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.

    This is a wonderful amenity to have within a few minutes walk from my home but I am a Kerry woman living in close proximity to sandy beaches without steep shelving in my home town. I love this place because I have seen the most beautiful sunrises but I am not a confident swimmer and I don't like the steep shelving. One gets out of one's depth very quickly and while there are lifeguards here I still don't feel safe. That's why I am hoping they will put lifeguards at the Cove next year; less shelving, more safe and gradual sloping into the deep! You cod do the glorious and less travelled walk to Wicklow/Newcastle/Kicoole, parallel to the railway line in quiet terrain without being isolated and where you can observe the Little Terns and the quiet seasons of nature far from motorways and traffic.. just an odd train here and there... They toot if you wave madly like the railway children! This is wonderful and I love it. Thank you Greystones, Kilcoole, Newcastle, Blackditch and, finally, Wicklow. Great way to leave it all behind. Enjoy!

    Bang in the centre of Greystones just a short walk from the Dart station. Many restaurants and cafes nearby. Unusual decor in the place many big sofas feels like you are more like in your living room than a bar. Pretty busy spot. Age group varies but usually 30 to 40 year olds predominantly frequent here. Service is good staff alright. Sometimes though you get the impression that they feel that they are more important than the customer and that they might be somehow doing you a favour when serving you. Maybe it's an Irish thing. But overall would recommend.

    This gem, next to the Beach House at Greystones Harbour is lovely. The stock a wide range of prints, both artwork and photographic, of local, Wicklow and Irish subjects. Prices go from cards at €4 to full size limited prints. The person I dealt with very informed, very friendly. A great spot to pick up moments of your visit or gifts for friends.

    A sweet shop of a by gone era, my childhood days, not very common these days. Just enjoyed a mixed bag of delicious jelly’s, from shelves of different kinds of sweets/ candies. A treat.
