Irish Pubs in London The Mighty10

Seven Kings | Harrow

| Crouch End


The first McCafferty’s Traditional Irish Bar opened in The Diamond in Donegal Town in 2016, with three more openings in 2018. Two of these three bars opened in the UK in North Harrow and Epsom, while the third bar opened in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal.

All of McCaffertys bars have a warm and welcoming traditional Irish pub atmosphere that is popular with both locals and tourists alike. Each venue offers live authentic Irish music 7 nights a week! From a pint to a cocktail, from events to birthdays, McCafferty's offer such great quality and service you’ll keep coming back for more!

The  Porterhouse 
Covent Garden

The Porterhouse opened in the heart of Covent Garden back in 2000. Since then, they have been pouring pints of their award-winning craft beers, showcasing some of London’s best live music and screening all major sporting events, particularly rugby, to customers from all over the world.

The Porterhouse might be one of the largest bars in London, but it does not always feel that way.  The bar is split over three main levels, with a number of mezzanine levels in between as well as an extensive outdoor terrace area.

Let the fast pace of London pass you by as you sit and drink a pint of Plain Porter, sip on a cocktail, watch your favourite team in action on one of the many screens or dance the night away to the live band.

Faltering Fullback Guinness_edited.jpg

You never forget the Faltering Fullback... so long as you go fully to the back. We like this place so much that we nominated it among our 10 favourites in London.
It's a pub of many parts. Cut your way through the tangled ivy, and the small entrance bar looks like a typical locals' boozer, but with its ceiling decked out with a peculiar collection of sporting memorabilia. This leads to a slightly larger seating area. Then, through the doors, you find a large and dimly lit hall, kitted out for mass crowds to watch the sport (or play on the pool table and pinball).

The real prize lurks out the back. The Faltering Fullback has, quite simply, London's most amazing beer garden. It's one big happy treehouse, built on different levels.

Stoke Wembley

The Auld Shillelagh opened in 1991 it was just a tiny pub consisting of the bar, some bar stools and a single toilet with a dart board on the door.

Over 20 years have passed and the pub is now 3 times longer with a beer garden out the back that faces the sun for most of the day. They have live music every week and show all the major sporting events on multiple big screens.

They also still take pride in looking after our beers, the Guinness is regularly touted by reviewers and customers alike as the best in north London, the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming and they claim would put their bar staff up against the best of them.

The Rising Sun
City of London

The Rising Sun Carter Lane City of London

The Rising Sun, a pub at 61 Carter Lane, is a Grade II listed building built in the early/mid-19th century. One of London's few independent pubs and owned and run by Sheila Dixon. Great selection of booze served with friendly and fast service. They play the big sports matches on the TV - World Cup/Six Nations etc. There's seating indoors and outdoors (with heaters and blankets available, just ask nicely at the bar) and when it's busy the street is filled with customers as it's a popular ''after-work'' spot for many. It has a nice menu and also a space for private hire for events.
