Corgans’ Publick House: Harrisonburg’s Only Irish Pub

If you are looking for a warm, inviting place to enjoy a delicious entrée of Bangers and Mash, washed down by a pint of Guinness, all while listening to a live musician play Irish tunes – then stop by one of the Burg’s newest restaurants – Corgans’ Publick House.

Conveniently located on Port Republic Road (in the 865 East building), Corgans’ offers a full bar and evening entertainment (to include live music and trivia nights). However, its main focus will be on excellent service and food. Corgans’ menu not only features traditional Irish fare including Cottage Pie, Fish n’ Chips, and Corned Beef and Cabbage, but also countless other pub favorites such as salads, burgers, reubens, pizza, & wings.

Corgans’ Publick House is the brainchild of Katharine Corgan, a 2006 JMU graduate, and her fiancé, Vito Pellerito, owner of Vito’s Italian Kitchen, located just down the hill from Corgans’. If you have dined at Vito’s then you already know the pair have mastered the art of owning a successful restaurant.

    Food, drinks, and staff are nice, just NOT worth the $215.00 price tag for Parking for under 3 hours!!!!

    Food, drink and atmosphere were fabulous. We loved this place. Very attentive servers and Katharine and Vito were every where. Don’t miss it!
