I got the meatloaf lunch - it wasn't remarkable but was okay. The mashed potatoes had a big slice of cheddar cheese somewhat melted - sort of slapped ontop of the potatoes unceremoniously. If you like that sort of thing, well... The first server was very unfriendly but the second one earned her tip. At least she smiled. Some lady... More

$20 each to go upstairs to watch any GAA games! What a joke!!! Did they not hear of Irish hospitality! This place is a rip off! Another money making scheme to rip us off! Not impressed!

We had been to other local bars throughout our stay and spotted this one just off the main road on the last night. We decided to give it a go and were not disappointed. The barman was very helpful and went out of his way to ensure we were happy with our visit. The food was excellent and plentyful (I... More

Really disappointing in compared to other Irish bars in the area. We were in its sister pub the stage coach tavern earlier in the day. Where it was bright clean helpful. Oldcastle is dark dingy and the toilets are disgusting. There was 5 waitresses standing round chatting for an hour why they had so many on I don't know. There... More

We didn't love it but we didn't hate. I wouldn't tell anyone not to go but I wouldn't recommend it either. Service was not good and the food was marginal. Pricey for what you get. Great atmosphere. Location was close to hotel and subway.

I went here after reading the recommendations on here. Atmosphere was lively and good and I was quickly shown to my table. The order was taken and drinks arrived quickly. The waitress was attentive and kept popping back wanting to know did I want more drinks. The whole thing that spoilt it for me was the fact that I clearly... More

Excellent Irish Pub in Midtown NYC. We found the place walking around looking for a place to have drinks and eat something. We were surprise with the excellent service and incredible prices for NYC. The wine bottles started at high $20's. The food was great. Excellent Onion Soup and Pico de Gallo. highly recommended. We sit in front of the... More
