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.

Everyone knows that Quinlans means great quality at a reasonable price, but this restaurant was special. I've eaten at other Quinlans because I'm an admitted seafood fan. But here the salmon was especially tasty and the crab claws were also delicious, the sauce had just...enough cream to get a good flavor but not too much to feel greasy. The manager and waiters paid a lot of attention to us to make sure everything was perfect. I have to thank Rocio (I hope I write it well), the waitress. She took care of my wife who is dairy intolerant and she recommended we order the claws with sauce on the side, so my wife could eat them too. Thanks for the services guys, we really enjoyed the Valentine's dinner.More

Steaming hot fish and chips fried perfectly. Light batter that was just right fir this large piece of cod. All fish fresh daily from local fishing boats! A salad can be ordered rather than the mushy peas. Also, pan sautéed fish - plaice and other...types available - can be ordered as well. Few tables inside and a few outdoors but if rain no protection. We went early in the evening so no problem. Non stop business with take aways being collected.More

We were looking for something quick to eat before heading back to Dublin. We weren't interested in sitting down in a restaurant so we resigned ourselves to grabbing something in a take-away. We noticed Quinlan's Seafood Bar. We presumed that it was a typical 'chipper'...but decided to go in anyway. We both had hake and chips. It was obvious that the fish was fresh and it tasted delicious! The chips were equally as good. There was a list of trawler names on the wall, their owner details, the dates they were active and the types of seafood they were supplying To Quinlan's. We noticed that other customers who were coming into Quinlan's were asking for different types of fish and were frequently being told "I'm afraid that's all gone" (after all, it was late in the day) - a sure sign that the produce was fresh. I am looking forward to my next visit to Tralee, and to Quinlan's!More
