A real Irish pub in the heart of Dublin. Good music, good people, good craic. An old school pub you have to visit if you are in town. Perfect beer, great live traditional music. This pub is famous for being the Dubliner's favourite pub. You will love it.

One of many atmospheric wooden panelled pubs in Dublin, consisting of several bars and a large heated courtyard. Live music on several nights each week, and good beer. Cannot comment on room or the food menu.

I stayed at O'Donoghue's while I was in Dublin. I chose it because of it's location close to St. Stephen's Green. From the minute I arrived, I felt welcome. I had help with my bags, and directions to anywhere I needed to go. The room was a bit on the older side, but very comfortable. The wi-fi was sketchy, but... More

This may not be a posh, modern hotel but its clean, comfortable, in a great location and is very good value for money. O'Donoghue's is an extremely busy and lively pub set on a busy main road, so I was expecting to hear a lot of noise but my top floor room was surprisingly quiet and just a faint din... More

Stopped in here for a pint of the blackstuff with some friends also from London. What a pub what an atmosphere loved everything about it. Espacally the authentic Irish music being played, the guys even took a request from my partner made her night. Fantastic pub.

Very comfortable room, wonderful location near Trinity College. Spar across street for food and wine etc. Pub noisy at night but one does not stay in a pub and expect quiet. Great price for location and friendly service. Highly recommend but not for those who cannot handle some stairs!
