Description: Mac Carthy's Bar, at the Glengarrif Park Hotel County Cork, is open daily with a selection of teas, coffees, freshly baked scones and Bar Food served all day. Relax on the benches outside with the daily newspaper or your favourite book and let the world go by as the village of Glengarriff unhurriedly awakes. The Bar Menu is served all day, with a daily special roast of the day served with buttered vegetables and creamed potatoes and a varied and interesting menu using only the finest local produce.There is live music at the weekends which is enjoyed by both locals and hotel guests alike.

Nice pub with good food. We ordered pork and beef and also the soup of the day which was mushroom. We enjoyed the big portion of meat and potatoe. We also found a hungarian beer mat on the wall :)

This is a hotel bar. The service is excellent and you can get the same food as at the hotel restaurant which is a plus. Other pubs in town are more authentically Irish.

We were on road to Killarney and we decided to eat something in this pub. We waited about 20 minutes for someone who said at least an "hallo", then other 10 to have our order taken.. While a man was taking our order, a waitress called him, he excused and went away without ask what we wanted to drink. We waited but we didn't see none else till the moment the waitress brought our meals and quickly went away, then the desert for minutes.. In fact we ate our dishes without drinking. When we had almost finished, we saw the man of the order and called him to have some water. Previously we thought to take two beers and the dessert after, but after that kind of service we preferred to go somewhere else.

The landlady was very hospitable and the character of the place is great. We were allowed to bring the dog into the bar which was good.
