McCarthy's Great Room
Booking Information

McCarthy's Great Room rack card

Our event Great Room, located on our second floor, is modeled on a medieval banquet space from a castle in Ireland or Scotland...even the wood flooring is recycled old-growth American pine (growing since the 1500's) that went to Ireland on an empty immigration ship (coffin ship) at the time of the potato famine. Recycled from an old house that was being torn down in Ireland, it was milled and brought back to America to serve beneath the feet of our patrons. 

Catering many private parties, rehearsal dinners, bridal or baby showers, and corporate events, we specialize in Celtic cuisine, but our chef can help you with the selections you need for the perfect event. Our second floor Great Room was also recently renovated to offer a full-bar/pub experience for your guests. Please see below for our current banquet menus, or call 610.861.7631 to speak with our chef. 

For entertainment we have access to harpists, pipers, fiddlers, and dancers to help make your event a truly cultural experience. The room is also equipped with a nice sound system, drop-down screen and projector, or large-screen television for your use
