Stopped in here on a Friday night for a late meal when everything else was full. It was a perfect stop for what we wanted. Ordered the sampler to share and the bartender was very honest in telling us to get the smaller tray as it was a lot of food. This was really appreciated.
Sadly, this is one of the slowly disappearing “real” Dublin Irish pubs. A no nonsense drinking venue geared up solely for the “craic”, music and enjoyment of company. We went for a couple of pints on recommendation and we weren't disappointed. The staff are very efficient and quick to serve and the whole place exudes authenticity and a welcoming ambiance. A great place to spend a few hours.
Super service, great atmosphere. Great night had by all even during covid times. We will be back again soon. Great beer garden to watch sports and very quick service by all of the bar staff, no complaints here. One of Dublins best kept secrets.
Get out of touristy Temple Bar and listen to authentic Irish music in an informal atmosphere (no stages) just off of St Stephens Green a block from The Shelbourne. O’Donoghues cooks up an intimate nightly round of Irish music where the audience sits among the musicians to enjoy fabulous tunes. Music usually starts around 9PM and the room starts filling up around 8.30PM so grab a beer and a seat when you can. The tunes were delightful and something not to be missed.
How the mighty have fallen,once a great pub,now a money grabbing conveyor belt of bad product and rudeness,loud and obnoxious staff member shouts orders down the bar like a chip van outside Croke Park on All Ireland Sunday,pints filled in one pour like a night club in Ibiza not in the home of Guinness,stout warm and of bad quality,toilets are filthy with urine and faeces flowing across the floor(Coronavirus is the least of your worries in this kip).When we complained we were treated to a barrages of laughter and insults led by the earlier mentioned loud hailer(a spectacle wearing balding horrible little man),such a pity this once fantastic and iconic Dublin pub has lost its heart and soul to make a fast buck
If you like staying in the heart of the action, then this is it as it is next to Stephens Green and Government buildings where all the best historic attractions are located. Plus the bar is one of the best in Ireland, they have regular live music and always a good atmosphere.
O’Donoghue’s is a small affordable 2 star hotel next to Stephen’s Green within walking distance of Grafton Street. It is ideal for a short city break if you are into shopping and sight seeing. The rooms and beds are confortable. Trinity College, Dail, Merrion Square are a short distance away. Give it a try, you will be surprised.
We stayed here for 3 nights and this is a great pub in a really good location. The rooms are a little tired but are clean and staff are very friendly and helpful. The pub is very busy but that adds to the atmosphere and the Irish stew is to die for. Recommend
The accommodation was just as described on the website. The higher up you are the quieter the rooms but the more stairs you have to climb! Our two rooms were large with extra beds in. The beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms were made up every day of our four day stay, Rooms are clean and have everything you need with lots of tea and coffee. You stay here for the authentic pub and bar downstairs and live Irish music and not pampered luxury. We slept like logs every night. No breakfast but many choices just yards away, which we felt was appealingly different. Generous, late check out time. We will book again.
It's a pub, a brilliant one. Keep that in mind when staying there. Don't think your going to have a quite night in. Most nights they have live music and pub-goers there LATE. If staying here, request an upper level floor to make it a little more tolerable. If you're looking for the Dublin pub experience that you can stay at, look no further for an in-town and that irish pub vibe.
