Had a yummy and very reasonably priced toasted sandwich lunch and cheeky glass of wine whilst walking around north Dublin. Friendly, traditional and busy traditional pub ;-). Close to Merrion Square and St Stephens Green, Grafton Street and Trinity College.

Was a great place to stay right in the centre, the bar was lively and very busy, weekend wasn't long enough, will return. We personally didn't find rooms too noisy, we had room 1 and room 4. Thanks O'Donoghues for putting '50th' birthday banner up in our room.. Was a lovely touch!!

Stopped at O'Donoghue's for 3 nights, the pub is in a great location for getting around Dublin and close to a lot of the City's main tourist attractions. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, with a nice powerful shower. Not good if you don't do stairs, but the accommodation is accessed without having to go through the pub. The pub... More

A friend who used to live in Dublin brought me here to see the more local scene. Packed Irish pub. Older musicians sitting in a circle. Warning that the crowd takes the music seriously and will annoyingly shush you if you're talking. So only go if you're a serious music lover.

Very busy place with summertime crowds throughout the day and evening, but the bartenders keep up well and there is a steady flow of music. Location is central on St. Stephen's Green. Stopped by a few times while in Dublin - can't comment on the food but I don't believe that's the reason to visit. Go for Guinness, Jameson, and... More

Popped in here with a friend for a few drinks in the afternoon. The barman was friendly. It is completely different in the afternoon. A bit grotty - but the gents toilet was so smelly. This place makes a fortune from tourists and you would think the owners would invest in upgrading the facilities - the smell problem has been... More

Good place to stay to see all the sites of Dublin. Very close to Museums, St Stephens Green and Grafton St shopping area. Staff were friendly and bar was old and traditional with a good atmosphere and great Irish music. We stayed in the hotels room for 2 nights. Rooms were basic but clean and tidy and were cleaned daily,... More

I stayed here in a room above the pub and absolutely loved it. It's a small room but very clean. It's a great break from chain hotels. The staff is friendly. Located in a great place. I was able to walk to a great number of interesting places. Also enjoyed the traditional Irish music in the pub. The hospitality of... More

Good traditional Irish bar, the interior still looks like it probably did when it was first build which all adds to its lovely Irish charm. O'Donoghue's is also listed on the Guinness factory tour as one of the best bars for a Guinness so needless to say we had to give it a try and they weren't wrong
