Great pub fare. But, you walk in, have someone in your party sit at a table. Then, you go over to the carving station and order your plate. You can get turkey, ham, lamb stew, etc. with sides. Order your beer too. Pay there then go back to your table and have the table saver go up and get their... More

A great pub pub with big sized portions of old food. We had oysters to start - shared it as the portion size is huge! followed by an Irish stew and their O'Neill's Cobb salad - we were stuffed!! Lovely food with lovely pints of Ale and Cider.

I would recommend this place for a casual typical Irish meal. We ended up there after a walking tour and we had a nice affordable meal we all enjoyed. The food was quite OK. Service: you get your own meal with a tray and there is no table service, No special remarks on the service. Decoration; very nicely decorated!

In all fairness to this historic, interesting, and conveniently-located pub, I have never had dinner here. However based on two poor lunches, I will never go back for a meal. A change from last year, apparently lunch is now... More

For lunch on a Monday we met a friend who has lived in Ireland for 3 years at O'Neill's. I'm glad we went with someone knowledgeable. You walk through part of the pub to reach the Carvery (like a buffet line), where you pick up a tray and request an entree. The staff put your entree on a plate and... More

we sampled the Guinness beef stew, the shepards pie, and the turkey dinner. We didn't realize we should pick our seats first and the get food -- but it worked out anyway! The place was crowded but we found a quiet corner and enjoyed the grub!

This place is the only place to eat in Dublin! On every visit to Dublin I am assured to come to this place only for the Guinness and Beef Stew! Honestly....I could happily hire the chef for myself!!

We were there on St.Patrick's day, and watched the parade on Large screen TV.....pub was packed, of course. They offered a carvery buffet, with ham, turkey and fab beef and corned beef with three veggies, roasted and mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean salad (or other choices) DELISH!!!! Live music at 9PM

This is a nice and authentic Irish bar with good food. TIP - when you go with the Sandeman free tour around Dublin, you can get a voucher to have diner + soft drink in O'Neill's for only 10Eur!
