A NORTHWEST TRADITION SINCE 1983
A long-standing Irish pub and restaurant offering delicious Irish fare with organic, home-grown ingredients from the Kells Family Farm, craft beers brewed fresh from our Brewery on NW 21st, a laid-back cigar lounge downstairs, a spacious ballroom upstairs available for private parties and events, and a variety of live music every night for adults to enjoy in our Pub.
Established in 1990.
Gerard, who hails from Belfast, expanded the business to Portland in 1996, after opening the first Kells in Seattle's Pike Place Market in 1983. It was a family business. His brothers helped with construction; his mother prepared food in the kitchen and hosted.
