Eclectic and actually has good food. The bar is fun with dollars on the ceiling. It gets pretty crowed, but the music and staff are fun.

Stopped here for a light lunch, and had beautiful, fresh, delicious meals. Irish pub with a versatile menu - loved it! Perfect Pint Guinness pours! Grilled salmon Caesar salad, and a hummus plate both excellent. Service lovely.

This is a great place to go and watch soccer games and have a drink and some food. I always have their shepherd pie since it is so delicious! The atmosphere in here is always great and the staff is welcoming.

I stumbled upon this place when running one early evening and made a note to check it out for dinner. One of the best shepherds pies I’ve ever had and their stout which they brew is as good or better than Guinness!

I can't answer your question directly. I walked, but Kells is within a block or two of the green/orange and red/blue Max lines, so it's relatively accessible from almost anywhere in Portland.
