Celtica...a local favorite

This is an old, kind of crusty bar which we found to be a local favorite. Don't look for fancy here but it's a great place for a beer and lobster roll while meeting locals. The tee shirts have an attractive logo. We bought one.

It was a Sunday night and very empty with only two other people in the establishment. We had our kids with us expecting to get them non-alcolohilic piña coladas...however, they had no fixins for any kind of piña coloda, alcoholic or otherwise. They didn't even have apple juice! What made the experience worse was the music playing - all rap... More

We arrived late at our hotel on a Saturday. It was raining hard and we were hungry. The hotel suggested the Celtica. We weren't too sure when we first went in since it was a bit noisy but the staff were very friendly and the fish and chips was fantastic. Washed down with a local beer. Heaven.

Had a great inexpensive lunch at the pub. It is located on the side street from the Marriott. Try the Steak Bomb Sandwich.

This pub was close to where we were staying - seems like a local hangout. The seats are like thrones set up high, interesting to get out of after a few beers, I would think! We just had a drink in there which was ok.

This was exactly what I needed. It is not a tourist spot, but a locals hangout. The food choice, taste and value were excellent for me. I had a little trouble deciding, but went with the stuffed coal hog which was perfect. Whenever I'm in an Irish pub, Guiness is my choice, so no disappointment there. The prices were the... More

This was our favorite clam chowder and only $4 a bowl. Fun atmosphere. Next to the Marriott hotel. Also, great, inexpensive fired pizza.

Sitting at the bar right now. We've been out touring & walking in the hot sun; so a cold beer was needed. We passed this pub last night so decided it would be a great place to relax. So that's what we are doing except the bar person could care less we are sitting here. There are only us &... More
