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.

Delighted we found this gorgeous place. We were looking for somewhere to have a drink and some food as a family of 4. As we are not local we didnt know the town too well. The outside is well advertised for food and decorated beautifully....When we went in it was even nicer. Decor is gorgeous and the beer garden is unreal. A little cold at the moment so we took a table inside. Service was 10/10. Guinness was "the best he ever had" says my husband. And lovely large glass of wine. Food was top notch also. Garlic pizza bread, wings, and the chips!!! Amazing - kids ate every bit of it which rarely happens! We will definitely be back to this place.More

A truly charming spot in an incredibly quaint little village. Tim's makes you feel like you have stepped into a movie filmed in Ireland, and the folks who run this place are SUPERB. They let us squeeze our group of 12 into a space for...8-10 on a BUSY evening. They were super welcoming & VERY good at taking care of us all. An instant favorite in Ireland. Will go back for sure.More
