This has to be one of the best pubs in the area. Live music, dancing, good beer and great friends, even if you didn't know anyone when you went in... And the owner is a lovely guy too

Nice place, similar to many Irish pubs across the world. Wood paneling, stools and high tables. Irish beers and liquors on tap. Typical Irish menu. However, the food is outstanding. I had steamed clams with Irish soda bread and (several) Kilkenny ale. This was on a Friday night and it was standing room only. Very popular place.

Had a shepherd's pie. Was really delicious. Good selection of porters and stouts. Cons: very busy, did not have enough servers. Parking is really thought.

Came across it by accident and we were happy we did. Very chilled back and staff pleasant. They do have some very interesting combinations of draught beers try them out you'll be surprised.

The food was decent, if you've ever been to Ireland, that is about as good as you would rate it. Decent shepherd's pie, as everything in Hawaii, expensive, good beer selection.

I was just listening to the band and the next thing I know a girl said I was good looking and she said the lead singer was her brother. I was like that is cool I like the band and then they kicked me out of the bar. I have had several military friends going to the bar and I... More

O'Tooles is the trailer park Irish Bar that your friend Duncan loves to go to because it's "authentic" (smokey) and has traditional pub music (bartender's iPhone that stops playing when she gets a call). Well if you're trying to class it up you're better off across the street at Murphys. You don't come to O'Tooles for the generous servings of... More

A great local bar with a lovely friendly atmosphere. It's nice to see people sitting at the bar smoking and enjoying a pint and the place is well air conditioned so it certainly doesn't affect anyone. Staff were friendly and great bands every night of the week. Drinks are also very reasonably priced. Nicely decorated.

Thank BanjoD
