Wish I could go there more often

The Irish Cottage is a cozy, but incredibly hospitable, eating and food establishment in the heart of Forest Hills. The food is always prepared well and the staff are always courteous. The first time I went there, in 2009 when I first moved in the neighborhood, the bartender was very generous with the buybacks and even asked my party if we wanted to accompany him to the nearby Tap Room for more brews, since we closed the bar. I have been back many times for drinks and food and have always enjoyed a well made Shepard's Pie and an expertly drawn Guinness Stout. My only regret is that my early A.M. work schedule in Manhattan keeps me away for this excellent restaurant.

I miss the Cottage

I just found this while looking around on line. I used to love to go there 25 years ago when I moved from Arkansas to New York as a Nanny. Paschal was the bartender then and I made so many Irish friends. Miss Katleen McNaulty is awesome and I wonder how she is doing. The last I heard Kevin was on The Fireman's Calendar. Wow, what memories. I remember they would all stand when "The Town I Loved so Well" would come on the juke box. The food was awesome and they were like a family away from home! I spent alot of nights here hanging out with these wonderful people!
