After reading the hype about this pub we were expecting something great but we were disappointed. The food was alright but definitely nothing special and the place was freezing too. The girl said the aircon took a while to heat up! Wouldn’t be in a...More

Called in for a pint here while waiting for a wedding to kick off. Reluctantly left after two pints. Great Guinness, friendly staff and good crowd.

We enjoyed our visits to Mc Gills while staying at Powerscourt. The servers were nice but a bit slow in responding

McGills, the pub in the Powerscourt Hotel is a delightful place for supper and your favorite beverages. The Fish and Chips are fresh, and tasty. Prices are average for Ireland. Go early, as it gets very busy in the evening.

Enjoyed a meal here on recent visit and found the staff very accommodating even with the pub full. Ordered fish & chips which were excellent.

The pub in the Hotel isn't great. Expensive but that's cos you're in a superb hotel. So you'd have thought the bar menu would at least be reasonable able. Big portions don't make it a good experience. If you're caught and not dining in Sika,...More

Upon entering McGills you could easily be mistaken for thinking you are in any Irish pub instead of a typical bar in a five star hotel. The bar food menu offers great variety and excellent presentation. Lots of nooks and seats add to the charm.

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.
