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.

If in Kingscourt then a visit to Gartlans pub is a must. We got a very warm welcome and the interior is a throw back from years gone by. Traditional music every Sunday 6-930. And the pints of Guinness are top quality.

We toured the south of Ireland with a tour company and were in a lot of overcrowded pubs along the way. Having watched The Irish Pub I knew this gem was there. We stayed at Cabra Castle and decided to take a taxi ride into town to visit Gartlans. Sheila was working and a local, John, came in. We had a great visit and had a great time visiting with Barney the cabbie also. It was our last night in Ireland and our best I might add.

After going there a couple times it was finally open. Staff was nice very small not what we expected. Has live music later in the night. Very old but it is the way they want it to be.You will get the feeling of what it was like in the day.

Gartlan's in Kingscourt is a great find and a little gem. Located down one end of the town you can't miss the white facade and the lovely thatched roof with the splendour of old. Pub is now well known for it traditional Irish music on both Thursday and Sundays with maybe some music on other nights if you are lucky.

Pádraig the owner is a great host and is known to play music when he can. Lovely little bar, has to be seen to be believed. Its a step back in time to the days of old. Credit to the owners on the restoration in the last few years getting this back to its former glory. Will be back.

Had the privilege to have a drink in Gartlan's pub. It's like stepping back in time. Shows what a bar would have been like back in the day. I loved its charm an character. There is even a part that still resembles an old shop, that would have been in the bar years ago. An the owner pauric is a gentleman, really nice to talk too. If you are in kingscourt give it a call. Have a lovely pint an some craic

Had a lovely few drinks here in the company of nice and friendly Cavan people. The proprietor in particular is a gem, comes across as a gentleman with a genuine interest in who you are and making you feel welcome. Easy knowing he’s half a mayo man ;-) The few characters at the bar helped make the atmosphere jovial and we had a lovely few hours here. Keep up the good work, we look forward to coming back.

Popped in after the St Patrick’s parade for a quick drink and stayed much longer. The people, hospitality and the way we were welcomed as first time visitors was absolutely fantastic. Traditional pub with good local music and amazing people. Would give it a higher score if I could! Definitely worth a visit if you in the area!

We were staying at Cabra Castle and they had recommended we try a night out over to Gartlans Pub to have a few pints and meet the locals. What a WONDERFUL time we had! The atmosphere is just infectious and everyone is so welcoming - we ended up staying much longer than we anticipated and drank much more than we thought too :-) Anyone passing through Kingscourt for a night should at least pop in for a drink or two, the experience and memories are well worth it. Been home for over a month and I'm still singing about Ryanair!
