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.

We ordered the scampi (€20) and checked wings (€10). The scampi was very average and came with limp chips and a bitter lettuce salad. The chicken wings were extremely bland, couldn't finish them. Nice atmosphere but a there are a couple of surly staff however....Will not be back.More

Had drinks and dinner in the Horse Shoe bar over the last few day. Top class over all. Friendly service, good food and friendly staff. Spotlessly clean in every area. Mags, the lady behind the bar is so efficient and so informative about Listowel as...to what's happening elsewhere in the town and not afraid to promote it. We will definitely be back to Listowel and the Horse Shoe bar again.It's a lovely town! Top class.More

Had grilled hake and it was over done and didn’t taste fresh just came with chips On the way to the toilets had a look at other people’s food and looked pretty grim to be fair. Service was good though.

Myself and my husband ordered a takeaway of 'Roast of the day' and chicken mardi gras which is described on the menu as 'marinated chicken breast on a sizzling plate with rice and fries'. I appreciate you cannot have a sizzling plate with a take...away but the slop I got was quite awful. Bits of chicken with rice, courgettes and peppers in a slimy sauce. The roast of the day? If that was roasted that day in that bar, I would be shocked! never again, and they are quite costly also...More

Myself and my husband stayed in behans on the 27th of Oct for 1 night .It was a last minute booking and we were not disappointed. Met Diarmuid on arrival and what a gent he was .Nothing was any trouble for him .He showed us...to our room which was warm ,modern and spotless .Really lovely room .We went to the bar and had a drink and came back later for dinner which was served efficiently and with a warm welcome and chat .We had breakfast the following morning which was served by diarmuid and was really nice .Would highly recommend behans and diarmuid is a credit to the family business and should be incredibly proud of this wonderful place. Cannot wait to go back . Food was really tasty and very reasonable with a lot of choice .More

We spent three nights in Listowel at the (excellent) Listowel Arms and after the first meal in the Horseshoe we found ourselves unable to imagine eating anywhere else. Three nights on the bounce we were amazingly well looked after by the wonderful and charming and...welcoming Mags and her lovely team. The food was on the money - particularly incredible Irish stew and bacon and cabbage - drinks perfect, and general vibes just unimprovable. Go go go.More

My new favourite restaurant in the area. We couldn’t get a table in Ballybunion so decided to try The Horseshoe bar in nearby Listowel. We rang ahead and booked a table and we are so glad that we did. The decor, the staff and the...food made it a great visit. The menu is extensive with great choice. Both myself and my husband struggled to pick as so many options took our fancy. I had the chicken Maryland and it was fantastic. Took a while to cook but I prefer that as it means it’s cooked fresh. My husband had the fish and chips and he cleaned his plate. The kids menu was lovely also and we had 2 empty plates which is always a great sign when it comes to the kids. The deserts were equally as tasty. We found it very good value for the 4 of us and we will definitely be returning again soon.More
