We really enjoyed both our visits and meals to Mary Kelly's. The traditional Irish meals are the best - Shepherd's pie and meatloaf in particular were wonderful. The atmosphere is fun and upbeat, and the service is very good. On Sundays they have an Irish "jam session" (can't remember the Irish name) which is great. I had thought I left my cell phone there and the Irish hostess?/owner? really went out of her way to look for it and take my name in case they found it. We absolutely highly recommend this great restaurant.

When in North Conway you just have to treat yourself to at least one meal at this fantastic quirky restaurant. Being of Irish decent, i don't really recognise the Ireland it represents but perhaps that's an American thing! We enjoyed the experience so much we ate there twice in our four day stay and were welcomed back like family. The food is excellent & the atmosphere was great. Despite being a busy holiday weekend the service by our waitress, Meredith, was superb. Both times we were greeted by Marie/Mary who knew exactly what was happening at all times, was friendly and made you feel at home. As mentioned in the 2013 lonely planet (New England's best trips), this is the real deal & make it your top choice!

I liked the friendliness of the staff at this place and the atmosphere. I also liked its proximity to the middle of North Conway. And if I am ever in North Conway on a Sunday, I will really want to go there the the weekly Celtic session there.

Relaxing, comfortable, welcoming. This place had it all! The food was excellent! The owner walked us right to our table and checked on us during our meal! Seriously, who does that anymore! She also gave my daughter who was up there putting the final touches on her destination wedding at the Red Jacket Resort, names of local florist, dog watchers and photographers. Sunday afternoon we were treated to live Irish music, it was awesome!!
Will made this our destination restaurant whenever we go north now. We revisited after the wedding with our friends and they loved it too!!
