We make at LEAST one visit to Kells every time we visit Seattle. The atmosphere is fun and makes me feel like I am in Ireland! It's location is close to the Market so it makes a great place to relax after your shopping excursion!...More

We visited twice while in Seattle. Once for drinks and once for drinks and our dinner. They have an assortment of nice drinks and the food was good. The pub looks just like the pubs in Ireland.
