Had many a great nights in Charly's. Great food, lots of tv's showing different sports. Really friendly polite staff. Loads of space inside and out so regardless of what you're looking you'll find it at Charly's.

I had to give back the IPA. It was watery and did not taste like an IPA at all. The good side: the waitress took it back after reassuring that they do not water down the beer. I just ordered a Pilsner and that was OK. The fish and chips tasted fishy, I didn't complain in order not to sound... More

I was there last month for my office meetings and Charly was close to my hotel. I visited there consecutively three days in late hours with colleagues for drinks after exhaustive work days. It is a nice place to chat / watch tv, relax and listen to music with your drinks. Very friendly and witty staff and they will make... More

Stopped in here just after my partner had proposed to me during a long walk along the lake! We stopped here as it was close to our hotel and we thought they might be showing champions league football - a distraction tool for my partner while I called and messaged all my family and friends to tell them the good...

Friendly, attentive Irish barman made sure we were given a table so that we could order food. It was really busy at 7pm on a weeknight, really lively with a good atmosphere. Food tasted good, we had beef burger and veggie burger with good chips. Great choice of beers for a good night out.

Being British it's always a comfort to see a good, traditional Irish pub when you're in a foreign country. Also being British it's safe to say we're well acquainted with drinking establishments - and Charly O'Neills' has by far been both the best pub and Irish pub we've found in Geneva. We first discovered it after reading the frankly laughable... More

Not a bad beer and cider choice. Food is limited and very PUB type. Outdoor sitting lacks heating and blankets. There are 5-6 screens which can show different games on a big day and the prime game of EPL gies ti the main screen. Smoking allowed in outdoor sitting.

We just popped in for lunch and couldn't have had a nicer chap ensure we were properly looked after. The pub itself is fine (typical Irish pub abroad deck out) but the service was above and beyond and therefore made me want to write a review! Great music too!

Food is terrible and reminiscent of microwaveable M&S meals that have been overcooked. Location is pretty isolated from the rest of Geneva and Spring Brothers, by far the best Irish Bar in Geneva opened in the Old Town a few months ago. Reinvent yourselves and update your furniture and clean up this place as it is grubby and messy. And... More
