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.

Visited McMahon’s tonight which is our last night in Ireland after spending 2 weeks here. My husband and I had the ribeye steak which was amazing, delicious, very tender. Our nieces had the Chicken Cesar Salad and Fish and Chips which they said were soooo...good! The prawns and mushrooms we had for starters were very good. We had the Sticky Pudding and Death By Chocolate which did not disappoint. Great way to end a fabulous meal! Our server Ian was spot on, very knowledgeable and had quite the hand movements! Thanks for making our last night in Ireland a memorable one! Heading back to Chicago tomorrow.More

We had a great time in McMahon's. We made a late notice reservation for 11 people, including 3 children. Everything was great from the time we arrived until the time we left. The children's table had colouring pages and crayons already on the table to...amuse the children and the staff thought to ask if we wanted the children's meals at the same time as the adult's starters. Our server was very funny and lifted everyone's spirits. We are only sorry we didn't catch his name. He and Sally took great care of us and we will definitely go back. It was also very impressive how he memorised all of our orders and didn't miss anything.More

Nicely decorated pub with good service. We enjoyed visiting here one evening. The food was plentiful, tasty and very good value. I had a roast beef dinner and there was plenty of meat on the plate.
