A Rich Irish Tradition

As the sister restaurant to The Irish Inn at Glen Echo, Lahinch opened in April of 2016, bringing culinary excellence and good cheer to Potomac, Maryland. Lahinch prides itself in offering American Regional Cuisine along with a unique twist on Traditional Irish dishes with Chef Ted Hughes at the helm. We are quickly becoming a neighborhood favorite among locals.


Executive Chef and General Manager

Ted’s passion for quality, farm-fresh ingredients began early in his life as he grew up living on a small farm in Upstate New York. After landing a job in a French restaurant in college, Ted switched his major from Chemistry to Food and Hotel Management. Paris, France was not far behind where he worked and educated himself in Classical French Cuisine. From there, he traveled many places including Napa Valley, California, Amman, Jordan and Puerto Rico, finally settling in Northern Virginia. Ted’s experiences working under many world-class chefs gives him a well-rounded education in the amazing diversity and history of what is now considered to be “Modern Cuisine.”


Lahinch is perfect for a low key day – brunch, lunch, or dinner! There’s dining and bar, so you can pick which atmosphere fits your desire. Bartenders are funny and attentive, and the food is made with love (not kidding). We feel welcome every time we come!
