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 Brogue Inn is lovely little pub located in the town of Tralee. We were warmly greeted and immediately sat even though it was packed. Drinks were amazing and the conversation with the bartender was equally great. We had deep fried Brie, Salmon, Fish and...chips with Cole slaw. The food was fantastic served hot and delicious ! The staff was top notch as well. I highly recommend this restaurant if you find yourself in Tralee. It will be a an awesome experience.More

Very disappointed with the lunch. Got the roast beef dinner and was hoping that a waitperson would pass by so I could ask them to put the dinner in the microwave for a couple of minutes as dinner was not even luck warm. Taste was...there but stone cold and with a coffee attached to the meal which cost about €22.00 not sure I’ll take a chance again. DisappointedMore

I visited this establishment today with my grand-daughter. I ordered a simple chicken sandwich on white bread (untoasted), plus a cup of coffee (Americana). My grand-daughter ordered a chicken wrap and a small cup cake (no drink). I was charged €24.30 for this and when...I questioned the cost the cheeky female cashier said “you know that things have got a lot more expensive, my man”. What an ignorant patronising way to an address a man in his seventies !!! My advice to everybody is to steer clear of this rip-off establishment.More

Myself and my partner visited the brogue inn today. We ordered some lunch. A young new waitress was standing in the middle of the floor with a jug of gravy and as I was passing she turned around and spilt the jug of gravy all...over my arm and my clothes. She apologized to me and I walked over to my table. As I put the tray on the table the girl came back to me with a wet napkin and wiped my arm. No other staff came to my aid. No management came to me with any burn gels etc. My partner asked a member of staff what is their protocol regarding customers getting burnt, she said they have sprays/gels in the kitchen so my partner asked why weren't we offered spray gels etc and the girl didn't even know what we were on about. The girl in question obviously didn't inform a higher member of staff. We then sat outside and finished our coffee, then another member of staff came outside and said he just found out what happened he offered us a top up of coffee he said the girl in question was new and she was in the bathroom crying. Personally I think as a business this is a disgrace no medical aid was offered to me. No effort was made to get the bill for the inconvenience caused. My new clothes (t-shirt, jeans and new runners) all destroyed in gravy.More
