Came here for a wee pint of Guinness and some homemade stew before I would shoot on with my daily duties. On arrival I've received a Warm Welcome from Kirsty, she showed me down the table, brought me my stew promptly. Stew tasted Amazing and...it was the Best Guinness in Town! 😎 Great warm atmosphere, followed by warm service, what else do you want? Thank you! Keep it up!More

The staff were fantastic!! Jake was our main bar man during our evening and made sure we had a great night. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. Caitlin was able to get us a table even though they were very busy. Adrian the bouncer dealt...with a potentially difficult situation and Roisin was cheerful and friendly. We will definitely be back to visit again.More

We thought Kelly's dud food still but apparently not. However we were permitted to order a take away and have it delivered. Good pints/ drinks, good atmosphere. But what really made it so good was the excellent service from all the staff. Nothing was a...problem, tables attended promptly and cleared regularly. We were sitting outside under huge canopies. It came on rain and we only noticed when we saw the staff wearing rain coats and still serving without any problems. Good Covid security from staff and customers. Once again absolutely fantastic service, real credit to you all.More

Kelly’s is one of the oldest pubs in Belfast. It’s typical and nothing fancy but wonderful if you are looking for a traditional, Irish pub experience. There are drinks, food and music. A pub not to miss in the heart of Belfast.

It has been close to a decade tat I first visited Kellys Cellar. I remember clearly it was June 2011 and I was on a business trip to Belfast. On our way back to Hilton hotel I thought of visiting the pub for a local...experience. It was electic rit from the word go. Guiness is the flavor of the city / country and hence there was no escaping it for sure. I also had some chicken wings and enjoyed my time here. It was lovely indeed. Needless to say the pride of dining in Belfast's oldest pub was a plus point oo.More

This pub is what most people would think an Irish pub would be like, warm, cozy and full of fun-lovong people. You could soend hours looking at all the "stuff" which decorates the walls and ceilings. The one negative is the men's room, really needs...some TLCMore

The perfect glass of Guinness with the most loveliest friendliest staff. Gorgeous old authentic pub. Was lines of Guinness pints waiting to be topped up after settling which was a sight to see! Loved it!
