Connolly's On Fifth
When one thinks of an Irish bar, the general assumption is that there will be good pours, good service, and a very nice kind of "old school" ambiance. That said, Connolly's could be used as a prime example of the genre! Lots of good music played at just the right volume (most of it Gaelic), a fine selection of liquors, including The Balvenie Doublewood . The friendly bartender exhibited a wisdom beyond his years for his professional treatment of his patrons, which is a quality sadly lacking in most places today. If you want to visit an Irish bar that lends the illusion that it's St Pat's every day, this is the place... an absolute must for visitors in Charlotte... Thank You!
Connolly's On 5th is one of the best Irish pubs in the Carolinas and their bartenders are authentic from Ireland with the accents and everything!! Kayla is a beautiful lass who made sure to chat up all the guests at the bar even when it was at peak busy levels. She was amazing! The customer base ranged from locals out on the town to tourists visiting from all around the world. A truly diverse group all enjoying a pint at the pub together. There is a wide variety of Irish Whiskeys available and the Guinness pour was divine!! SLINTE
I love this place. The bartenders are awesome, especially Wolfie. The drinks are good, reasonably priced and the atmosphere is always fun. We stopped in last Sat, after dinner and stayed until they closed the upstairs area. Awesome time fellas! Thanks so much.

Excellent service on even a busy night, with reasonable prices despite its pricey neighborhood. Nice, dark, and inviting interior, with a good front porch view of pedestrian traffic.
Best Irish Coffee in Charlotte, NC! Super authentic and intimate. We just got back from Ireland and cant tell the difference!! If youre looking for a Guinness that tastes like its directly from the storehouse in Dublin this is the place!
