Family day out, stumbled upon O'Neills by chance. It was the highlight of our day. Adults and children left talking of when we could return. The food is top class, the warmth of the staff is something you don't meet too often. Nothing was a problem to them. My main reason for doing the review is due to my daughter... More

I had the Ham Hock which was really nice (the only thing that stops me giving it a 5 out of 5 was the cranberry served with it), all other piececes with it were delicious. I had fillet steak for main course and oh my god the sticky... More

It was recommended in the nearby little town of Golden at the local inn so we were suspicious a bit. But it is just gorgeous. Lovely food matching international standards, the most friendly staff we have ever experienced in Ireland though the rate of satff performance is quite high over here. Simple and excellent. 'll be happy to be back... More

There is a good choice of starters and main courses. We did not have dessert but there was a very nice selection on offer. Would highly... More
