Don't miss the opening of the Brand New Gracie Kelly's Irish Pub
Gracie Kelly’s Irish Pub at Bali Dynasty Resort is in the midst of relocating to a more spacious street-front venue in the vibrant heart of South Kuta. This new-look restaurant facility will be launched to coincide with Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations on 17th March 2019.
Externally, the new site has been inspired by a classic Irish tower complete with a distinctive steeple and large ornate windows. However, exposed red brickwork and semi-industrial elements give the building a more contemporary edge. This eye-catching design concept still manages to respect Bali by utilising locally sourced materials.
Although now much larger in size, Gracie Kelly’s Irish Pub will retain many of the quirky features and decorative accents that have appealed to guests over the years. It will be a multi-storey venue with an outdoor terrace, extended bar and wood-panelled stage. With a stone fireplace in one corner and parlour seating nooks to recreate the ambience of an authentic Irish pub, people can come to eat, drink and be entertained by live music in air-conditioned comfort.
A mezzanine-styled second floor will be accessible via an elaborate staircase or a modern lift fitted with a vintage accordion gate. This upper area will entertain guests with pool tables, electronic darts and other fun pub activities. It will be supported by a smaller bar and a wrap-around counter that looks down over a wrought-iron railing onto the stage below.
In terms of wining and dining, Gracie Kelly’s will continue its wholesome Irish menu alongside international food options. Signature dishes will still be Beef & Guinness Pie, Mammy Kelly’s Fish & Chips, and Bangers & Mash. As breakfast is just about everyone’s favourite meal, a complete menu will be available throughout the day until late.
From the bar, guests will have all their needs covered with a comprehensive beverage list ranging from fresh juices to selected wines and top-shelf spirits. A variety of different beers will be served on tap including Guinness, Kilkenny and Bintang. Other popular beer brands will be sold by the bottle from an innovative ice counter.
The bigger and better Gracie Kelly’s is expected to become a social hub for Bali Dynasty guests and outside visitors alike. It will offer a weekly schedule of various activities including live bands, DJ music, a juke box and the resort’s famous charity quiz night. There will also be a big screen where crowds can gather to watch live sporting events from all around the world.
Gracie Kelly’s resident pair of leprechauns will continue to have a starring role at the new venue. Always a hit with the children, these pint-sized icons will get everyone into the party mood with their playful antics and crazy dance moves. Another fun gimmick will be a customised Gracie Kelly’s vehicle where guests can enjoy escorted rides from the lobby down to the main street.
After its official launch, Gracie Kelly’s Irish Pub at Bali Dynasty Resort will have 187 seats spread over two levels and a front terrace. An additional roof top environment will be available for private events with an open-air space to accommodate up to 90 people for a standing party. Opening hours will be from 8.00am until late every day of the week.
St. Patricks Day!
Don’t miss the biggest Irish party in town for St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday, 17th March 2019, 8pm to 1am. This colourful celebration will coincide with the grand launch of our brand-new Gracie Kelly’s Irish Pub that promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
It will be an evening filled with entertainment galore including toe-tapping music by our local Irish band and a special performance by Gracie Kelly’s resident leprechauns. Everyone is invited to get into the swing of things by joining in the fun of our Irish Dance Competition.
There will be great prizes to be won for the Best Costume, so don’t forget to dress up for the occasion.
Special beverage promotions will be available all throughout the night on cocktails, beers, and wine.

Charity Update - Back to Bali Dynasty Party 2019
The 26th Back to Bali Dynasty Party, hosted on 9th February 2019 at the Leederville Oval in Perth, Western Australia, was an overwhelming success. As the resort’s biggest annual fundraising event, this year’s party attracted more than 140 loyal guests for an evening of fabulous food and fun. It was once again made possible by the generosity of major sponsors such as AirAsia, Asia Escape Holidays and HelloWorld Travel Limited.
Over AUD 5,000 was raised through the sale of raffle tickets offering an array of great prizes, including a return flight for two people to Bali sponsored by AirAsia, hotel accommodation vouchers, free entry to various Bali activities, and much more.
All proceeds will be directed to Bali Dynasty’s Charity Account in an effort to alleviate the suffering of individuals in Bali through a collaborative partnership between the resort and Solemen Indonesia. Started in February 2016, the project is called “Help Friends for Life” and it has since supported many SoleBuddies with their ongoing long-term care and education. A significant number of one-off donations have also been made in the form of wheelchairs, prosthetic legs and varying medical treatments.
Bali’s Dynasty’s biggest charity achievement to date has been the allocation of funds to establish Solemen House – a four-bedroom home for poor patients and their families to stay at no cost. A Solemen Car was also purchased to transport people in need to the hospital for free. Other initiatives include the installation of community toilets and shower blocks for an impoverished extended family group in North Bali, giving 26 people access to basic bathroom facilities and proper hygiene.
The next project on the agenda will be to fund Bali Dynasty Resorts’ Recovery Centre. This will be a supporting facility within the new Solemen Centre, replacing the current SoleHouse, which is set to relocate to new premises this coming July. The Bali Dynasty Recovery Centre will be a comfortable home environment where patients can recuperate after surgery or treatment. There is also a self contained room for patients needing to be cared for in isolation.
We’d like to thank all of our sponsors for kindly supporting us and contributing to the success of this event. The list includes AirAsia, Asia Escape Holidays, HelloWorld Travel Limited, C&M Italiano, Smiths Enterprises PTY.Ltd, Bintang Beer, Hatten Wine, The Gelato Bar, Amadea Resorts & Villas, Menjangan Dynasty Resort, Prime Plaza Hotel & Suites Sanur, Mason Adventures, Bali Bird Park, Bali Hai Cruise, Taru Bali, Waterbom, Bali Quad Discovery Tours, Bali Safari & Marine Park, Bali Zoo, Ena Dive, Nusa Dua Theatre, Bali Vista, Marine Walk, Bali UTV, Finns Beach Club, Odyssey, POD Bali Chocolate, Secret Garden Village, and all of Bali Dynasty Resort’s loyal guests and friends for believing in this worthy cause.
Nyepi is one of the most significant events on the Indonesian calendar and it should top your list of things to experience in Bali in 2019. Nyepi is the first day of the Saka New Year and it is a vivid celebration of traditions, spirituality and rebirth. This annual event sees entire communities come together to welcome in the New Year. On the eve of Nyepi, the Balinese people take to their local temple for quiet prayers, warning away any negative spirits for the year ahead. At around 7pm, villages become filled with colourful papier-mâché models known as Ogoh-Ogoh. These bright and frightful puppets represent omens and are paraded through streets across Bali to celebrate their departure. The next morning, Bali welcomes the Day of Silence. All activity on the island comes to a complete stand-still. Visitors are expected to stay indoors and respect this sacred tradition.
