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

Low-key, traditional irish bar with live music. Spent new years eve there, and it was really enjoyable. Toilets are like most others in New Orleans, but offers plenty of interesting text for readers. We stumbled onto this place, but it has become a favourite in New Orleans.

It's nice to find a bar in the French Quarter that feels like a place you'd frequent at home. My husband loved that they have Harp on draught and the bartender and local patrons made for a fun time. We also got a great tip for a dinner spot. We'll definitely return the next time we're in New Orleans.

Wandered in here on suggestion from some of the other bartenders in the area. Great spot to stop in a grab a drink or two. No attitude and no drunk tourists. Seemed the low key local scene. Would be a regular if I lived in the area.

This pub is just across the street from the Bienville Hotel which when we visited had great live music.

We happened upon this pub by accident and I am glad we did. The bartender was Irish and a really interesting person. The drinks are cheap and it is a nice break from all of the chaos on Bourbon Street.

Nice atmosphere, and a fun bartender. If they had a small pub food menu it would get a higher rating. Worth a short visit if you are just trying to grab a couple beers

This pub is just on the edge of the quarter, and if the madness of Bourbon street gets too much then like we did you might like the Kerry. Reasonably priced and generously measured were had, and the band from Donegal of a chap on drums, and a boy and girl on guitar, the girl is the main singer -... More

I like this place. Yes, I'm a tourist, but it's nice to find a place that's mostly locals this close to the Quarter. Pretty non-descript outside - we would've walked by without the Haunted Bars app we were following. But the bartenders and clientele, of all ages, were friendly and fun.

We came here mid-afternoon so it was pretty quiet and no music was playing. We love Irish Pubs so we always try and stop in when we see one. It's definitely seen it's fair share of customers as everything looks well-worn... but kind of in a good way. All the drinks were good but Steve, the bartender, was not your... More
