The Kerry is a hole in the wall neighborhood Irish pub that makes you feel welcome the minute you step inside and sit at the bar surrounded by dollar bills posted on the wall. The bartender was witty and irreverent and kept a smile on my face and my Guinness glass filled. Many European travelers were visiting, which made for... More

Very laid back time spent chatting with the friendly bartender over drinks. It was a nice alternative to the noisier places on Bourbon for this occasion. There was no music the night we visited, but they seem to have a good set up for bands.

It is just a block away from The Quarter House Resort so I usually drop by when I am in New Orleans. It's a dive but I love it especially when they have musicians playing Irish music. Good place to get a pint of Guinness.

We stopped here on our way back to our hotel to have a few drinks with friends. The bartender who served us our drinks had an attitude. I asked for a napkin and he almost threw it at me. There was an issue with the money I left on the bar. The second bartender working goes around and clears the... More

I wish I could be one of the five star reviews but the bartender was VERY RUDE, so rude that I would have punched him in the face had I not been on my anniversary. I walked by and saw a video poker machine so put some money in and apparently there is a one drink minimum if you play... More

been here a few times in the afternoon and the bartender is just not engaging nor were there ever any other people in the place at those few times so I assume the daytime bartender is an issue; however the 4 of us did have fun shooting pool and cutting up, which seemed to irritate the bartender. do love the...

We stopped in a few times for a quick beer or drink during our four days. Generous pour. Friendly staff, and even had music one afternoon. We will definitely be back.

Came in to have a few drinks and watch the game. Great hard cider, relaxing and fun environment even though I was supporting the Packers over the Saints. About an hour into it I realized I hadn't eaten and was hungry though they do not serve food the bartender was able to recommend places that would deliver and I ended... More

Since my first visit in June of 1995, I have enjoyed the Kerry as often as possible, most notably before concerts at the house of blues down the street. Lynn is the best and the atmosphere and environment is second to none. I highly highly highly recommend this great nola establishment, you won't regret visiting!!!!!!

Stopped by for 3 consecutive nights, each with a different acoustic band. Two of the three nights were fantastic, and the third was not bad, just not one for getting the crowd going. On Friday night there was a band that took every request. There was dancing, singing, and plenty of fun people to enjoy. The Kerry also has, in... More
