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.

The Tankard does it all- in the week around our wedding in may 2022, we had a gorgeous dinner with family the night before the wedding, and then for the afters of our wedding the tankard did an amazing BBQ for 120 of our guests....Everyone was so impressed with the food, service, and stunning views. The outdoor area is a hidden gem in kerry!More

We have eaten twice here over the last 6 weeks. Once as a couple and once as a party of 20 at a family christening. Firstly the covid precautions are excellent. The outside area is a delight overlooking the bay with the moody mountains behind....The table service is very good with the servers welcoming and attentive. The standard of seafood is excellent, beautifully cooked and great value for money. My only gripe is the disabled toilet didn't lock on our first visit, nor did it work on our second 3 weeks later. But if you are going there for the food, service and view you will be happyMore
