Excellent pub food

Our family of seven had a great evening here. Good atmosphere with helpful staff. The food was really good, with the mussels and the Guinness stew particular highlights. Probably the best meal we had during our four night stay in the Burren area!

Went on a Sunday night with my grandchildren to hear the trad music. Fun little place, gets very crowded. I would recommend going early to get a table before the music starts. Food was regular pub food. Kids loved the music.

Great food, service and music! The action is in the center of the pub so make your way inward to the table reserved for musicians.

We stayed in the nearby hostel and ate here two nights in a row as the food was so good. Lovely menu, nicely presented and decent sized portions. It's a very busy pub, packed with tourists but we never had to wait long for our food. Would highly recommend this pub for eating.

It is a large pub with three seating areas inside. Service is good, food is good and the prices are reasonable. They had live traditional Irish music (session) at 9:30 p.m. The only other pub we went to was Fitzpatricks, and O'Connor's is SO much better. We arrived and knew that it was what we were searching for. There was... More

It was 22 years since I last visited O'Connors and it had changed a bit, understandably since then but mostly retained its charm and atmosphere. Food was ok, pub grub, nothing spectacular. Service was very good and staff friendly so for that reason alone I would be happy to go back

But somehow they manage all the guest and remember where to seat them and toget their food orders to them. Because it's so crowded you get to sit with strangers and have nice conversations about where they're from and where they've been.

Fantastic musicians take audience from heartache to humor, singing about waning love, creatures of The Burren, melancholy on a rainy Boston night with a heart back in County Clare. Loved it all. Food very good, we had the seafood chowder and warm goat cheese on spring greens two nights in a row. Wait staff super nice and crazy hard working!... More
