Let's try it!

We went there for S.Patrick's day after the parade, obviously it was full of hungry people. In spite of a great crowd we ate quite soon. Old and typical location, strategic position, good food in self service style. Clean and big bathrooms. Standard price for a cheap traditional-meal.

Dinner in Dublin the day before St. Patrick's Day....you guessed it, BUSY, BUSY, BUSY. We headed to O'Neills on the recommendation of a local as a good place to get some dinner. O'Neill's is a 5 story bar and restaurant located in downtown Dublin. It was a busy place and we had to wander around for 5-10 minutes before we... More

I was here in Dublin just for seven hours on a lay over flight, I got into town and asked the best place to get some authentic Irish food. Without hesitation, the guy wrote down the name and gave me directions. I had the Irish stew made with Guinness and roast potatoes and carrots. So much food. The beef in... More

Food, service, beer. Great smoking area. A step out of temple bar and all the better for it. Go Upstairs for best experience. Do yourselves a favour head here before temple bar, behind bank, straight up from wax works museum.

Fab lunch in O'Neills this week. Fresh food, lots of it. And the surprise bonus - actual polite and pleasant staff; I thought there were none left in Dublin eateries!

We went to see the statue of Molly Malone - and then saw O'Neills across the street. It looked so lovely from the outside, with lots of beautiful flowers. We decided it was time to give our feet a rest - and to quench our thirst with a pint. There are so many different spots to sit...nooks and crannies all... More

I have been frequenting O'Neills pub in Pearse Steet for many years and, quite simply, there is no better lunchtime carvery in Dublin. With daily staples such as lasagne always available, there is also a wide variety of other options to suit any palate. The homemade burgers with pepper sauce and the Dutch gammon steak (on the menu far too... More

Visited O'Neills for the first time recently. Can't believe I wasn't here before in Dublin. We were a group of friends on a pub crawl and it was the perfect pint and the perfect location. Arguably the nicest outdoor smoking area. It even has a widescreen for matches! Place was fairly hopping, and the prices were reasonable. Will be back... More
