We came here with heavy hearts but empty stomachs after the England vs Croatia game on Weds evening. It was food heaven. These people really know how to cook a steak! It's really classy - or I should say classical, with white linen table cloths...More

Just ate there. As with almost everything in Ireland, the people are warm and friendly. Alas, while the menu is good the food is not anything more than mediocre. Expensive. 50 Euros for a tough fairly tasteless steak. Sides are extra. Creamed corn was fine....More

There is no dress code but I did wear a blazer and khakis. Didn't want to look like a bum. I strongly recommend the Saddle Room instead, better food and way less expensive.

American Style Steakhouse and Seafood Restaurant featuring Certified Irish Angus beef and the freshest seafood and produce from Ireland's local bounty. Shanahan's ethos is simple and sophisticated. Your experience begins upon arrival. Enjoy an aperitif in the Oval Office bar. Take a moment to inspect the impressive collection of memorabilia adorning the walls. Each item commemorates the U.S. Presidents with an Irish connection or ancestry. Marvel at the bar's centrepiece, JFK's rocking chair from Air Force One. Dining in Shanahan's is a delight. The elegance of the food and service, is maintained in perfect harmony with the warmth, which personifies the Shanahan's team.
