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.

This hotel is rather jaded but does have a certain allure. Pine furniture, wooden curtain poles, and dated carpets transport you back to the seventies. Staff are friendly and helpful. There is a secure car park at the rear of the hotel. This place is...ok for a one night stopover, but I would not want to stay any longer. Reasonably priced at 115 euros b&b for two.More

The people here are fantastic. Mary and Eamonn, the hosts, took great care of us after we had problems renting a car. They arranged public transportation for us to complete our visit to Ireland without a car. Nothing was too much trouble for them and...their staff to make sure we had a good visit to Ireland. The room was newly remodeled and very comfortable. The food in the restaurant was very good and we had breakfast, lunch, and dinner there to prove it. Try the full Irish breakfast if you like breakfast and their fish and chips for dinner. Roscommon is a centrally located to visit middle/northern Ireland. This has to be one of the best places we have stayed at on our many trips to Europe and elsewhere.More

I and my wife ate in Gleesons this evening. I ordered a goat's cheese salad which appeared to have plenty of variety in the ingredients. I had soup first and when the salad arrived I got dug in. It appeared to be rather bland and...was not as tasty as I had expected. When I got the menu to order dessert and coffee I checked the ingredients, many of those listed were missing. There was greenery in abundance which I believe was there to disguise the absence of the other ingredients. I mentioned the absence of ingredients to the server. She made no comment, departed and returned with my order of coffee and cake. My wife was quite put out that there was no effort at an apology. Later, I asked for the bill and the girl said that she wasn't charging for the coffee and cake. I insisted on paying for them. I told her that I didn't accept her explanation of an error on the part of the chef. It looked to me as if the salad was swamped with greenery to disguise the absence of the other ingredients. As we were discussing the matter in conversational tones a young man approached me in an aggressive manner. He and a young lady were the only other diners present. He told me to leave the girl alone and that he wanted to have his meal in peace. I told him that I had a complaint to make and that he should mind his own business. He left and the girl became very dramatic, waving her arms about and raising her voice. As it looked as if it the situation was about to escalate I left. It is my considered opinion that if I had been a younger person I would have been treated with more respect. I wouldn't recommend Gleesons to anyone in my age category as OAPs are treated with less respect now than ever before.More

Visited Gleesons on Friday evening. We did not have a booking. Covid certs checked. Good spacial separation in the restaurant. Menu had good choices. Enjoyed the bruschetta and the vol au vent for starters. The mains were very disappointing. The penne boscaiola was very bland...and needed more seasoning. I choose the lamb stew, the restaurant’s signature dish. It was very poor, very watery with a huge amount of celery and small shaving of lamb. Service was good and the waitress was pleasant. I would have given a lower rating were it not for the fact that the starters were good.More

COVID 19 has changed all our lives this year. We were about to meet our family after 3 years when suddenly the experience was rubies by wasps. It is ridiculous how many were there. They were in our food drinks and our hair when we...were trying to enjoy our meal. Absolutely ridiculous and very disappointed. They need to hire an exterminator and/or an employee to deal with the problem thoroughly :/More

We visited Roscommon town and were attracted like bees to this lovely spot. We had lunch outside and quickly noticed that we were sitting on heated benches with extra heating around us. What a fantastic idea and it just added to a lovely atmosphere. A...top notch lunch later and the decision was made to book dinner for the next evening. The second time was even better. We wished we had time to make it thrice! The staff and service matched the food. Bravo to all.More

Stayed here overnight recently and it didn’t disappoint. Beautiful period house in the middle of the town, ideally located with a lovely courtyard to enjoy some outdoor dining. Room was cosy and quaint and perfectly adequate for a comfortable nights sleep. Had a glass of...lovely chilled Chardonnay and bruschetta for a light dinner - excellent. Breakfast was very good and the table service was impeccable. Cait was lovely to deal with too. Will definitely stay here whenever I’m in Roscommon again.More

We ate in the restaurant (outside it actually due to COVID restrictions) while on a cruise on the river Shannon (a short drive/taxi journey away). The food was really excellent and very reasonable but the service was the highlight, Eamonn and Mary and all the...staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. They have invested in some excellent outdoor dining facilities which make the outdoor dining experience a great one. We were there in a very wet evening but it was dry dnd warm in the courtyard.More

Called into Gleeson's on the way home from a walk, without booking. We just had mains; slow cooked lamb roulade (just so tender, and lovely flavour) and chick pea curry (very tasty). Excellent food at reasonable prices. We will visit again.

Attended here last weekend for the afters of a wedding. They are a beautiful venue with great social distancing and cleanliness procedures in place. They had a room set up for the group with social distancing in place and provided a beautiful lay out of...food and no shortage of it either. Staff were very friendly and looked after the group very well. The owner was involved in the running of our event and she was so friendly in welcoming everyone and making sure everything was okay. She runs an excellent business. The p;ace seemed renovated and was so well decorated both inside and outside. Would definitely come here again for food if in the Roscommon area.More
