Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a small museum devoted to the local history of Claregalway, a small village which has become a suburb of Galway and a major crossroads. It has displays of tools used by local artisans and citizens--planes, cooking utensils, turf-cutters etc.--and local news clippings about the rising and the Civil War. A small village museum. There is also a blacksmith shop/forge used by a local citizen till I think the 1990s.

Very interesting. Was shown around by a great tour guide. The restored blacksmith forge is a credit to those involved. Well worth a visit!
