Neighborhood: French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

Friendly pub
Nov 2021
We stopped in on our way back to our hotel. It's a quirky little place, very dark inside, but the bartender is a real gem. He was so friendly and gave us a lot of history of the bar and the city. The drinks were good and the atmosphere was awesome. If you're a beer drinker, Guinness is their specialty. If you like liquor, they had pretty much everything to choose from. The bartender also checked our vax cards, which the city was mandating at the time, but not many places were actually doing. We were ready with ours and appreciated that he was complying with the ordinance. We will definitely stop back when we're in town again.

Stopped in for a few drinks while waiting for a tour. Awesome old pub setting. Bartender was a great guy who talked to us for a while. Loved the different LEO patches behind the bar! Great place to have a few and relax!

Bad, Very Bad

If you like tainted Smithwick's and watered down Magner's Cider, this is the pub for you. The Kerry Irish Pub is undeserving of its name. Gouge and Dupe's is a more appropriate name for this disgraceful establishment.

I Love Kerry’s
Oct 2019 • Couples
Kerry’s Irish pub is amazing! My husband and I have been here three times in the last 24 hours and will most definitely be back in our next few days here! The bartender Todd is my second favorite person in the world next to my husband Todd. Highly recommend stopping in and having a beer at the local well priced pub. Only place you can have a $6 beer and want to stay for more!

Beth Patterson rocks Kerry’s 2 times!
Jul 2019 • Couples
On a recent visit we came across the Kerry! We were drawn in by the music and stayed for a wonderful concert featuring “Beth Patterson” folk, rock, heavy metal all performed by a true virtuoso on the bouzouki! Rush, Floyd, Steeleye Span, Metallica, some wonderful original tunes too, it was such a great show we came back a few nights later with friends for another great show.

Also many thanks to Paul behind the bar!

My friend & I stopped into this upper Quarter establishment for a quick beverage on our long, hot walk back to the lower Quarter. It was delightful. The beer was cold & the service was fast & friendly. I have been here before, but somehow let too much time go between visits. I am putting this place back on my radar of local watering holes to visit more often.

Neighborhood Place Not Tourist Trap

If your in NOLA to get drunk on daiquiri bombs & fishbowl's on Bourbon Street, this is not a place for you. I'm Kerry born on St. Patrick's day so it was a must stop for a Guinness night before St. Patrick's. A good Celtic/Pop hybrid band was on stage and it was a a nice place to get away from the crowds & general filth of the French Quarter in the evening. Don't get me wrong, this is a dingy bar that you might find in a neighborhood in any big city, not a fancy hotel lounge. Much more authentic.

Expensive

We came here after being out all day seeing the city. It was opposite our hotel so we thought we’d have a quick drink before heading in for the night. The place was dark, dirty and there was one person in there. We got asked for ID which I thought was strange as we hadn’t been asked anywhere else we had been drinking throughout the holiday. We had one pint of Guinness and one cider and it was $12!!! An absolute rip off and the bar tender was really rude. Waste of time.

OMG! This is the worst bar I have ever been to in NOLA! It was close to our condo and stopped for a drink. The bartender was terrible! We asked for snakebites, which is a typical Irish drink - Guiness and Cider - He appeared stumped.. We told him what they were and said, "I KNOW!" While getting our 4 drinks he was more interested on the cheerleaders on the TV screen then taking care of us. While getting our drinks, he mentioned some girl that had gone to the bathroom and had been in there awhile and wondered if she fell in or was taking a #*!#! We quickly got out to go cups and took off! We are not easily or offended but don't waste your time! GO to Ryans up the street!
