Great traditional Irish pub & restaurant with live music on Sunday. Welcoming, homey atmosphere. Eclectic "old timey" decor. All the traditional favorites. A must when spending time in North Conway.

We have visited North Conway about six times and never missed a visit to May Kelly's. Being of Irish descent, my wife and I love the decor and the menu. Excellent service and excellent food - it's a touch of the old sod! The bar is a amazing place to meet and greet and chat with fellow visitors. May Kelly's... More

May Kelly's gets high marks from many visitors to the MWV. It's just not our type of place - very crowded tables in a smaller space with a varied menu - nothing exceptional. Check out Delaney's next door - you'll be happier.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Ireland, so I felt confident that we would enjoy our time here. May's was wonderfully welcoming, the decor actually reminded us of a pub in Salthill, County Galway. The food was good. I had a delicious steak special and he had the stew. My Irish coffee took me right back, and the... More

There is no doubt that May Kelly's is a popular venue , and on the night we visited there was a 30 min wait for a table . I think that is common . This is a pub with a restaurant , but when the restaurant is busy , you are seated in the pub section which is ok .... More

We visited May Kelly's on a rainy weeknight. The menu had just what we wanted in terms of homey, comfort food: things like calves liver and onions, fish & chips, chicken pot pie, beef stew. I settled on shepherds pie & my husband chose meatloaf. We were very happy with both. The portions are large and everything tastes homemade. My... More

We ate at May Kelly's Cottage Restaurant and Pub on a Thursday night, when they had an appetizer, meal and dessert for one price. I had the meat loaf wrapped in bacon for my meal. It was a sizeable portion, and very tasty. I was too full to eat dessert, so I brought the Bailey's cheesecake with me when I... More
