It is large and looks the part in side. A typical city centre Irish themed pub Service was OK. Food was not so good and poor value.

Great Irish Bar. Went here to watch the Six Nations Rugby (Wales v France) while in Kiev for our daughters birthday. Staff were fantastic. Local Beer was quite cheep. Never eat there but the food looked good. Definitely worth a visit.

Came here to watch a Premier League game and the place was very quiet. We went to sit at a table and were immediately informed that it was reserved, as were all the other empty tables. We sat at the bar and were served by...a bar man who failed to smile once. We had intended to eat but decided otherwise as the staff seemed so indifferent. We left after the game during which time no one came to sit at the empty tables. At least the football on TV was good.More

This was my first trip to Ukraine and I was eagerly looking forward to visiting the amazing sites this city has to offer,learn about the history of this proud nation and sample the great nightlife I had read up about Kuev back in my home...to Liverpool before starting my holiday here and O'Brien's Irish Pub was one great pub we found on our first day in this most eclectic of city's. Walking in and I knew I would enjoy my visit here, set over two floors,dark wood tables and chairs, tv's and big screens to enjoy the sport, all the Irish bric a brac adorning the walls you would expect to find in a good Irish pub, there's cool features aplenty throughout this pub,my favourite was the vintage motorcycle hanging over the staircase that brought you up to the top floor of this pub ,this is were we chose to sit . A very pleasant member of staff greeted us warmly, my twin brother Stephen and I got a guinness each ,these were poured in the correct manner even allowing time for the all important settle and were served in tip top condition, we just kicked back ,chilled out and took in the great pub we were in while sipping our guinness. My guinness was really good,a thick,creamy dark stout ,bursting with taste and most importantly served iced cold, a proper good guinness served by staff who know how to serve a good pint of the black stuff. As it was freezing cold outside and my brother and I were cosy and warm in this pub we decided to stay for another drink ,this time we chose a lager style beer, a local brew that was served in excellent condition being iced cold and sparkling, a really good light beer that was just as enjoyable as the guinness so top marks to the bar staff for serving such great drinks. We really enjoyed our guinness and beers in here before we moved on and for a first time visit we were totally impressed with this great Irish pub. O'Brien's Irish Pub is easy to locate along Mykhajilivska Vul. Opening hours are; Monday to Sunday, 11am till 2am. A wonderful Irish pub,great staff,great drinks,a pub I highly recommend you visit if your in the area.More

Our fault really. Stumbled across this pub when parched and in need of a pint. Sadly, Sunday evening probably didn't give us the best night to visit but the staff were very friendly and the beer and wine were well appreciated. ThanksMore

Hello! We are very glad that you liked both beer and wine! As well as our staff! and it’s very sad that, despite this, you gave us only three stars, only because we did not have guests at that moment ((( Thanks for the feedback!...More

If you want to chat over a pint of Guinness (and to be fair the Guinness wasn’t bad and reasonably priced) this is not the place but if deafeningly loud live bands playing bad cover versions of James Brown one end of the bar and...braying football fans watching the match the other is your thing, you’re in luck. Two stars given because the staff are attentive.More

Enjoyed just one round here at O’Brien’s. Sampled the 1715 Lvivske draught beer. The staff don’t speak the best English in the world, but are able to guide you through local drinks to buy. Quite a small bar yet there areplenty better to be visited...Kiev as opposed to just this classic Irish tavern. Nothing special to shout about.More

A good place to go and watch sport but the price of food and drink is insane for Kiev prices. We ordered fish and chips and the cheeseburger one lunchtime. Both very average and way over priced. Beer prices were at least 2-3 times more...expensive than comparable places elsewhere in Kiev. If you’re desperate to watch sport then it’ll do but outside of that wouldn’t go back. Staff are all Ukrainian and speak decent English but not very friendly considering it’s an Irish bar.More

O’Brien’s is a cool place to hang out. Lots of drink and food options with sports on tv. Can get very crowded when big games are on and for some reason they only open the extra downstairs seating in the evening. Good craic though

I came to watch the advertised Bournemouth Vs Everton EPL game and to my disgust the signal was so bad that the screen kept freezing. I had the Irish stew was pretty average. The staff just sit around and chat as if they have come...to work to relax and not to look after the customer. It's a real shame that business like this exist as they ruin the good reputation of Kiev.More
