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.

had a nice pint or two with a colleague, then two French guys show up out of the blue and are really friendly. See 'Turkish knockout' scam, as in taksim. Had to leave in when it got obvious and two big blokes walked passed bar casing us. Followed one half down the street. Both Scarpered, split and went round the other way home to the hotel. Otherwise nice place with good beer. One on corner seemed fine earlier in evening, one up street more dogey

I enjoy EVERY Pint of frish GUINNESS when i be there. Probably... NO .... CERTAINLY the best corner ( and i mean so ) from All Old town from Nantes.
Excellent and quick service, really traditional Irish Pub like you can find in Temple Bar from Dublin, but THIS IS in Nantes....
And that make the after work time pretty comfortable and pleasant....
Thank to the team behind the bar to serve so generously Beer and boose!!!!!

I have recently visited the pub 'john mcbyrne' during my recent trip to Nantes, France and there were certain inadequacies I distinguished during my experience. First of all I would like to point out the county jerseys, as a Galway man myself I felt violated by the lack of a Galway jersey!!!! Within this pub. As you can imagine, I really took this to heart and feel scarred by this experience. Another observation of mine was the name of the pub. During my 57 years in Ireland I have never come across someone by the name 'mcbyrne' and am curious to the etymology of this name. However this fact did not affect my pub-going experience.
On the other hand, I was impressed by the good service, good atmosphere and free peanuts, which is why I will reward this pub with 2 stars.

You'll find people more people speaking English than French here and most nights. John Mcbyrne is somewhere where you can have a good choice of beers and the atmosphere is good, lots of friendly people about.

Had the pleasure of spending a lot of time with all of the guys at John Mcbyrne during my year uni year abroad. All of the guys are great and were welcoming from day one and as a bonus it was free peanuts and sky sports! Make sure you drop in for a cheeky Guinness (or 5) when visiting Nantes.

We were here on St Patrick's Day so the place was buzzing. But one very notable thing. Extremely friendly staff. Pub is done up old world which adds to atmosphere. Good Guinness. Worth calling to

As long as i'm concerned this pub gave me the feeling of one very friendly neighborhood with a very friendly and chatty staff. The serving was excellent and the employees were efficient on gaving the right suggestions.
If it would be up to me i'd go there every saturday night with my friends and enjoy a very nice, cold beer.

Stopped here for a Smithwick's with some friends. Lovely little place with indoor and outdoor tables. Friendly staff, even purchased a few shirts while here. Nice stop on a wonderful tour day in Nantes!
