We loved O'Connors Pub. Had dinner across the street and wandered over to O'Connors. When we walked in there weren't many people there. Then the band started playing, and the place filled up! Great music, fun bartenders, our favorite night out in Salt Hill.

Hi! I believe before 9pm they allow children in.
Can you park nearby? We are in a campervan, fully self contained.
