We went to O'Donoghue's especially for the music, from the outside it looks really small but is deceptively much bigger inside. The live music started at 9ish and is at the front of one of the bars, we were there early so managed to get...More

O'donoghue's was our last bar-hopping stop for the night, and it was a good one. The music lured us in, as we heard the strains of a rocking rendition of AC/DC's "She Shook Me All Night Long". After ordering a round of drinks at the...More

Meh. For food, this place was below average. They apparently got a new menu. I was't expecting the ritz, but was hoping for something better. Perhaps this place got all the reviews for the evening entertainment. Missed that....

Highly recommended. My favorite pub in Dublin with some of the best trad music sessions that I have experienced. Make sure that you catch a session!
