This is a great watering hole! The patio is comfortable and quiet (when music is not playing!) The Staff is friendly and accommodating. The selection of Irish beers is good. the general atmosphere in the bar is welcoming.

Cool bar with a total Irish atmosphere and what I consider a soccer bar. They don't serve food but you are encouraged to bring your own or have something delivered. Outside area with tables and corn hole.

if you've been to an urban irish bar, then you know what to expect. Rustic decor, definitely intended to look older than it is. Irish bartenders and Irish food/drinks. You'll get that here. While the drinks are slightly over-priced, they are very good. Its worth a stop, and know that this place gets VERY crowded on Thurs/Fri nights (and some... More

Went with a group after just arriving to town for a party later that eve. We wanted a late lunch and drinks before the evening, so it was empty (3pm) and the staff was busy preparing for the assumed Friday after work crowds. One understandable negative, the waitress was not as present as desired, but all good. My black and... More

For me, this is the best Irish pub in Charlotte. The staff (bartenders) are very friendly and quick with a joke. Also, they remember repeat customers so you always feel welcome and at home. And, most importantly, they pour an outstanding Guinness!

This and RiRa hold the Irish title in mid town Charlotte. RiRa has better furnishings. Connolly's seems to have a younger and a more fun crowd. Can't go wrong either place

Standard Irish pub - Guinness and Harp on tap, good music- pretty tame crowd of twenty-something's and a few of us 'elders' - 30's-40's. One downfall is the single bathroom. Such a cliché to wait in a long line at the ladies room! Overall, good place to enjoy a drink and people-watch.

We happened to have a few nights out at this wonderful pub. It has a certain rustic charm and serves a wonderful pint of Guiness. It is a drinks only pub and it reminds me of the pubs in Dublin as it has a great atmosphere while not being trendy in anyway. We had Irish barmen serve us which added... More
