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.

Had lunch here ordered the haddock goujons. After a long delay received 3 goujons on the plate each the size of my finger and believe me my fingers are small. They were breaded needed a magnify glass to see the fish. Went outside after I...ate and crossed the road to buy a packet of crisps at least there was potato in those.More

Hotel restaurants don’t usually Float my Boat, but The Kitchen at The Glasshouse is definitely an exception! And Floating is very much the feeling- set right on the Garavogue river- Sligo’s short but scenic river which flows from Lough Gil, The Kitchen has a wonderful...setting- right in the centre of town with the archways of Hyde Bridge visible up- river and the resident swan colony floating down- river. I’ve eaten here twice recently- once with a group of 12 because it was recommended as a spacious and accessible venue for a mixed group ….. it was so good that I returned last night with some family members. High ceilings; a glass wall onto the river; smiling staff and tables very far apart….. a great first impression… Dinner menu reads beautifully- a nice mix of starters, mains and desserts with tea and coffee for €40. The menu is creative and provides enough variety but without offering an exhaustive list where one suspects the quality may be compromised by the quantity! Presentation was very good- colourful and creative without being “ over Cheffy” and pretentious. Flavours were distinct and subtle , as required- often a balance that is difficult to achieve. Just one tip- ask them to cook the Lamb Rack as minimally as they can , which is medium. Staff were attentive and friendly- those we spoke to had worked for several years at the Hotel- always a good sign! Head Chef is an award winning Chef and his influence is very evident. In conclusion- a lovely restaurant in a super location serving great food at a fair price- punching way above the usual Hotel restaurant weight .More

Terrine, though well presented, was not to my taste. The mains of lamb rack and gnocchi were both very good and enjoyable. The staff were excellent and professional. The restaurant is comfortable and well appointed. Recommended

I have been there for lunch. Location is great, especially during good weather days. Table service has greatly improved. However, food is poor. I had lasagne. Leaving aside the fact that they were served with chips and a little salad (which by the way should...be dressed or at least dressing should be provided. When I asked for it, I could see from the face of the waiter that it was an unusual request), but more importantly: lasagne is not a lump of mince meat with a fragment of pasta sheet drown in it and topped with some melted cheese! Lasagne is a fine balance between mince meat, pasta sheet and white sauce (well, a proper chef should use béchamel, but that is probably too much to ask for). Add to that an espresso which had at the same time the taste of burnt coffee powder and water at the same time, served in a cup with a good bit of the coffee sitting on the saucer. I do not elaborate on the high price charged for such concoction, to avoid adding further pain. AvoidMore

Ate in Kitchen restaurant both nights and in the baron the second day of our two night stay. I’ll review the Glasshouse Hotel separately.First night Himself had Cockles and prawns for starter , followed by lamb and a Gaelic coffee. I had the nectarine salad...and steak followed by the chocolate and salted caramel E thing. Tonight he had curried carrot&parsnip soup- which i had earlier in the day with soda bread- gorgeous-followed by the lamb. I had nectarine salad- again- and chicken followed by Orange Cointreau creme. We were diligently attended by the charming and efficient Bogdan on both nights, who could not have done more to ensure our comfort and satisfaction. The food truly is of an extremely high standard, both in terms of quality and presentation. We would heartily recommend eating here, both for evening and daytime dining. The staff are friendly and helpful across the board, even when under pressure. Will definitely returnMore

We booked dinner through the receptionist in the hotel. We thought the reservation was going to be for the bar but it was actually in for the restaurant (definitely double check which you are booking for) but very glad now that we dined in the...restaurant. Food was delicious and service was great - staff were friendly and attentive. Adrian (white shirt, reddish hair) was super - really enthusiastic and friendly and a very hard worker. The restaurant itself is very big and open, some relaxing music would have been a nice touch. Would definitely recommend dining here.More

We ate here on a quiet Tuesday evening. The menu was nice and varied. I had the goats cheese to start. It was tasty but the grapefruit coulis was a little bit too overpowering. I had the lamb for mains. This was delicious... It came...with a lovely sauce and roast onion. The veg was very tasty too. My partner had the pork and chicken ballentine which was tasty but I don't know if the hoisin sauce was the right accompaniment. He then had the steak which was a bit rarer than the medium rare he had ordered but it was delicious. We opted for calypso coffee for dessert as we were too full for more food! All in all I would eat here again!More
