O’Shea’s Traditional Irish Bar & Restaurant – Dinner

Address: 19 Talbot Street, Dublin 1

O’ Shea’s Bar & Restaurant  is located in the heart of Dublin City and is an established food partner of Celtic Group Hostels for over 20 years – hundreds of our groups have dined in this establishment and it is extremely popular.

Set in a Georgian building, O’ Shea’s boasts a warm atmosphere, a friendly and knowledgeable staff and delicious Irish and international dishes. This place can accommodate up to 200 people.

O’ Shea’s also hosts traditional Irish music and dance. There’s no better way for groups to experience some real Irish culture than to listen to live Irish music being played and learning the Jigs and reels of Irish step dancing. O’Shea’s hosts this experience exclusively for CGH groups – have a look here what an evening can be like for your group: An evening at O’Shea’s – Irish Music and Dance Experience.
