“Decent hotel, friendly staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

O'sheas is an older hotel, lots of character but not ideal iif you are a light sleeper. Our room was literally on top of the pub, which for my husband was no problem..I am a light sleeper so wasn't ideal for me. Property is older, but clean and full of character.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 3rd floor to get away from the noise.

Stayed here one night in May. It was a Friday night and I would suggest its probably not the best choice for a restful nights sleep. A lot of noise from the bar downstairs to the early hours (and I was briefly woken by a female fellow guest screeching like a banshee in the night). But then you could always join the party as this is what O'Shea's is famous for.
I found the staff efficient and friendly and the standard of the room in line with the budget price.

Excellent location with easy access to all the sites and the airport 747 service stops just outside.

Room Tip: Get a room as high as possible if you want a quieter nights sleep.

We were out for the day and decided to pop in to O'sheas for some food. I had ate there years when I used to work nearby and it was always fine so took a chance, brought my husband and children in. Food menu looked promising and reasonable enough. Staff were v friendly and took our order, In a nutshell food was dreadful. My husbands beef and guiness pie arrived with cold mash and frozen veg that were as bland as anything. The pie had hardly any beef it in it and was full of mushroom, my husband hates mushrooms and had it said on the menu that it was beef and mushroom pie he wouldnt have ordered it. My lasagna was overheated and rubbery. The waitress asked us what the food was like and husband told her about the pie. IN fairness to her, she was extremely apologetic and said she would mention it to the chef, we were interested to see would he come out and defend his food but not a hope. She came out and told us we could have pie for half price, at this stage we paid and left, but would never set foot in the place again. I would say a lot of people that eat there are passing trade so owner probably doesnt care that the food isnt good because its not for locals and he knows he will still get drop ins. Only good thingabout the place was the friendly staff.

We stayed at this hotel from 29 March to 1 April 2013. O’Shea’s does not have many of the features that are expected of a three star hotel. The reception is a small cubicle when you enter. It’s actually an entrance to the pub. There is a lift, so to speak. It can carry 2 adults at a time. You will struggle with your suit cases, as we did. We stayed on the third floor; so on many occasions, it was a climb up three flights. There are no telephones in the room. Internet or WiFi is not provided any where in the hotel. At night the area is quite noisy with pub revelers and the shouting and yelling carried on till 2 to 3 in the morning. The only advantage is that it is close to the shopping malls. It is quite far from the cool parts of Dublin such as the Temple Bar precinct.

Room Tip: I cant help you with this.

We picked this hotel because it's location, price, and it's pub. The location was very good (just a stone's throw from the O'Connell Street), the price was relatively cheap, and the pub was nice, with a great irish breakfast in the moring (it costs 5 euros if you book just the accommodation), cool beers and tasty snacks in the afternoon (irish stew was wonderful!). Some nights there was live irish music there.

Our room was not so clean (dusty shelves, smelly bathroom), but the bathroom was very big, and it was ok for a short stay. So if you are on a tight budget, it's not a bad idea to book a room here. I don't think it's as horrible as the others said, just don't have to expect any luxury. This is a cheap accommodation above an irish pub, nothing more.
