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.

The food was very good with nice size portions. They seemed busy and understaffed but all our needs were met. They also have take out for a late night pick up to take to hotel.

Stopped here today on the way to Cliffs of Moher. Ordered 2 fish and chips. The food was not good. Hardly any fish in a very over cooked batter. The peas looked like they needed to be rehydrated. We were going to mention to the...staff but the girl just lifted our plates - even though there was food still on it and asked did we want the bill. Didn’t even ask how the food was. We would not recommend it.More

Had a few days in Lahinch in Mid August and as we viewed a few places to dine, we opted for Danny Macs. The food was excellent on both nights we dined here. Service was prompt and staff were courteous and polite. Would highly recommend...this place and very economical . Toilets were in pristine condition too. Will definitely be back to Lahinch.More

It was going to heavily rain and we entered this pub. We stopped to have dinner. Nice meat and fish dishes, and good beers! Very kind staff, they changed our table as soon as a more confortable one was free! I recommend this pub

We ate here a few times over the week that we stayed in the town. Great pub, lovely food but it’s sometimes tough to get in the pub! Not a bad thing I suppose. Highly recommend

I wouldn't usually write reviews however I felt the need to write one for Danny Mac's in the hopes that either management improves it by making serious changes or that other patrons will know to avoid it. The area we sat in in the pub...left our trousers dirty, the table (despite being cleaned by a member of staff in front of us) was dirty, as was our utensils and glasses. This initial impression of the pub left us contemplating leaving however we decided to stay because we just wanted convenient pub grub, the food itself was inedible and the staff were not rude but we're however more concerned chatting with each other than attending to the customer. Not only would I not recommend Danny Mac's I would advise people to avoid it all costs, there was no redeemable qualities at all to be found here.More

I've just had quite frankly the most negative experience ever in this restaurant. My daughter is a coeliac and the menu clearly states that the pasta and also sausage and mash are both gf options . We sat down and my husband queried the gf...options with the waitress. She told him that neither of these were actually gluten free and when he queried this further, her response was "well I'm telling you now!" I went back to complain and agan I was met with the most ignorant of attitudes, she didn't want to acknowledge the seriousness of falsely advertising food as gluten free. Her response was to turn on her heel and walk into the kitchen leaving me standing in the bar with everyone watching on ... My daughter is a coeliac, it isnt a diet choice! Shame on this establishment for putting people at risk but more still for the incredible rudeness displayed to my family for pointing this out !!More

Popped in for a bowl of seafood chowder and it was so worth it, really yummy. Friendly staff, quite busy but people eat and move off quick so not a major problem. If you like seafood chowder give it a try.

We ate here during our stay in Lahinch. It is a busy pub/restaurant. Very friendly and efficient service with quick turnaround and good value for money. Tasty food from a menu of about 6 dishes. We had chicken curry and fish and chips.

Terrible spot. Very concerning how there are so many five star reviews. The food was awful, the staff were unhelpful and seemed to ignore any contact with customers on the day. The server seemed to be rushing us and hovering around us when a queue...started to begin at the door. Avoid this place, seems to be the best out of a terrible bunch of places to eat in lahinch.More

Sorry. I thought you were referring to Danny Macs in Killarney which is a big singing pub. Danny Macs in Lahinch is a small cafe. I was disappointed with the scones but the place was popular.
