Karen, the bartender, is extremely calm under pressure. Between customers at the bar and waitresses filling orders for their table, she manages to tend to all requests. She is an amazing employee. My husband played in the Irish seisun. I had the meatloaf because others reviewers recommended it and my husband had the chicken pot pie. Excellent food with large... More

Unique place. So much to look at upon entering this restaurant. Lots of old knick knacks and memorabilia. Service was great and food terrific. Had a kids menu that pleased the kids. We sat in a room that had comfy chairs and a beautiful table with lots to entertain while waiting for dinner.

Loved Friday nights for a pint! Karen is best bartender in town and always a warm welcome when we walk in the door. Great outdoor space on a nice night. Very traditional Irish Pub Atmosphere, dancing and good music.

LOTS to look at on the walls, ceiling, and even the bathroom...photographs, old furniture, and signs to enjoy a pint. Great selection of beer, both local and traditional Irish choices. The meals are very hearty and incredible. Warm Irish hearth bread and butter to enjoy first...then homemade pot pots, stews, seafood, and sandwiches. I ordered the Chicken Pot Pie, which... More

This is a find worth seeking out. I had the Irish meatloaf. A huge portion but one of the best meat loaves I have had. Very tasty indeed. My wife had the warm peach salad with chicken and it was excellent as well Don't miss this gem in N. Conway

Trip advisor did not let us down. A truly unique experience. Recent visit visiting North Conway. Owner hostess makes you feel right at home and seats you, and checks on you and your experience. More memorabilia than you can look at, everywhere you look something interesting to see. We walked around after dinner to check out more. Service was excellent... More

We tried the Grilled Peach salad and the Meatloaf. Both the entrees were really good. Loved the décor of the place. It gives it a very nice cozy feel. Got some snaps of the old Irish items they have as decorations like the post office, old traditional shoes, old timey corn husking m/c, type-writer, old lanterns on the ceiling, old... More

Late one evening, after returning to town from a trip to the top of Mt. Washington, we were hungrily looking for a place to eat dinner. We had perused Tripadvisor for the best-rated restaurants, but had ruled out May Kelly's because we equated "Irish food" with just the traditional pub standbys, and have never been huge fans. Well, getting hungrier... More
