O'Neills Bar

Home / Place / Oneills Bar


Suffolk Street, 2


Just a few steps away from the glamorous shopping of Dublin's Grafton Street, and the historic site of Trinity College, sits one of our most traditional pubs. O'Neill's has been serving beverages to weary travellers for over three hundred years. The O'Neill family have been at the helm for almost one hundred of those. This pub as the feel of an Ireland of old. A characterful space where everyone is welcome. The small snug to the front is the haunt of regulars who have been coming here for many a year. Here they sit with a quiet pint and the newspaper. Beyond this, a myriad of nooks and crannies, snugs and corners, where original bric-a-brac and artefacts adorn the walls. Friends gather, business colleagues discuss, tourists marvel. O'Neill's is the epitome of Dublin pub life, for all who walk through it's famous doors.  

O'Neill's is a pub also for those who love their food and want a decent drink to go with it. Many have said you won't find a better pint of Guinness in town. That may well be true! But it's not just about the black stuff here. A huge range of international beers plus shining starts from the Irish Craft Brewing contingent. Groups on a night out will love the 'best seats in the house', as O'Neill's proudly boast. At these high stools around individual tables, you can pull your own pint. Whiskies are a high point here also. The tasting tray option offers three levels of whiskey tastings depending on your taste and experience. Not to be forgotten, an international wine choice with a glass to suit every palate. 

Most of all, O'Neill's is famous for it's food. The carvery and hot food counter is only to be gaped at in awe. You can't decide because it's all so beautifully presented. Find more than a smattering of artisan producers mentioned on the menu. Be assured all meats are Irish and sourced from local suppliers. A sandwich and salad bar compliments the hot food choices for those who want something light.  Live music is a feature at O'Neill's, once again compounding the traditions you'd anticipate at a real Dublin pub.

Live music every evening upstairs, free for all. Major sporting events are captured on 13 large plasma screens and three big screens. Shout your team home with pint! Stay in touch with the gang from O'Neill's with free wireless internet throughout for all customers. A heated roof top beer garden is a great place to hang out any time of day. O'Neill's has the lot - the modern facilities of today brought to one of the favourite spots in Dublin's fair city. We think you will agree.

    Tom Durcan, craft butcher of over twenty five years experience, is a master of spiced beef. It has won him many honours. This fine Cork speciality is the underlining product at his butcher’s stall in the English market. Tom’s career began as a youngster, when he took a summer job in a butcher’s shop during school holidays. The experience proved invaluable. Working with an experienced butcher with his own slaughter house provided what Tom describes as a ‘fantastic education’ for the young novice in how to source animals, and the ground rules for good butchery.
