First time visitor to Kevin Barry's and will definitely go back. Atmosphere is good. I didn't find it to be particularly Irish from a visual standpoint but the menu and live music certainly is. (The piped in music is not-which is ok by me). We sat at the bar and the live music is easily heard. It is really fun... More

Rob P Thank you for stopping by Kevin Barry's Irish Pub cited by ABC News as a Top 5 Irish Pub to Visit. We hope, that as a local, you come back and join us again. I think the reason Kevin Barry's Irish Pub doesn't visually appear to be an Irish Pub is because, well, it is not actually in... More

We had a great time at this Irish Pub. Carroll Brown was our entertainer and he made the time fly by with his cheerful attitude and fun songs. The young lady who waited on us seemed new to the job.

We happened upon this spot after arriving to Savannah around midnight. The bartender (Brian) was like a breath of fresh air and took great care of us! We ordered the Irish sampler (Beef Stew, Corned Beef & Cabbage, and Shepherd's Pie) and it was delightful. We sampled a few Irish whiskeys and had the pleasure of indulging in the Irish... More

We went for dinner and we ate upstairs. The food was very good. The waitress was wonderful and the view was gorgeous. The Irish stew and shepherd's pie were excellent. The atmosphere was so nice and so were the people.

We popped in here when walking along River Street for a quick lunch. My friend couldn't stop raving about her chicken panini and fries. I had the fried chicken salad and a bloody mary. The salad was fine and was a lunch portion so it was on the smaller side and I could have gone for a bit more. The... More

Three of us stopped in for lunch hoping for some authentic Irish good. Unfortunately it was typical American pub fare with some Irish names. Ordered sausage rolls that had been reheated and over cooked. The Irish sampler platter was somewhat tasty but far from authentic.
