My wife is Irish and we had a blast here. Very friendly staff and eclectic atmosphere. The beef stew was fantastic, Thick, hearty and with great flavor. The potato cakes were easily the best we have ever eaten. I had the Irish meatloaf and it was like no other meatloaf. Very thick, great crust and not dry.

We had dinner here based on other Tripadvisor reviews and it lived up to the hype. Excellent food, good service and a very fun atmosphere. Be sure to try the key lime pie and the Bailey's Irish Cream cheesecake!

Ate there a total of 3 times this week. The food is always great, never an off day. Service is always prompt and courteous. May, the owner, remembers you from previous visits. Our new favorite in North Conway.

As a local realtor in the Mt Washington Valley I get to many of the restaurants in town. However, in 2014 business we rarely take clients out to dinner. This was the exception. I went out to dinner with my family (wife and 8yr old son) and my 2 clients that had recently purchased a condo here in the area... More

We went there as it was number one on trip advisor. Must say was a bit disappointed as we walked in as the carpet has a musty smell. Service was excellent and my main course of ribs was ok, but much better than anything else we had in North Conway. The sides were poor, but the Irish sampler consisting of... More

I saw the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and was certainly not disappointed. We had the butternut squash soup of the day with their wonderful whole grain homemade bread and it was delicious. Then I had chicken pot pie and my grandson had the beef stew. They were both huge servings and soooo yummy. The waitress was very attentive and... More

My husband and I tried to get in twice, on the 2nd time we were early enough to get a table. The restaurant is so charming. Love the decor, and the food was delicious. I had the corned beef and cabbage and husband had the Chicken Pot Pie. Both meals were generous portions and delicious. Service was good and they... More

Menu was more limited than the non special menu but had plenty of choices for us at any rate. Interestingly if we wanted bread that was an additional dollar. The bread was excellent. Pay the buck. I had the Mays Potato cakes for starter. They were wonderful.. Hubby had a garlic soup which was good but not as good as... More

This busy restaurant was worth the wait. The owner, Mary, was busy seating customers and making sure you feel welcome and enjoy your dinner. We ordered the Chicken Pot Pie and it was delicious. Loaded with white meat chicken and lots of vegetables and potatoes. Topped with flakey puffed pastry. We enjoyed our meal. The night we were there they... More

Looking for a casual night out and came across May Kelly's. To be honest, I was just hoping for a decent burger. May's does not look like much from the outside but inside it is bursting with atmosphere and good food. May has a couple of specialities and I strongly recommend the Beef Stew and the fried Cakes. I am... More
