McGuire’s Irish Pub in Fort Walton Beach –
Located at 33-US98 in Destin
Resembling a rambling country farmhouse from the outside, the giant green McGuire Irish Pub‘s sign and shamrock over the entrance makes it an easy building to spot from afar. On the inside, wood and stain glass is the décor for the day, giving it the appearance of a country church—until you look closer at the “decorations” on the walls and realize they are cabinets that hold dozens and dozens and dozens of delicious wines for your sipping pleasure! A room papered in dollar bills and covered with pictures and signs from the old country, a private brewery, and smiling waitstaff just waiting to pour the perfect Guinness for you complete the perfect picture of your new favorite Irish pub!
McGuire Irish Pub in Fort Walton Beach is one of the best places in Destin to go to when you’re really hungry and very thirsty.
