The food was okay and the pints were well poured. The service was a little slow, but the place was packed and the restaurant wait staff and bar keep did their best to keep up. Atmosphere was lively.

Dropped in for a bite. Initially, thought level of service a bit slow. Venue wasn't very busy, but we were assisted by four different servers. Perhaps this is the norm? Salad with chicken and chunky chips were great! Chicken was flavourful and moist. Nachos...well, they...More

McGills is a pub, located at Powers Court Hotel. It's not your run of the mill hotel eatery, rather an authentic Irish Pub that the locals still gather at nightly. Their fish and chips are hot and fresh and one portion could easily feed two....More

On a visit to the Powerscourt Gardens, we stopped off for some lunch before our walk around and were not disappointed. My falafel burger was delicious and one of the most 'meaty' vegetarian burgers I've ever had. My partner's steak was great. The service was...More

This Irish pub is more than a name or an address: it embodies a spirit of friendly congeniality, a culture of conversation and story. McGill's manifests this magnificently, full of interesting artefacts and memorabilia, with a wonderful bar, made for elbows. As well as a fine selection of whiskeys, beers and stouts, McGill's offers a tasty menu of wholesome, traditional dishes, prepared and served with imagination and style.
