Mackey’s Public House
Mackey’s Irish bar and restaurant offers a sense of Ireland, and of Dublin’s public houses in particular, in the heart of Washington DC. We carry some of Ireland’s finest beers, such as Guinness and Smithwick’s, and our menu offers a mix of traditional Irish dishes and saloon favorites.
The atmosphere is warm and inviting, with a combination of small, private areas to appeal to those seeking a small, intimate space, and more open areas for people looking for a more bustling atmosphere.
The main bar area is decorated in the style that was popular in Dublin in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with dark wood and comfortable bar stools. On one side there is a room with booths and “snugs”, which are small areas with a table and a few chairs or benches partly enclosed by partitions of wood and frosted glass to give the occupants a measure of privacy. At the back is a big open space decorated in the style of an old Irish country farmhouse with a fireplace and tables and chairs.
