Halligans Public House is a surprising find in the primarily residential community along Masonboro Loop Road. Found within a small commercial center, this traditional Irish Pub is a fun destination for hungry families, Happy Hour patrons, night owls, and everyone in between.

The first place to start at this Irish Pub is the bar menu, where brew lovers will find a nice array of imported, domestic, and microbrew varieties, both bottled and on tap. Then it’s on to the wide range of starters, salads and soups, which will appease any Super bowl-sized appetite with specialties like Fighting Irish nachos with kettle chips, Boxty potato pancakes, and buffalo fried shrimp. The starters are filling enough, but hungry patrons will want to save room for the main course, which includes a wealth of sandwiches and wraps, burgers, and entrees. For something Irish-inspired, go for the Paddy Melt burger with grilled onions, Swiss cheese, and 1000 island dressing on rye, or try one of the traditional Irish pub entrees like the Shepard’s Pie, the fish and chips, or Bangers & Mash served with Colcannon Potatoes & Irish Whiskey Gravy. Perfect for a craving for filling food and a pint or two, Halligans Public House is a casual taste of Ireland in a quiet corner of the Cape Fear area.

Bijou Park

Bijou Park

Bijou Park is a hidden gem of a "blink and you'll miss it" attraction in Wilmington, and is a perfect spot for weary shoppers and strollers to find a quiet bench, stretch out their legs, and relax. Located in a rare gap in between downtown buildings on 225 N Front St, the park straddles the heart of Downtown Wilmington and a Riverfront parking area, but the section in between is quiet, peaceful, and buffered from the sound of the downtown traffic by the two tall but historic buildings on either side.
