About this Business
From Our Editors
Though Dublin may be an ocean away, a perfect three-pour pint of Guinness can be found right in Franklin, Tennessee. A talented bartender at McCreary's Irish Pub & Eatery will even slide you a frosty imperial pint with a Celtic symbol drawn into the foam so you can marvel at a four-leaf clover or a full Yeats verse before taking a sip. The Irish lore doesn't stop at the beer—a complete menu of shepherd's pie, corned beef and cabbage, and signature fish ‘n’ chips fits right in with the rustic decor of Irish maps and vintage posters. On weekends, live bands play bouncy Irish music as diners chat at communal tables and feast on housemade soda bread or plates of whiskey-glazed salmon. Traditional Irish breakfasts, another weekend treat, rouse sleepy stomachs with steel-cut oats kissed with brown sugar or gargantuan ulster fry plates packed with bangers, bacon, corned beef, eggs, potatoes, and black-and-tan bread.
