Waxy O'Connors


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 are 3 bars and 6 different levels linked together by a warren of staircases and passages. Waxys stage regular live music and promotions, and show all the top sporting events on a big screen.

This pub is pretty awesome due to its labyrinth layout - I'm pretty sure I've yet to discover every little hideout at this place. Stairs go up, down, round, behind and who knows where else - all leading to...well seats - but seats are good! One of the rooms has a little fire place which gives it a nice homey feel.

Great pub and very cool interior! Very crowded!! This is one of the must see pub and we had lots of fun here. There is also an Indian guy who carry his camera around, he is from the pub though, trying to earn some bucks by printing picture on key chains, etc. Anyway our group photo was uploaded to the website event photo! Was a great night out.more

I gotta believe...more

Waxy O'Connor's is one of those bars I've always heard of but never made my way too. And for no good reason too, it's a pretty good spot to grab a drink with friends that feels both touristy and local at the same time.

I say touristy really only for the location (and the terrible name) that makes it feel like this place would be ripe with tourists. But if they were, I didn't feel it. Of...more
