We tried to get in on a weekend night and couldn't so we went back on a Monday evening, and I think being there on a slower night gave us a really relaxed evening. We had pre fixe menu and it was perfect- steaks cooked to perfection. Excellent veggies, good portions. Waitstaff, wine guide, everyone was outstanding. Food is spectacular,... More

Dined here recently with a group of eight business colleagues. After hearing rave reviews, I was anticipated an extraordinary culinary affair. I was not disappointed. I chose Shrimps to start, Filet Mignon for main and Apple Tartlet for dessert. All were delivered exactly as expected. We accompanied the meal with an Italian Red Wine, which beautifully complemented our steaks. The... More

This restaurant is quite expensive and so we decided to try the early bird (still expensive at €50.00pp). However, it was delicious and the portions were a great size. Left feeling satisfied and well looked after.

This is the real McCoy when compared to classic steak houses in NYC ,Chicago or Buenos Aires such as Peter Lugar's, Smith & Wollensky's, Morton's, La Nazerenas etc. The meat (NY strip is my favorite) is perfectly cooked and I also recommend as starters the scallops, oysters , spinnach salad or mussels. The wine list is right up there but... More

We visited here for my girlfriends birthday and we're so looking forward to it as we heard it was one of the best restaurants in Dublin. The staff are great and it's a comfortable place but what you get for the money is most definitely not worth it. The food is ok but that is it, it's only Ok! We... More

Meat is great. Wine is very very expensive. Waiters are pushy and old school as the dining room. Not worth the 100 euros per person I had to pay at the end.

Recommended in the Planet Ireland as one of the fine dining. My dinner was all but fine dining and was charged embarrassingly over the top of the dinner value. I took my niece to treat her and instead we both were very surprised with the less than ordinary very expensive meals. For appetisers we had three types of smoked salmon... More

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.
