I love coming here and enjoying a nice pint while listening to Irish music. It's a quaint place, unfortunately full of obnoxious people who lack the courtesy that the musicians deserve. Despite the din from the large table next to me, we had an enjoyable time.

Kevin B ary's Irish Pub is right along the river in Savannah. Has that real Irish pub ambience. Great selection of craft beers. Bartenders were friendly and welcoming. They often have live music and the night we were there they had a solo singer from Belfast, Ireland performing and playing his guitar. He asked for requests from the audience and... More

CataldoRiley Thank you so much for your wonderful review! Kids are welcome during the day as we like to show off the Hall of Heroes upstairs to our younger generation.

This was our second visit to Kevin Barry's Irish Pub. The food is good and the evening entertainment can't be beat. Brendan Nolan of Southwest Florida was a fantastic irish singer and we plan on returning to Kevin Barry's each time we are in Savannah.

Server less than welcoming. I've been going there for years and she was the least friendly. Liked? What's not to like about a pint of Guinness served at the right temperature?

We love Savannah and living in Charleston, SC, (which we also love), we enjoy Irish and English pubs. We always hang out here for the food, music, and people. Excellent staff, bartenders, the food is good too. Highly encourage you to pop in when in town.
