Great little pub
Mar 2016 • Friends
Great little country pub. Had good simple food but the beer was cold and plenty available. Quaint little pub in seaside village with plenty of atmosphere and friendly local clientele

Good time was Cork vs. Kerry
Jul 2015 • Couples
I stopped in for a pint and to watch the Cork vs. Kerry Football match and I got a good sense of the passion the have for their football.

I was hoping to experience the Irish sporting culture and I wasn't disappointed. Pint of Murphy's was the best I've had.

I spent many hours at this pub to watch the final 2 matches of the Rugby resulting in England placed 2nd behind Ireland. Very jovial while tense atmosphere due to the situation with the delicate point situation in the Rugby !! Loud, Raucous support for both England and Ireland. We were a bunch of English that were fully welcomed by the locals both during the match and on following visits. If in the area again would definitely call in.

Embarrassed to be Irish
Mar 2015 • Couples
I visited the bar with my wife for our 23rd year anniversary.

We met 3 Scots and an English man who were asked to leave because they were singing.

Doorman was embarrassed about the whole thing and said that it was the owner and he didn't see the problem.

Would not go back. Guy behind the bar I found was very arrogant. Maybe he doesn't like tourists. He claimed the scottsman was hitting the bar which was a lie. He was mearly tapping it to the song

Never again

Cool bar with outdoor seating

We had to try Oscar Madison's for the name alone. The bartender said that the owner was a big fan of the Odd Couple and had met the actor and liked him so much that he changed the name of the bar. I never thought to ask him which actor he met, Walter Matthau or Jack Klugman. Anyway, we just stopped in for a Guinness but they also have tables out back if you want to be outside or have a smoke. It's in the middle of Kinsale so you can't miss it.

Our favorite pub!
Nov 2013 • Friends
My husband and I went to Oscar Madison's the first time during the day. We were wondering around Kinsale and decided to stop in for a pint. We met Paul (owner) and chatted with him for a bit. There were not many in the bar (it was cold, raining and November). We sat at the bar. Chatted with Paul about Kinsale and he gave us suggestions as to where to eat and what to see.

We went back the next night with our friends and hung out with Paul and few locals. There is a large tv to watch sports.

We had so much fun we went back a third night to hang out with Paul's brother Matt. We barely got in the door before Matt was closing up. Matt was great! Ended up hanging out a couple hours.

Our last night in Kinsale we ended the night at Oscar Madison's - it was a Friday night and the streets were FULL of people. Had a great time with Paul and some locals.

My husband is going back to Kinsale in April and he will go back to Oscar Madison's!

ps - I read the review re paying for a bottle of soda. I totally get it. I like vodka drinks but didn't care to pay for a mini bottle of club soda. Very silly but most pubs/restaurants do this. :( Hope you will give Oscar Madison's another chance.

expansive if you are not " drinking"
Aug 2013 • Family
Viisted recently with my family during a recent trip to Kinsale . Given that it was an afternoon the pub was quite busy with many in the garden(yard) listening to the music on the nearby music stage .

The pub does not have soft drinks on draught and as such they are more expensive than the draught beer. ( I begrudge paying 4 Euro plus for a lime and soda) I think that the bar staff were embarrassed about having to charge me that price .
