a very good lunch 2 near the trinity college

Self-catering pub, nothing amazing, but good food, beautiful irish pub and average prices. Recommended for a quick lunch/dinner if hanging out in dame street

This place came highly recommended by many locals in Dublin. The place was jammed when we got there, but once we found a seat it was well worth it. You go up to a counter to order and they make you a platter (almost buffet style). The food was delicious, cheap and the place was hopping. After dinner they had... More

Glad I read the overview about how this place works. Find a table. Go to bar grab a drink. Then get in line to get food buffet style. Then back to table. The atmosphere is authentic Irish pub. Dark wood windy staircases that go up to rooftop smoking area. Two levels of bars with small alcoves. Not as expensive as... More

Went here for a pub breakfast. Good Full Irish, quite a bit of a waiting time, hasty service, some confusion to our order. I would say an average experience though a very good location.

This is a gorgeous old building in the city centre, like a maze, with nooks and crannies everywhere. We love it as you can be right in the thick of it or find a quieter spot to sit. Just back from another trip to lovely Dublin and we ended up eating at O'Neill's three nights running. Personally, I probably would... More

This was our first stop when we hit the city. Very good buffet-style traditional Irish fare that was reasonably priced. Beer was also good and the ambiance was fantastic. Liked being there at lunch (opens at noon) because it was not as crowded yet the food and drink quality did not suffer. Very friendly staff as well.

We didn't eat in here however the menu looked reasonably priced. The drinks choice is extensive, the staff are all really friendly and there was a great atmosphere.

O'Neills was great. They have a variety of different beers, two stories of seating and they have live Irish music and dancers every night. The food was good, served buffet style, which was a little weird, but it all tasted delicious. It gets packed after 8 pm so I would show up early to get a seat.

This place was packed when we were there. Dinner is served buffet style with daily specials and traditional Irish fare. You basically stand in line and choose what you'd like, then find a table and seat yourself. There were lots of locals and families there, and it had a laid back atmosphere -- not 'fancy' at all -- just reasonably... More

We visited O'Neill's on the last night of our visit to Dublin. Every seasoned traveler knows you don't want to travel with a hangover but...the live Irish band and the perfectly pulled pints we just couldn't bring ourselves to leave. We would like to thank O'Neill's for some good beers, great memories, and a brutal head ache on the plane.... More
