DELICIOUSNESS.

We were ravenous after hiking all day, followed by scouring the outlets for deals. The beef stew, shepherd's pie, and strawberry shortcake filled the gaping holes in our bellies. (No way we could finish it all!!) We will be back for sure.

I am a very frequent visitor to this wonderful gem of a restaurant in the Mt Washington Valley of North Conway, NH. The owners, Mary and Paddy always make me feel like family. Mary serves as the hostess and will greet each and every one with a cheery smile as she escorts you to your table. Food is always plentiful... More

This very popular place is not to be missed. The pub food is excellent and portions are generous. The bartender was happy to custom-make a drink using our idea and her imagination, and a wide variety of Irish libations is available.

My wife and I enjoyed dinner here on our vacation. It's like a museum of antique's. I really enjoyed just walking around looking at all the classic antiques! She loved her Sheppards pie. I got ribs and chicken. Just ok. Next time I'll get something more traditional. Looking forward to going back next year.

Loved it! I ordered the grilled portabella mushroom sandwich along with the French fries. Everything was absolutely delicious. Service was perfect! Everyone was so kind and attentive. Adored the décor too! It was an unforgettable experience. Eat here and you won't regret it.

A very animated place to eat, May Kelly's Cottage has it all - delicious food, including freshly baked bread, unique decor, attentive wait staff and servers, and - of course - Guinness on draft. Slainte!

This place is a gem. The food was great. Calves liver cooked perfectly. Shepherd's pie out of this world. The feeling is comfortable and homelike. The service was both friendly and efficient. Do not miss a chance to try this place.
