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.

Cafe Townhouse leaves the best impressions! It is a gorgeous spot with fantastic food. There is something for everyone on the menu. The Nordic style flatbread with goats cheese is delicious. The generously portioned cakes went down a treat with my in-laws - you just...can't beat a traditional Victoria sponge. The staff were so attentive and made great recommendations. We're already looking forward to our next visit!More

I have eaten a the Cafe Townhouse in the lovely historic town of Doneraile twice recently. I have been blown away both times with the quality of both food and service. The ambience is sublime and the decor tasteful, relaxing and sophisticated. I love this...place and coupled with a walk around the Doneraile Estate you couldn’t wish for a nicer way to spend an afternoon.More

We recently had Myra call to our new home for an interior design colour consultation. This lady is amazing at her job, we are truly delighted with the service & advice we recieved. The colours flow amazingly well throughout the house. Everyone that has called...to see our new home have all complemented the colours, and the paint finishes. We used farrow and ball throughout, all colours picked by myra. On the day myra advised us to paint our kitchen units, as they would clash with the other colours we picked, it was the one place i said no, its perfect, a beautiful neutral cream. As sean our painter was finishing up, i realised myra was so right, and i had to get our painter sean to stay an extra week to do the units. I would highly recommend this lady, Myra knows her stuff.. I will be back in the very near future for curtins & i cant wait to do business again.More

From my very first visit to this Cafe I was hooked. It oozes opulence yet so very affordable!!! It suits everyone from couples to groups that enjoy a celebration with a high tea in beautiful surroundings. It is child friendly with wonderful staff. It has...a calming outdoor eating area only a few feet from one of the walking entrances into Doneraile Wildlife Park. And the food itself..........scrumptious 😋 Be sure to try the full Irish or at lunchtime the ploughman's plate. Im drooling just thinking of it.More

5 of us called in this rainy afternoon to the tearooms and a young waitress said we can come back half an hour later as the place was full. When we did we were greeted by a very ignorant woman and said there is no...booking under my name and she's not sure when any table will be free, they don't take any booking so on. The way she talked to us was very upsetting, we had two elderly wet and cold ladies and a young girl. So we stepped outside the door to discuss what will we do now. The next thing the same woman slammed the door behind us. We were shocked and completely humiliated! I couldn't believe the way were were threatened.More
