We ate at this place while staying at the hotel. The service was the worst I think I ever experienced. The food was very typical pub pub nothing special.

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.

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

We ate at McGill's because we were staying at the Powerscourt Hotel. The food was fine and the bartenders were very good (really knew their beer and their high end whisky!), but in general, this is a created Irish Pub in a luxury resort, not...More

Had a quick dinner at the bar. They have a very large hamburger from Irish beef that was really tasty. Served with chips on a cutting board at the bar. Full bar service with lots of different Irish Whiskey to choose from. Of course, there...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.
