Great Celtic jam in the middle of our Sunday with a 10 piece band. Lovely music. Nice brews and good service. Menu was limited to only 3 items (Irish stew, veggie soup, ham and cheese sandwiches). We would definite go back. Lively atmosphere a short walk from st Stephens green

Considering the price and the location, I didn't have high expectations for the room but it was perfectly clean and comfortable. The only downside was the TINY shower. The room was quieter than I expected given the pub downstairs (which is awesome, btw!). Added bonus - you can take your pint up to your room!

Can only speak to the pub (had no idea it was also a hotel. We had great fun drinking and listening to the traditional music. Atmosphere was tremedously friendly, everyone having a great time. Liked it so much we cam back the next night for a nighcap.

Just a quick review this time. The best thing about O' Donoghue's is location. It is close to everywhere, good airport access and in the same time you are in the centre within walking distance to restaurants, pubs and museums. Hotel itself is ok. You get what you pay for. But it is clean and tidy. Towels are changed daily,... More

The pub was nice but here I am making a review for the rooms. So I travelled there last year so maybe now some things have changed. I had a private single room, but aparently it was very big. Due to the fact that I was coming late, the pub was already closed, so I didn't have any problem with... More

Absolutely love this traditional Irish "real" pub. No fancy stuff here! Relaxed atmosphere with an open fire during the colder months.Perfect to experience some real Irish "craic" away from the madness of Temple Bar. Perfect location on Stephen's Green too. A must visit!

good service and great atmosphere in this old Dublin pub.The Sunday afternoon Jammin session was of a high standard, relaxed and varied. The bar served a limited menu which was tasty and inexpensive helping to soak up the guinness.Greatly enjoyed our experience.Thanks.

And NOT gone here! It's traditional but still raw & not touristy. Table service, top quality Guinness, friendly staff and clientele & a warm red lit side cavern for smokers that doesn't bother the no smokers. The traditional fiddley-dee music is in the back ground but not irritating, so if you like a pint of the black stuff, a trip... More
