MacCarthys Bar has been family run since 1860. We are a traditional bar and grocery shop, packed with old world charm, and hospitality. Enjoy the craic with our regular music sessions!
We offer a bar food menu-try our famous crab sandwiches or seafood chowder, all freshly prepared and local.
There is plenty to see, as we are full of memorabilia of the bar in days gone by! You can relive the ‘Pete McCarthy moment’ in the doorway, or read about our heroic father.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Irish Pub of the Year 2016!
