Description: An Irish pub is the stuff of legends, just as Irish thirst is legendary. Pubs in Ireland are much more than a place for drinking, they are a social experience, part theatre, part debating chamber and part livingroom. The pub often seems an extension of the living room and in many rural parts of Ireland also act as the local shop-one corner serving butter and eggs and the other serving foaming glasses of stout. Our aim at Conor O'Neill's is to bring to Boulder a truly authentic traditional Irish Pub.

“Mediocre offerings, poor service”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

I have been to Conor O'Neills several times -- not really my choice, but because friends like the trivia despite their overpriced drinks and mediocre food. They've further diminished their value by cutting back on specials over the years, but the final straw was the service on my most recent visit: simply rude and uninformed.

Hi Lenin1991,

We're sorry to hear that you had such an awful experience with us. The good news is that we've changed our menu to include healthier items as well as brought back the FREE BEER specials on Monday - Thursdays! We currently offer drink specials every day of the week from 9pm-Close, with one of the best Happy Hours in Boulder (3-7pm EVERYDAY with $3 Pints, $3 Wines, $3 Wells and $3 Europlates!). We hope you'll come back and see us and try your luck at our Monday Night Trivia! Slainte!

“Eh...Same pub food, no surprises.”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

It's a cookie cutter pub like so many others. No surprises here, but not bad. Drinks are expensive.

“A Fine Irish Pub, Lassie”
Reviewed September 17, 2011

Travelling with 6 gal friends in search of an authentic Irish Pub.
One in the group is Irish, so we were in search of some authenticity.
It is a great little pub, very fun. A nice selection of brews. Service
was good. The food we had was above average. I would recommend
the pot pie which is made on site every morning.

“Great Atmosphere, Fun Bar”
Reviewed August 26, 2010

My wife and I visited this bar on two occasions during our recent stay in
Boulder. Good beer selection (including Guinness and Kilkenny on Draft) and a number of Malted and Unmalted whiskeys. The atmosphere is warm and friendly with many typical trappings of an Irish-themed pub. The bartenders and crowd are mostly college age with a healthy mixture of different generations. We attended trivia night on Monday which was a great deal of fun, and we also saw a live funk/jam band later that week. In short this bar is friendly, fun and has many reasons to patronize.

“Best Fish and Chips / Authentic Refuge”
Reviewed October 31, 2009

My English son-in-law confirms the fish and chips are on a par with what one will find at quality pubs in the UK, so that's as good a recommendation as any. My wife and I went there on a weekday before happy hour and service was excellent. Even though the mussels were a bit garlicy for my taste, Judith loved them beyond measure, giving this warm-up dish high marks. The portion size of the fish and chips I ordered was enough for both of us to share. Sitting near the fireplace was cozy at the rear of the pub and afforded us welcome refuge on a wintery Boulder afternoon.
