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.

After trying to find a pub that we could come in out of the rain, we had the luck of finding Preacher, a friendly welcome and great service the bar man was working alone and was quite busy.

Used to be a great pub wit great staff always friendly sadly that's all gone now . The loss of its regular barman means its lost its charm . Sad to see what once was a fun pub now is just a front to what can only be described as a bar without a soul

I used to go to Preachers pretty regularly. Always would meet someone I know. And the bartenders were good for a chat.

These days the staff are still nice but the place isn't the same. And because of that a lot of regulars don't come around so often.

Two weeks ago I went in there waiting for friends. All the screens were playing some English rugby league game. Only three guys in there watching it. I asked if one of the screens could be switched to the Liverpool game that was on. The English guys protested and insisted that all the screens play the rugby. And the staff switched it back to the rugby. They wouldn't even put it on the small screen behind the bar. I finished my drink and left pretty quickly.

I'll still pop in there occasionally but not as often as used to.

Stopped off here as I was in the city and peckish, went with the pizza , chips and a side off BBQ sauce. Brendan and Butch behind the bar were top notch and great craic. I’ll be sure to be in again for the best BBQ sauce in town, not a half bad pint either.

We where drawn in by preachers funky decor and watched the Munster game inside there. The Barman (Butch) was excellent went above and beyond any Barman could have done for us to start off a 30th birthday weekend. Pizza was excellent and I cant reiterate the point best Murphys in Cork hands down. Only downside of our experience inside in Preachers Bar which didnt effect my review of the Bar was a local Ginger Cork man constantly debating Guinness is better than Murphys. He was wrong on this occasion.

Brought the kids out for the Munster match and really enjoyed the atmosphere despite the wild and disruptive ginger haired middle aged local man at the bar making a show of himself
