We relied on McGills a couple times during our stay at the Ritz. It's on the third floor of the Ritz and set back from plain sit. But, for being inside such a classy hotel, it still has the looks of a traditional Irish pub. The menu has quite a few of the classic Irish dishes - shepherds pie, steak sandwich, Irish chicken, Guinness pie - and the beers and whiskeys one would expect in an Irish pub. We stooped in just for dessert one night too, which hit the spot perfectly. However, even though the food is a little more pedestrian than the other restaurants at the Ritz, it is still noticeably more expensive than one would pay for the same items elsewhere (entrees tend to cost 18-23 Euro and desserts are 9 Euro each).

McGills is located inside of the Ritz Carlton at Powerscourt, just down the street from Enniskerry - about 3 km I believe. It is an Irish Pub with Guinness on tap and all of that. Food here was surprisingly excellent, but of course it is just pub food and not cheap pub food at about 22-26 Euros per plate. Our steak sandwich was extremely juicy and perfectly cooked, a caesar salad was very nice, and a Guinness meat pie was also very tasty. Service was stellar and polite.

The menu is not large, only about 8 items to choose from or so. Meat Pies, Fish n Chips, Shepherds Pie, Steak Sandwich, Hamburger, and a couple other things I forget, plus a few appetizers. The inside is a typical pub look, but of course very clean and well kept. Not many tables, and the ones there are have tall chairs and stools, plus a bar to sit at. There is a smokers lounge outside that is pretty cozy as well.

Modest establishment, but we had two good meals and nice times.
