Durty Nelly's Irish Pub
There’s no cover charge at this authentic Irish bar, which was built in Ireland then disassembled and shipped to Halifax, where it was reconstructed. In addition to Irish brews (Kilkenny, Smithwick’s and, of course, Guinness), Durty Nelly’s pours about a dozen local ales, including the requisite Keith’s. Chef David Adjey creates gastro versions of traditional Irish pub grub, while affable manager Eugene McCabe brings the craic. There’s live music every night, but make sure to arrive early on Fridays and Saturdays.
