Very good. Real pub with many kinds of Irish bear and Ukrainian. Food is classic for pubs. Music is traditional Irish.

Every time I visit Kiev this is a must place to go. They have a nice beer selection. The food is very good and they like to serve large plates.The location is just a block from the center of town.

Having Irish ancestry, I can appreciate a great Irish pub. When I planned a trip to Ukraine, I found O'Brien's in Kiev and made a point to go there. We first went on a Saturday night. I made a reservation for a table near the...More
