It was recommended to us as a place to get something to eat and maybe it was because it was St. Patty's day weekend, but I just didn't see how the two waitresses serving the food were suppose to serve the tables and wait the bar. I only had the fish and chips and they were good. But getting a...

Went there for breakfast two days during our weekend in Dublin and absolutely loved their food. Great value and great sausages! And great service too! If you're staying in the area you should definitely go there for breakfast.

Visited Dublin last week and stayed in apartments around the corner from O Sheas, luckily we found this little gem on the first day and they couldn't do enough for us. We were a party of 20 and as soon as we walked in we had a warm irish welcome, ending up staying here for much longer than expected as...

Lovely pub, good atmosphere. The staff are friendly, hard working and always happy to help. My visit was with a large party at one point they had run out of Tia Maria. They went out and bought some to keep us all happy! No one asked for this, customer service at its best!! Well worth a visit. They also do...

I originally planned to go to the Brazen Head for dinner but it was just jammed with people, so I wandered over to O'Sheas and got a table right away. I had the prix fix and it was just great, good Irish fare and a good price too. They had a duo singing Irish songs, one on guitar and a...

We each chatted about our lives, had traditional Irish pub drinks, me a Jamison and ginger with lime, my husband a...

We went to this restaurant/pub for dinner on the night that Ireland played in the Eurocup! Surprisingly this place was not too crowded (although we did take the last table). We had great service, yummy beer and cider on tap and good food (salad, vegetable soup, chicken curry and prime rib) the chicken curry was very yummy and came with...

Excellent pub - traditionally Irish, great location, live music, and friendly people. It didn't seem to be overrun with tourists, although we weren't there on the weekend. We only visited the pub, so we can't comment on the hotel side of the business. This proved to be our go-to pub during our time in Dublin.

Brilliant service, the staff were on the ball, great food, delicious steak sarnie, cheap beer, what more could you ask for?!! Lovely traditional Irish music playing in the background (the girl on the fiddle was amazing, and the guy, such a good singer) A great place, highly recommended.
