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.

Service here was very poor. Had to go to the bar twice to ask for someone to take our food order and that took 30 minutes. When the food arrived it had to be sent back because they got the order wrong. Although the food was quite nice when we got it. We also paid 25 euros for 2 pina coladas which took forever for her to make and all we could taste was milk. Think she forgot to put the alcohol in. On the whole not a good experience

Last weekend we where 4 from Norway in Dublin, all places - and we went to many - people were nice - food and drinks where good almost everywhere. We had just one bad experience - Buskers bar. We was looking for irish stewed - which they didn't have on the menu - but one waiter told us that that would be fixed. When we ordered drinks and food - they came with the food first (never experienced befor) - and then they served two of the meal first and it took 20 minutes before the next meal came. Then we had got our drinks as well. And the guy that ordered irish stewed got just the same as the woman that ordered angus beef both with mashed potatoes. They tried to explain why those to courses was identictally - but had of course no good answer. And my own course I don't even want to begin on - will take to long. Only one of 4 got what they ordered - and in US and Norway - the wrongdoing would be fixed or a discount offered. We paid the bill and went.

This was a regular bar we visited on our Dublin trip. We loved the live music and the singers were all super talented. Staff we were friendly - drinks a little over priced but good atmosphere and we’d return if we came back to Dublin again.

Very arrogant staff, ignore patrons when you want to order. Just couldn't get our drinks after 20min's of waiting at the bar.

great pub. Live music on the first floor & downstairs a great bar for live sport. No matter where you sit you can see a tv showing the football & half time entertainment a game of table tennis to pass the time, lol

Fast service and good food. I was given my promised 10% discount on my first meal there (because of being a Temple bar Hotel guest). Sadly I was not given my 10 % discount on my second meal on another occasion. I tried to explain to the waiter that 0.75pence is not 10% of the price of the salmon main meal and brownie dessert. It appeared that the waiter thought I was a bit thick and he was just trying to cover his mistake. I did not want to make a scene ,so I just paid and left. A bit disappointed about that.

Went to one bar to be told he can’t take my 20 note as he had no change so had to pay by card, all tables in the sports bar had reserved signs and all ping pong and pool tables were also reserved even though no one was using them, went upstairs to the main bar, sat down for 20 mins and then a waitress came and placed a reserve sign on my table without saying a word, terrible service

Popped in here by chance and was more than pleasently surprised !!! The staf were great, friendly, helpful and serve a great pint of Guinness !!The different musicians that played when I was in were all equally as good as you'd see anywhere - great song choices to involve the whole corwd of varying ages.
Went downstairs to watch the Formula one and the staff down there were equally as brilliant and couldn't do enough to help.
