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.

    One word AMAZING! Do not miss it when you visit Dublin! A lot to see and hear. If you love music you have to go here! You even can stand on the same stage where some rocklegends have performed! So do not scroll and think but just book your tickets and enjoy!!

    It is not possible to visit Dublin without visiting some bars in Temple Bar. Very relaxed atmosphere, but like all places with lot of bars, there are a lot of people drunk on the street.

    We enjoyed this rich exhibit, which was thoughtfully curated. It was lovely to hear recordings of some of Seamus Heaney’s own voice.

    We walked past this bar and saw that there was live music on Sunday night. We had a great time. Beers were exceptional, the band were great and we had a wonderful night. Thoroughly recommend a visit when your next in Dublin!

    Saw a wonderful play (Curious case of Albert Cashier). Lovely theatre. Best part was the person working the ticket counter. We had stopped by to find out what was playing and got great advice. We couldn’t decide so left and came back later to buy. Superior customer service. Really enjoyed our first Irish play!

    On my coach holiday to Ireland just had to check out the Temple bar while visiting Dublin. As it was very busy I only had a look around no chance of finding a seat and didn't fancy my chances of getting to the bar or getting served. Lots of people about outside too. Good to see security as I was on my own, there was no trouble and people were behaving

    My husband and I brought our five year old granddaughter to the Ark recently. We booked for an original production called "The Race." We really didn't know what to expect and I was the only one of the three of us who had ever been in the Ark before.
    The show was signed from the start and the performers used mime, dance, and dialogue throughout. The visuals, costumes and puppets were absolutely brilliant and the artists were truly talented. The story centred around the Aesop fables, "The Hare and the Tortoise" and "The Lion and the Mouse."
    It was imaginatively presented, with originality, humour and on-going audience engagement encouraged.
    I'm genuinely sorry that the date we were there was the final one for that show. I would love to have been able to bring more of my family to see it.
    The staff were clearly very well trained and were all welcoming and professional .
    I will definitely be back in the Ark at the earliest opportunity

    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

    Very low key. About five vendors with some nice bread and cheese. Not worth going out of your way.

    We visited The Icon Walk with our tour guide Patrick during his 4-hour called “Dublins best kept secrets”. It is a community of artists who have transformed back roads into a living art project. Lots of dedicated artists make the Icon Factory to a fun place to visit, buy pieces of art or some unique souvenirs to support this project. Take some time to have a chat with e.g. Anthony about art, Dublin and the world. You will not regret it.
    The Icon Factory is under threat because the landlord wants to use the space for a restaurant and the artists have not yet found a new space. I really do not understand why the city does not support and promote such a great place!

    We went to see a Royal Irish Academy of Music opera. The opera was excellent. The space it was in was modern space with bench seating on either seating on either side. The lobby was complete with bar for before and after the show. The center was also hosting an art exhibition and lectures about disabled artists.

    A lovely place for a pause- right in the midst of it all. I enjoyed looking at all the different sculptures too.

    A nice and free little exhibit that had some interesting photos and was a welcome respite from the rain. Pretty small and won’t take very long to see everything. There was a super cute little market right outside on the morning that we went and we got some great coffee and some of the best sausage rolls ever.

    We had lunch here. My mom and I split the fish and chips, it was huge so glad we did. My brother ordered a cheeseburger. The food and atmosphere was great! Looks like a fun bar at night.
