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 were recommended this establishment from a local man. I wanted good bar food and plentiful. This is exactly what I got. A great inviting welcome and nothing was a problem. All staff very friendly and chatty. It was busy but staff very relaxed and well able to cope. Excellent working organised team. Menu great variety from great sized steaks, great buffalo wings, fish, stir fry, paninis etc. All meals came with freshly cut potato chips and a side salad also. Presentation excellent, quick service and food and plates hot when served. Change to meals etc was no problem. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended. I will be back in the future. They also have a lovely beer garden if you want to enjoy the weather or bring your pet dog. Well Done all.

Attended a family event here, great food and quick service in a nice outside area with accompanying music (and cat!), great location in the middle of Athlone that is easily accessible from all areas. Affordable food and drinks and caring and attentive staff that were always on hand to ensure maximum guest satisfaction

Popped into the Bailey for dinner and a drink, had no booking but they were so accommodating. Served by Paidi who was extremely friendly and helpful, made us feel right at home. Great choice on menu and the wraps we got were amazing, will 100% be back for more!

My husband and I stopped in Athlone to get something to eat and my husband found this absolute gem on line. A warm, friendly atmosphere from the minute you walk in the door. Staff were friendly and efficient. Our food was delicious! A varied menu to suit everyone and divine desserts!
We will be back again on our journey home!

Wouldn’t recommend!! Stayed there with family that included 1 adult and 4 teenagers. Went to sleep early on the first night we stayed there as we were tired from travelling all day. Until we were woken up from one of the member of staff very loudly banging our door down. We woke up in a shock as it was so loud and when we opened the door this staff member began to accuse 2 of the teenagers of pulling a knife on the boss down the street in a completely different area. We were confused as we were in bed by 10 oclock. He began to say we were the only people staying here even though all day we seen people checking in to their rooms. We then began to notice this member staff was under the influence of drugs over the way he was reacting. We questioned why he didn’t go to the guards as the guard station is right across the road from the baileys , and not only that he had no proof only Snapchat messages that the boss messaged him , which gave no description on who it was. The place is also full of working cameras. The next morning the manager didn’t try to solve this issue or bring it up when we came down to the bar. We had to say it to him. He apologised about what happened and said it was a mistake. We questioned how was it a mistake when we were personally targeted. The situation wasn’t resolved and we only got an apology for being treated this way. It is also very loud in the area so wouldent recommend if your looking for a good night sleep or if you are with children.

Food and presentation was excellent. Salad freshly prepared and chips with skins on were so tasty. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The Eton Mess and Lemon Meringue were delish. We will definitely be back.
