Service outstanding here. Reuben was unlike any other loaded with corned beef & flavor. Friday night's Traditional Irish Music was a perfect accompaniment for the delicious food.

We sat outdoors which offers a comfortable pet friendly atmosphere since we were traveling with a Chocolate Lab.

Friday, May 27 7PM service was less than stellar. Waitress clearly wasn't into it. Very slow and didn't know the menu very well. The selection of beers was lacking. Food was good but it took entirely too long to get..... not a go back to place for us.

We had a great lunch. The men had Reuben sandwiches that were filled with corned beef. They had a variety of beers and the atmosphere was very pleasing.

Irish style pub, comfortable, clean and welcoming. Local brew on tap as well as your more well known Irish beers. Pub fare, and some truly excellent lunch and dinner selections. Just a word to the wise--when you go, make sure you are hungry! Generous portions.

Been coming here for a while. This is by far the Best Irish Pub around, hands down. Whether it's the food, beverage or entertainment you won't find a better place to spend an afternoon or evening.

We were just passing through and asked a local to recommend some place for lunch. We never would have found Kathleen's or tried it without the recommendation. Glad we did. The food was excellent. The service was very good, making us feel welcome amongst the regulars. The menu is vast so make sure you look at all the options. We... More

Kathleen's Cottage, once again, has been voted the best Irish pub in NH. It is a well-deserved honor. The food is traditional Irish fare at it's best. Having been to Ireland, the pub atmosphere makes you feel like you have traveled right back to the Emerald Isle. The staff are super friendly and the bar well-stocked. Be sure to go... More
