Amazing but so pricey

I went here for dinner. The restaurant itself is nice, nicely laid out with good staff. The food is very, very good. I had three courses and enjoyed them all. The bread served at the start of the meal is among the best I've ever had. Unfortunately, the food isn't good enough to justify the price... read more

I am fortunate to have been given the blessing of Shanahan's on the Green as part of a business trip. Yes, this did include a trip to the Oval Office, and JFK's rocking chair. The Filet was superb, along with all the side dishes, and heavenly dessert. The sampling of whiskeys downstairs was superb!

Shanahans is very up market and very expensive. However if it's a special occasion and affordable for you it's an amazing experience. I Don't bother with starters as the mains are huge . Onion rings are amazing ..absolutely superb. .

This venue was picked on recommendation and while the surroundings are most definitely up market and the staff were friendly and attentive I felt that the whole experience was deflating. The menu was limited in choice, especially for mains as there were 4 choices of steak a fish option..no chicken and no obvious vegetarian option. The wine was kept off... More

One of the absolute best restaurants in Dublin. The food is always fantastic, the service is excellent and the venue itself is classical. Would definitely recommend the early bird menu which is unbelievable value. Can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Its perfect for a special occasion or if you want to spoil yourself. You will not be disappointed.

visited Shanahans for our anniversary last night. the staff were very courtious and attentive. Food was excellent but the portions were very big. A good complaint though for some!! I was surprised at how thick the steaks were and the fact they still manage to cook them perfectly.

Shanahan's is a high end establishment; normally travelling on a modest budget, we booked in to celebrate special occasion. It was a miserable summer evening in Dublin, raining stair rods. On arrival, it was clear there was a mis communication on the reservation, and we had been booked for the following day, but that was taken in stride, the sopping... More
