We just stopped in to try a new place for a few snacks at lunch. So glad we did! While not looking for a full meal, the appetizer samplers we ordered were a meal in themselves, and then some. Loved the beef stew and ribs!...More

Delicious and abundant food, decor and atmosphere very much like pubs in Ireland. Our favourite place to eat in North Conway!

I have lost track of how many times I have nudged past this restaurant in traffic, but never went inside. This restaurant is truly five stars. Amazing fresh homemade fare as only a family owned and operated establishment can provide.

I have been to May Kelly's many times and have loved every visit. True Irish dishes with plenty of American dishes sprinkled in. The Guinness they pour is by far the best in the valley.

Enjoyed dinner at May Kelly's last week. Food and service were excellent. For appetizer we had a sampler where we tasted stew, chicken pot pie, and shepherds pie and another was spare ribs. All were incredible. The bread pudding for desert was a fabulous ending...More

This restaurant is true Irish cuisine. Bangers and mash taste just like you get in Ireland. Make sure you pick a good day and get a table on the back deck. Great view and great food! The food here is awesome, and the Irish owner...More

We where recommended May Kellys by the ButtonWood Inn by our hosts. And everything they said about it was true. The food was delicious and the atmosphere made you feel like you where in Ireland at one of the pubs. Definitely recommend visiting them for...More

This is a moderately priced restaurant. An average priced meal runs around $15, some higher some lower. Obviously, beef dishes are higher.
