Since two of my books, Santa To The Rescue and the upcoming Naturally Yours, feature firefighter and paramedic heroes from the fictional Appleton Fire Station, I thought it would be fun to have lunch at Molly Maguire’s Irish Pub in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. The restaurant was built in 2013 inside the original location of the Minquas Fire Company, established in 1908. I’m pleased to say that hubby and I enjoyed our visit.
The most striking features of Molly Maguire’s are the beautiful handcrafted bar and the storefront imported from Ireland. Inside the restaurant, firehouse mementoes grace original walls made of stone or plaster. Gleaming hardwood floors lead to dining rooms or semi-private alcoves where guests can relax in relative solitude. Hubby and I sat at a table in the main area by the bar. Our food was delicious and the service was excellent. Our server, Jessica, was pleasant and attentive. We will definitely return.
As I’ve shown many times on this blog, there’s always something fun to see and do in Pennsylvania. Here are pictures I took during our visit to Molly’s.
