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.

As a single white girl trying to have fun on a night out the male bouncers personally victimised me. They said they’d throw me on the street and I’m just dirt. They were not friendly in any way and would not associate myself with this pub ever again. They are too involved with protocols and rules than letting people interact and enjoy themselves. In the world we live in today throwing a young adult female on the street is not acceptable anymore. I hope you train your staff better. This was paddy’s day @6:38pm2024

Faultless experience. My brother had his 30th in Taylors on Saturday night. The whole family was there including the dog who was made feel spectacularly welcome, and my Dad who uses a walking aid enjoyed nothing but comfort.
Really couldn't have asked for any more.
Superb porter and the staff were like family. The music was very fitting and even though we sat beside the musicians the conversation was unintruded upon.
We'll be back next chance we get! Top marks to Taylors
Thanks to everyone

Bouncers turned my two friends away at 12.30 for being drunk. Neither were and both small mid 30's inoffensive lads. No prob with me though who's far bigger and had same 5 pints. Went to Munroes instead and had 4 more drinks. If you are going to refuse someome for being drunk at least chat to them - ask their name, where they're from, where they were and how much they drank.Id be annoyed if I owned the pub - tough business.

All the staff were absolutely amazing. Couldn’t do enough for us when I arranged a surprise party for my daughter. Live music. Drink was great. I can’t praise everyone enough. Always enjoyed going to Taylor’s but last night was such a memorable experience. Can’t wait to go back

This was our first stop in Galway and we really liked the place with great staff and a nice layout with a beer garden at the back. There was a private function going on in the beer garden so we found a table inside for a few drinks before we moved on for some food. They had a musician just started as we were leaving and we were tempted to stay for a couple more drinks but we had a early start so we left.

Lovely outdoor area which was lively, really nice unusual cocktails and good live music. The inside seemed to have a more relaxed atmosphere
