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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a barman, a young ginger lad and he was the best man for a chat and in all my years of drinking he poured the best pint I’ve ever seen. Definitely will be back!

Kieran delivers memorable craft beers and outrageous fun in an authentic Irish pub. You'll find friendly people, a welcoming peat fire, and an Irish Setter who'll steal your heart (if Kieran doesn't get it first).

Rude owner who sent us packing at 11.03 despite a full house indoors and outdoors. Plenty bad language and agression on display here too. The only blip in our fabulous visit to this lovely village in the heart of the wonderful Slieve Blooms. Will definitely...spend our time in Giltraps Pub next time - staff much friendlier, courteous and well mannered there.More

The pub does good beer, with (from what I remember is a friendly atmosphere). However this time around I inquired about getting a table or seat and was immediately told 'out out out' because i did not have a booking, and the door was slammed...shut behind me. Whilst i appreciate that we must all abide by the rules (which the pub was certainly not doing, because people were congregating in masses inside, but whatever - I was just looking for a table by myself to have a quiet drink), being unpleasant to potential customers is not a good sign.More

We first went on sunday night, it was very lively and full as it was game day. Irish take their games seriously. Drinks were good and reasonably priced. The owner took a picture with us, everyone so friendly, played pool with the locals. Fun!!

We ventured into town from our country stay only to find everything was closed, Keirin opened up early for us and was more then welcoming. He showed us around the bar, gave us some history, and let us try his amazing home brews. He has...a full set up in house and each one is more amazing then the last. With choices of an IPA, a Red Ale and a Stout that you could have as a meal. It really was quite a treat for us to get to experience such a classic Irish bar with Irish hospitality.More

Called into the Slieve Bloom on Friday while staying in the lovely village of Kinnitty. Kieran, the landlord was very friendly and offered us some of his top class craft ales to try (brewed on the premises). The pub and bar staff were great. A...real taste of traditional Ireland. What’s not to like.More

Myself and my other half stopped in here again last Sunday evening to be greeted with a roaring fire and excellent tunes. Happy to see that things have not changed in the establishment if not better. The owner, Kieran again was his charming self and...could not have been anymore hospitable. A wonderful experience overall and will definitely return.More
