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).

Service and drink of the highest - we visited on a Friday evening following a local recommendation and enjoyed a few jars while listening to genuine traditional Irish music (a rarity now in central Dublin). Finished the evening dancing with French visitors who equaly enjoyed the music.
We returned on the Saturday after dinner (excellent) in Le Bon Crubeen next door, but were disappointed that the music was not traditional Irish and was too loud to think never mind converse - bar orders by hand signals. We left.

If you want to drink Guinness in special atmosphere with live music - go to Celt Bar.
Superb place to chill.

We went to The Celt in March, around St Patrick's and we basically wandered in by mistake. But once in, we knew we were in the right place. The Celt looks like there are 3 pubs in one. There are 3 rooms, each with it's own identity. The food was tasty, the beer and whisky were brilliant and the atmosphere was great!!! The locals are very friendly, there was live irish music, people drinking, dancing and singing along - a true irish experience. The staff were also friendly and attentive.

Old School pub, good food, friendly staff and of course a good choice of beers. Not the biggest of places though.
