We stayed at the Harding hotel above the bar. Went to Darkey Kelly’s often. Special thanks to Mo such an amazing person he made us feel so welcome and right at home. Simply the best host we had during our entire trip. The music here was incredible and the food very good. This is a must stop and when you go, look for Mo. I guarantee he will make sure you have a great time. Thank you Mo. Salinte to you !

Back for a repeat visit this year, we made sure we were in Dublin on a Sunday evening so we could be sure to enjoy the music at Darky Kelly’s. This time I had the seafood chowder. Wow!!!!! Almost like two dishes in one. The clams were a meal in themselves and the underlying chowder ...creamy and full of fish and crab meat. Delicious! Love this place!!!!

While on a business trip to Dublin, my colleagues and I decided to participate in some local flavor, and we were not disappointed. The place was crowded yet we never felt like it was crowded. Our server was very attentive. Guinness beef, fish and chips and bangus were very tasty. Put this on your list of eateries when traveling to Dublin.

Great food, perfect Guinness, and Irish music combined for a very enjoyable meal. Went on a Tuesday night after a long day of travel and this place did not disappoint. Would love to go back.
