Kelly’s Cellars is reopening to the public on 6 July 2020!

Description

One of Belfast's oldest traditional Irish pubs, Kelly's Cellars offers live traditional music, pints of Guinness and Irish stew.

Described as "a hidden gem that oozes old traditional values", it is famous for a pint of Guinness served with homemade Irish beef stew.

Built in 1720, Kelly's Cellars has changed very little in 200 years and still has most of its original features.

The whitewashed walls and uneven concrete floor are in keeping with a traditional Irish bar. The bar is what you would imagine a few hundred years ago. Low arches and an original open fire makes Kelly's Cellars feel like a home from home, and people singing a song or two is a familiar part of a vibrant pub.

Although Kelly's is in the city centre, it boasts a local clientele from all over Belfast, and you're always guaranteed of some local banter and a true Irish welcome.

Kelly's has a rich musical heritage, and Irish musicians from all over Ireland and beyond often call in for a few tunes in a relaxed atmosphere.

Kelly's is also known for its history. The United Irish Men used Kelly's Cellars as a meeting place and plotted the 1798 rebellion against the English Rule.
