It's always on my list of restaurants when I visit Dublin. Whether it be upstairs in the main dining room, elegant, or downstairs, a bit more casual. Either way, you can't go wrong...The staff are wonderful and friendly, and it's always a pleasure to see the Manager, Martin Clegg, who makes everything run sooooo smooth.!!

We waited about 40 minuets for a table and if like us you haven't booked it's so worth the wait !! Truly a first-class restaurant. Impeccable service. lovely comfortable décor. Food is 5-star -- amazing steaks, We had the 12oz Filet Mignon that was cooked to perfection and with so much flavour in every bite. Don't miss out!!!!!!

After eating in some of Dublin's greatest restaurants I had high hopes. We came for the early bird and the service was great. The food was good but wasn't anything special. It disappointed me a little as I took my parents here for their birthday. In saying that...will I go back.. yeah I probably will but not rushing back I... More

The Friday lunch at 50 euro per head is terrific value and incredibly tasty. The steaks are delicious as are the tobacco onions. Staff are attentive and extremely polite and helpful.

Visited here by accident in search for a quick pre-theatre bite to eat. Looking up Trip advisor and not looking at menu we rocked up in usual tourist attire looking for the advertised American steakhouse. As soon as we stepped through the door we had an idea we had made a mistake and that it wasn't the sort of steakhouse... More

My husband and I visited Shanahans again last Friday night, we have been many times and I would say it is the only restaurant in Dublin that consistently gets it right, every time. There is no better steak in Dublin, all of the food was sumptuous. The service was top class, perfection. The dining room is beautiful, elegant and perfectly... More

Simply put, the best steak you can eat in Ireland. A little on the expensive side, but for a special occasion this place is a must visit.

We dined here for the first time last weekend. We asked the hotel concierge to recommend a good steak restaurant in Dublin and he highly recommended this one. As soon as you enter the place, you can feel the class and sophistication that it simply oozes. It is reminiscent of one of the fabulous steak restaurants that line the streets... More

We visited Shanahan's on the Green in October 2014 for a evening drink. Upon entering the venue we were greeted by several staff who had impeccable customer service. We were shown to the lounge bar down stairs which was great. The US President memorabilia on the wall is amazing. We enjoyed a drink and heard the story/history about the venue... More
