You can always tell a good bar when it is a favorite of the locals. We sipped our drinks while listening to some live Irish folk music. The folks behind the bar were very friendly. I've been here every visit to Savannah--a nice tradition!

The fantastic, traditional Irish music, pub food and Guinness was like being in a pub in Ireland. We went back twice to enjoy it. The entertainer was excellent and staff were very attentive.

My family and I enjoyed a very good meal at Kevin Berry's Irish Pub! The atmosphere was great! The building dates back to pre-Civil War easily. There were tables upstairs that over look River Street and the river. The food was great and all with an Irish flair! Check this one out!

My wife and I stopped here for a drink while wandering the riverfront. This is a neat old dark stone and brick place. It has a very authentic Irish Pub look. The problem was the bartender who no doubt had good intentions but was incredibly annoying . He tried WAY TOO HARD to be funny and failed miserably. We had... More

We visit Savannah every couple of years and AWAYS get our Irish Fix of entertainment at Kevin Berry's Irish Pub. Intimate atmosphere , audience participation encouraged. Good bar food and reasonable drinks. Guinness preferred, but other Irish drink fare available.
