Reviewed yesterday NEW

This place was my introduction to Dublin. Called in for a Guinness or two. Not too loud and great traditional food and lots of it. Very friendly staff and warming environment. Would have been happy to have stayed the night.

My family and I were in o'neills yesterday after being recommended by our taxi driver. Well situated in busy part of city next to Molly Malones statue. Looks quaint from the outside but when you go in it's like something back in time. It's meets every expectation of an old world Dublin. Carvery was amazing and portion sizes were unbelievable,...

My ma and I have been to Dublin on multiple occasions, and this was our first stay at O'neill's. We wish we had known about this adorable place before. Jerry, one of the owners, makes a mean Irish breakfast. The staff working for O'Neill's were really hard-working and kind. We loved the cleanliness of our room. Our bathroom was roomy... More

We actually went here by accident, intending to go to a different O'Neils. But we were already there so we stayed. We had a traditional Irish dinner and a couple of pints. Most people were watching a rugby game. But it was quiet enough to hold a conversation. I'd recommend it.

Very helpful and friendly. Would stop in the bar at the end of the day and Hugh would pull up a chair and have a... More

This is by far the best place I have stayed in during my visit to Ireland. There is no front desk, you check in at the pub and the wonderful gents running the place hand you a key and show you to your room. The guesthouse is next door. Classic Victorian pub dating to 1885, gorgeous interior and a fantastic... More

Great place to grab a drink, listen to music and especially grab traditional Irish food. I had the lamb stew and there Guinness stew both were excellent. The place is so good that its a big place and even on weekdays getting a seat before you get your food can be a tall order. But its worth the wait and... More

We stay twice a year in O'Neill's. It's a lovely place, well located. Nice rooms with comfortable beds. The house with all the flowers outside Looks great. It's one of the most beautiful Pub's we've ever see. We appreciate the friendly Service of the O'Neill Brothers. We will always go to stay there wehn we are in Dublin.

O’Neill’s is just around the corner from Trinity College and we went there for dinner (what the Irish call their noon meal) after visiting the Book of Kells. We were ready to rest our feet and to eat and drink. O’Neill’s is a traditional Irish pub (short for public house) famous for its atmosphere and great food. When you first... More
