Four of us visited O'Connor's for lunch on a very wet and windy day (it is Ireland after all). The experience really cheered us up and set us up for another 'good soaking'. Excellent and charming service from our waitresses and very good, very fresh sea food. Three of us had a really good fish chowder and my wife described... More

Nice restaurant that was very busy on the night we visited. Large portions and the food was goof. Not very innovative, but well prepared.

I have been in some fine seafood restaurants and while not actually the best O'Connors is well up there. When you go for an Early Bird experience quality isn't the main consideration. You would like quality but the bill is the main yardstick of success. The calamari starter sort of set the tone. I'm sure the batter was somebody's granny's... More

Very fine food. They had an "earleybird" menu of two courses for 22 euros that was very good value. The calimari was "melt in your mouth" good, and the seafood risotto just as good.

Forget about those tiger prawns that arrive frozen from Thailand, taste the real thing here. Roll up your sleeves and be prepared to get your napkin splattered as you enjoy a bowlful of the best cooked and sauced prawns I think you will ever eat. Yes they are served in the shell, and you have to do the work yourself,... More

The food here was really good and presentation excellent. The service while very friendly was a bit slow at the end of the evening, we had to wait a long time before anyone came over between courses but in saying that we were in no rush so didnt mind. The Oreo cheesecake was amazing!!

Dined here this evening, first visit for us. Warm welcome from a friendly waitress. Nice table towards the back of this tastefully decorated space. Nicely composed menu, mostly favouring seafood dishes. Then we were shown the specials board. WOW - what a spectacular selection of fish dishes showcasing the very best from local waters. I ordered the chefs seafood basket... More

We were delighted with our meal at O'Connors - all 31 of us! I recommend, without hesitation, to anyone who appreciates fine cuisine - fish or meat. Great value with first-class service. Thank you Patrick and staff
