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.

We stopped in late afternoon to have a whiskey tasting flight. This was our first experience with Irish whiskey and it was great fun. Bartender Alex is knowledgeable and did a fine job educating us. The bar has a good, funky atmosphere and was certainly the right place for our “school “. Most enjoyable.

Exactly what you expect an irish pub to be like. More locals here and still friendly. We enjoyed our time here.

Aggressive and Ill mannered door staff make this place one to avoid in Kinsale. One is the few late night places in the town offers nothing in the way of enjoyment for locals or visitors due to poor managed and unfriendly staff.

Aggressive and discourteous management and security staff. Definitely wont be back. an excellent evening of convivial music and craic roundly destroyed by ill mannered and bad tempered staff last saturday night. Completely unnecessary and so far over the top its difficult to describe an analogous altitude.

Lovely evening until closing time when insistent security staff, following instructions from the lady who jammed the doors open, suggested that the group ( average age 60) should move into the night club

Crackin spot in the centre of Kinsale for live music, good craic and drinks. Plenty of Irish Whiskey to try and a great range of new gins too! Try the Black's Gin.

We love craft beer (specifically IPAs) and we're recommended this place by a waiter at Max's. We told the bartender what we liked and she brought us 3 samples. We hit the jackpot with 2! And everyone who came in and sat down was so friendly. We had a great experience.

If you want to hear some of the best music possible, step on in. From Blues, Folk and Jazz to some great Irish traditional, it's a must
