You were obviously expecting a typical American restaurant experience but that's not what we are. The true Irish pub experience is a social thing. Unlike being isolated from the pub by a server, tradition requires that you order at the bar, which has the full...More

Sometimes you just want a good beer. This place offered an English/Irish Pub ambiance and it also had 'sliders' positioned outside where you could enjoy the nice Florida temp's while having a really good craft beer. Nuff' said.More

Description
FAILTE! [WELCOME!] The Celtic Ray Public House in downtown Punta Gorda opened in 1997 by Proprietor Kevin Doyle. At the time there wasn’t a single establishment in the area that offered a variety of quality imported beers and the atmosphere of a traditional Irish Pub. We serve only high-quality imported draught beers, bottled beers, ciders, fine wines, as well as, a selection of “soft” beverages. We also have expanded with the ‘other side’ and now have a full liquor bar! Our menu features traditional Irish Pub favorites made from fresh ingredients and family recipes. The Celtic Ray’s Fish & Chips are famous worldwide! See you at the Ray, Slainte!
