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.

Not my first time in this ridiculous outfit. Got dragged in again because it was one of the only places on MacCurtain street that had space (no surprise). Waiting staff were abundant, but not attentive, and I won't waste your time with the food. We...paid and left. How a joke shop like this still exists is a mysteryMore

Stumbled in here today for a light lunch. Staff really nice and welcoming and their specials of the day were really tasty. It’s a nice cosy bar. We spent the same as a franchise sandwich bar and the food was great- so much better value...for money.More

Just before writing this, I had a look at some of the poor reviews submitted and have to say I do not recognise this problem. One of our group was gluten intolerant and the waitress went to great pains to ensure he was served a...beautiful meal and really looked after him. The staff were super pleasant and it was certainly one of the best meals I have had in a while. The steak pie was huge and really tasty and the desserts were beautiful. I cannot recommend Gallaghers enough. Ignore the nay sayers and get yourselves there, you will love it!!More

We had a booking made and realised on arrival that it was for the wrong date. Aaron was extremely accommodating and helped us to get a table for the evening. We had 2 delicious main courses the beef pie and a beef burger ,we love...beef! Both were delicious and these were topped off with a classic espresso Martini! All the staff were very welcoming and helpful especially Aaron and it was his first night! We will be back for sure, first time visiting cork!More

Went to Gallaghers for a meal with my friend, waiter was rude upon arrival as the restaurant was empty and he was reluctant to let us in, bearing in mind this was a Thursday daytime meal. Chicken was dry and overcooked and the pie was...fatty and full of cartilage. Overall not a pleasant experience and would not be recommending to anyone visiting the cork area.More

Went here as was close to our hotel. Located across the river from the city center. We were there at an off peak hour 2:30 pm. Service was friendly and attentive. Both of our sandwiches were excellent. The beef sandwich with horseradish and the chicken...wrap were great. Tempted to go back today!More

Popped in for a quick lunch for first time visit following a recommendationfrom a friend. Welcomed on entry by friendly staff member who made instant positive impression. Ordered open crab and prawn sandwich and burger. When food arrived there was a minor issue with one...dish due to a misunderstanding with the order. While this was resolved quickly it was here that the professionalism, personality and expertise of the staff stood out. While waiting for the replacement dish to arrive , staff kept checking in to see if other dish ok and offered us drinks or soup while the replacement dish was being prepared. The replacement dish arrived promptly and again staff checked in to make sure all was OK. This was done in a friendly but professional way. It has been sometime since we were both so impressed with the level of service in a restaurant. So good that we had to share this positive experience. When paying the bill on departure the item that we had an issue with was not on the bill. Even though this was not expected or required, there was no way the staff would allow us pay for the dish. Well done to all in Gallaghers. Its great to see fab customer service alongside very tasty food. We will be back to eat in Gallaghers soon and in the meantime will tell all our friends about our positive experience.More

The menu here is a culinary masterpiece. The dishes were not only visually stunning but also bursting with flavor. The presentation was top-notch, and each bite was a delight. The wine list offered a fantastic variety to complement the meal. The sommelier's recommendations were spot...on. Service little bit slow :( 😞 I'll certainly be returning soon to explore more of their menu.More

A very nice pub in central cork offering a good selection of meals and beverages. The beer was well kept and our meals were quickly brought, hot and very tasty. Bar staff were helpful and chirpy.

While in Cork, we happened to stop in for dinner here and are happy we did. The Irish Stew pie was wonderful. So many layered flavors in the meat and veges. The pie crust was light and flaky. I wish we went back the next...day! Our waiter, Daniel, was helpful when I asked for a beer choice. He picked a delicious Franciscan Well IPA. A great looking pint glass too! We just need to get this draft in the States. We'll be back to Gallaghers next time we are in Cork.More

Superb food, cooked perfectly, great service. We were recommended the soup by a local store. I’ve never had a bowl of soup that tasted so good. We had great service and it had a fab atmosphere. So good we came back for dinner that evening...and the sea bass was literally the best I’ve ever tasted.More

we were on a day tour to Blarney Castle. The tour ended in Cork. Eating at Gallaghers was really all that we had time to do. But my meat pie was excellent. Service was friendly.
