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...More

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...More

Dropped in to the bar (first time) for a drink and when we sat down the bartender asked me and my wife for ID. This was our first visit to New Orleans but not our first visit to a bar in the city. No other...More

After all the years of living in the New Orleans area, this was my first visit to The Kerry Irish Pub. This is a nice pub with several beers on tap and a large variety of Irish Whiskeys. There was a musician playing acoustic guitar...More

I read the reviews after I visited last night. Saw some of the things other reviewers mentioned but not all. "Rude bartender" seems to be a common theme and I can see where people get that. We sat and listened to the music and nobody...More

This place was dirty, even by New Orleans standards and the staff was not friendly. If you are looking for pool tables I would recommend Snookers, also on Decatur.They have more tables and a much more friendly staff.

This little bar had live music and fair prices. The bartender had a great personality and it wasn’t stuffed with tourists. I will be back!

I popped into The Kerry for an afternoon pint and really liked the look of it. Has the look of a good pub that has been around a while. Sadly, though, it seems to be coasting on what past it may have had. The server...More

Nice little hole-in-the-wall in the Quarter. They had a good solo act playing and the atmosphere was nice. Only made it there once during the week we stayed, but I would go back.

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
