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.

Such a cosy and friendly bar with a large range of drinks including lovely cocktails. The food was incredible, the large selection and diverse ranging from Asian to Traditional Roasts. The Prawns Pil Pil starter is awesome but the star of the show for me was indeed the chicken wings. They are really great value at only 7 euro and one might be tempted to go for the main course plate which comes with salad and chips. Fresh Ballycotton fish is always on the menu and there is something for everyone in the gem of a bar

Amazing food, portion size was and not over priced. I would say really good value. Food was cooked to a high standard and presented well. I chose the fish goujons. Compliments to Rory and his team in the kitchen. Bar and waiting staff were efficient and friendly. The big surprise was the entertainment. We were met by a DJ in a marquee at 6pm and then as the night went on, a live band played a gig and everyone was up dancing. The Goldpost is a little gem in East Cork and welcoming to all ages where you don't have to pay city prices. Cocktails were excellent too with fresh ingredients. I will be back for sure.

Met with group of friends during the week at The Goal Post. Friendly, welcoming staff and proprietor. Great buzz and atmosphere.
Had the pleasure of meeting the acclaimed chef and his charming wife. Sampling the food was a must and difficult to decide on a choice from the well thought out menu. Hence, another visit a must in the very near future.

We had a lovely meal in The Goal Post at the June bank holiday. Seafood chowder with home made brown bread to start was top class. We had fish of the day (pan fried hake) and Thai green curry with prawns as mains and they were delicious. Reasonable priced and the staff were very nice. Very busy spot but still service was fast. It was a bit noisy but everything else made up for it.

Went here twice during our short stay and loved it. They also have a food truck outside " Fry Guys" which does all the usual staples which are all good, especially fish and chips.
Landlady is very friendly and funny too.
There was music there on Saturday night..I would have liked to have stayed for a bop!

Enjoyed a few drinks here during recent visit to Shanagarry.
Kids enjoyed the pool table.
Didn't try the food, but look forward to trying it next visit.
