This pub I visit every time I am in Kiev. It is located in city center and close to Maidan. I have been there more than 20 times since 2008. They show English Premier League football there and they serve good pub food and good selection of beers. Also started now to have IPA beers. A good atmosphere and live... More

The place where most of the foreigners like to visit. Good live music, good food, good beer. If you want to have good break, you should go to O'Brien's

I got caught in a downpour & so sought refuge in a pub. The atmosphere was warm & welcoming, the Guinness was great , the goulash very tasty & the staff friendly . Well worth a visit again

O’Brien’s has been my watering hole of choice for many years. The staff is friendly and always tries to accommodate. There are some quirks that I will discuss later on, but I have found ways to deal with it or otherwise just accepted it. I shy away from the local brew sticking to my regular pint of Guinness. Sitting at... More

Very pleasant place with efficient staff and the pub grub was far superior than you would usually expect and exceptionally reasonable for food and drink

If you're a picky eater and you just can't eat all of the local cuisine, then O'briens is the place for you. You can never go wrong with fish and chips or a good ol' burger. The staff is great, the atmosphere is great, the live band on Friday's and Saturday's are great. Very clean location and very respectful workers.... More

Not sure how authentic this can be but as an Irish pub for socialising as good as anywhere in the world. Substantial bar menu and seating over at least two floors - I will go there again.

spent a few days in Kiev recently and we were fortunate enough to have Obriens right opposite the apartment we were staying in. we were in there every day in one way or another - food is typically Pub'ish but better than most of the stuff you get from Pubs in the UK. a massive drinks menu with far more...

Stopped in for a couple of Guinness and very glad we did. Great decor and atmosphere, friendly and welcoming staff, and of course great Guinness ! Highly recommended, although cannot comment on the food as we did not dine, but going by the place I would think it would be good..

Fantastic little bar. My partner and I stopped here by pure chance and I'm glad we did. Pemier league football was being shown on the big screen when we came in, other Brits and lovely friendly staff. We were dealt with Toma who was very nice. I recommend this to any Brits passing through or any one for that matter!... More
