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.

Two of my coworkers and I attended on a work trip. It was recommended to us by someone at the front desk and they weren't wrong about it. I had the roast of the day. It came with root vegetables and 2-3 kinds of potatoes....Great pints of Guinness, too. You can't go wrong with this place.More

Disappointed. Serve friends first. Leave customer waiting to come out from the bar to chat friends. Full pub, one guy actually working.

I usually love the celt but last week I went with friends and the staffs approch when asking people to leave is extremly dissapointing. When asked to leave they allowed half the pub to stay and when i questioned this i was shouted at by...the bar man saying you dont spend 5 grand in here a year why would I let you stay. I have no issue being asked to leave as it was closing time but the way i was spoken to was unacceptable.More

We chanced upon this pub and loved it. Great atmosphere, with both tourists and locals (in December) and tons of ephemera (flags, posters, street signs, etc.). The space is quite large with tons of seating in the back. The true star was the music. We...heard Popcorn Behaviour (a guitarist and accordion player) and they were fantastic! By the end of the night, the crowd was singing and dancing and we all had a great time. If you want a CD of the music, be sure to bring cash -- a great memento/gift for just 10 Euros.More

This is a great pub for an extremely casual hang. Probably not a olace to bring Granny, but if you have a lively crew, this is a great spot. The food was great, the staff behind the front bar were wonderful, minus one ponty tailed...young man with glasses. He seemed to enjoy giving customers a difficult time, and make fun of them….not someone I would go back to frequent. But, that said, everyone else was fantastic, outgoing and friendly.More

We’ve visited Dublin twice in the last 3 years, staying at the same hotel just around the corner both times. Multiple visits to the Celt have been the highlights of both trips! Cozy, great Irish music (often live), and fantastic traditional Irish food. It’s also...astonishingly huge, with rooms opening onto even more rooms and an entire second bar. The staff we’ve encountered have all been efficient and very personable.More

The family and I went to the Celt to experience an Irish local pub, we weren’t not disappointed. The service was stellar and the atmosphere was of an authentic pub that reflects true culture,We decided on ordering an idealistic Irish dish ,“Irish stew. ” I...only have only three letters to describe it ….”OMG”!!!! Spectacular. You can taste the fresh ingredients with heart and soul in every mouthful. A must try in Dublin. I say no more judge for yourself.More

So we left as we were gitting kicked off our table and the place full at that stage. Won't be backMore

A coworker brought me there for dinner. I is a nice, neighborhood pub. It is far from anything fancy, but that’s the point anyhow. Our service was top notch. Despite being busy, they kept checking on our drinks, and just overall checking in. The food...was amazing. At least mine was. I went with the beef & Guinness stew. It was hands down the best stew I have had in a very long time. I’d o back in a heartbeat.More

We never booked in advance when we visited for supper or drinks. We stopped in multiple times. Although it may look full with no room when you walk in, the place is actually massive. There are a few different seating areas... More
