To our knowledge this is the only traditional Irish bar in Kuta and is located on the lower ground floor of the Bali Dynasty Resort – just look for the green rustic door. The quaint ambience, the warmth, the antiquity of the displays and the souvenirs brought directly from Ireland all add to the authenticity of Gracie Kelly's Irish Pub.
Stepping over the threshold is like being taken 100 years back in time and we are greeted with a friendly welcome by the team including Chef Anom who has been with Bali Dynasty Resort for more then 20 years and can often be found playing on the bongos with the band till the early hours of the morning. Ireland is famous for it's drinking culture and we plan to try a few of the cocktails, but our main mission today is to work our way through the dessert menu, starting with a Bread and Butter Pudding. The fluffy, buttery pudding is warm, sweet and laced with juicy raisins. A crispy topping drizzled with vanilla sauce, and a side of custard and whipped cream combine to create a divine taste. Next, a Hot Chocolate Brownie served on a hot stone plate. Two slices of dark chocolate brownie are smothered in chocolate sauce and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to create a dessert fantasy. Last but not least is Gracie's signature dessert, Hot Sticky Toffee Pudding creatively served in a sugar dough bowl. The rich date pudding is immersed in a delicious toffee sauce made from brown sugar, with just a hint of salt and is finished with vanilla ice cream. I am sure I will be back for more of this!
We wash down our desserts with a couple of sweet drinks, the Bali Sunset is a fresh fruity mocktail and the green Illusion matches the Irish green theme of the décor. Gracie Kelly's has live music every night of the week with a happy hour deal from 9-10pm, there are also regular quiz nights, a pool table, live sports on the big screen and of course St. Patrick Day is the one event not to be missed at this buzzing Irish Pub.
