What defines a great Irish Pub and Restaurant? Is it the authentic Irish fare, like Sheppard’s Pie, a robust Corned Beef with Cabbage, or Fish & Chips served on newspaper?

Maybe it’s a perfect pour of Guinness right to the top of the pint glass? Or simply a proper Jameson on ice?

Some may say it's the perfect pub atmosphere, a bit dark, warm and inviting.

But we say, aside from being a great gastropub, with the live match on the telly, besides having a great selection of draught beer on tap, in addition to live music, trivia and karaoke… it’s got to be a friendly gathering place for neighbors and friends to meet and discuss the news of the day. Come discover HopLite. We’re all that and more. Bringing a bit of the blarney to Pleasure Island.

No need to travel to Ireland for a perfect pint of Guinness. You can get one properly poured right here in Carolina Beach. You would be called an Irish Pub without a proper Guinness or Black & Tan.
