Copious (and cheap) food and great music

Although very touristy, you can get over that quickly when you see the quality of the food and what you get for your money. Don't be scared off by the "cafeteria" style way that they do things....just pick something you like, ask them to help you with what you should put on your plate, and grab a... read more

After repeated comments about Irish food from American friends and relatives, I highly doubt that they've been to O'Neill's! Wow, we went to this place not expecting much after a recommendation from a cab driver and we were blown away! The scrumptious food, with a heaping plateful of carbs along with whatever dish you have will make you want to... More

Came for dinner and the food was really good so came back for breakfast the next day. They have plenty of choices with a carvery and a sandwich bar if you want something light. The full Irish breakfast was a bit small for what I paid so I wouldn't recommend this but for dinner the servings were good sizes.

We enjoyed the pub so much on our first night, we went back on the second night too. The first night, we went for drinks, music, and dancers. The second night we ate there. Food was good, but it took quite a bit of time to get our meal, as we had to go downstairs and stand in the cafeteria... More

Fantastic Irish breakfast and great service. Monday through Friday the breakfast is priced at an unbelievable 6.95 euros. The outside is under repair and scaffolding is set up but is does not affect the inside - just prevents getting a good picture of the pub.

4 of us ate well for a reasonable price: leg of lamb, Guinness beef stew, turkey, beef, and deliciously seasoned vegetables. The beer was cold and satisfying.

A Dublin institution. The formula - tested over the years - is a dependable, ample and we'll flavoured big plate for lunch. And you have lots of carvery choice. My advice ..... get there a little early. Recommended

There wasn't a shortage of good food & pubs but I found the lay out of this particular pub fascinating. With lots of little rooms & a bar that seemed to stretch into another room. The service & good & the food comes quickly & I had one of the best Full Irish breakfasts here. Only stay away if there... More
