Waxy O'Connor's


In the heart of the West End, Waxy O'Connors is like no other bar and restaurant you've ever visited.

The extraordinary interior has some amazing features, including cathedral-like timber carvings, stained glass windows, beautifully tiled floors, and the trunk and branches of a giant preserved beech tree.

Within this quirky venue are three bars and six different levels linked together by a warren of staircases and passages.

The Irish pub stage regular live music and promotions, and show all the top sporting events on a big screen.

Went in there as in the area, still looks good with all the levels, but no customers. I ordered a pint of Guinness £5.40 for it. No wonder it is empty. Never going back again.more

This place is quite the experience. It is gigantic, with tons of different winding underground...more
