Cape Restaurant, Liam Maguire’s Irish Pub Features Great Food, Relaxed Atmosphere and Great Craic
We went to Liam’s a recently. Falmouth is home to the one and only Liam Maguire’s Irish Pub. Established in 1994 by Liam and Deborah Maguire, the pub quickly became a local favorite and, of course, the center of celebrations on St. Patrick’s Day.
“Liam, raised in Castle Derg, Co Tyrone, has traveled Europe, Canada, and the United Sates as a professional entertainer for over thirty years. His rich baritone voice captivates audiences and draws even the most reluctant participant in with lively pub songs.” The entertainment at Liam’s features regular bands, Irish music and quiz nights year round.
Our bartender for the evening was Rory, he is 6’6″ and is Liam and Deb’s older son. He makes the best Irish coffee – not too bitter, not too sweet, and just the right kick
The menu at this Cape restaurant includes all the favorite pub grub you expect from Nachos and Potato Skins, to Fish & Chips and shepherd’s pie. They also feature a few twists on old favorites like Gaelic Grille Cheese and Grilled Salmon Sandwiches. Whenever my daughter comes to visit she insists on stopping by for a pint and a bowl of beef stew.
The restaurant has delicious “sweet potato fries” and we really like the “Irish egg rolls.”
Last year a family of 6 adults checked into the inn. Their first question was, “Where can we get a great lobster roll?” I suggested Liam’s. They were very pleased and were still talking about their feast at breakfast the following morning.
Liam’s is located on Main Street, just a short stroll from the Palmer House.

While all of our rooms have their own individual charm, we recommend the Harriet Beecher Stowe room or the Emily Dickinson room. Both rooms feature comfortable king beds, fireplaces, jacuzzi-style tubs and a relaxing stay before and after the pub.
