      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I stumbled on O'Neills pub not in a druken stupor but quite by chance as my company put me up there when I was posted in Durham. Asyou can imagine 12 weeks above the pub might have lead me to imbibe the odd pint or two on the premises. Just before I left O'Neills had a complete refit, the toilets being the most exceptional example of why this was of benefit to us all. They are pretty good now, but were truly dire before. O'Neills is just outside the city center, about 2 minutes walk, and opposite the newly opened millenium building, theter place. Michelle and her sister run the place and are truly lovely and hospitible lasses. The pub is fair sized, but has no windows, is rather an Irish grotto. The bar is at the far end when you come in. It has the usual range of alcopops and lagers, plus, naturally, Guinness and other Irish fare. Food is served form midday until three, which often disappointed me in the evenings, but a nice bowl of Colcanon with mushroom and cheese was always cheap and filling. Various other things on the menu to suit all budgets too. On a night it is the perfect place for a quiet pint, or a go on the Who wants to be a millionaire quiz machine (sorry I am an addict). On thursdays they tend to have bands, all of whom I enjoyed either inperson or through the ceiling in my room. On a weekend it gets really busy (so no quiet pints) but has music and a very jolly atmosphere, midway between English and Irish pubs. All in all a very enjoyable place to go for a drink, and worth the two minute walk.
