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.

I had the pleasure of eating here and I found everything to be top class. Any unusual request I gave the staff was dealt with immediately. Service food and location exceeded my expectations.

Food was delicious. The restaurant was cosy and very clean. The service wasn’t the best - waitress got out ordered mixed up a few times and we’re waiting for drinks for 20 minutes at one stage. Awkward way of paying too with regards to Covid.

Had a lovely meal here as usual and have to say staff are genuinely warm and welcoming ( note to Ballyseede Castle on how to make guests feel genuinely welcome as opposed to going through the motions ) The food and service always superb. A...special mention about the covid precautions. The only restaurant we have seen that disposes of the paper menus and cleans the chairs as well as tables. Well done to everyone here a d keep up great serviceMore

Thank you to all in O' Donnells Bar & Restaurant for my daughter's christening yesterday. The food was fantastic, the staff were so helpful and made us feel at ease even during these difficult times. Their use of space with regard to social distancing was...was perfectfor our intimate gathering. Thank you. We will be back. I highly recommend it as a venue for a family gathering.More

Staying in Tralee and decided to find a venue the locals use, we found a gem here. Called on the off chance on the first night without booking lucky enough there were tables available. I had the fish and my wife the chicken burger and...they both were magnificent. On our second day we were on the Ring of Kerry and rather than looking for somewhere to eat there we made the decision to head back and revisit as the previous evening had been so good. The only disappointment is that it's going to be another 8 hour round trip to visit again, but we know where to visit during our next trip. Very good and friendly staff.More

Pint of Guinness is lovely as well (if that's your thing!). Even with Covid restrictions it...is still lovely just have to remember to ring ahead!! Keep up the good work guys 😊More

16 of us and a baby ventured in to this very accomadating restaurant in the heart of Tralee. We were swiftly seated and ice cold juice placed on our tables. Our server was a lovely man named Ross who bended over backwards to meet every...need of our very demanding party... The food was delicious beautifully presented and tasted as nice. Portions were good and prices were very reasonable. O Donnells is well worth the visitMore
