This was a great pub with traditional Irish décor, and many smaller rooms within the three floors. The beverage and food choices were varied and the servings plentiful. Most rooms had big screen t.v.s with more soccer games, but we discovered an upper room near the Whiskey Bar that was set aside for music. It started a bit late, but... More

A taxi driver recommended this place to us as it was central but not in the pricier Temple Bar. Carvery style with lots of choice and huge servings. Delicious food. Excellent value for money as well. It was very busy, but this gave a good atmosphere and it wasn't as if you had to wait longer for food because of... More

This delightful pub supplies food for what appears to be the working folk of Dublin. We did not know how to order and that may have been to our detriment. They offer either table service or a cafeteria type. We chose the shorter of the cafeteria sandwhich areas not knowing there was more. I think I'd give it another go... More

My wife and I stopped in O'Neills bar mid afternoon (before suppertime) a couple of weeks ago for a beer(Guinness) and a "toasty"(a toasted cheese sandwich with mustard) from the bar. The bar was a trip! No other tourists, just regulars to listen to while we rested up a bit. We didn't have a meal so we won't comment on... More

Great carvery, fish and chips (best in the city in my opinion) Irish and fish stews and sandwich bar. Great place to go in the evenings for great classic music and a wide variety of craft bears. There are a lot of little cozy nooks upstairs as well as the traditional Irish pub area. Because of the age of the... More

Dined here three times in a week, it was that enjoyable. They feature carvery meals, many different brands of drink and many cubby holes in which to enjoy them. The staff are friendly and patient with those who are new to the system. The carvery meats are fresh and very tasty with many veggies to choose from as well. This... More

Our tour guide from CIE Inter'l told us of this Pub. I'm so glad he did. Were went in for lunch in May'14 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Warning-the portions are BIG. I had carved roast prime rib & my husband had corned beef. This was a platter-not a sandwich. Don't miss this one. Best lunch on my 2 wk UK... More

This was a very busy restaurant, and a little confusing for us tourists. We weren't exactly sure how to get food, service, or find someone who could tell us these things. My husband eventually wandered down stairs and discovered it was a buffet and that we paid after picking our food. It was so busy, one of us had to... More

Great place to go to experience some traditional Irish culture. Good beer, good food, good music, good time. A little confusing to the tourists...several times we heard people saying, "Nobody really explains how this works." You get in line and order your food cafeteria style, then you order your drinks from the bar separately. Once you get the hang of... More
