This hotel is huge but very intimate with lots of nooks. It is filled with memorabilia beautiful carved furniture, amazing views from upstairs, great food, lots of beers on tap, good music and basically a little bit of Ireland to treasure!!

The food was very salty. I was not able to eat it. The staff was not nice and friendly at all. I don't recommended it for food.

I went here for lunch with a friend because our cab driver highly recommended it & said they'd won a lot of awards for best pub food. So we figured we just had to check it out. When we walked in no one greeted us and I had to interrupt a conversation between a waitress & bartender to figure out... More

While on holiday in Ireland this became or go to pub in Dublin. The mood was replaced, beer was excellent & the food was above want you'd expect in a pub. We had the pleasure of visiting a half dozen times & were never let down. Attempted to try all the beer on tap but gave up. Over 50!

It was busy and crowded so difficult to find a seat even though it's a big place. You order from the counter and take your own food kind of like a cafeteria. Unfortunately, the staff seemed very disinterested and didn't respond nicely when the gentleman in front of me was asking for specific side dishes and to leave gravy off... More

O'Niell's was recommended by a local. We stopped in for a pint and stayed for dinner. A great mix of locals and visitors in all the many rooms and floors that make up O'Niell's. We stopped in several more times on our stay in the city and it always seemed packed but we managed to find a spot to sit,... More

I stopped in for lunch or at least a drink. Very claustrophobic! Staff were rude. Finally got a pint, but not even a spot to sit down! Food smelled good,but not worth the hassle to find out!

Of all the fantastic bars in Dublin the best by far for me is O'Neill's on Sussex Street. Lovely, friendly staff, cracking ales/stouts, fabulous food and some of Ireland's most talented musicians playing upstairs. Incidentally, make sure you grab a table BEFORE you buy breakfast/lunch/dinner! My wife and I are back in O'Neill's at the end of May 2015 (after... More

Came here with friends, wooden panels on all sides, a real maze of a place, classic irish bar, plenty of nooks and crannies to lose yourself in.
