Description: 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.

“Best steak in Dublin”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

I've being gong here since the restaurant opened and have never had a bad meal. They start with the most delicious cheese bread and chili muffins and they are both sinfully yum. I can't tell you what the starters are like as I give up on them years ago as I was struggling to finish my main course. Now I go happily from the bread & muffins straight to my mistake. If I've any room left afterwards I'll tackle a dessert. Expensive-Yes, Excellent - Yes, staff very polite and friendly.

“Always a nice treat”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This has been my fourth visit to this restraunt and i always enjoy it. my wife and i were celebrating our 1st anniversary and when i was booking the table, the reservations asked was it a special occassion. when we arrived, they told us that we would be a few minutes late getting our table becuse they were getting one ready. They arranged a lovely table overlooking St.Stephens green. the service was always good. The oval bar is always a nice place to chill and have a quite chat. Dont be under the illusion that its full of snobs. I am a middle class guy and i didnt feel totally out of place here. I wouldnt eat here every week but if you like steak, its definatly a nice treat. The steak comes on its own so make sure you get some sides. The crab salad or pheasant starter is very tasty.

“Genuinely Good Value for Money”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I know Ireland is expensive but looking at the menu here i thought it was really 'Taking The Mick' and was fearful of another emperors new clothes type experience full of hype and anticipation just to find out the food was the usual old bull. Clients had asked to go though so i was happy to try. I was very pleasantly surprised, a Fillet at about €50.00 that was actually well worth €50.00 and possibly one of the best pieces of meat i'd ever had. The whole epxerience was well worth it, service was exceptional, food was excellent and the overall evening a delight. The high ticket value of the meal was actually great value considering the whole experience
