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.

I had told my friend how lovely Jolly Boys is, and she was not disappointed! The staff were so friendly and attentive, plus we loved the decor. The posters on the wall sparked some great conversation between us too. We each had a pizza, margharita...and packing heat, with a shared order of the parmesan and rosemary fries. The bases are lovely and the toppings very tasty! The atmosphere is really friendly and welcoming, perfect for a casual date night, family dinner or a catch up between friends!More

Seriously, put some effort into (re)training your staff. Ate there on 13/9/22…barely a greeting from server, one of the kids spilled their drink over me & onto the floor. Waitress barely noticed, said she bring some serviettes, brought 3, I recommended she bring the mop...as it had started to leak across the floor. Didn’t offer to replace the drink so we sent the kid up to ask for a replacement. Took forever. Floor was dirty, menus were dirty, table was dirty, table opposite us left & the table got a tokenistic wipe…staff idling around looking at each other. Food was lovely as usual…waitress had to be prompted for goodbye despite being left a decent tip. It’s the little things that make a difference. I like this place & hope it’s not regressing. Staff don’t seem to care. ShameMore

Would highly recommend this delivery service to all staying at Center Parcs, the quality of food at Center Parcs is low and the only fault we could find with the place so we were thrilled to hear about this takeaway from our friends who had...stayed previously. We'll be recommending to all and will definitely revisit. Thanks Jolly Boys, the food was fab.More

I was randomly passing through Ballymahon an decided to stop for food. I saw this place and it was the obvious choice. love seeing these kind of places pop up around the country; proper joints that look good on the outside; cool vibes inside *a...place that clearly is making an effort. On top of this they ard clearly trying to support local produce in the ingredients they use. This place would stand up to most if not all burger and pizza joints in any large town or city in Ireland. I got the Marog Mór; a double burger with smoked bacon, monterrey Jack and black pudding. All the ingredients were very good. I'd probably not go with black pud in a burger again because I think they kinda cancel each other out, the pudding and the beef, that is. Don't get me wrong, it was a very solid burger. The homemade chips were great. The two waitresses were lovely. Unlikely to be back in Ballymahon anytime soon but will definitely check out their place at Athlone. Well done to whoever set it up👍More

I ate at Jolly Boys a few weeks ago when visiting family in Ireland. Had some terrific wings and pizza, and a few local pints from Wide Street Brewery down the road. My daughter and family really enjoyed it too. Service was friendly and prompt....We liked it so much we ordered takeaway a few days later!More

We discovered this restaurant while staying close by in centre parcs. We arrived with no booking on what looked like to be a very busy Wednesday evening. We were accommodated by the lovely Nina. There was no tables in the restaurant but we were seated...in their extensive back garden area. The kids were in their element with the football pitch in the back garden. Drinks were served promptly from the other door bar. Cocktails and local beer that we were told was brewed in Ballymahon. We ordered a mixture of pizzas and burgers. Pizzas were fantastic. Proper Neapolitan style. The burgers were also fantastic. You will not leave here hungry! So it's five stars from us for our fantastic experience. A must try if you are in the area.More

Went here as I stopped by looking for something small to eat but as I seen the menu I couldn’t help but not try a small bit of everything…. One day I will. Got a howya Ceasar, the perfect fluffy crust combined with the perfect...level of charred stonebaked base. Smoke pancetta fries were a surprise to my eyes portion size was massive and I could just about finish it. Decor was beautiful, the walls were filed with such cool lil posters ranging in looks. Definitely will be back sometime soonMore

I called into jolly boys by chance on way home and I’m so glad I did! Food was gorgeous, I had breakfast and it was so fresh and tasty. My little boy gave the scrambled egg and toast the thumbs up! The staff were amazing...and paid such lovely attention to my son. We both loved it! Thank u so much Nina and staff for a wonderful dining experience!More

Placed an order online and paid, with collection due 40 minutes later. Arrived at the appointed time to be told that there was no food for me because the kitchen had cancelled my order because they were extremely busy and that I should have received...an email telling me this (there was no email). There were no guests dining in the restaurant at this time. Front of house staff told me they'd check again with the kitchen if they could now 'accept' my order through, to which I agreed. I waited in the restaurant as some customers came and went. After a further 45 minutes waiting I asked the same girl if I could expect my food anytime soon, she went and checked with the kitchen and came back to tell me that one of the items I had ordered was unavailable and would I like to order something else? At this stage I had had enough and asked to take whatever was ready and leave it at that. Overall really poor form from Jolly Boys. No communication, no management presence, no apologies. I had three hungry kids waiting in the car for an hour. Won't be returning.More

I’ve been to Jolly Boys Ballymahon twice in the last month with groups of friends the food both times and the service from Lucy was incredible… naturally i thought it would be a great place for date night on Sunday as my partner had never...been and is sick of me saying how nice it is! So we drove the 30 minutes and Sunday was a disaster with over 35 minute wait to get our starter and no communication or service from any of the staff the girls were standing behind the till chatting. They seemed to be out of stock on a lot especially drink. The table beside me order had not been taken and they had been there as long as us and asked me could I help them get service as they were being completely ignored. When our mains arrived it was cold but once again couldn’t get attention of any of the staff … at this point my partner was not at all impressed and wanted to leave. Luckily the lovely waitress Lucy had come in and started to solve everyone’s problems making us all feel a bit more at ease and her bubbly personality and attention to her customers definitely calmed everyone’s mood.More

Had some take aways from here before which were mediocre then sat down a few weeks ago in the restaurant for food. Very slow service despite being empty. Not cheap either considering portion size. A lot of room for improvement.

We recently ordered delivery to CenterParcs and made a note on our order regarding an allergen. We wanted to be sure so we called after we placed our order online. Pizzas were covered in the no-no ingredient. We had to toss them out as a...result. We were also missing an item from our order. When we rang to advise of the error, no correction was made. Not even an apology. They did not credit us for the items we could not eat nor did they refund the MISSING items. Just awful. To make matters worse, the items that could be consumed were cold and tasted like cardboard. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!More

We really enjoyed our meal here. The food was excellent and servings were large. Great value. The staff were really friendly and very efficient. There’s a large play area out the back of the restaurant and the kids could run around there, which meant we...could eat in peace when they were finished! We will definitely be back. It was recommended to us, it’s less than 5 minute drive from Centreparcs, so very handy to know about!More
