Kelly's Cellars was recommended by our hotel and described as the oldest pub in Dublin. The Irish Stew was also recommended but after trying for two evenings and finding they had none left either one, we decided it really must be good, so will give the stew top marks on that basis. Sat inside one night and thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Well it was lunchtime so I thought having a half would be sensible. In hindsight I was in Belfast so perhaps sensible isn't the right attitude to adopt. However I wasn't expecting my masculinity to be challenged. You'll all have to come to your own conclusions about the barman. Nevertheless the pub is a great place and I enjoyed it... More

Oldest pub in Belfast reputably, large selection of beers, there was no live music playing when we called, perhaps it is only available in the evenings? Food selection is Irish beef stew, or Irish beef stew or Irish beef stew, but is was tasty! Free wifi.

Great traditional music pub. Outside seating,bands and great selection of beers. Fantastic place to meet friends and enjoy a relaxed drink. Would definitely recommend making time to spend a bit of time there on a visit to Belfast.

Visited on a recommendation. A bustling and atmospheric Irish bar which is a must visit if in Belfast. We had the usual drinks and soaked up the atmosphere and spontaneous music played live in the back bar. Its an eclectic mix of people and does get busy but well worth the visit. There is a large outside seating area which... More

I,m a local and love this bar as its a great advertisement for all Belfast has to offer - music, craic and good beer, local punters and lots of tourists. But why on earth with all the money they are taking in have they not sorted out the toilets, c'mon folks do the right thing by your punters and splash... More

Visited here with my friends for one of their birthdays. The atmosphere was brilliant. The place was really busy. And the live music was lovely to listen too. Staff were all pleasant. I would recommend this place to people and would definitely return.

Spent a lovely evening here with a friend. Staff very friendly as are the locals. Live music - first 4 musicians turned up, then another two, and half an hour later another 6. They all just joined into together and a fab evening was had. The drinks are a good price, log fires and a great atmosphere
