May the Road Rise Up to Meet You

With authentic Irish and British Isles food made from scratch, a full bar, an extensive Irish and Scottish whisky menu, and a family-friendly atmosphere, McCarthy’s is THE place for a true Celtic experience in the Lehigh Valley. Created to preserve Irish family traditions and memories passed down through generations, it is a perfect place to celebrate life’s special events and everyday happenings.

let us tell you about granny mccarthy…

Many of our original recipes came from a bundle of handwritten notes from my mother’s handbag when she died, many other recipes came from family members or friends. Growing up in Lambeg, County Antrim any guest or visitor to my house had to be served a pot of tea and some kind of home baked treat.  My Granny McCarthy who did a lot of my rearing made sure I knew the proper way to make the tea and I was accustomed to providing hospitality even at an early age to anybody who came to my house.  The origins of hospitality and recipes used at McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub came from my upbringing, lessons and priorities I learned from my Mother and Grandmother.

Join us each month for our McCarthy’s Whiskey Tastings — an evening of fun, good spirits and whiskey lessons as we sample and learn from a variety of whiskey brand representatives.
