Ireland is a vulgar country with a brash and ignorant professional class; Shanahan's is where they eat. That isn't a comment on the restaurant, but rather it's clientele. The restaurant itself is superb. We had no issue with the staff, service or the quality of...More

Waiting staff could be better trained. Was there with a group on xmas eve and there was a male waiter who was probably the rudest man I have ever met. He physically pushed a family member's arm to reset her place. For the money that...More

We had an outstanding meal at Shanahan's over the Christmas holiday. The food, the service, and the ambience were all excellent. It was our best meal in Dublin.

Shanahan’s is always a very good din8ng experience. Prawns followed by steak cannot be beaten anywhere else in the city. The quality is second to none, the price is at the upper end but still represents value considering the quality.

We returned to Shanahan’a after many years with 6 friends . The reception staff and bar staff were very efficient . The service charge of 15 % is not justified based on mediocre service . Delays were encountered all evening to get waiters attention. At...More

A large group of us ate here for our Christmas party (work). The food was delicious, of particular note was the seafood chowder which was simply wonderful. I chose the sirloin which was to be honest, ginormous. It didn't need to be so big really..but...More

Regretfully I write to express my anger at the disgraceful service which I experienced this year at Shanahans on the Green. As I book Shanahans every Christmas for my mothers birthday I did this year. Three months in advance!!!! I rang to confirm my booking...More

One can't go wrong on Shanahan's. Fantastic food maybe the best steak house in Dublin, comes along with excellent service and decent list of wine and spirits. Great sitting in a Victorian house decor makes the whole experience even better. Highly recommended.

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.
