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

The Powerscourt Hotel itself was and amazing place. We had dinner one night in McGills. It was a perfect Irish Pub. I had Bangers and Mash. Great Irish take on the English delight! We'll be back when we come next time!

This is a great pub inside the powerscourt hotel. It has live entertainment many nights; the cost is reasonable and food is fantastic. The bartender, Ross, is ranked as one of the best in the country. Highly recommend the Old Fashioned

Nice to visit McGill's again on our latest visit. Nice selection of beer though I did have one obligatory Guinness. The bar manager - Ian Smith - is still there celebrating 5 years at Powerscourt. He has an excellent knowledge of the whiskeys he has...More

Had some beers in the bar which to me has the look of a bar that was built to appear to tourists, especially U.S tourists. The craft beer on offer was excellent. The prices were high but the staff were friendly. While we didn't dine...More

I ate here recently and the food was rather bland and tasteless. The calamari starter was poor as was the main of fish and chips. The hotel is quite pretentious but it's food just fails to deliver. I felt sorry for the staff having to...More

Nice quaint pub located on the lower level of the hotel. Not the best pub food but not really the worse. They do lack more traditional Irish fare other than fish and chips (that's English, isn't it?)

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.
