It got good reviews on Trip Advisor and was very busy so we thought we would give it a try. I really wish we hadn't. First, you have to be prepared to get up and get your food. That would have been fine if the food was good but it was terrible. My husband had a vegetable soup which was... More

It is a nice place to have a beer but not for lunch. The food is ok with a medium price (15 euros for a baby ribs) but the meat was overcooked. I do not recommend the place for lunch or a "light" dinner (everything is too fat).

One of best places we found for good home made food!! There was a massive selection and it was absolutely delicious. We were both completely stuffed for the rest of the evening and the price was one of the best we found as well! Definitely recommend going here!!

Nothing fancy a bit like a school cafeteria but in a pub. Food is really good, a car art style set up with most of the meals served from there. The corned beef, turkey and ham are all delicious.

Came here for beer and food. The Irish Guinness stew was amazing. My fish and chips were cold as I suspected they would be after I made the order. I noticed on previous orders that the staff would leave food on counter for a while before sending to tables. Not very good. The staff I also found to be very... More

We were in Dublin with our kids of 12 and 13 years old and this was a great place to eat and enjoy the Irish atmosphere in a town where all the pubs are not allowed for -18 after a certain hour. We had great food and great irish beers.

A hopping place. This is the second time we've eaten here. Both times, the food looked better than it tasted. I had the stew and it was good. If you order a burger, be prepared to wait more than 35 minutes...not a great choice for if you are starving. A friend of ours loves it here because of the carving... More

ONeill's was recommended to us to have a roast here by our hotel. Although initially it looked amazing it did disappoint. The pub itself was busy and had a nice feel about it, but the roast was a let down because of the vegetables. The roast beef and lamb were delicious and perfectly cooked and the Yorkshire pudding the biggest... More
