My wife and I ate at Shanahans on Wednesday 30th Nov 2016 for my birthday dinner. We had a great seat upstairs looking out onto St Stephens Green. The staff were very professional and friendly from the minute we entered to our last interaction with the lady at the desk when leaving and getting our coats. My wife ate from... More

Please do not take me wrong this is a very nice restaurant but just not as good as we expected and ,"average" for such top notch eateries. Upon arrival you are taken immediately to your table despite there being a very nice bar downstairs (1st time here so we didn't know until later). Service was professional and efficient throughout. The... More

So I was told that I had to book this place if I was going to entertain a client on a recent visit to Dublin - it did not disappoint. It's a great restaurant and had the feel of a private members club, with two or three floors of dining room, not crowded and set to make you feel at... More

It was raining and it was cold and we were looking for a place to get a decent steak so we didn't spend too much time looking at the menus at the door of each of Dublin's eateries but Shanahan's looks great from the street and when we went in and discovered there were no tables available without a booking...

We book Shanahan's for my birthday. We went for drinks in the Oval bar before dinner. The Oval bar is decorated like a gentleman's club with leather chairs and dark furniture. We went upstairs for dinner and were seated at the back of the restaurant I asked to be moved as it was quite noisy because the sound from the... More

Went to shanahans first the first time last night. Loved it. The bread at the start was delicious. I would obviously recommend the steak. The waiter was very pleasant and attentive. Looking forward to going again.

Visited for Friday dinner with friend with hunger fully on our minds. Food was excellent as usual and fresh bread, steaks and sides were superb . It's pricey but worth it as a real treat. Service has improved greatly from last visit but I think there may be a lot of new staff . We were lucky that one of... More

We were not expecting Shanahan's to be as superb as it was. We were looking for an "OK" restaurant. Shanahan's exceeded every expectation. The portions were very large. The service and wait staff were among the best and friendliest we've encountered. The chairs were extremely comfortable. Another HUGE surprise..we could hear each other for a change. ..and the food was... More

Mostly I enjoyed my meal in Shanahans, my rib-eye was good, perfectly cooked, even though it wasn't the most flavoursome steak I've ever had. Some of the smaller steaks were not so good, gristly and quite tasteless. The starters are mostly seafood, and i did enjoy the salmon, but the ceasar salad.. really there shouldnt be any extra charge in... More

We visited as a large group of friends and were well looked after. We started with drinks in the downstairs bar and then upstairs for dinner. Good food, good service and good company, what more can you ask for! A wonderful treat .

American Style Steakhouse and Seafood Restaurant featuring Certified Irish Angus beef and the freshest seafood and produce from Ireland's local bounty.

Shanahan's ethos is simple and sophisticated. Your experience begins upon arrival. Enjoy an aperitif in the Oval Office bar. Take a moment to inspect the impressive collection of memorabilia adorning the walls. Each item commemorates the U.S. Presidents with an Irish connection or ancestry. Marvel at the bar's centrepiece, JFK's rocking chair from Air Force One.

Dining in Shanahan's is a delight. The elegance of the food and service, is maintained in perfect harmony with the warmth, which personifies the Shanahan's team.
