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 back from a really fantastic afternoon and evening spent in the snug. Gillian, Michael and Dermot were so kind and helpful for any of the needs of the group. We had a hen party and had a wonderful area out in the beer garden to host our games. Later we had a room upstairs which was also fantastic. The cocktails were divine and the great live music went down great with the hens.

Stopped in here for a few pints with a couple of friends when visiting Athlone for the night. Sat and the bar and had a few lovely pints of Guinness. Bar man was sound. Good atmosphere when we were there. Would def stop by for a pint again if in the area.
