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.

25 minutes waiting for two bowls of soup. Small bowls served Luke warm. € 6:90 for a small bowl is far too expensive for what was on offer. Handed it back and went elsewhere. Not enough staff working. They could do a lot better than...this.More

Restaurant was certainly busy but clearly lacking in staff. Food came out repeatedly lukewarm and very disjointed. Waited for 30mins just for a bowl of ice cream for one of the children. Very disappointed in both quality of the meal and having to ask for...clean cutlery, meals being warm and orders completely forgotten about because staff were totally overwhelmed. To be fair, the manager didn’t charge for the wine and other drinks that had been ordered with the meal.More

The staff were super friendly. It was a busy Monday night and nothing was too much bother. The food was excellent and we had a lovely family meal. Great live music in the bar area too. Make sure to go early as you can’t book...a table.More

Popped in for midweek lunch. At mid day there was only one other couple in there. By 1230 it was heaving. The staff were amazing. Very friendly bar man with a warm welcome and helpful waitress. Service was spot on. I had the best fish...and chips I’ve had for ages. I really couldn’t have enjoyed our visit more.More

Drove from the East Coast to enjoy a few days of sightseeing - tried to stop for lunch at 2pm with very hungry kids. Went into the pub and it was busy - but there were empty tables that needed to be bused. We waited...- but there was no one to greet or sit you. So after roaming around we found a waitress who gladly offered to clean a table for us. We thanked her and as she began cleaning off the table an angry older woman cam flying across the pub and shouted - "No! No! No more walk-ins!" - And then stormed off! Seriously? Lunch is served from 12 to 3 - it was literally 5 after 2 and you are turning people away? Moreover - we were already in the process of being seated by a staff member - the PROFESSIONAL thing to do would have been to sit us and then inform the staff that no more walk-ins would be permitted - but to shout at the poor waitress and not even make eye contact with the family you are turning away is RUDE. My boys - 10 and 8 - were so hungry - we had been driving over three hours - that I asked the waitress if she could ask the angry orchard woman if she could make an exception and sit us - but the poor girl returned and was so sorry that she had to turn us away. Sorry - but if you cannot handle a lunch crowd maybe you should call it a day and close up shop. Post COVID most restaurants and pubs are dying for more business - and you're turning away tourists with a half empty pub - sad really. And I understand if you lack staff and maybe had to begin limiting patrons - but shame on your rude and unprofessional behavior! We were already in the process of being seated! No bother - We took our business to Lisdoonvarna and enjoyed a beautiful lunch at The Ritz - The owner was lovely and food was great! I suggest you all do the same.More

Nightly live music, the staff is fantastic and friendly. We stopped here daily for at least a pint of Guinness and some music. We never ate here, but the staff we encountered throughout the week were great, Courtney, Declan, and the crew!

Fitz's is a pleasant place with a great staff. The food is average. The atmosphere is a bit sterile. More like a hotel restaurant than an Irish pub, of which there are three in the area. If you are staying at the Hotel Doolin (which...is great), it is most convenient to eat at Fitz's, but it's not a great destination point. The bar with the music is in an adjoining room, so the music is not easy to hear, and they don't serve dinner in the bar.More
