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 the interesting entrance we were shown up to the vip area we had booked. Atmosphere was buzzing and great music playing. We got our drinks order and spent most of the night dancing and soaking up great atmosphere. Staff and people in the club so friendly

Staff were brilliant and very accomodatiing to our needs....we even went back the next day without pre booking(st paddys weekend) and they had an area reserved for us again.

Evelyn/Odile/DJ Tommy/ all the bouncers/ David and Francois you made the 20 strong stag group feel welcomed and put up with our shenanigans the whole night!!

Defo recommend this place.

We booked a package/ Table and it was excellent value under 40 Euro each for entrance to the club, table in a private area and 2 bottles of vodka and a magnum of champagne. Wasn’t super lively until later on but it was nice to be somewhere that wasn’t packed and the staff and clientele were all very friendly.

We visited Lillies for a Christmas Party.
The place has a very run down vibe to it, not the high class vibe I thought it would be.
It took us over a half an hour to be served as the bar men stuck to one end of the bar and were ignoring the other end.

Do not come near this place if you have a problem with stairs.
To get into Lillies you need to go up a flight of stairs, to go to the toilet it's two flights of stairs. The toilets are also tiny, so much so even a model would have a hard time getting in there!

I will not be visiting again.

We were directed to Lillie's by the bouncer at the end of the ally when asking for Porterhouse. We paid £10 entry and immediately realised we were in the wrong place.
The emptiness and nasty atmosphere in Lillie's was the first clue. After 20 seconds we turned and left, we explained out mistake but we're refused a refund. Really disgraceful. Avoid this place.

Iv been to Lilies many times over the last several years. Staff are great. Music is generally good mix of chart/pop.Drink selection is great and they serve some of my favourite cocktails in town. Been for several events and the canapés are the best around. Last visit was last Saturday 17th June. We went up to the library bar which is my favourite part of lilies. I love the piano, chilled out vibe and great service. It can be a little hit and miss getting up to the Library but we generally can get up. The bar man up there was wonderful and recommended me a cocktail that I adored and ended up drinking for the night but I can't remember the name of it unfortunately. We had such a fun night and I Highly recommend a visit. Even after all these years it's still Dublins premiere VIP spot. I can't wait to get back soon and (hopefully) spend more time chilling in the library listening to great music

We attended a wedding at this establishment. The entrance is easy to miss, unless you have a good description. If you have difficulty with stairs, avoid Lillies Bordello - it is a maze of different rooms, snugs, and bars, all on different levels, linked by stairs. There are spaces large and small, from open areas, for group activities (e.g. dancing) to cosy and intimate nooks. There is a dedicated gin distillation room behind one of the bars, a smoking area, a library. This is an ideal venue for parties, about 100 metres from the entrance to Trinity College.
