A pretty standard Irish pub atmosphere hides a truly great selection of beers, though be warned some of the rarities on the menu may well be sold out. The staff was friendly & helpful but busy as he seemed to be the only guy working. Well informed & when I went they had 3 Flying Dog beers which was pretty cool. Prices seemed fairly average for me for Sweden(most taps 33cl around 89SEK) though the bottle list may have been cheaper than in Stockholm & if you know what you’re looking at can hide some real gems. The fries were crisp & tasty which bodes well for the rest of the food. If you’re in Uppsala check it out.
Visited for the first time on a Saturday evening in July 2012.
I liked this place. The ambiance was your typical "British" kind of pub with a long bar and the dark interior.
The selection was good but I was told that it was a bit limited compared to the peak season. July is not the peak season for a Pub in Uppsala I guess.
The location was very good, right in the center of Uppsala, not far from the Train Station. (about 5 minutes walk)
Friendly service and atmosphere. I liked the beer club with a separate bar for beer neirds and regulars with some very interesting bottles. I got the chance to finally try the Baronen 2008, really glad for that.
I will come back, its only 40 minutes with train from Stockholm to Uppsala.
Not the coziest of pubs, but nice enough. The selection of bottles is huge, altough not that interesting. Mostly standard beers from the regular importers. The tap selection is however quite impressive.
Very nice pub, centrally located in Uppsala. It’s a long bar on the first floor, with more seating in separate rooms. Sometimes there’s live music as well (meaning there may be an entrance fee). Service was swift, friendly and quite knowledgeable. Food is the usual pub grub and quite good. The Irish sounding name makes you suspect the beer selection consists of Guinness, Kilkenny, a crappy mass produced lager and nothing else. But here comes a nice surprise. The selection of draught beers is quite good, with a very interesting range of guest beers (for example Croocked Moon Hurricane IPA and Mikkeller Black Hole Tequila Barrel on my visit). Quite impressive and well mixed selection of bottled beers as well. With only 40 minutes on the train from Stockholm it’s close enough for a visit. A very welcome beer place in a town infamous for it’s lack of watering holes for non students.

The best place in Uppsala at the moment and also one of the best places in the Stockholm-Uppsala area.
Huge selection of beers and nice atmosphere. Located in the city centre. Do not miss if you are in Uppsala.
After visiting and being impressed by Monk’s bar and Akkurat, I was completely blown away by O’Connor’s! Great atmosphere, very friendly staff, good prices, and an ever-growing and already very impressing range of beers available. Furthermore they are very ambitious, I’m looking forward to visit this bar again whenever I’m in Sweden. For those who are visiting Stockholm, it’s definitely worth it to travel a bit north to Uppsala to visit O’Connor’s!
This pub has gone from being decent to being one of the best pubs in Sweden. Definitely worth it to go back there again if you haven’t been there for a while. They have a wide selection of tap beer and an even wider selection of bottled beer. All at very affordable prices. They also have some kind of beer club for regulars and people that are very interested in beer. They get access to a small pub with even more exclusive stuff. Fantastic place, I can’t wait to go back.
Probably one of the best beer bars in Sweden at the moment. A selection of over 900 bottles at the moment, with the owner looking to get it even larger, and several rotating taps with interesting beers. By Swedish standards the prices are great. Located right in the city centre and a 5 minute walk from the train station, it’s easy to go here on a daytrip from Stockholm.
During the last year, this place has gone from being quite mediocre, to one of the best beer-pubs in Sweden, with over 900 beers on bottle and a serious beer selection on tap. O’connors also boasts a loyalty bar, which serves only luxury beers. This place alone is worth a trip from Stockholm.
