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.

Best hotel in West clare, hotel is our favourite place to go. When we arrived for our easter escape the hotel team left easter eggs this was a fab little treat. The hotel is always spotlessly clean, staff are the best, and so friendly and always ready to serve you. The rooms are clean and comfortable and Fantastic views of the sea. We have also stayed in the red cliff logde which is part of the hotel, this cottages are fabulous, the hotel offers music at the weekends in the bar, great nights here Particularly when the band whispers are playing its a great night. Big shout out to Derek, David, John, Mary, Cathal, Aisling, Deridre, and Ann. Thank you for a fab stay at your hotel. Don't miss out folks, a treasure of a hotel.

The food was divine and the staff were fast and friendly. The restaurant was clean and we were seated within 5 minutes. I ordered the prawn stir fry and it was unreal. One of my friends ordered the vegetable curry and it looked amazing. I really enjoyed, I will definitely be returning!

Having spent another weekend at the Belbridge in Feb 2024 we would once again like to thank the staff for their kindness and consideration to both of us. Their helpfulness and professionalism leave the guest with a feeling of home away from home. To name but a few, Anne and her wonderful household team, Mary and the restaurant staff, Anna who looked after us so well at breakfast, Aisling, and finally David and Derek who always show us such a warm welcome.The Belbridge offers exceptional value,excellent cuisine and always service with a smile. Carol and Tom, Newry.

Overall what an experience from the moment we booked the date of our wedding right through to the days after it. Service, attention to detail through to the hospitality was second to none! Anything we wanted and needed on the day was of no hassle the staff. The whole team created an environment where all the guests were put an ease, the food plentiful and an overall homely feel. The wedding team co ordinated by John was amazing, Danielle who co ordinated decor was outstanding, Mary who over saw the dinner service on point and Cathal and Allison in reception were attentive and no issue proved a problem. All done with ease and a smile!Aisling in reservations co ordinated all aspects of the stay and again any requests  were met. Knowing that the wedding, the days before and after, were in safe hands meant we could enjoy the day with ease. I could not recommend more this venue for a wedding. Thank you a

We celebrated our wedding in the Bellbridge on the 8th December 2023 and we honestly cannot say enough good things about John, David and staff. From the moment we booked our date John was exceptional. He really made us feel like we were in our own little bubble and he managed the whole day for us. We hadn't a care in the world on the day so we got to mingle and enjoy the lovely tasty treats arranged for everyone on arrival. Everyone complimented the quality and quantity of the food served throughout the day. The could not get over the amount of food being served. The Bellbridge staff lead by John really know how to host a wedding.
