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 went mainly to see the Book of Kells - It's worth the money. A beautiful campus. We decided to forgo the audio tour and just wandered around a bit. The gift store is great (we were able to find lots of gifts for our family/friends back home - I recommend the chess set - it's fantastic!)

    This is a must see in Dublin. The admission is worth it, especially if you take the tour by one of the knowledgeable guides. Our guide was Jean. She really made the tour interesting and educational. The cathedral has many things similar to Westminster Abbey in London which Jean made a point to mention.

    This beautiful church has a very rich history and you will enjoy visiting.

    We enjoyed the castle tour. The young man who checked us in was very friendly and was able to get us lined up for a guided tour starting very soon. The tour itself could give more Castle history and especially the upstair rooms. The Christmas decorations were beautiful.

    There are numerous bridges that cross the River Liffey and this is one of the more aesthetically pleasing designs. Its cable arch shape resembles a harp which is somewhat appropriate. The bridge is relatively modern and is elegant.

    Needed to spend 30 odd mins in the afternoon so decided to go check out this impressive building.

    The gentleman who gave us out leaflet when we paid was very polite and told us a brief overview of the building, also making sure we were aware we can as staff questions if we wish,

    Decent balance of reading and pictures as you go round. The part of the exhibition that covers the IRA burning of the building was both interesting and sensitively covered.

    Well worth a look.

    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.

    Located at College Green – just opposite Trinity College, this beautiful building was originally the House of Lords in Ireland and retains the décor and artefacts of its previous history. Just go into the bank and in the main teller hall there are displays of historical coinage and financial instruments, which is worth a look. However, you can sometimes go into the Lords’ Chamber, now a meeting room – just ask, it’s worth a look for 5 minutes

    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.
