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.

Have been here on a few occasions now with family & have always received a warm welcome. The staff have been so accommodating especially to our kids & have even coloured with them when we have been in. The food has always been fantastic &...love the tapas offerings at the weekend. I’m not surprised by the Gastro Pub of the Year award outside their door. Keep up the good work & will definitely be in again.More

I recently visitrd Dan O'Connells for lunch with friends and to watch a match, with no reservation, we got a table very quickly, the service was fantastic and very quick despite how busy it was. The food is always on point and all the staff...are super friendly and accommodating and add to the great atmosphere of the pub. We had a lovely evening here and our waitress was very bubbly and helpful and we had a table with a great view of the street. I would highly recommend Dan O'Connells for a meal or a night out!!More

I would never go back to this place again . I been in lots of places this has to be the worst . Food was good . Staff useless. There were 3 men and a woman in it last Sunday evening when we went in...at approximately 7.30 they were full of drink and kept insulting my family and friends . I would avoid this placeMore

Avoid this bar We dined here after been seated on 18th of June 2023, the waitress said three times that chef had to be gone by 8pm, we said twice to her if it was an inconvenience we could leave . She said "No ,...it's fine" when a starter was ordered she rudely said"are you all having starters" desserts were definitely not going to be offered. Dirty cutlery, I took a photo of mine and a man shouted out " tell the fuc.in. one to stop taking photos of my cutlery" then the racial abuse started because they heard an English accent and what should be done to foreigners, I was followed to the toilet by two people and another member of our group was followed by three people out to the side door when he went for a vape , intimidation dies not cover it. A younger man started eyeing my 15 year old son, we left, that man stuck out his chest to my husband , that was ridiculous as my husband is a much bigger man so why this young man did this, who knows, this man came out onto street after we left, staring at us. A trip to the local garda station was our next stop, this behaviour is unacceptable by patrons of a bar. AVOID THIS PLACEMore

Despite the lovely food, the service was uncomfortable. Then regulars, clearly with a hatred for those of an English origin presented us with threatening behaviour vocal and physical, having us leave earlier than expected and making contact with the local Garda. So sad to see...that this agenda is still happening and that a pub supports it. I will never come here again and unlikely to visit what seems to be a lovely town. The Abbey, however, was a completely different experience - fully recommended this place.More

Myself and my partner were here a drink, we ordered a pint of Guinness and a pint of Coors. I got my pint of coors and my partner was waiting for his Guinness to settle. As a bar manager of 20 + years he knows...his stuff, his pint was full of bubbles and settled far too quickly. When he discretely asked what was assumed was either an owner or a manger to have a look at his pint, she rudely told him to ‘calm his hormones’ and walked away. The premises was freezing the staff here are ignorant. Won’t be coming back.More

Basic food they try to make really fancy and charge a fortune. Way to expensive for mediocre pub grub. Better off going elsewhere. Too dear. Not worth the money.

We arrived with no booking and were given seats in the corner to watch a football match. Staff were very friendly and service was excellent. We decided to have food, chicken wings, loaded fries and loaded nachos all great choices. Bouncer on the door was...very sound. Really enjoyed our night here.More
