Love it! A River Street Must and the prices are lower than most in the area

If you're trying to decide on one of the many places to eat on River Street, give Kevin Barry's a shot. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Just remember it's a pub, not a fancy restaurant.

My friend and I were recommended to a great Irish bar, and Kevin Barry's was the place that came to mind. We had some of the BEST onion rings we ever had and the pretzels and beer cheese sauce were delicious. Upstairs (definitely recommended over downstairs), there is a great view of the waterfront!

We ended going two nights in a row because of the fun music and friendly staff. The nights we were there they had a solo guitar Irish singer and he was a blast! The staff was very nice and they would always stop by to check on you.

We just walked in, sat at the bar, and stayed a while. We were on our one-year anniversary trip, and we had honeymooned the year before in Ireland. Sitting at the bar in this dungeon-y place listening to live Irish music felt like being in Ireland again. The bartender was friendly enough, and we stayed for several drinks. We went... More

My wife and I stayed at the Bohemian next door and went to this pub one night. They had a solo singer from Ireland who was great! The beer was good and reasonably priced and we enjoyed our corned beef sandwich. As with all of the buildings on the river this place had a great historic feel to it. Try... More

Went here on a tip from a Ranger's family we met by chance. My father-in-law was a Ranger as well, so the second floor was an incredible place to see-- it's a wall to wall memorial for fallen soldiers, Rangers specifically. Very cool and very moving. Bar itself was a nice Irish standard; beer selection was good, food was excellent.... More
