Greta Irish bar near the centre of town, serving high quality, traditional irish & English cuisine - fantastic cod & chips, excellent bangers & mash, terrific steak n ale pie, plus the best burgers in Geneva and much more!

Such friendly service

We just popped in for lunch and couldn't have had a nicer chap ensure we were properly looked after. The pub itself is fine (typical Irish pub abroad deck out) but the service was above and beyond and therefore made me want to write a review! Great music too!

Food is terrible and reminiscent of microwaveable M&S meals that have been overcooked. Location is pretty isolated from the rest of Geneva and Spring Brothers, by far the best Irish Bar in Geneva opened in the Old Town a few months ago. Reinvent yourselves and update your furniture and clean up this place as it is grubby and messy. And... More

If you need an Irish Pub fix in Geneva this is the place! As an American traveling through Europe sometimes Dining out can be difficult and Service can be hit or miss. That is certainly not the case here at Charly O' Neill's, they have a wonderful atmosphere and the staff really makes you feel at home! Great selection of... More

A brilliant pub... Pauric, Fabrice and gang are the most friendly staff that you will find anywhere. Being honest this place makes you feel as if you are at home. Well worth a call

Was there a couple of years ago for a GAA football semi-final, the atmosphere was incredible and would rival any Irish bar I've been to at home (I'm from Ireland!). Had some chips to eat which didn't take long to come out and were piping hot! Staff were lovely and friendly, will definitely be back!
