First of all, the staff was very friendly and helpful....that always helps. My wife had the Shepard's Pie and liked it just fine, although the Irish soda biscuits were her favorite. I had a Finnegan's salad and can honestly say it was the best salad I've ever had....delicious!

Irish stew was so rich and delicious. Shepherd's pie was good. Atmosphere was fun-staff attentive without being overbearing, music in bar that added to the ambience. Collages of Ireland's unique sights were beautiful.

We liked the look of McCarthy's but on a Monday night in late August there was distinct lack of customers (4 including us) Bar server was very nice. The place was scheduled to close at 10.00pm but we were gone by then.

Yes, deserves to be in top ten. Not stellar food but real good. Have a weird thing like a sandwich between two pancakes you eat with a fork. That was ok. Soup was ok with good flavor, needed to be creamier. Someone had a rueben, a little more Meat would be good but still ok sandwich. We had several salads,... More

I had the shepherds pie which was tasty and a great chocolate desert. Good selection of beers to wash it down. Service was also friendly and efficient.

I ordered the Boxty Beef Stew and it was delish! Definitely try to check it out if you've never tried a Boxty. My husband tried the fish and chips which was good as well. I tried the famous Guinness beer and it was smooooth.

This place was good had a really great server was just personable and gave us some good info about the area. The food was just ok it was good but nothing impressive. The desert on the other hand was awesome. Bailys Cheese cake. I'll go back again for the cake.
