We went as 2 couple and Dublin isn't cheap but this place was £12 Aprox each for a massive lamb shank and loads of sides. It's a self service carvery set up and the portion sizes are great! Atmosphere really good ! Def recommend if you want a proper grubs up big meal!

I thought O'Neills carvery style dining was unique, fresh and very good. You get on a cafeteria style line and choose from some amazing entrees, the lamb shanks were huge and delicious, the ham hock was fabulous, the Sheppards pie was fresh out of the oven and amazing. Then you pick any or all of the fresh sides they have... More

I stopped by here for a bite to eat recently. I don't know if I have ever been in a pub with as many rooms, nooks and crannies as this one, very interesting as it provides lots of places to grab a quiet drink with friends. Food is ordered by grabbing a tray and getting in line to pick what... More

I wanted to eat at a restaurant that made delicious Irish food which locals enjoy. My concierge at the hotel recommended I try Lamb Stew. I took one look at this restaurant and was sold. It definitely was an interesting experience because you pick your own seats, go on line to order food, and then sit back down in the... More

We visited this bar with severe hangovers looking for the best Sunday Roast in town!! It was heaving busy so it's obviously a very popular place!! The carvary looked amazing, the choices were extensive!! There was also a separate menu which could be made to order. The food was fantastic, although we did have a slight problem with ordering as...

Went three times in two days. Hearty traditional Irish meals, with a surprisingly diverse variety of offerings. Very tasty, huge portions and great value for money. Will return if again in Dublin.

The atmosphere here is great. It's unique because it is a self-service eatery. That being said, the food was only ok at best. They make orders of whatever is on the menu and it sits under heating lights until you go to the carvery and order. It would be better if it were freshly made, as my shepherd's pie had... More

We wanted a carvery for dinner. There is plenty of choice. Signs to say, take a menu, get a table, go to carvery and chose. Pay and return to table. Its all self service. Lots of tourists, hard to get a seat but plenty available upstairs. Food is reasonably priced. Roast lamd was 13.50 euros and Beef and Guinnes stew... More

We were recommended this pub by a taxi driver, and it was a good choice. It was unique in that it's a self-service eatery, where instead of having a waiter you go to the Carvery yourself and order what you want, sort of "a la carte" style. I had the shepherd's pie and it was absolutely amazing. It was aesthetically... More
