Located in the Historic Properties neighborhood, and around the corner from Split Crow, O'Carroll's is a restaurant-pub that serves as an upscale dining establishment (to the left) and a comfortable pub (on the right). Having enjoyed both sections - the restaurant serving excellent cuisine on a seperate menu - no pub grub here; the pub offering about 2 dozen ales and lagers in addition to pouring a fine pint o' Guinness.
In fact, during a recent Haligonian jaunt, friends and I hit it on successive nights simply to enjoy the excellent live music. Wonderful pub venue in a really enjoyable city. And what's wrong with that?
