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.

    We have been to Nano Nagle Place unsure about what was on there.
    We found a positive, relaxing, mystic place where we could also learn a lot on what was life in Cork, in the XVIII century.
    Thanks one million to Agnes, who is such a communicative and sparkling person, who introduced us in the life and deeds of Venerable Nano Nagle, and thanks too to Gerry, so exhaustive in teaching us about the history of Cork in the past and its social life.
    We had a great visit.

    Went for a private tour in the evening. The tour was informative and it was nice to have the space to ourselves.

    The historical explanations, the film, the power room are exciting,
    so are the stands for the photos, the boss's viewpoint and the factory worker's experience

    Passage West is awash with maritime history and it's being brought to life at this new museum. The attractiveness of the artefacts on display contributed to
    a very enjoyable experience .
