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!

We stopped two times at O'Neills during our 5 days in Dublin. We found it to be a traditional Irish pub, with a great design and attractive vibe, full of personality, very well embedded in Dublin's landscape. It is located just opposite the tourist information office and you can't possibly miss it. One wee served a late breakfast here, enjoying... More

We stopped here for lunch, and shared a bowl of Guiness Stew. It was very tasty! This is a neat bar, very characteristic of what I expected an Irish pub to be. If you go, don't miss the cozy little snug" next to the front door.
