Lahinch Tavern and Grill’s final day of service will be on Monday, May 30. The restaurant will be hosting a “Lahinch’s Last Waltz” event that day starting at 3pm. The restaurant posted the following message on their social media accounts: “Lahinch’s Last Waltz | We are sad to announce that Monday, May 30th will be Lahinch’s last day open. We had a great run these past six years, but as with most others in the food and music industry, COVID took a big toll and we must say farewell. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us! We hope to see you in these next two weeks, and say goodbye in style—come out for our last night with our last Monday night Blues Jam, music starts at 7pm”
Lahinch opened at at 7747 Tuckerman Ln (Cabin John Village) in Potomac in April 2016, replacing Benny’s Bar, and is owned by the same family that has operated The Irish Inn at Glen Echo since 2003. According to its website, Lahinch offered American regional cuisine along with a unique twist on traditional Irish dishes by Chef Ted Hughes. Menu items include fish & chips, Shepherd’s Pie, corned beef, lamb chops, and steak.
Lahinch is located in the Cabin John Village shopping center that is also home to the recently opened Pretzel Bakery, Colada Shop, Shake Shack, and Sisters Thai. Broadway Pizza, which was located at 7965 Tuckerman Ln in the shopping center, closed in December 2021 after announcing that the shopping center had decided not to renew the restaurant’s lease. Baskin Robbins closed its Cabin John Village location in February.
