Live music and dancers made it a night to remember

Arrived at about 7pm and the only seats were upstairs we asked for a menu and we discovered that we had to collect our meal from the carvery downstairs. As we didn't want to loose the table we had to go in two groups. The carvery is set out like a canteen where you collect a tatty tray, knife... read more

Here you can eat very good food including fish'n chips at reasonable prices. Avoid the Templebar District. The batteries of taps for the different kinds of beer are amazing!

Located in the heart of the Grafton St. area, O'Neill's was the perfect spot for a lunch time break from shopping. We had sandwiches and Guiness, but there are hot meals served, all cafeteria style. If no seats found on the ground floor though, you have to carry your tray up a flight of stairs to a balcony to find... More

Good food and lots of little nooks and crannies - amazing history around the walls - even a smoking area on top floor!

O' Neill's on Suffolk Street. When I worked in Dublin city centre I would venture there every now and again for a carvery lunch. 4 years have passed since I was last there and the food is still as good. I had turkey and ham. €12.95 for a huge serving accompanied by roast potato, mashed potato, cabbage, green beans, turnips... More

O'Neil's is one of these must visit places in Dublin. It is busy - packed. You stand in line to get your food and you can struggle to find a seat to eat unless you are in early. However, it is the worth this minor hassle for the quality and quantity of food you get a modest price. The Irish... More

We got lucky. The entertainment was a couple of young guys, one on the lute or banjo and the other singing and and playing the guitar. They had a young couple who were very good Irish dancers. Most songs were Irish folk songs but one. He did Mumford and Sons well but I could have skipped it.

Great little place - went there once for breakfast (terrific Irish breakfast) and once just to hang while waiting for rest of the family as they shopped their hearts out. The place is great. the staff are very friendly. Beers are good - food is good and cheap.

O'Neil's in Dublin has a full Irish breakfast and it is cheaper by four euros than during the weekend. I suggest you try it. It comes with everything, and the pub is just fascinating.

We got into O'Neill's for a late lunch on Easter Sunday, on recommendation by our guide, and enjoyed a tasty and typical Irish pub meal at Rock-bottom price in a large but typical Irish pub. Dark, cosy, with a great variety of clientele and an even greater variety of beer and beverages, with a sandwich and a carver's counter, we... More
