I 've been here twice on this visit, to enjoy a pub quiz, and witnessed twice the bartender helping a certain group to win. It's supposed to be fair, this takes the fun out of it. Irish sportmanship? It's supposed to be fun for everyone. Good questions though, one top quizmaster under this bridge at least.

O'Connell's Irish Bar is a very typical Irish pub. They have the most common Irish and English beers and whiskeys as well as some pub grub. It's also the most international bar in town.

We visit this bar quite often when we are in Tampere. The staff is really nice, both beer and wine is good and they also have very good food including the salads!

I have been here for the late night beer with my business friends. Really enjoyed the atmosphere here. Very good beers - draft or bottled - an oh yes, the price, it's Finland ;-) Recommend this place, good meeting point if you like the beer.

O'Connells is the place to be for trivia night. The atmosphere is cozy and the staff friendly. The onion rings were very tasty. A wide selection of drinks are available on tap.

I think only minus for the bar is that drinks are quite expensive. I didn't eat any food in this place but menu looked good and dishes were not bad price. There is good selection of beers and ciders. Decoration is also very pleasent. You can play board games and trivias while you drink beer. It is a perfect place... More

O'Connell's is a long time favourite pub of ours ever since they opened back in the 1990's when we still lived in Tampere. It's a comfy pub with board games and sports on telly, apparently they have occasional live music too. Otherwise it's not too loud and the atmosphere is friendly. They seem to have introduced a menu of pastas... More
