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.

Country kitchen decor. All the locals go there and know each other. I can see why! Delicious home cooked style meals with generous portions. I felt like I was in my Aunties dining room. Definitely worth the visit to Thurles just for this!!

I had booked this restaurant for lunch on a trip from Dublin to Cork. Gary was very kind and held the table for us ( 6 people) as we were delayed on our journey due to traffic and bad weather. We got a lovely welcome...when we arrived and it is a beautiful quaint restaurant. The ladies serving were so pleasant and nothing was a problem. My son ordered the pancakes and even though it was past breakfast time this was accomodated and they were delicious by all accounts! Everyone enjoyed their lunch and I would highly reccomend a visit to Ryans Daughter restaurant. The side salad was delicious and the coleslaw so fresh and tasty. Thanks to all!More

We were late getting into Thurles after a five hour drive from north of the border and were eager to find a place to stay the night. There's not many B&B's that will let you through the door so late in the evening unless you've...booked in advance but "Ryan's Daughter Restaurant and B&B" didn't seem to mind in the least our rapping on their door at 10 o'clock at night. Directions from a friendly local had led us to this "little gem" in O'Donovan Rossa Street just off the main square of the town. On checking in, we were led upstairs to our double room with en suite, television, tea making facilities and, as we were to discover soon after, a supremely comfortable, crisp white sheeted, double bed. All standard fare you may say, but the "humble money" we had just handed over downstairs led us to think we were settling for something a little less comfortable. Happily as it turned out, that wasn't the case and this establishment just offered exceptional value for money. A hearty breakfast was served next morning in the restaurant by friendly and smiling staff who advised us on the most scenic route to follow as we left to continue our onward journey. As we drove out of Thurles we couldn't help thinking how lucky we were to have found the best person to ask, for the best place to stay, at the best price in town. A lucky find indeed!More
