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 place was specious, clean and breakfast was great. The service for breakfast and the gentleman at checkin was great. This would have been a 5 star rating but the gentleman who checked us out was extremely rude and condescending. Morning started off great until I encountered him.

We were visiting Ireland with our two small children and we were able to to utilize the family room at Kinvara Guesthouse. It was perfect for our family. Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable and breakfast was lovely. The best part was the customer service though. My daughter left her favorite lovies (two small blankets and three small stuffed animals) under the pillow by accident. We reached out to the owners and they shipped them to our home! My daughter was beyond happy to receive her animals (that went on their own adventure) when were back home. Thank you for saving the day!

Perfect location in the centre of the village and just a few steps from the harbour. Room was clean and spacious with a nice bathroom. Window opened up to create a small balcony. Plenty of free parking right outside the door. Outstanding breakfast delivered with a smile.

Stayed here in August during my holidays in Galway. We unfortunately arrived earlier than expected at around 2.30PM. There was no one in reception so we rang the phone number shown on the table. A male staff member answered and came down and snapped at us that we have arrived too early. He did not seem to understand what we were fully saying. He snapped at us saying "please just go away to a restaurant or something." I found his tone of voice unwelcoming As he turned around to go back into the corridor I heard him say very loudly "f**king hell" or something of the sort. We felt unwelcome, as well as disgusted and shocked. When we returned the woman who checked us in seemed more polite and carried our bags. The room was clean and spacious . The bed was comfortable and the windows had views of the sea. Breakfast was the same as you would get anywhere and that is okay. I would say the rashers were too greasy. Friendly breakfast waitresses but they seemed understaffed and stressed. The man at check out was much more friendlier. It is a shame one person can ruin what would have been an overall positive experience. I can't imagine returning.

Spent 5 nights there from 8th-13th September, and having spent a lifetime in hotels around the world, I can safely say this was one of my better experiences. The accommodation was spacious, and on a par, or better of many hotel rooms I have stayed in, in far better known locations. The staff are excellent and very helpful, and the breakfast options on offer could not be faulted - there are so many alternatives that all tastes will be catered for. The Irish breakfast is a large portion, freshly cooked, is very tasty and will set you up for the day. Kinvara itself is a great base for exploring the area - 1/2 hour to Galway city on one hand and the Burren on the other, so you’re spoiled for choice. There are also a good variety of pubs, serving food, and restaurants on offer to satisfy any taste, bur being located on the Atlantic coast, seafood is a primary source of nourishment. Kinvara Guesthouse is great value for money, and the best we can say is to confirm that we will be back. David & Lorna (North County Dublin)

Very big room and bed. Clean. Centre of the village with easy parking. Unfortunately our room faced onto the road and pub, not too noisy at night, but very noisy early in the morning with deliveries. Good windows kept the noise out and had blackout blinds. Slept much better once we discovered the fan as it was a warm room! Breakfast was basic, not many hot options for a vegetarian. But friendly staff and we would probably stay there again for the value and location.
