I am Irish, ths bar felt like home, down to the fella singing Niall Diamond and Van Morrison songs on the guitar in the corner, a small amount of banter from the bar man and an excellent selection of irish whiskey. Love it!

Walking into this Post Alley bar, you really feel like you're in Ireland with the dark walls, wood furniture, and the cozy little nooks to sit in while you try one of the many brews. Our server was from Ireland, so the authenticity is thorough!...More

We came here for a drink after dinner at the Pink Door. The drink selection was a little limited but good and the service was prompt and attentive. The seating was comfortable and the atmosphere was enjoyable.

Being one that looks for paranormal activity, I heard that Kell's was known to have activity so decided to check this place out. Our bartender, Rory Kell, explained that the current bar was a temporary one and that they were renovating the original restaurant which...More

If you go to their website you will see that there isn't a children's menu. When we were there , we did not notice any children in the restaurant.

Kells Irish Restaurant & Bar is one of Seattle's favorite hideaways. Situated in Post Alley above the historic Pike Place Market, Kells is a fine way to round up a day's sightseeing or browsing at the market. The pub is always alive with folks cooling off after a day's work. The restaurant will be sure to remind you of the Old Country with its warm, cozy atmosphere and traditional surroundings. There's also a patio outside that's a great place to feel the breeze from the Sound and the buzz of the marketplace. We also have a grand celebration every St. Patrick's Day. Kells proudly serves Seattle's largest Single Malt Scotch collection.
