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.

Amazing bar, with incredibly kind staff and locals. Shannon was behind the bar all night, and was absolutely fantastic. Great live music, even on a Monday, and there was outdoor seating in the back if you needed some air. They also relayed the live music through the whole bar's sound system, so you could continue to listen if you stepped away.

Cheers from California Kyle!

We had Day 2 of our wedding in James Griffin recently and had an absolutely blast. Their manager Shannon was so friendly and easy to deal with, from the point of booking to the day itself. We had our own private bar, and they even had a lovely personalised welcome sign and decorated the room with balloons. The food provided was delicious and there wasn’t a sandwich left. Later that night, a complimentary DJ was provided and kept the party going. Our guests really enjoyed the atmosphere, Guinness and music. We cannot wait to return and would highly recommend to couples looking for a place to enjoy a few drinks for Day 2 of the wedding.

We visited James Griffins at the weekend, we had such a blast the Friday night that we returned the Saturday and Sunday.
All the staff were so friendly, they went above and beyond to not only serve us but to have a bit of crack too.

Absolutely loved it here. We went for a few drinks on a very busy Saturday night. The staff are so friendly and very attentive. You will find the perfect pint of Guinness here! Great night in the James Griffin pub, was lovely to be out in a busy but safe space feeling like things are somewhat back to normal! Would highly recommend this pub.

Fantastic pub! Spent a New Years here and it was a great venue to ring in the new year. There was live music, friendly staff, great food and good service. Also a lovely spot to cosy up on cold evenings for a more low key night. Couldn't recommend more highly!

A must hit spot whenever in Trim! An authentic Irish pub with top class hospitality (and not a bad Guinness pour either 😉). They’ve extended out the back to have many different areas that suit whatever you’re after - be it a cosy snug, dance floor or outdoor tables to catch the afternoon sun. Attentitive service where you rarely will have an empty glass in front of you and the toilets are always spotless. The little things are always thought of here! Do yourself a favour and get down to Lenihans. I for one can’t wait for a post-Covid trip.

Whilst you now enter the James Griffin pub from the rear due to Pandemic Laws the charm has not been lost. Superb service in a spotless environment! The drinks are pretty good too - full table service.

Called into the bar for a drink. On entering it was like going back in time. The place was olde world. On further inspection I found that the rear of the building openened out to a modern place. People very friendly. We spoke to the bar maid can't spell her name who was lovely and very helpful. Would recommend this place for a good time. Live music after 6.30. A great selection of whiskeys and gins.
