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.

Nice bar, good atmosphere but no COVID Cert check or tracing numbers and no mask usage. Should observe the regulations for the safety of everyone ☹️

Great pint of Guinness here 9 out of 10. Old Ireland is alive and well here . Friendly staff and great punters singing songs and telling stories about milking cows blindfolded. Top spot

Quick drink in this very interesting old style pub. Full of character, with old furniture and odd corners. Friendly welcome and Covid19 precautions carefully applied. Well worth a visit. Loved it.

During a recent hiking trip to Sligo I dropped in to Shoot the Crows for an evening. This was my local when I attended Sligo IT back in 2003, and it made me happy that this fantastic pub has retained all its charm. It was great to have a few lovely pints of Guinness in what I would consider one of the best pubs in the country. It's a pub full of character, and full of characters! The owner, Ronan, is still the same friendly, witty, interesting man he was 17 years ago, and made my wife and I feel very welcome. It filled me with absolute delight that the choice of music has stayed the same. Expect plenty of Tom Waits, Dave Van Ronk and Rory Gallagher!
Pubs like this are few and far between... unfortunately in my opinion. If you're in Sligo do yourself a favour and give Shoot the Crows a visit, you won't be disappointed!

A lot of reviews talk about the barman being a prick, if the barman is rude or arrogant then its not the barman its the owner his staff are all pleasant but if he is on himself which is most of the time you may get an aloof attitude . There is a fine tradition in Ireland particularly in the west that the Landlord of an establishment may have a difficult personality, this only leads to the charm and unique experience of the various ale houses, lest not forget the reason for the two part pour of that famous 'Irish' stout is nested in the Irish tradition of starting to pour a stranger a pint then waiting a few minutes to see if they're deemed decent before finishing their pint and serving them.

We where told this had the best pint in Sligo, maybe so! But we didn’t get to experience it. The bar man man with an awful attitude questioned what we ordered 3 times, then refused the 4th guest his order, in the most rude manner. I’ll make sure an an tell anyone in the north west to avoid this bar with an awful attitude.
