From the reception to departure this restaurant really is an experience. The service is excellent, the food superb and the wine...well prepared to smile. When i think of a dining experience and some of the best steak i have ever had, this venue is certainly top of my list. If i had one suggestion, they could maybe work on their... More

She had the scallops, three medium size scallops seared nicely, again looked small for 20 euro. the steaks are huge, from 8 oz up... More

Had my husbands birthday dinner here. Fabulous restaurant with a relaxed feel. Service is excellent as is the food. Starters are very tasty and quite decent in size. Their fresh bread is beautiful. We both had steak which was amazing! Warning....the portions are huge so make sure your hungry. The side dishes are also absolutely massive and each dish would... More

We were here on Saturday 7th Feb. a very warm welcome on arrival, very friendly and helpful. We dined upstairs first floor, beautiful room with a lovely fire, very cosy. Staff were very professional, extremely courteous. The food was up to its usual five star standard. Not cheap, but then neither was the quality of the food and service. Full... More

Went here this evening with my husband to celebrate a "special " birthday. From start to finish the experience was amazing. I am heavily pregnant and I couldn't believe that the gentleman in the bar offered me a cushion for my back when I came in. There was also a cushion waiting for me at the table upstairs - incredible... More

I know that dining out is such a subjective experience but I had such high expectations of Shanahans that I was somewhat underwhelmed by the experience. Don't get me wrong. it was certainly good (but then again it would need to be at the prices they charge) but I didn't feel that it was exceptional. Maybe it was me or... More

On my bucket list for a while to go to Shanahan's and I was not disappointed!! Went two weeks before Christmas on a Saturday night. Great atmosphere in there, lots of families. The steak was better than I have ever had! Cant wait to go back.

Shanahans offers a five star dining experience with five star prices.The food could not be faulted ,generous portions perfectly seasoned.However I could not recommend Shanahans to anyone on a budget.It is luxury dining.

Coming into Shanahan's on The Green on a wet and windy evening, we were given a very warm welcome and our experience continued to be super. We had our pre dinner drinks in the cosy yet spacious basement. We dined in a small dining room upstairs. The table was circular which was ideal for family conversation. The food !!! How... More

American Style Steakhouse and Seafood Restaurant featuring Certified Irish Angus beef and the freshest seafood and produce from Ireland's local bounty.

Shanahan's ethos is simple and sophisticated. Your experience begins upon arrival. Enjoy an aperitif in the Oval Office bar. Take a moment to inspect the impressive collection of memorabilia adorning the walls. Each item commemorates the U.S. Presidents with an Irish connection or ancestry. Marvel at the bar's centrepiece, JFK's rocking chair from Air Force One.

Dining in Shanahan's is a delight. The elegance of the food and service, is maintained in perfect harmony with the warmth, which personifies the Shanahan's team.
