Stopped into this place my last night in Dublin, as it was a short walk from where l was staying. I was thoroughly impressed. The pints poured were perfect and the food was delicious and not expensive. The staff also deserves some love. The place got busy especially when the musicians showed up and they stayed on pace (also, kudos... More

This was a really nice and typical Irish pub. The staff is friendly. Price seems to be high when you first look, but you have huge portions! Plenty of beers. You have to go there! It's a must!!

Warm and friendly right off the bat. They stayed open late just to accommodate us and even started drinking with us and telling stories. One of Dublin's riches.

This place was recommended to us by our waitress at JW Sweetman. She did not steer us wrong. We had already eaten, so cannot comment on the food. But the service was on point, great atmosphere and a fun place to enjoy a few pints!

This place was amazing (title of post). The food was good, if I remember correctly, but the entertainment, the atmosphere, and the drinks were the real MVPs of the night. This place was so much fun that there was a bit of confusion with our order and bill and neither of us cared one bit, oooh Ireland. I wish I... More

Very tasty traditional Irish food - we tried fish and chips and The Celt's traditional Irish Stew - both with amazing taste. Also, there was a great musician singing and playing guitar throughout the evening, giving us the unique feeling of being in an Irish pub.

This is a great little pub with a fantastic atmosphere. The food was as good as the Guinness - good range and good value too. Very friendly and welcoming. Try the guinness and beef pie, Irish stew or the bacon and cabbage. All good and tasty. Music starts some time after nine - and when we were there it was... More

I normally go there for lunch on Fridays with my work colleagues and the food is always nice. The chicken wings and the stew are highly recommended. The Celt is a very traditional Irish pub with Irish music on the background and a lot of Irish artifacts decorating it. A nice place to go for a cheap and traditional lunch
