Nice old traditional boozer. Lots of wood panelling and lots of taps. Range isnít too interesting although picked up a few new ones.
Service quick, nice atmosphere. Food looked good. Not too pricey.
Not bad overall. Better places in Dublin though

Every city in the world that has an Irish pub has a place called OíNeills, so it seems right to visit one in Dublin. Beer selection is grand. The bar is huge but it doesnít feel like it with all of the nice nooks and crannies. The carvery looks unbelievable.

This pub, a short walk away from the northern beginning to the Grafton Street shops (and close to Trinity College) is a veritable maze of rooms and areas on different platform levels on different floors. Thereís several bars all offering different drinks each time and depending on what entrance you go through you may not realise how big this pub is until you decide to explore. Itís popular given its location and includes a slightly out of place self-service type restaurant section which tends to suggest this is the fast way they can service the people through the door who want to eat. Thereís plenty of craft keg and bottle ales here alongside some familiar mass produced brands of lager and other styles. Thereís also a rooftop terrace which acts a smoking area too, so if your a non-smoker this may not be the most appealing of areas to be in.

Lot of levels and rooms in this place. be great if the barstaff is knowable what they are doing. Lot of micros and macros, that not the problem but the staff, and there is a great place to come have a drink.

Had a hot cold mix about this place.A very large old place, with a great selection of tap beers. You have to walk around all the bars to find them. Staff at the tables was rude and ignored me except for a remark about why they were there. Had to go to the bar to get served. Even when the place was near empty with a ton of staff about. The bartender was very nice and although clueless about beer was nice to chat with. There are better places to be had in Dublin

Huge sprawling pub right in the city centre.
Two bars on two levels serving a mix of craft and macro.
Plenty of choice in terms of Irish craft ales, a couple of BrewDog offerings, and one or two common Belgians (Leffe etc).
Prices are fairly standard for Dublin - a touch more expensive than elsewhere given the good location.
Theyíve certainly gone for quantity over quality, with the majority of staff Iíve encountered knowing nothing about the beers and not giving a shit about presentation. Itís a little thing, but when I drop nearly 7quid on a pint of BrewDog Punk IPA I donít want it in a bloody Coors Light glass. Few times Iíve given pints back to them as the taste of line cleaner was just bleeding obvious.
They had a cask handpump for a while, but they quickly took it out due to them not pushing it/training their staff/not giving a shit - thank Christ, I had to teach a poor lad behind the bar how to pull a pint and then received a glass of vinegar for my troubles. Useless.
Carvery food is on offer, big and basic seems to be the theme but Iíve never eaten there.
Plenty of TVs for sports watching and a big roof terrace/smoking area.
Gets very busy and jammed with tourists in the evenings. Fairly cosy during the day, with plenty of comfy nooks and crannies to kick back and chill out with a pint.
Not a bad place for an afternoon pint or to watch a match on the telly, but there are better places to drink in the city.

Drove by at least 3 times in one afternoon, so it was necessary to visit it. Initially I expected to get cca. 5 beers on tap, but my nose carried me to excellent choice of cca. 30 beers. Interior is traditionally furnished with great atmosphere and trad music sessions. Enjoyed few beers with our US colleagues. Opening hours could be longer...

Large pub near Trinity College. Lots of beer on tap, some interesting. Nice place to sit down and relax with a pint. Relaxed atmosphere when we visited in the middle of the day on a Tuesday. Well worth a visit if youíre in the neighbourhood.

Really crappy place. Most of the draughts were empty. Even the beers they promoted on billboards werenít available. Mediocre service. Wonít go back there.
