Saw a man standing with a sign stating the pud did breakfast so we said we'd try it. After ordering our full Irish we were basically thrown our toast and tea/coffee. After waiting an hour (toast,coffee and tea now freezing ) we asked for our refund and received it by your none apologetic staff. Wouldn't touch off here again!

We loved this place! It was a quintessential Irish pub, complete with innumerable beers on draft and a soccer match. The food was delicious! It is a little odd though. You order the food like you would in a cafeteria. I thought the food behind the glass would be lukewarm and gross so I got a made-to-order burger. Well not... More

Went here on a friend's recommendation and so glad we did! You grab a menu, seat yourself, and order your food at the carvery, which nicely displays all the available food. Portions are very large, and food is filling. I had the shepherd's pie, and hubby had beef and Guinness stew-ahmazing! It's a plus that the place has been around... More

LOVED the food, the Guiness was fresh & delicious. We had Irish stew of course, my daughter LOVED the mashed potatoes. Do go visit the restrooms. The ladies' room was down a flight of stairs and I was expecting a dump but it was SO cute!

I've been to Dublin twice and eaten at O'Neill's 4 times now! Their carvery is excellent with delicious food. What makes their food so delicious is in the seasonings and the sauces. Not to mention they rock the root vegetables. I've never had more delicious carrots and parsnips!

This pub has warm rather than hot food ,that's if you get your food at all. My wife got her slop of stew dished out onto a plate and it was barely warm. My own dinner did not arrive. The pubs only saving grace was that we got a full refund. Nobody who served in there had English as a... More

I won't deny this is a popular place as it was packed. We were looking for a pub style lunch so popped in. There was no real direction but figured out we needed to grab a tray and get in line at the carvery. We both ordered a shepherd's pie which looked appealing and chose our 2 sides which featured...
