Enjoy a Guinness at McCreary's Irish Pub & Eatery in Franklin TNI have a confession to make. I love Guinness Stout Beer. I'm quite certain the love affair started when I visited Ireland for my son's wedding in 2001. I stayed for about a week touring the country, staying at bed and breakfasts, and visiting Pubs. But that's another adventure story all by itself!

I was delighted to find a little bit of Ireland in Franklin TN at McCreary's Irish Pub and Eatery located at 414 Main Street in the heart of historic, downtown Franklin.

Enjoy a Guinness at McCreary's Irish Pub & Eatery in Franklin TNIt's a cozy place where one feels at home immediately upon entering. It's warm and friendly and is one of my favorites. It's the sort of place you can pop into after a day of shopping or just hang out while your spouse is shopping! It's packed with families on a Saturday night with everone enjoying the food and atmosphere.

One lazy afternoon I sat with one of my sons eating Fish and Chips during the 3 PM to 6 PM Happy Hour (for draughts) reliving our Ireland experience. It was so much fun!

Enjoy a Guinness at McCreary's Irish Pub & Eatery in Franklin TNTheir food options are amazing and varied. They offer everything from Shepherd's Pie and the aforementioned Fish and Chips, to incredible Corned Beef and Cabbage. It's an extensive menu of both Irish and American food (they have fabulous burgers!).

If Guinness is not your favorite, they also offer Harp Irish Lager and Smithwick's Irish Ale on draught. The collection of other beers and ales is extensive.

Give McCreary's Irish Pub and Eatery a try. You won't be disappointed!

Franklin, Tennessee's Dickens of a Christmas - Another Great Event
Franklin & Brentwood, TN Homes Mike Nastri - Rodney Kennedy, It matters to us as much as it matters to you. (Keller Williams Realty)

Franklin, Tennessee's Dickens of a Christmas

Too good to miss.  Of the dozen or so Franklin festivals Dickens of a Christmas is my favorite.  Perhaps it is because I have fond memories of the annual "A Christmas Carol" play by Dickens throughout my school years or the many wonderful renditions of this story, including the one that featured Mr. Magoo as Scrooge.  But of all the Christmas stories after the Nativity, this one rings true to me.  

While walking around historic downtown Franklin is always heartwarming. It is exciting at the same time.  We still need a fresh market so Scrooge can order up the Christmas goose for the Cratchits after his ghostly transformation.  Yet everything else is perfect for what is arguably the best Dickens fest this side of the Atlantic. 

If you come to downtown Franklin this weekend, enjoy the sights, the sounds, the smells, and the food.  Be be sure to have a fried doughnut (my favorite treat), whether it is with hot coffee, chocolate or spiced cider.  If you can't make it to downtown, please enjoy the the slides from Dickens of a Christmas past below.

If you happen to be viewing this blog from afar and want to move to Middle Tennessee, or Franklin be sure to follow the links to Homes for Sale.  You can find them there in all sizes and price ranges.

For you and yours during this season remember Tiny Tim's blessing, "God bless us, every one!"
