Join us for Happy Hour Monday-Friday from 4:30pm to 7:00pm! 1/2 off drafts - $1 off bottles and a handful of appetizers for $5


Twelve years ago, when you looked at 2nd Street, one thing was missing – the Irish pub. Recognizing this void in Harrisburg nightlife we decided to bring downtown Harrisburg its first authentic Irish pub. Established in 2002, McGrath’s has quickly become a favorite among locals and those looking for a place to sit down, enjoy warm conversation and relax on 2nd Street.

At McGrath’s you’ll find that welcoming feeling found only when people come together to celebrate around good food and drink. As we like to say here, McGrath’s is always Greener! So join us for a good meal, a pint of your favorite brew and that comfortable, cozy atmosphere that makes the Irish pub so popular around the world.

Welcome and Failte,
Tom and Amy Scott, Proprietors
