymoon traveling around Ireland. There they visited many traditional Irish pubs.
Kyle earned his Business degree from Penn State University and Cassandra holds degrees in Visual Art Management and Art History from the Fashion Institute of Technology. With the help of family, friends, and the Peterborough community, as well as their backgrounds in business, management, and customer service, the Sullivans were able to design, build, and open their dream pub, Cooper's Hill Public House.
About the name
Cooper's Hill Public House is named after an 18th-century country house in Riverstown, County Sligo, Ireland. The Sullivan’s visited the original Coopershill, now a bed & breakfast, on their honeymoon. They immediately fell in love with the history, hospitality, magical setting, farm-to-table meals, and warmth they felt in this space.
Before opening Cooper’s Hill Public House in Peterborough, NH, the Sullivan’s were granted a traditional Irish blessing from Simon and Christina O’Hara, the current proprietors of Coopershill in Ireland.
We hope to share the spirit of the original Coopershill with you here in Peterborough, New Hampshire. Céad míle fáilte – a hundred thousand welcomes!
