Wilmington visitors who are touring the downtown area’s famed Cotton Exchange can whet an appetite for a cold drink, a hearty lunch, or a decadent dinner with a visit to Paddy’s Hollow. Featuring an authentic brick-lined atmosphere that’s perfect for large meals, and a full menu that boasts everything from burgers to pub grub, Paddy’s Hollow is a crowd-pleaser that can cater to all sized-appetites (and especially big ones.)

The menu goes on for multiple pages, and boasts a wide selection of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, seafood, and even pizza-style flat breads. There’s also a nice array of steaks and ribs, pastas, chicken specialties, and combination platters, like steak and shrimp, or ribs, chicken and sausage. Newcomers will have a hard time making a decision, and may want to save plenty of room for a multi-course, and heaping meal. Start with an appetizer, soup, or fresh salad, like the creamy crab bisque with sherry, or the sautéed little neck clams, and top it off with a big sandwich, like the Chipotle Chicken Sub, or an Irish pub specialty, like the Shepard’s Pie or the Guinness Braised Corned Beef. When partnered with a local or imported draft beer, the fare at Paddy’s Hollow will leave every diner stuffed and satisfied.

Wrightsville Beach Vacation Rentals

Wrightsville Beach Vacation Rentals

While Wrightsville Beach has a collection of hotels and motels, the primary type of accommodations in this region are vacation rentals. There are literally hundreds of vacation rentals in the town of Wrightsville Beach, which are scattered throughout the landscape and are found along the oceanfront, soundfront, and in between waterfront regions in the interior section of the island. Because of the sheer geography of this skinny barrier island, guests in vacation rentals will never be far from the town’s top attractions, which include the local beaches, the waterfront boasting, fishing, and paddling scenes, and the variety of shops and restaurants that are found throughout the area.
