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.

Went to visit Brogans on recommendation from a friend from Ennis. We are big foodies and staying in Clare for the bank holiday weekend at Halloween. Our table was two parents two kids. Us being real foodies decided to look up the menu prior to...visiting. My partners a chef and we love trying new places.... We went on the bank holiday Monday. We were greeted at the door by a lovely young lady. Place was busy, we were given a seat and she made sure we were happy with the allocation. Ordered drinks that came very quickly and the kids too. I looked at the menu and it was just lunch(that had any amount of beautiful choice) but I had wanted to try the ribs after seeing so many photos! A lovely blonde waitress came to take my order, I explained this to her and she was so nice,said she would ask the chef could he do them...and he did!!! I had mussels to start, I'd never usually order this but did for a change. They were amazing. So soft and full of flavor. My partner had wings-wow!!! They were gorgeous. Kids had pasta and gougons. Even kids meals were fab. Not to MY ribs. Only way to describe them was mouth watering. They fell off the bone. With just the perfect amount of seasoning and flavor. Everything that came with them was just perfect. My partner had the burger with bacon and cheese. Even the bacon was cooked to perfection so crispy and tasty. There is nothing what so ever I could say to fault the place. In actual fact we decided we will take a road trip from Galway to Ennis another weekend just to dine here again. Ever be in a restaurant and you can decide what to eat,cause you see everything the waiter/waitress is bringing out and everything looks fab?!! Brogans is like that! Hats off to the staff and the kind chef who accomadated my craving haha. Honestly guys, people are very quick to run a place down. This place has to be commended. Will definitely be back! And the bill was very decently priced for all we got :)More

Several restaurants in town had similar menu choices, but the service at Brogan’s was the best since we have been in Ireland. Ellen the waitress was so kind and accommodating, we had a party member with a severe carrot allergy, the chef adjusted the dish...and side items and it was amazing!!! Oh, I finally got real brown bread!!!More

Great food, great service and great staff, especially Ellen. Brogans is extremely popular and it's easy to see why. The staff are excellent, turnover of tables takes about 3 minutes. They are on top of their game and it's easy to see why.

Not our first time returning to this well know establishment. Ellen and her colleagues make you feel very welcome and valued. Portions are very generous and the menu offers fair selection.

I went in to brogans to organise just a very little surprise for my daughter. I did not get any of the names of the staff that worked on September the 1st evening. The staff were so helpful and they bent over for me to...make sure the surprise was pulled off. The food was just fabulous the staff came out with candles on my daughters dessert and I know this is done in most restaurants but I have to say the way we were treated and looked after I was overwhelmed. I do go to brogans the odd time but I think I will be going in there more often now. Fantastic staff working in brogans with great food well done and thanks a million my daughter came away with the biggest smile on her face 😀More

Came to Ennis with friends and was recommended Brogans. Our food arrived surprisingly fast, I had a burger and it was like a hockey puck, a dog would have broken it's tooth try to eat this thing! Totally overcooked and sent it back, my friends...had the catch of the day and a carbonara, the fish was dry and smothered in a cream sauce that was tasteless and watery, the mash was salty and the vegetables swimming in butter. We all tried the carbonara and agreed that surely a chef did not cook this meal. To make matters worse was the price!! Inner city prices for absolute crap, won't be coming back anytime soon. If your a foodie avoid Brogans.More

Visited Brogans bar with my family for dinner, good very good and service was excellent. The music was nice , three musicians playing traditional Irish songs, however they seemed to chat together a lot between songs with did ruin the atmosphere a little ! But...still 5 star and hope to return !More

I had a late lunch at Brogan's. I got the fish special which was a broiled hake fillet w/ mashed potatoes, butternut squash and a broccoli rabe sauté. It had a very thick cream sauce. I am not a huge fan of really thick cream...sauces, but despite that, the meal was fine. I'd probably try a different meal if I were to go there again. They do have a menu of many options so surely you will find something for everyone. I did get the brownie for dessert and that was so delicious. It came w/ a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Very chocolatey and yummy. The servers were very kind. The atmosphere was nice and cozy.More

Lovely food, I had the roast rib beef and my wife had the burger. food was excellent including starter and sweet. staff very friendly. only issue I had was when I asked for a knife to butter my bread with the starter it took a...second time of asking to get one, my wife also asked for a glass of water after her meal and again had to ask a second time. other than that I couldn't fault the food or staff.More

Took our Australian relatives into Ennis to show them some of the great pubs that are in Ennis. One of the pubs was Brogans. We walked in and turned left and walked to the other end of the bar as we had planned to sit...at that end of the pub. Place was empty so seats weren't a problem One barman was behind the bar not serving anyone and was standing at the opposite end to us. I asked him for a pint of Heineken and was just about to order the rest of our drinks when he said to me "you can walk up to me and order". Lazy barman with no clue how to make customers feel welcome. We should have left there and then but we walked up to him and ordered our drinks and sat outside. About half an hour later he left with his big skateboard under his arm. The place was empty. Not surprised when you have staff like that "working" behind the bar and instructing customers to come to him. Will never drink or bring friends or relatives to Brogans ever again.More
