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.

Glynsk House, in Glynsk on the Wild Atlantic Way near Carna in Connemara, has been under new management for the past 18 months and has gone from strength to strength. The food is great and the service is efficient and friendly. And as it's on...the coast, you might be looking for fish on the menu and you won't be disappointed. All in all, well worth a detour. Open 7 days a week in summer but only at weekends in winter.More

We have been going here for years, whenever we go to Connemara . It is such a welcoming friendly place , wonderful staff and the food has always been excellent. And the location and views are magical . A trip to Connemara wouldn’t be complete...for us without a meal here .More

Just had a fantastic meal at Glynsk House. The food was well prepared, the portions were large and the staff were very attentive. Excellent value in a nice setting. It is a bit out of the way but worth the drive and the scenery to...get there is an added bonus. I highly recommend a visit.More

Very nice dinner in a friendly environment. The creamy vegetable soup was excellent as was the prawns and vegetable stir fry. A great place to experience the local flavor. Excellent service. Best place in the Carna area for dinner.

Called in on a sunny Autumn Sunday afternoon for some food. We were immediately greeted by a pleasant young barman who immediately made us feel welcome & directed us to a nice window table overlooking the lovely rugged moorland settling into the golden brown autumnal...vegetation. Without delay or rushed in any way our orders were taken & the proprietor's came to our table to say hello as indeed they did with all other tables, Our food consisted of seafood chowder, duck & a stir fry. We both certainly enjoyed the food & as I wasn't driving mine was washed down with a lovely creamy pint of Guinness. I look forward to a return visit.More

Our charity cycle group stopped for lunch in Glynsk House on our Wild Atlantic Way cycle. We were close to 100 people, arriving in split groups but nothing was too much for Mary and team. They were super welcoming with loads of tasty hot food...to get our group fed & back on the road. They were a pleasure to deal with from booking to payment and all our cyclists were super positive about their experience in our short but enjoyable stop. From Mary herself, to all the staff we had the pleasure in dealing with they were extremely friendly & accommodating. Thank you Mary & team!More

Had a spectacular lunch today with my fiancé. We had the chicken fillet burger and the tuna melt off of the lunch menu, both very tasty. Thank you to the lovely young waitress who looked after us at all times and provided us with directions...to some beautiful local beaches. Lovely selection of items also available in the craft shop. We can’t wait to return on our next visit to Ireland.More

Staying at Glinsce (Glynsk) on the west coast of County Galway we visited this restaurant twice. Once as a couple and then for a family gathering of 6 adults and 4 children (4yrs to 12yrs) On both occasions the welcome, the service and the food...were all excellent. Our first visit as a couple taught us that the meals were big (fish chowder followed by main of lemon sole) and so on the second visit we opted for a main course only. My sizzling plate was big in size and flavour, though we did then succumb to the desserts which were equally good Strongly recommend if you are in this area. The owner and staff make you feel very welcome and the food is excellent.More
