Kerry Irish Pub has its share of regulars who enjoy the Guinness and other brews and liquors. One of a handful of Celt-influenced outposts in the French Quarter, the Kerry is a small, friendly bar that features decent-to-very-good musical talent. Not all of the music is Irish, either; local folk and fringe acts such as Jim Smith or Aural Elixir are as likely to perform as singer-songwriters Barry Cowsill or Dave Sharp. Although tourists do wander in, this spot sports a neighborhood feel, it's a decent place to hang out and drink, shoot pool or do whatever.
It boasts a sense of Celtic community that's never stronger than when touring acts such as Smithfield Fair bring out the small, loyal Irish music contingent. The Kerry Irish Pub was born in October, I use the word 'born' because the word 'established' does not even come close to telling the tale.
The idea for 'The Kerry' was conceived in the back bar of another irish pub, the old 'Ryan's Irish Pub' once located on bourbon street. After a long and difficult labor 'Kerry Irish Pub' was finally born. Kay Harris, one of the proud, but weary parents had a love and enthusiasm for Irish and country music I found beyond compare.
The sounds of Irish, country, folk, rock, bluegrass, roots rock, and more are part of the heart and soul that is 'the Kerry Irish Pub'. The success of the Kerry Irish Pub is a true musical testament to Kay's drive and determination for 'The Kerry' to succeed. If a live music club can have a mission statement, 'The Kerry's' is that it has always offered a stage and haven for talented local musicians, as well as those just passing through town. The music spans an assortment of styles, from the Gaelic to bluegrass to rock.
The hauntings in this bar seem to consist of eerie sounds and feelings, such as the sound of incorporeal footsteps, ghostly voices and whispers, and cold spots. Doors have opened or closed by themselves,and customers report feelings of being followed when there's no one there.
So the next time you plan to party in the French Quarter, put these very haunted locations on your "Must See" list, and maybe you will have a memorable experience of the paranormal kind!
