We stopped in for lunch at the carvery and a pint. Guinness in Ireland is always perfection. My meal was excellent, my friends meal (hake) had a lot of scales. However, portions are big so we had enough to eat. It is pricey. He did not want to register a complaint but I am confident the issue would have been... More

Had a great meal at O'Neill's on July 18, 2014. A bit confusing at first but once we figured it out it was easy. Fish and chips - 12.95 Euros. Rib of Beef - 12.50 Euros. Jamison and ginger - 6.75 Euros. I would go back today if I did not need a plane ticket.

Amazing buffet food pub!! You choose your dish and stuff it up with salad and very reasonable prices, hard to find in Dublin :-) Great atmosphere as well!

Oh how I miss this place. A perfect pub when you are on your way to England. The food is second to none. Lovely colcannon, lovely Guinness on draught. I will be coming back when I visit the family, every time.

I chose this restaurant from numerous recommendations of authentic Irish cuisine in the City center. I liked the lamb shank that had gotten good reviews, so here we dined. Luckily there were no crowds the afternoon that we arrived. It is cafeteria style, so you let the server know what you want, and they provide it on a plate and... More

Shout out to Oneills pub - right across from the Molly Malone statue. Reasonably-priced good irish cuisine and fast cafeteria service.
