We enjoyed McGills a lot. The food was great - we loved the fish and chips and the various Irish beers and whiskey. The sticky toffee pudding was to die for. They had live music. Our only criticism was we wished the music had been...More

McGills is a pub, located at Powers Court Hotel. It's not your run of the mill hotel eatery, rather an authentic Irish Pub that the locals still gather at nightly. Their fish and chips are hot and fresh and one portion could easily feed two....More

The Powerscourt Hotel itself was and amazing place. We had dinner one night in McGills. It was a perfect Irish Pub. I had Bangers and Mash. Great Irish take on the English delight! We'll be back when we come next time!

This is a great pub inside the powerscourt hotel. It has live entertainment many nights; the cost is reasonable and food is fantastic. The bartender, Ross, is ranked as one of the best in the country. Highly recommend the Old Fashioned

Nice to visit McGill's again on our latest visit. Nice selection of beer though I did have one obligatory Guinness. The bar manager - Ian Smith - is still there celebrating 5 years at Powerscourt. He has an excellent knowledge of the whiskeys he has...More

This Irish pub is more than a name or an address: it embodies a spirit of friendly congeniality, a culture of conversation and story. McGill's manifests this magnificently, full of interesting artefacts and memorabilia, with a wonderful bar, made for elbows. As well as a fine selection of whiskeys, beers and stouts, McGill's offers a tasty menu of wholesome, traditional dishes, prepared and served with imagination and style.
