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.

    I always enjoy walking around castles and seeing all the paintings, furniture and stylings of the place, and really enjoyed doing all of these aspects of Dublin Castle. It was easy to navigate around and fairly cheap entry. It was still in a Christmas theme when we went which was nice but I would have preferred to see something else

    Building dates from 18 century, it's located in Dublin city center - Dame street. It's next to the Dublin castle, so it's great to do both tours. In town hall you'll find beautiful exhibition about historical Dublin.

    A historic landmark building dating back to 1786 on the Northern bank of the River Liffey in the western part of central Dublin. Did not venture inside as we had limited time but it is a magnificent structure with its colonnaded rotunda and neo-classical dome. Certainly worth stopping to admire for 5 minutes and take a snap or two.

    The GPO museum Is extremely well done and provides a great overview of the 1916 Rising and the Irish war of independence. Spending time here first will give you a much greater depth of understanding for visiting other sites in the city. The videos are particularly well done!

    This building houses the Irish Parliament and it’s steeped in history. Also it’s a stunning piece or architecture. Well worth a visit.

    This is an important civic building at the head of one of the best preserved Georgian streets in North Dublin. The exterior of grey stone is imposing and impressive. Pleasant grounds have benches to rest on as you take a break from your walk around the city.

    Interesting from a architecture point of view . Nice rounded building set just off the Liffey and close to the entrance to the Phoenix Park.

    A multitude of windows are on the facades, the objective being to have the best views of the sky, a requirement that was communicated to the architect by the weather forecasters.

    Built in 1979 it has an innovative and distinctive pyramidal design, which took account of the above stipulation and additionally minimised sunlight reduction on neighbouring homes. It was constructed on the site of Marlborough House, a remand home for boys.
