Irish stew in M.J. O’Neill’s pub in Dublin

Last time in Dublin I wanted to see as many local pubs and try as much local food as possible. M.J. O’Neill’s pub appeared to be a very touristic place, a really cool one though.

It’s located in the city center, near the Grafton street, it’s really huge – it has few floors, and even in the evening it wasn’t full. It’s an old building with wooden pillars and leather seats, they have a huge selection of beer and stout there, also a menu with the bar food.

They serve food there like in most pubs in Ireland – something like a self-service, you take a tray and get the food, you pay for it and then you are seated somewhere and you can order drinks if you’d like.

It was really dark inside, so it took me some time until I got a picture of the stew that I liked. It’s called a traditional stew, even though I prefer the Aran islands recipe with beef and Guinness, this one was really tasty as well. Very different though, its a lamb stew, not creamy at all but with chunks of meat covered in broth.

This was an interesting picture – it’s a screen actually, and from time to time he took out the ipod and put on the headphones )

    The stew looks pretty good, but “ice-cream scoops” of mashed potato? :D lol! I think the one on Aran Islands looks better though, although I appreciate it’s a different type of stew.

    Why does the bar have a big metal shutter down over the front?

      Ice-cream style is very common here for mashed potato ) In every pub they can serve mash like that, seems pretty normal to me by now ) What about England? I would imagine a bar food being served like that in England too.
      It was a second floor of the pub, it was closed, cause the pub wasn’t that full)
