I really enjoyed this place, it was the first restaurant we sat in the city center and the food was delicious. Music in the background, a jolly atmosphere and such a welcoming staff. During the evening & at night there's live Irish music and this is definitely one of the palces to go to for a fun night.

Was in Dublin for the day as a cruise ship port stop. Asked a Taxi driver a nice place to eat and he brought as here. What a Little Gem! Lovely building over several floors, with little nooks and crannies, absolutely full of character. Wood paneling walls with carvings and decorations suitable to an Irish pub. Warm welcome from the...

We stumbled upon this pub on our last visit to Dublin and sought it out our first night back in Ireland. The fish chowder is outstanding and a meal in itself. My husband and I split a Fish & Chips, which is one of my favorite F & C of all time. The decor is very comfortable. I think my... More

We went here several times on a recent visit to Dublin. It is a good pub with a good range of beers and a nice atmosphere. We ate here once and unfortunately they made a mess of the order. After waiting 45 mins and questioning it, they rushed it through. I'd have to say it seemed a bit cold then... More

Went here on Sunday October 12th and the food and beer was awesome. Had the Fish and Chips and got a Paulander Beer to Drink. An Electric Atmosphere and plenty of areas to sit in this place.

I had a lunch in at O'Neil's in november, it was a very delightful meal. Traditional Guinness Irish stew, it was very delicious. The pub is a very nice place, tables clean and sofa very comfy, toilets very clean. They have also live Irish folk Music, you can enjoy a pint of guinness in a very typical atmosphere. You can't...

In doing research for our trip, we looked up best places to get a "real Irish breakfast", and this bar/restaurant appeared to be it. We came in right at opening, and the staff were preparing for a city inspector later that day, so everyone was cleaning and arranging like mad. However, this didn't prevent them from serving us a magnificent... More

this was a real Irish but, the food was great and not too expensive and we got to taste some very good beer, not just the Guinness! I was very well decorated and you could feel the Dublin life in it! We were there on a Friday evening and it wasn't crowded, just perfect!

Another visit to this Dublin bar did not disappoint. Really good pub atmosphere at lunchtime from a mix of visitors and locals having a pint! Food is superb - the prices are fair for really good home cooked dinners, superb selection of roasts and the like. Sandwich selection tops too. Staff very friendly. Not been there at night but for...
