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 of our service engineers stayed at the Chester Beatty Inn last night. He said he couldn't praise this place enough! The staff were very friendly and efficient. The breakfast was very generous and tasty. The next time our workers have work in the area,...no doubt The Chester Beatty Inn will be our top preference! From Avril Mulcahy, Ireland Waste Water.More

We stayed a couple of nights here at the end of a month long Ireland trip. Staff were wonderful, friendly , helpful and efficient without exception. Our room was lovely, clean and super comfy bed. Meals were great - highly recommend prawn curry, apple pie...and beef and Guinness pie. Run by a gorgeous incredibly friendly family all with a great sense of humour. Loved our stay. ThanksMore

We had to leave early in the morning and Heather made sure we had a to-go breakfast delivered to...our room before we checked out. Highly recommend.More

Went there last Saturday, had been there a few times before and had another lovely breakfast. Very friendly staff and on the ball with everything. However I was really surprised that someone who I assume was the owners wife was serving customers wearing a pair...of running shorts, skimpy top and a cap! It looked totally out of place and very unprofessional. The other staff were dressed smartly in uniforms. I found it very off putting to be honest and had she served our table I would have said something to her.More

Without doubt one of the cleanest, friendliest hotels I’ve ever had the pleasure to stay in. The room was just perfect, so comfortable so clean, beautifully furnished. Jack who checked us in was very friendly, very polite and knowledgeable. Told us everything we needed to...know about dinner and breakfast times. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here.

We decided to stop in for dinner since we stayed at the inn itself and found amazing service and quality food. I would totally reccomend the steak and Guinness pie and sticky toffee pudding. The pie has great flavor and nice flaky top. I would...also recommend the mash potatoes on the side for creamy add on. And the sticky toffee pudding is heavenly 😍More
