A good fun Irish pub. The outside patio is a great place to hang out and everyone is super friendly!

Good solid Irish pub, the same people own the Dandelion Market which is a fantastic restaurant. A few pre dinner drinks in Connoly's then off to Dandelion would make a great night out for a couple.

Local owned. And very popular center city location. Prices and service are very good. A straight forward Irish pub. Beer is cold. Patrons tend to be upscale and friendly

This is a Irish Pub, dark small with the best staff to make you feel at home and forget the rest of the world. Good conversation. If I lived in Charlotte I would be a regular.

You may be wondering why there are not tons of pics... this is a real deal - very dark inside Irish pub - where you are going to get a real drink. I am a huge fan of Irish Whiskys and they did not disappoint me! The staff is knowledgeable about their liquor and fun to talk with throughout the... More

This bar is so awesome. Great outdoor area and nice bartenders. I loved the decor. The bathroom had a huge line forever to wait in, I ended up leaving this bar to find a shorter bathroom line. I would return. Check them out sometime :)

The staff here is awesome. They went out of there way to give excellent service. It's a fun place with a really cool outdoor courtyard. Fantastic place to late-night or pre game. We didn't eat there but I would definitely try it.
