We spent 4 hours in this pub mainly because of the brilliant music and the character of the place. We were entertained, firstly, by a family (father and 3 young sons) and then an older band. Lot of traditional Irish music and sing-a-long songs.

We walked in right at opening time, so it wasn't very crowded. The decor is very eclectic and traditional. I found my new favorite beer, Clonmel 1650. The bar staff were super friendly and when they had the chance would have a good conversation. Unfortunately,...More

This place is a hoot. We stopped by around 10:30 pm on a week night and it was packed. They had three local guys playing Irish music, as well as some current hits on what looked like home made instruments. They were even taking suggestions....More

O'Connor's really is amazing. Went there yesterday and enjoyed the live music so much. The live music gives a feeling of connection with the other listeners. The musicians were super talented and friendly. Saw people celebrating an Irish wedding. The guinness was delicious as always....More

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.
