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.

    The historic castle was not only home to the British and Irish governments but host to many dignitaries and writers like Charles Dickens and Bram Stoker. Its high ceilings and ornate chandeliers are beautiful as are the rugs, drapes, portraits and everything else. I loved it!

    Our guide Maria was really excellent today. She went at our pace - there were only two of us, i think on account of Bloom being on in the Phoenix park as well which was a bonus for us. Her knowledge of the house was impressive and her manner very relaxed informative and pleasant. The exhibitions in the Gallery were also absorbing and interesting. Altogether a lovely day - thank you Maria!

    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.

    Yes, the post office in O'Connell Street is a place where you can buy stamps and send parcels but it is also a place significant in Irish History as it is a place where there was a battle fought for the liberation of Ireland from the British.

    Located opposite the Spire it is quite easy to find if you are exploring the city.

    It was possible to visit the structure only from the outside, one of the key-places of the Rising in 1916

    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.

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

    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.
