O’Neill’s in Dublin

Family, International, Ireland

It’s a family tradition. When we go to Dublin we make a visit to O’Neill’s across from Trinity College. The first time was when Mother and Dad, Ken and Alice visited the Irish capital as part of a British Isles cruise. Mother and Dad knew of this venerable Dublin institution from the novels of Andrew Greeley. Then in 2016 Dad and Alice celebrated his 90th Birthday with a road trip around Ireland including a trip to O’Neill’s. Did we have a choice? We did not! Today we darkened the door without knowledge that the crowd had already gathered and was tuned into the All-Ireland Semi-Final Dublin v Galway game. Since it’s a “seat yourself” situation, we got to do a grand tour of the various rooms and levels before finding an empty table! We feasted on traditional foods such as Lamb Stew, Beet Guinness Pie, and Corned Beef accompanied by various Irish Ales, Stout, and Hard Cider. After dinner we wandered the streets of this busy city until it was time to navigate ourselves back to the car park and make our way to the Maldron Hotel at the Dublin Airport, our home for the night and yet another cultural experience! What an incredible week this had been!

Mother’s jacket has just made its third trip to O’Neill’s!
