Perhaps a tribe in the Realm of the Mammoth Lords. But it would only be a small group: the region itself is wild and far more primitive than the celts.
Sarkoris may have worked but alas it's gone all pear-shaped into the outer rifts. I'd guess that anywhere you can find Kellids you can inadvertently find Celtic influences.
Yeah Sarkoris was it if anywhere. Now its the Worldwound.
Taken from the Lost Kingdoms Campaign Setting supplement:
Tutored by the druids, the tribes that rose upon the Plains of Sarkora flourished and praised the earth, the seasons, the beasts of the land, and the beings that held dominion over each. They raised monoliths to their gods and spilled blood in sacrifice, their tales and imaginings inspired and loosely guided by the teachings of the druids who walked among them. As the tribes grew, many spread to neighboring lands to plot their own destinies, realms that would eventually be known as Mendev, Numeria, the Realm of the Mammoth Lords, Ustalav, and others. In the shadow of the Northmounds, these nomadic tribes gradually solidified into clans and claimed territories, raising villages and clanholds all their own. This brutal but worthy land came to be known by the people of the plains as Sarkoris.Sarkoris was a land of disparate clans, neighbors, allies, cousins, and enemies united by boldness, culture, and shared religious traditions rather than a single ruler. Among them walked the druids, who spread the mysteries of nature and the planes to an awed people. Alongside faith in divine powers spread faith in druidic magic, sorcery, worship of godlike visitors summoned from beyond, and the mysteries of witchcraft. Sarkorians came to see the divine in all things, and came to worship much more than gods, even as they learned to dread and distrust the mortal magic of wizards.
Even if Sarkoris is mostly wiped off the map, there's still plenty of those folks living in Mendev, though they're having a hard time of it due to the worst elements of the Mendevian crusaders and the Worldwound at the moment.

The Mammoth Lords are Golarions equivilant of Robert E Howard's Cimmerians. Howard's Cimmerians were proto Celts.
If you are looking for real world examples what type Celts are you after.
Bronze Age you have the Halistat peoples.
Iron age you have the Spanish Celtiberians, Gauls, Belgicae, Tutones (German/Celt mix), Galatains in Turkey, and the various British people's.
Medieval, it's the Cornish, Welsh, Scots, Manx, Irish and Bretons in France.

Sarkoris was indeed the closest thing Golarion had to a Celtic-inspired region. There's pockets of that flavor still surviving there today, in fact.
Ah awesome, good to hear.
I had this drawing of mine laying around, from a little over a year ago, I made of a bagpiper with very celtic inspired but still fantasy armor, and i was wondering if i cozuld make him into an NPC.
