Last year the sandwich was mediocre; this year even the beautiful decor couldn't help a totally INEDIBLE lunch with horrific service! 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.

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!

After a guided tour in the city, my friends and I have been suggested to go to this pub. The food was very good and the atmosphere was just amazing! We have been there also for a drink the day after and it was unbelievable busy but because we went on St. Patrick's day. Anyway, a must see in Dublin!

We went after church for the Carvery, a favorite of mine when traveling abroad. It was quite a platefull. It was very good and "all the veg" was quite outstanding. Certainly one of the best carvery meals I've had.

We had a great lunch (Guinness stew) after the free walking tour. O'Neill's has a lot of character, Guinness is on point and everybody is very friendly.
