Fionn MacCools Irish Pub & Restaurant Is Opening In Nocatee
Fionn MacCools Irish Pub & Restaurant, a locally owned authentic Irish pub located on the waterfront in downtown Jacksonville, is opening a second location in Nocatee in mid December.
Fionn MacCools first opened in Jacksonville Beach in 2005, before relocating to a 200-seat waterfront location at the Jacksonville Landing in 2011. The new 150-seat Nocatee location will be opening in December at the Shoppes of St Johns Oaks on 145 Hilden Rd.
Fionn mac Cumhaill or “Finn McCool” is known for being a great warrior in Irish myths. He was the greatest leader of the Fianna, an elite military clan responsible for the protection of the High King of Ireland. Fionn implemented a code of honor into the Fianna; which had a reputation for being somewhat unruly. Another legend includes Fionn as a giant, creating the Giant’s Causeway, a peculiar series of volcanic rock formations along the coast of Ireland. He did this to challenge a Scottish giant to a fight and allow passage from Scotland to Ireland.
Fionn MacCool's brings a bit of Ireland to the Jacksonville area. With their authentic Irish food, live entertainment, and friendly atmosphere, their Irish pub has the recipe you've been looking for.
