Myself and my partner attempted to visit this establishment today and were met with great hostility. The woman presented herself in a snide and rude manner. When my partner attempted to present a photo of his passport for ID (this MAN is 20 years old),...she was very rude and refused to even read his details, which matched his Covid cert exactly! She point blank refused to deal with us and could be heard making remarks about my partner as we walked away. From someone that works in a bar, I found this to be extremely unprofessional. However, judging from other reviews, it would appear that people do not appreciate this member of staff either! Would not recommend.More

Place was packed. No people wearing masks. No covid certs checked. Bar service was allowed. More than six people at table was allowed. Place was so packed you could not even move. Went on Saturday the 18th of December. Really think they should put covid...guidelines in place because this is where I got covid.More

We’ve been to this place to have a good time… and it’s been like this… until the bill arrived. We were 6 friends and we weren’t told that from 6 pax you can’t pay separately as well as we weren’t told about the 10% service...charge (written with a pen in the bill… really?). If you have this clause and you see 6 people sit down you were supposed to say it before you take the order, that’s pretty logical. Other than that we had been there before and we were more than 6 and we paid separately. In the end we managed to pay separately… but then the lady in the register, a full xenophobic one, asked us where we were from… when we answered saying that some were from Spain and others from Italy she said: “it’s the same” with a disgusted and greedy face. This is completely non acceptable, xenophobic and racist. You should really behave in a better way and learn how to stay in a world that’s going globally faster than you guys from the Celt pub can solve a simple issue as paying separately. Cheers.More

We went here for different purposes across a weekend. One night they had a live musician, singing and drinks flying off the bar. The next day we had dinner here. We had the chicken and the burger, both wonderful! The chicken was juicy with crispy...skin and the burger was flavorfull. Lastly we were here an afternoon to grab a beer and a coffee. The prices are fair. The place is packed most nights. Food is good. A+ atmosphere. It's crowded, the bathrooms are not often cleaned and you might be spat on by Irishmen singing and rocking on their shairs. To me, that is the way it should be.More

Live music. Full of people dancing and singing. You need to be strong and patient to get a pint at the bar but overall the atmosphere was impressive. Good selection of draft beers, which is something normal in Dublin

Lovely traditional (yet quirky) Irish pub with friendly/ eccentric locals and live music. Reasonably priced drinks.

Honestly, sat on posting this for a few days so it wasn't written while in bad form about the Celt. We were going to the Ireland vs ABs on Saturday. We dropped in here for a meal and a pint pre-game. Sat down and had...our order in at 12.53pm. (I was keeping a very close eye on the clock as it's a 45 minute walk to the Aviva). Our food did not arrive until 1.45pm. There was a whole handlin' even getting to that point. We asked 3 different members of staff where our food was. Barman clearly couldn't have cared less as he spoke to no-one other than his heads sitting down at the bar. Staff member #2 didn't chase up. Staff member #3 was the lady who took our order originally. Her face clearly indicated she had forgotten and told us "2 minutes". This was at 1.30. I then had to watch the same food item I'd ordered sail past my by-now-starved-face and go to another table who had come in a full 20 minutes after us. We had our jackets on and were leaving when the food was rushed out. No apology was offered. No offer to knock down the price or a free drink. Quite frankly, if the food had arrived on time this place was worthy of 5 stars. And I'd have become a repeat customer and recommended the bar as such. An apology/price change might have bumped it back up to a three. As it stands, The Celt has the dubious honour of being only the 2nd-star review I've ever given out of over 50 such reviews. The only recommendations to be offered would be "beware".More

Great service, friendly staff, top notch all around. As a solo traveler from the States I felt totally safe in the Celt, lots of locals, listen and learn a ton of Irish history. Music nightly.

We never booked in advance when we visited for supper or drinks. We stopped in multiple times. Although it may look full with no room when you walk in, the place is actually massive. There are a few different seating areas... More
