Drinks are plentiful; food is amazing, staff is great! The atmosphere is perfect for a hotel like the Powerscourt. Authentic Irish Pub.

Had a pricey menu for pub food but ambiance made up for pricing. We were there for pints only. Bar tenders and servers very friendly. Nice music.

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.

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.
