Description: FAILTE! [WELCOME!] The Celtic Ray Public House in downtown Punta Gorda opened in 1997 by Proprietor Kevin Doyle. At the time there wasn’t a single establishment in the area that offered a variety of quality imported beers and the atmosphere of a traditional Irish Pub. We serve only high-quality imported draught beers, bottled beers, ciders, fine wines, as well as, a selection of “soft” beverages. We also have expanded with the ‘other side’ and now have a full liquor bar! Our menu features traditional Irish Pub favorites made from fresh ingredients and family recipes. The Celtic Ray’s Fish & Chips are famous worldwide! See you at the Ray, Slainte!

The is one of the best pubs to visit that you will ever find. Their selection of imported spirits and quality food at very reasonable prices is next to none. On top of that they continue to bring in quality entertainment for the most fun for fans at all ages.

They have a good selection of brew and Irish Whiskey. Although we did not have food this time, we have in the past and it was good. We were there a little before closing time and I have to say, the bartender was just short of rude to start and at closing time he crossed right over into fully rude. I have seen him in there before, but usually has help they are friendly. He made a good night a little less pleasant.

Celtic Ray is our favorite pub & restaurant for fish & chips. It's the warmest, the liveliest, the most fabulously tasty fries (chips!) and the lightest, crispest, non-greasy fish. I kid you not! Been there as often as we can for the past 3 winters
