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.

    Busy Busy Busy!!! We can now appreciate all the completed tram lines etc that have been added and completed in O'Connell Street. It is a fantastic street which is very popular and is used very heavily by people and vehicles. This street is the heart and central hub of Dublin and I always remembered as a young man coming here and going to Clery's (Department Store) It is still there but closed and under refurbishment. It will be nice to see it in use again.

    Lovely arcade inside and out with some amazing vendors. If you like nice quality souvenirs/ artworks this a must stop! We picked up some great gifts and all the vendors were really nice.

    Friday 29th July and we walked from the Shelleybanks beach, near the base of the two iconic red and white chimneys and disused power station, along this wall at the mouth of the River Liffey.

    It took us forty-five minutes to walk from one end to the other. It is roughly a 4 kilometre walk (just under two and a half miles).

    The construction of the wall was completed in 1795 and it was at one time the longest in the world

    Roughly half way along the wall we passed the former base of the Half Moon Swimming and Waterpolo Club. Some brave people were braving the windy and cool conditions and swimming in the sea as we walked by here.

    From the wall there are the most wonderful panoramic views across Dublin Bay from Howth to Dalkey Island, Bray, Wicklow and beyond. We were also able to see the boats and ferries manoeuvre their way along the river in and out of the Port.

    We could also see some notable landmarks such as the Aviva Stadium, Bray Head, Dublin and Wicklow Mountains. We are convinced that we also saw Croke Park in the distance.

    At the very end of the Wall is the iconic Poolbeg Lighthouse, the Red Lighthouse a major feature of Dublin Bay.

    The massive stones used to construct the wall, which came from the quarries at Dalkey, were a bit uneven in places, so would recommend wearing sturdy footwear.

    It was a bit blustery and overcast when we walked along here. It is closed when there are high winds and rough seas

    There are signs about the place asking that visitors take their rubbish away with them, sadly not everyone complied.

    Really nice place, looks quite posh from outside but very welcoming inside, staff is super friendly and the door man is very charming , really recommend. Inside it has quite rustic feel and very cosy, love it, it's a shame we missed this place and came just last minute before we left. Double Lucas are the best!
