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.

Just had a wonderful experience at Jack Cs bar. The family who owned the bar was so nice and friendly including Ginny, the bar dog. It’s a small bar with about 5 tables and same number of bar stools. Perfect for an intimate experience in Ireland. We would definitely want to come back again if we return to Ireland.

To any women reading this, PLEASE DO NOT GO HERE.

Firstly, I cannot fault the 2 staff members I met. I did not catch their names but from what I can gather, they were mother and son.

What I can fault is the older locals. A local man completely harassed me. All he saw was a woman in her 20s and beelined for me. Stood no more than 15cm from my face asking was a married, "is that a skirt?", demanded I "take off my mask" (covid times) amongst many other things. I felt absolutely terrified. His friends were as daunting, laughing and jeering at his disgusting antics. From what I can see from the pictures, he is branded a 'local hero'. He and his friends are nothing less than disgusting and stuck in the past, a past that I won't accept.

After asking this man to move and leave me alone, what did he do? He moved closer and stood his ground. A group of men jeering at a woman is terrifying.

The mentality of "ah sure that's only (insert name)" is simply not good enough. I had to shout "get out of my way/move/LEAVE ME ALONE" at least 5 times so that he would get the picture. His friends made feeble attempts to dampen the situation.

We then moved to the lane way bar and when asked why we had moved we were met with "ah yeah". NOT good enough.

If you are a woman or in a group with a women in it, avoid this pub. Left shaking and felt physically ill after this.

Hopefully this will help at least 1 woman from avoiding this place!

A proper locals Irish Pub which welcomes locals and tourists, the pub itself has real character and is indeed populated by true local ‘characters’. The pub is run by charming down to earth people, who will chat away to you and give you any information you need about the locality.

The pint of Guinness here is as good as any I’ve ever had.

The pub is truly a step-back in time and by that I mean there is good and bad. It’s a little worse for wear in some places but in a way that does add to the overall charm.

I think it is my favorite pub in Killarney

Great bar with friendly people. Very cozy and authentic, very warm service. Came with my O’Shea cousin to see a family-named pub and was not disappointed! Great Guinness, will come back!

This is my favourite pub in Killarney. It's tiny but welcoming with space for about 10-15 patrons.

The only is friendly as were the customers. It's quaint and unique, long may it continue as it is.

Sweet little lady owner pours a pint with a smile. Small quiet pub on the main drag. Missed seeing the gran pour a pint from his step stool.
