Kelly's On King
A Slice of Ireland

285 King Street,

It's narrow, it's wooden, and it's Irish. Kelly's looks tiny from outside, but extends a fair distance back from King Street and wastes little space. Following the Irish pub stereotype of 'wooden bar, fill with knick-knacks' it's not exactly breaking the mould, but it's a nice enough little spot to down a couple of Guinnesses. There's pool, food, jukebox and all the standard accoutrements you expect of a pub, and it's right in the middle of Newtown's busiest street. Worth a go if you're passing, but not the best spot the area has to offer.

Kelly's rocks - as does the karaoke (sometimes)! There's always this tiny little Irish woman there and her distinctly aggressive rendition of The Pogues "Fairytale of New York". She's so small and petite but she sure as hell gives Shane MacGowan a run for his euros!

kellys would be a lot better if they canned the karaoke or at least regulated it somehow. large middle aged men should not be allowed to sing britney spear's oops i did it again. at least not in public

I loved the live music! Especially the Acoustic Lounge on Tuesday nights. Great atmosphere and really nice bar staff. A great place to meet and grab a cheap feed, get good service, listen to quality music and down a few Irish ales!

As they say in real estate, it's all about position, poistion, position. And boy has this place got position - right next door to Shakespeares Pies. Mmh, I love pies, almost as much as the Bank Hotel's fried chicken wings.

A little noisy for those just looking for a quiet place to meet and regulary drink at.
