Visited recently and found it very welcoming, never seen so many beer and lager pumps and how they manage to remember them is amazing. Whilst we didn't eat here, the food looked excellent. Plenty of room and would recommend a visit..

This is a must our cab driver from airport told us to go here!Boy, did he ever steer us in the right direction. Several levels of pure fun. They taught us how to drink a Guinness like a local. If they find out your American they all want to talk & drink with you. Sooo much fun!!!!

We visited Ireland in January 2015 and this pub was recommended to us by our taxi driver. He said if you want a real taste of Ireland than go to O'Neills and he wasnt wrong. The pub was gorgeous with the victorian feel to it with its little windy staircase and little pocks of seats but with a really modern... More

Ate a lunch here on a Sunday - got the carvery, together with some locals. Don't think I've been that full in the past five years or so. Quality stuff, if simple (but good value - enough food for a whole day for 12.50 I believe). Lovely interior (it's really quite large, with multiple floors, and feels very authentic). Guinness...

Ate at the carvery....my God...enough to feed a family! Selection of beer met expectation though the bar manager was a drama queen and not particularly friendly. The price was reasonable, though I'm not sure I'd return since Dublin has so many other choices.

We found this place our first night in town and loved it enough to return several times during our visit. Many beer options on tap and in bottles, and full bar. When we tried to order food, we were told that we had to go to order in the next room. I'm so glad I did, as they had an... More

Called in on a Tuesday afternoon and had the carvery. Had a lasagne - massive and very tasty - plus six kinds of vegetable. It's not haute cuisine but it's filling and it's cheap, at €13, and it's of solid quality. No wifi upstairs, and drink is run of the mill Dub prices, i.e. expensive, so no edge over some... More

Called in here on the way to the airport had the baked ham dinner from the carvery. The meat and potatoes were ok but the vegetables were rotten. I am aware that cabbage is difficult to do in a carvery but this had a horrible vinegar taste the carrots looked like they were served with the roots still attached. A... More

Not very often happens to us that we make a wrong choice, but this time we have walked into a real tourist trap. We wanted some pub food on our last day for lunch, I wish we had gone somewhere else. The place was busy, the available tables had food leftover, dirty glasses and no one seemed to care to... More

I really enjoyed this place, it was the first restaurant we sat in the city center and the food was delicious. Music in the background, a jolly atmosphere and such a welcoming staff. During the evening & at night there's live Irish music and this is definitely one of the palces to go to for a fun night.
