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.

Visited three times whilst staying in Roundwood, for a drink, for a meal and to listen to the Sunday afternoon music and was made to feel so welcome. The staff were amazing, enjoyed the food and loved the band. Keep up what you're doing all...as you left our family with lovely memories.More

Stopped in here after a long day hiking glendalough with my family, immediately was welcomed by Jannette one of the co-owners, she was friendly and welcoming, and when taking our order had no issue with the dietary requests of the kids, she kindly informed me...that the chicken burger was out of stock for the youngest but when i asked if we could get a bun with chicken tenders to make one she was more than delighted to oblige, she chatted with me everytime i went to get a drink at the bar, and was friendly and witty, the food was absolutely fantastic, i had the badboy burger which was better than any burger ive had in Dublin at specialist restaurants that claim to have the best, my partner had the hake which was beautifully beer battered, and the eldest had a vegetarian option of their Vartry special (no tenders and an extra mushroom and onion ring), all meals came with a gorgeous side salad & healthy dollop of coleslaw, the meal was finished off with a divine bit of Rhubarb Crumble. Everything tasted fresh and both kids said it was their favourite food they've had and already are asking when we can go back.More

Myself and the missus went here for food today as we were on the way up to Glendalough. We both went for the roast of the day which was chicken. We both got a glass of coke. The chicken came with peas, carrots, gravy and...mashed potato. The food was nice and the barman was funny. Food was reasonably priced aswell.More

I wasn't really expecting a lot from the vegetarian food but chose the vegan 'special' option instead of the Margerita pizza which would have been frozen. It was a good effort but wasn't great - ate all my chips though!

We had a great Saturday night family get together for food and drink celebrating a family birthday which turned into a very good night indeed. The service was prompt and friendly and the food was excellent too. The bar staff were on hand and chatted...away and the clientele were very friendly too. All in all a terrific night where we were treated well abd would heartily recommend this place.More

I popped in as I saw there was a music night one. It reminded me of a ceilidh with more foot and heel malarky. The older bunch were dancing all night and it was a very friendly atmosphere. Unfortunately I was led astray by a...visiting Ukulele band and ended up with far too many guiness and Paddys leading to a very late breakfast the next day and a thumping head hahaMore

On the way to Avoca we stopped off at Vartry which is a nice quite picturesque village in Wicklow. The pub claims to be the highest in Ireland see pictures but whatever the staff were friendly and the cold drinks were cold it satisfied us.

We visited Vartry House for a late lunch after a hike in the hills around Lough Dann. There is a nice and sunny outside seating area. The staff are very friendly. We all ordered steak from the menu, it was cooked to perfection as were...the accompaniments. Will go there again in the future.More

The bar is nice, clean and comfortable. We 2 adults 2 kids went for Sunday dinner. We ordered 2 adult and a small toddler roast beef dinner and a pepperoni pizza (thinking just pepperoni as nothing else was stated to be on it) the roast...dinner: the 2 thin slices of beef were very dry, the veg was from a frozen bag of mixed garden peas and corn, the mash was nice but cold. The pepperoni pizza also had peppers (loads of peppers) and tomatoes. The manger asked if everything was OK and we said we are dissatisfied with it and also said about the pizza but he was offering no alternative. In the end we left out meal, paid €45 (he charged for a tiny toddler dinner) and went to the coach house which is a short was away and had a delicious mealMore

The staff are lovely. The atmosphere is very nice. It is a real irish pub for a quiet drink and bite to eat. The pizzas are gorgeous. Also there's an off licence with a good range of take aways. It's a great place to meet...and have a chat.More
