Cuisine: American-style steakhouse
Style / Ambiance: A pleasure for the discerning carnivore, Shanahan’s serves some of the best beef in Ireland.
The steaks are all certified Irish Angus and cooked in a special broiler at 1,600-1,800 degrees fahrenheit to sear the outside while keeping the inside tender and juicy. The menu also offers fresh native seafood, excellent pork and lamb dishes and a truly indulgent Oreo cookie cheesecake. Patrons enjoy all this in a majestic Georgian townhouse on St. Stephens Green, designed by Dublin’s leading 18th century architect, Richard Cassels. Complete with marble fireplaces and gilded chandeliers, the classically-proportioned dining rooms drip with history, and the attached Oval Office bar provides a splendid setting for a post-supper liqueur.
