Description: O'Reilly's Irish Pub has been satisfying both visitors and locals alike from the same location on Caihong Road since it opened its doors in 2006. The old "Irish pub" look has become a true landmark, and inside the pub, the turn-of-the-century Irish Saloon theme adds a welcoming charm not commonly found outside Ireland. An authentic Irish bar, drawing on the long tradition and loyal client base in Ningbo On busy nights, the atmosphere is very alive with locals and expat regulars including a strong following from the Sheraton across the street. True to its roots and still a little rough around the edges, O'Reilly's is the real deal... it's as good as it gets outside of Ireland.

“It's good to be back”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

Very nice irish pub a few meters away from the Portman/Sheraton.

Nice for a change from the usual chinese-style food you get to eat everywhere else.

Typical irish pub menu, medium quality, but you will probably love it anyway after a few days of chinese only.

“Pub in China that understands BEER needs to be COLD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

Easy place to go. Food is "bar food" but Pizza is the best I've had in China so far. Thin crust only. Only recent place better overall was Pizza Bob's in Aruba My nightly hangout in Ningbo, you can count on Ice-cold European beers, on draft.

“Very decent small pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

Small pub with good selection of beers and cocktails. Don't expect much but if you just want a quick hangout it's a good place.

“Beware of Tom!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

I am new to Ningbo and being an Irishman decided to use the Dublin Bar which is owned by the Proprieters of O'Reilly's I think that they also have a connection to The Druids chair in Killiney/Ballybrack. I am a Dalkey man myself. I went a few times, ate some nice food and enjoyed some very polite conversations with the two bar maids Mary and Veronica. As I am alone here I looked forward to this. On my last visit to The Dublin Bar I bought Veronica a Baileys. Well, this Tom guy read me the riot act and became very personable with me and extremely rude! I am very dissapointed as it was a nice place to go! Maybe someone should tell him that Irish people do buy drinks out of friendship and not what he was insinuating!
