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.

Actually cannot recommend this pub more. The bar man was great. So welcoming and pulls a great pint of Murphy's :) Definitely hit this place up if you like a pub. We went in October and the place was packed and the fire was on. Great spot.

The nostalgia. History everywhere, reminds me of the one my Grandmother had Tapp's Tap.

Met the owners, coming from the USA it reminded me of Cheers.

Traditional old Irish pub. Fabulous for tourists and locals alike. A step back in time. Lovely open fire and a great pint.

Mary! Nobody quite like her! During my time as Regional Sales Manager for Beamish and Crawford in the mainland and based in Newcastle Upon Tyne I had the privilege of many visits to Cork and these visits consisted of not only a tour of the brewery but a visit to beautiful Kinsale and a quick visit to The Tap Tavern and the wonderful Mary. It really was a step back in time with her push button A telephone box and a tour of Tim's forge to the rear. Kinsale is truly a wonderful town and full of so much rich Irish heritage. I do miss it so!
Love to everyone there and apologies for not mentioning all of my wonderful friends there. Oh to visit again.

Gorgeous cosy little pub with turf fire and loads of original features interesting artefacts and lots of interesting photos.
When we were there, Mary the proprietor was a great hostess with time tlo sit and chat while we enjoyed a few pints.

She had some very interesting points of view on life and we enjoyed hearing and debating them with her!

Has to be on your to do list when in Kinsale.

We went for the Ghost tour but it was pouring rain so we didn't get the full tour but they were super accommodating and took us on a tiny tour once the rain stopped for a bit. Stayed the remaining evening for some wonderful conversation and a few pints.

This is a great little pub. Nothing fancy, nothing phony, a tiny pub that has warmth. Had the pleasure to be served by "Queen Mary" the 83-year-old owner. She is well known by the locals.
Friendly, authentic pub where we enjoyed great lively conversations about international politics. Good prices and a real treat to feel like you belong. Just a short walk up from the harbor.
