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.
