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 expected excellence based on the reviews, and we were very disappointed. We had the shrimp, the Irish stew, and the chicken parm, and none of it was very good except for the chips. Maybe you’re supposed to go to drink and not eat. ?

Excellent fish and chips! The gentleman who took our drink order told me enough about their various cider options that I had a pretty good idea what to order (a Bulmer's, great choice). My teens both loved their meals as well.

Highly recommend a night at this bar. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the meals (lasagne and Irish stew) were delicious. The bonus was the great Irish music - band was fantastic (flute, piano accordion, and guitar) and fun, interacting with the visitors at...the bar. Great rendition of 'Whiskey in the Jar'. We had a great night in Killarney - best pub we've visited on our Ireland journey.More

We tried this restaurant and out of the 3 of us, none liked it. Chowder was like a flavorless salty water with some fish. I love chowder & seafood in general, but this was really awful. Very small portion too which I wouldn’t have minded...if it was nice. Chips were cold, The panini was like it had been reheated from frozen and the vegetable soup was like a packet soup. My advice is have a drink here maybe or eat somewhere else.More
