The only downside, no food. But that is easily solved, there are tons of places to eat.
Now, Connolly's is a traditional pub, with not just the feel of Irish, but Irish all around you. The staff is great. Quick to serve, even large crowds. They pour the perfect pint, so don't expect your Guinness to come in 30 seconds! I like to go on slower nights when I can visit (Monday or Tuesday). I always have a great time, and I hit this place every time I'm in town.
The crowds come in waves, an early crowd that thins out around 9:30 or so, and then a surge around 11.

The pub is small, it took about 10 minutes sitting at the bar to get a drink and the music was super load...they have 2 mackie 450s (speakers) hanging from the ceiling but they are cranked all the way up so it's tough to talk.

Reminds me of a local bar in New Jersey.

Ample seating outdoors & corn hole.

Relaxed setting.

Will definitely be back next time were in Charlotte!

Now that that is out of the way...a great place to hang out. Be kind to the staff and they will be kind to you. Get too big for your britches and they will put you in your place-Exactly as it should be. If you are in when it's slow the staff chats and if they are busy, well there are other patrons to be served. Use your manners and you will love this wonderful place!

Connolly's is still the best place to grab a pint in downtown Charlotte. Ronin is probably the best bartender in town and the staff goes out of their way to ensure you have a great time. Unlike other bars that have come and gone, Connolly's has survived the test of time and for obvious reasons.
