Who we are

Welcome to The O’Neill Pub! We’re glad you’re here. Our website address is


We love hearing from our visitors! When you leave a comment on our site, we collect the information you provide in the comments form. Additionally, we gather your IP address and browser user agent string to help us detect and prevent spam.

If you have a Gravatar account, an anonymized string created from your email address may be sent to the Gravatar service to check if you have a profile picture. Your profile picture, if approved, will be visible to the public alongside your comment.


If you choose to upload images to our website, please ensure they don’t contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to our site can download and extract any location data from images posted here.


To enhance your experience on our site, we offer the option to save your name, email address, and website in cookies when you leave a comment. These cookies are designed for your convenience, so you don’t have to re-enter your details each time you comment. They will last for one year.

When you visit our login page, we’ll set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and will be discarded when you close your browser.

Upon logging in, several cookies will be set up to save your login information and screen display preferences. Login cookies are valid for two days, while screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. Logging out of your account will remove the login cookies.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie contains no personal data and expires after 1 day; it simply indicates the post ID of the article you’ve edited.

Embedded content from other websites

Our articles may contain embedded content (such as videos, images, articles, etc.) from other websites. Embedded content behaves similarly to if you visited the other website directly.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content. This includes tracking your interaction if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who do we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email for security purposes.

How long we retain your data

When you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This helps us recognize and approve follow-up comments automatically, instead of holding them for moderation.

For users who register on our website (if any), we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except for their username). Website administrators also have access to this information for management purposes.

What rights do you have over your data?

If you have an account on our site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you’ve provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. However, this does not include data we are required to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service to maintain the integrity of our website and protect against spam.
