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.

Went out with guest from the US tonight. We wanted to show them a place with trad music so logic choice. All ok. Good sized group 10+. No issues, Bought a few rounds. So I go up to get the last round. I order a few drinks and a coke. I was standing next to my colleague as I needed help carry back the drinks. So the drinks come and it looks like the Coke is a Corrs Light. I say sorry I ordered a Coke and not a Corrs. She goes off on me that she asked me 3 times. Ok so let's give her the benefit of the benefit of the doubt as she ain't the one who is drinking here. I ask can I have a coke as that's what I need. I ask my colleague who is from the US and he is just as confused as me as he says I never saw her ask multiple times. OK again lets forget about that go as clearly he can't be trusted also as he is after a beer or two. So I ask for a Coke as I had already paid. She goes 3.80 for it so I tap again. So I leave the Corrs at the bar because I don't have enough hands but I go back as I paid for it and it has disappeared. She had taken it under the bar. Sorry now but you are taking the piss. I give the beer to someone as it's paid for. When a large group goes in somewhere and something is heard in error I have never seen a situation where someone is force to pay for something. She is poor, probably annoyed with he job but wow getting someone to pay for a misheard drink and then take it back when the customer had paid for it. It's a new one on me and I have never seen such a thing. It's a bar, mistakes happen, wastage happens. If someone things that they are going to go through a day without a single miscommunication is a noisy bar then there is something wrong. Will never be going back.

My name is Oscar, I am the maitre of the Restaurant Nosta where I always recommend to new customers in the city this pub which I have enjoyed many times, but today I have been expelled from the pub for wearing trekking pants that are black and where I have entered everywhere. It's been a really bad experience. A Tuesday at 19h

Went here on a Sunday and a group was playing irish music. Good selection of beer and volume is so that is possible to speak.

This was such a cool pub. The music was great, the crowd was fun. Our experience here really made it feel like life was back to normal. The musicians were on point and a pleasure to listen to. The beer was perfect and the whole building you could spend days there and never see something new on the walls each time. Overall it was great, and the perfect Irish experience.

Absolutely incredible traditional Irish pub occupied by lovely locals. Traditional Irish live music. Quirky decor. A real taste of Ireland!

We where there to eat, drink and enjoy the local dance tradition. A good place to be with typical food for such a pub. Nice located in the old city of Cork.

We stopped here on our first night in Cork as it was on our must visit list. Crowded at the door entrance and right by the steps where the musicians sit, but you have a large seating area upstairs where we comfortably soaked up the atmosphere and enjoyed our drinks. Lovely place.

I've been traveling for 6 weeks, and this small, unassuming pub was one of the most fun I've been to anywhere. It's simple and small. The live music was excellent. Staff was friendly. The place was packed on a Monday night. I may go back before I leave town!
