Description: "The Mystic Celt " restaurant is the dream of Paul and Sylvia Smith. We are trying to promote an age-old tradition that nourished not only our forefathers' bodies, but also their spirits. Thus we coined the phrase "Traditional Celtic Cuisine." Ireland has an enviable reputation for good wholesome dishes, many of which offer some of the finest quality foods.Recently we have developed a new awareness of the dishes of our ancestors and the confidence to recreate and enrich our native culinary tradition. A new Irish food culture is growing, driven by the lavish bounties of our seas, lakes and the rich land of Erin.Our "Traditional Celtic" menu is a celebration of the rich, ancient food culture of a uniquely beautiful land. This is our tribute to the country of our birth, a land where we are privileged to live.

My second time in Mystic Celt with the family. Both experiences very enjoyable and could not fault a thing. This time was Sunday lunch. From the minute we walked in the door we were looked after by friendly helpful staff who were great with the kids. From the homemade brown bread on the table right through to dessert evrything was perfectly cooked and we handed back empty plates. My wife and I both had the fish and chips because we know they source it locally and would be fresh. It was gorgeous.
I love the way the chef comes out to talk to you and ask how your meal was and tell you where the ingredients are sourced. A lovely touch that tops of this great restaraunt.
We'll be back again and again.

My wife and i are very picky eaters. I was very pleased with the friendly relaxed atmosphere. As for the food. It was fantastic, and not mean portions. Well done, hard to find these days.

An absolute gem in Wicklow Town. Run by local chef Paul, who you will see doing the rounds during your meal making sure all is well, employing local staff and using fresh local produce, this restaurant is one of a kind in a seaside town and is adored by locals and visitors alike. Not to be missed, even if you're just passing through. You might even get a picture with the resident lobster!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. We are delighted that you that you noticed that staff and food were local. We get lots of kids looking for photos with the lobsters and we try to accommodate whenever we can. All the lobster and crab is provided by local fishermen, if they can’t get them we won’t have them as we will not purchase them anywhere else. Looking forward to your return visit, slán go foill Chef Paul
