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.

We were asked to pay for our food before it would be served to us the time was was only about 4.30 pm so the place wasnt closing.The people sitting close to us were not asked to pay before eating.this is discriminating and wrong. Will not be back.

An amazing visit with great views and awesome music. We stopped here with Shane on our Rural Pub tour and it was the perfect end to a great tour.

Visited the Blue Light on a sunny evening in Dublin. There is a great view of town from the Dublin mountains. The pub is cozy and sometimes there are live music as well. There is a spacious outdoor terrace with several bench and tables. And they have a very good pint of Guinness. The staff were quite nice and attentive, despite the busy evening.

Not what I expected from the reviews, the place is filthy, food wasn’t great, I expected more for the price they charge, but worst of all they closed the bar at 9 pm although there were lots of people still looking for drinks, I presumed they stayed open until 11.30 like every other pub in Ireland..not impressed, won’t be back!

I went to Blue Light Pub on a Sunday afternoon around 14:00 with 3 friends, we grabbed some coffees for 17.7 euro. After we drunk the coffees some musitians arrived, so we decided to stay for some pints. We waited for the waiter to come and take a new order but he kept running up and down without considering us. Eventually, around 16:10 the manager came asking in a rude manner if we were to dring something, so we said yes and ordered some pints. Right after the waiter came to place a "reserved" plate on our table. So I asked what's the meaning and they answered that there were customers coming at 17:00, I replied back that we were customers already sitting it that place, he said they have a policy for customers drinking only to stay max 2 hours at the table. I went to speack with the manager and the answer was the same.

I felt unwanted and poorly served. I believe such rudness cannot be forgiven. Never again in such place where they do not know the basic rules of savoir-faire, quality service and politness.

Moreover, the place was dirty and the coffee quality was questionable!

The whole thing was a disaster. They didn't ask me or my family for their covid certs. The pints were awful got 2 Guinness and the heads were huge and taste vile. My wife got a gin and tonic she basically got a whole glass of gin. The food arrived nearly an hour late got the beef burger it wasn't cooked fully brought it back it was delicious but the worst of all a big rat ran into the kicthen. We told the staff and they went looking for it but no good effort in trying to get seemed like they didn't care. I would not in a million years come back to this place and neither used use!.

A great experience, the pub was in a fantastic location, had great views and felt very authentic. A great pint of Guiness and possible the best Vegan burger I have ever had, the food really was beyond expectations. Great place to visit, well worth the trip out of the City
