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.

The monumental column that stands in the centre of Birr, which was erected to commemorate the Duke of Cumberland is the first of its type to have been erected in Ireland. It consists of a monumental Doric column standing on a tall square pedestal that rises to a height of 13.5 m or just under 44 feet. It dominates the fine central square in which it stands providing an elegant urban landmark on the principal axes of the town. Constructed in 1746-7, to the design of a young Irish architect called samuel Chearnley, it was commissioned by a local landowner sir Lawrence Parsons of the nearby Birr Castle, to commemorate the English victory, under Cumberland, over the scots at Culloden.
