Food is very good and the atmosphere is very much like an Irish pub with live musicians regularly performing traditional Irish music.

We made a point to take our family here while in the Killington area this year, since we had an awesome experience here in the past! The food is great, the beer is awesome, and the staff is super friendly! We love hearing about the history of the inn, the long trail, & the hikers! This bar/restaurant is built into... More

Love to stop in McGrath's every time I visit, whether it be summer or winter. Murray and Owen are so fun and friendly. Love the Shepherd's Pie, the Guiness stew, and the burgers. Nice selection of beer. Very comfortable for a casual meal. A must visit!

If you are looking for a cozy taste of Ireland, McGrath's Irish Pub is a wonderful place to go. We live locally and are always happy when we pop in. The Guinness Stew is so wonderful that both my and my husband's family's request dinner there when they visit. The front room is full of classic wooden toys, which continually... More

So I have been here on a few occasions when visiting Vermont. The food is average and the place is long overdue for a renovation. They usually have a really good crowd and people enjoy sitting on the goofy rock couch but I would not say it is a must visit. If you see it in the light of day,... More

We went for a friend's birthday and came away with a grand experience. The atmosphere was historical and very comfortable. The staff Owen and Bob did a great job, they learn and remember your name and by the end of the night they have made you feel like you have been friends for life. The live band made me feel... More

Good food, plenty of beers and other spirits, friendly staff and great Irish music on Friday and Saturday. Don't miss it while in Killington.

Stopped at McGraths after doing Deer Leap hike. The restaurant and bar were charming as any Irish pub. Though i did not stay in the Hotel i simply cannot wait to get back up there. The atmosphere and design of the place was super cozy and comfy, with quaint sitting areas, game rooms and an overall peaceful vibe.

My wife and I ate here twice for dinner on our Vermont trip. Both times the food was fast and service friendly, meals were very well priced for what was received. The atmosphere is what you would expect for a pub, wood furniture with nic nacs adorning the walls. Portions are quite large for the price so this is a... More
