“Good atmosphere and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Unique decor with lots of history. Who knew the Irish make great ribs, which were served with a generous portion of veggies.

“Cozy, Value, Entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

If you are looking to avoid the pretentious crowd for dinner or après ski head here. The pub is located on Route 4 west if you are coming from the Killington Access Road (less than 5 minutes) on Route 4 West. The pub has seating for about 50 or so plus space near the bar, so call ahead if you need to sit.

As other reviewers have stated, this is a very authentic Irish pub. Guinness on tap, and typical Irish fare is served. I highly recommend the Sheppard's Pie which is a good value for $12. The Irish Reuben is also a good choice for less than $10.

If you are just looking to come for the entertainment, check out their website for the schedule (http://www.innatlongtrail.com/McGraths_Irish_Pub.html). We were able to listen to some authentic Irish music on our visit. There are also some cool nooks in the pub where you can sit on a rock outcropping which add the character of this place.

Bus service is located nearby for $2, check near the front desk for the schedule. Enjoy!

“Always amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

You can not go wrong with a pint of Guiness and a bowl of Guiness Stew. Great atmosphere, big choice of top shelf whiskeys, Irish and Scotish.

“Made me want to stay at the Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We were staying down the street at the Cortina and came to McGrath's for dinner. We were delighted with the live music and cozy atmosphere. So much so, that we're going to investigate staying at the Long Trail Inn next time we go up to Killington just for the pub! Erin's Guild was playing that night and they were fantastic. The food was delicious, I had the turkey sandwich and the beer and cheese soup. Please, do yourself a favor, order that soup! The waitress forgot to add meatballs to our nachos ad well as bring out a caesar salad, but the rest of the experience was so good it didn't even matter. Awesome spot.

“Most authentic Irish pub I have seen in the US”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

My wife and I go to Irish pubs at least once a month. A little while ago we have visited Galway, and this pub in rural Vermont was closest to the ones we saw in Ireland.

Service was exceptional
Food was good
The atmosphere was cozy and beautiful.

Kudos to its owners.
