We dined at this place twice during our brief visit to Dublin in June of 2017. It is so great that on our last night, even though we walked to the Temple Bar district where all the touristy pubs are, we walked back to The Celt Pub to have our last Irish meal there.
The location is north of the river so it is where all the "famous" pubs are, but based on our observation, the other ones are more touristy and The Celt Pub seems to be more authentically Irish (of course, they cater to tourists as well). The scene is lively, and on our two nights there, the live bands played some Irish music and often the crowds joined in, singing, clapping and stomping -- it was a lovely atmosphere. The food is good -- we tried the Crispy Crubeens, The Celt’s Famous Irish Stew (lamb), Traditional Beef and Guinness Stew and Pork and Leek Bangers (sausages) and Mash, all tasted pretty good and Irish to us. Of course, you have to try the draft beers.
I highly recommend this pub to those who want a genuine taste of Ireland (in more than one way).
