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.

    Tons of gift options that are reasonably priced. We found something for everyone. We’re so glad that it was in walking distance to our hotel.

    This was a real treat. I happened to walk in during a reading of Ulysses and got to participate. PJ Murphy sang a song for us, I got his autograph, I got to speak some French, Italian, Spanish, and English to him. He's pretty incredible. The store has an amazing history and is basically a time capsule of the apothecary. It was a wonderful treat to be there, a place where world dignitaries have visited. Take a moment to step inside and absorb a literary landmark.

    I own a beautiful Kevin and Howlin Donegal Tweed jacket. It's a wonderful piece of clothing. Shops like this are to be treasured!

    The shop was smaller than I expected but a nice selection of whiskeys and very knowledgeable staff and good prices. I understand that you can also order on line but I’ve not tried that. Easy access via the tram or a reasonable walk from the Temple Bar area.

    I had no idea exactly how big this bookstore is. It's 3 floors plus a basement and the floors are a good size. Tons of books here. Sure to find something you'll want here!

    The Kilkenny Store is in a great position on Nassau street and popular with locals and tourists. They showcase Irish artists and designers in their store. It s great store for gifts or something special for the home.
    Upstairs they have a fabulous cafe with great fresh food and lovely views out over Nassau Street. Well worth visiting.

    We had a fantastic time with the crew in the Artisan Brew Academy, Don has a great set-up and we thoroughly our time there, some of the best laughs we've had in ages. Tasty beers, some samples of wine and a bit of education on the whole process, top class, especially if you're a group like us looking for an afternoon activity when on a stag party and something a little different from the normal run of activities around, highly recommend!!

    I walked by the shop and was intrigued that they offered both coffee and chocolates. The ladies working there could not have been nicer. I ordered two coffees and was surprised that I could choose a chocolate for each coffee. That was a very nice treat and the chocolate was delicious. The coffee was very good too.

    This was a nice visit, I was staying a few blocks away. I haven't read Ulysses (apart from the final pages), I think it would've been more interesting if I had. (I have read Dubliners and Portrait, which I loved). The building is very pretty, and I enjoyed the bedroom and art exhibits. I went during a weekday afternoon and had it entirely to myself, which was nice. It felt a bit like it needed freshening up. Not that it was unclean, just that it needed something different, I'm not sure. I stayed for about 30 minutes, I think you can easily see everything in under an hour. The walking tours are supposed to be good, I didn't have time for that.

    The shop is charming, the quality of wool and accessories exceptional and the staff of experienced knitters always helpful. I love the Saturday knitting workshops in which I first learned to knit. I continue to attend regularly for assistance with increasingly challenging projects and for the companionship of fellow knitters and encouraging staff.

    A nice attractive shop and staff I was attracted by all the cosy knitwear. I purchased a jumper was very pleased until I got home and had a good look at it. Looks gorgeous but you can see through it how is that going to keep you warm. The seams are machine sewn together a hand knitted jumper is never machine knitted together.

    I was a hand knitter years ago for my children but don’t now because of arthritis. I was so disappointed to see the seams machined. I feel let down paying a lot of money for a jumper I have no interest in wearing it’s not a genuine article.

    We were part of a food tour that visited Sheridans Cheesemongers where we were given a true treat. This place is owned and operated by brothers, Kevin Sheridan and Seamus Sheridan and founded in 1995. The brothers started selling Irish farmhouse cheeses at the Galway market and later opened a shop in Galway with Irish farmhouse cheeses filling the shelves. The Dublin store and the South Anne Street shop in the city center were soon opened as well now have shops and markets in numerous cities across Ireland. They soon had Irish cheeses along with other European cousins as well as a huge range of other artisan foods including olive oils, cured meats, condiments and pasta sourced during travels in Europe. This place was filled with cheesed and was chilled to make sure freshness was preserved. You could actually use a coat in this place. The staff were all friendly and they had a place for us in the back room where some cheese was cut and placed on a board for us to try. This place would be great to stop by and order cheese for family or guests...great place! I would recommend that everyone come and say 'CHEESE'!
