We had a couple of hot coffees to take off the chill from a sudden summer thunderstorm. They were good, but the place seems a bit tired and worn. Even though the servers were pleasant enough, I think they were understaffed and tired.

Stopped in here few times while waiting for others to get ready during our trip. Bartenders were very courteous and the Guinness was poured to perfection. Did try the Mac & Cheese and Chicken Wings - stick to the drinks.

Enjoyed both a late night drink, and an afternoon Bailey's Coffee at Kitty O'Sheas. Both very nice. Saturday night they had two Irish musicians playing, and oh how nice they sounded! I had just spent 10 days in Ireland the month previous and they brought back nice memories. Nice place.

Visited Kitty's and was disappointed. The place looks unloved which is a pity as it used to be a buzzing place to visit downtown in years gone by. We ordered food which was mediocre and the server was having an affair with her mobile phone as it took most of her attention. Its such a shame as the Hilton is... More

We were not looking to eat here but it was a Sunday evening and most places were closed. Since it was close to our hotel we decided to give it a go. The beer was great and the food was a real surprise. Nothing fancy but of high quality. There was a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very helpful.

My daughter ordered shephards pie. She has never heard of it, and I said that it is just stew with potatoes, so don't expect much. I was very wrong. It was amazing, and I didn't think you could say that about stew. I had the fish and dhips. The fish was nice an fluffy, and so were the fries. Very... More

Stopped in here on two occasions as it was very close to our hotel. I would agree with other reviewers that the food was dissappointingly average as was the service. Does not have the friendliness that one expects in an Irish bar.

Efficient but not so friendly service at the bar. Salad was great!!! Served in an ice cold bowl with super fresh ingredients. Had a late dinner that was quite satisfying. The potato flat bread was good, as was the turkey wrap. Live music was enjoyable.

We dropped in for a snack. The sweet potato tots were so good, we came back for dinner -- and wound up here again the following day. Kitty O'Sheas serves really terrific pub grub, like Fish and Chips and Shepherds Pie. Kind of a limited menu, but all of it is done really, really well.

Went on recommendation of a well-seasoned traveler who said this would be authentic Irish food. Definitely a pub with grub, but I found the fish chips very very very oily and the chips very soggy. I'll look elsewhere for Irish next trip.
