Great atmosphere, wonderful music sessions but the highlight for us was the mussels. Coming from a long history of fishing families we certainly know good mussels and O'Connors mussels are a must have! Delicious, fresh and not to be missed.

We knew going in we would have to order at the bar. But we weren't expecting to have to stand up there for as long as we did to get served. I don't know if this is the best system. Food was average. Came quickly....More

Visited O'Conner's with 33 friends and we were kept together in the same area. To make life easy, each table was numbered and it was a case of ordering at the bar to save confusion over later bills. A good choice of food. A 10oz...More
