We only stopped by for a Irish coffee, but enjoyed it nonetheless. Served in a glass, as is proper, it was a very enjoyable cup.

Boring, dingy bar that reeks of try hard, calling it Irish is an insult! Poor service (or no service, more like), and nasty tasting pints that any Irish person would return. This bar preys on patrons that don't know any better, I suspect.

Fabulous place to stop on a chilly, rainy evening. Really enjoyed the Whisky Minstrels (live music duo). Love that the music started early enough in the evening to enjoy a late dinner (9 pm). Good Irish red, excellent cheese plate, and tried a delicious Farl...More

Stop in at Kells for a pint and you will feel like you are at a neighborhood pub in Ireland. The patrons are very friendly and the bar staff efficient.
