Both the atmosphere and the food were among the best of our trip, although we only realized that in retrospect because this was our first night in Ireland.

If you want a taste of the real thing get down to O'Connor's around 10pm on a Thursday night and you'll be more than satisfied. You'll be treated to the performance of a small ad hoc group of local musicians - not all of whom are Irish, but they are local! The craic is great and, later on, the bar even serves plates of sandwiches free of charge! Great music and great hospitality!

Went two separate times each time the food was delicious, just recommend going early or when it's not primarily a bar. The staff was very helpful in explaining what they had to offer.

Lovely evening spent at O'Connor's. Staff were very helpful, friendly and attentive. We enjoyed a meal of beef burger and cheese and potato cakes.
