Description: FAILTE! [WELCOME!] The Celtic Ray Public House in downtown Punta Gorda opened in 1997 by Proprietor Kevin Doyle. At the time there wasn’t a single establishment in the area that offered a variety of quality imported beers and the atmosphere of a traditional Irish Pub. We serve only high-quality imported draught beers, bottled beers, ciders, fine wines, as well as, a selection of “soft” beverages. We also have expanded with the ‘other side’ and now have a full liquor bar! Our menu features traditional Irish Pub favorites made from fresh ingredients and family recipes. The Celtic Ray’s Fish & Chips are famous worldwide! See you at the Ray, Slainte!

Considering that we visit London every year - it was surprising to find the best fish & chips are in Punta Gorda, Florida at Celtic Ray. Their cornish pasties also surpass the best in Cornwall. Welcoming atmosphere, great bands and beer!

We enjoyed our time in this wee pub. The beer, food and service were all good, and the atmosphere is comfortable and interesting.

Ok, some beer is served warm but not Stella, uhh, The Sheperd's Pie was downright awful, the portion was served in a very small French Onion Soup Bowl and the salt was unbearable, the staff was great but the food and beer need serious attention, the Ice House is right down the road in Punta Gorda and much better and cheerful and the British Open near Venice is a cut above both of these
