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.

Better than excellent is the charcoal ove-baked Sea Bream .What a delicious combination of tastes. This Chef deserves multiple stars for a finely balanced combination allowing the fresh ,juicy Sea bream to reign supreme. The best fish dish I have tasted in a long time...and I have eaten a great deal of fish in my time I defy you to find better!! A big CONGRATS DavidMore

This was our second choice for food late one night and I'm very happy the first place was closed for dining. The food here is absolutely outstanding as well are the drinks. The first night we had such a wonderful server, the second night not...as much. The prices were average but the food was amazing.More

Great food, drink and service. Highly recommend Carroll’s Gastropub! Steaks, Fish and Chips, sticky chicken wings and plenty of whiskey and Guinness. Thanks Carroll’s for your hospitality.

7 of us went to Carroll’s today to celebrate my mother’s birthday. We were really impressed with the quality of the food: Sunday roast (beef) was succulent and tasty, fish and chips, cesar salad, different cheesecakes and coffee. The staff were very attentive and professional....We really liked how spacious, open and airy it was with front windows completely open generating a lovely breeze. It’s really big inside - a great set up for groups. We had a comfortable booth. It has ample free parking out the back which we didn’t know about. Lucan village can get busy - though free on-street parking on Sundays. We will be back. Just to say, the plates staff had to carry up and down steps seemed heavy (especially the fish &chips).More

Myself and my wife have visited Carroll’s on a number of occasions and always had a great experience, the staff are always extremely friendly and attentive and food has always been very tasty with a few very nice vegetarian options available. On our most recent...visit we had the pleasure of being served Roisin who was very friendly and a pleasure to talk too. They also have a lovely cocktail menu and are happy to make one that isn’t on their menu, all in all a very positive experience, thanks again BenMore

Very disappointed. We waited over an hour for our main course. One of th guests did not get starter in spite of reminding staff twice. On two occasions dishes were brought to our table ( for 2 people but we were a party of 5)....When the food finally arrived, it was disappointing. There seems to have been a complete disconnection between front of house and the kitchen and having brought the wrong dishes to our table, the waiting staff seem totally confused about which table the dishes were for. The prices did not reflect the quality of the food. I would NOT recommend this restaurantMore

A midweek solo dinner - although its a large place, I was noticed and welcomed quite quickly. I had two starters instead of one and a mains - and portions were so large I didn't manage to finish all of this. The seafood chowder was...particularly tasty. Service was friendly and reasonably quick.More

We had an average experience today dining in this pub , staff were friendly and helpful. Toilets need more attention (Dyson hand dryer in ladies was disgusting) . We ordered the soup special (cauliflower soup), prawn pil pil , baby back bbq ribs. For desert...white chocolate cheesecake. Drinks 1x Americano , 2 x beer . Total €56. Ribs were so tough under the sauce, not ‘falling off the bone’. Soup was basic but eatable, prawn pil pil was just ok. Probably won’t return. We will try somewhere else in Lucan on next visit.More

I dined in this pub on a weekly basis for many years and always thought the food was excellent however I returned last Sunday for the first time in quite a while and couldn’t believe how much the food had deteriorated. The beef was as...tough as old boots, I returned it and the replacement was marginally better but still truly awful. Really disappointed to see this level of decline in what was a great eatery.

We used to love this place travelled a distance to cone here but omg it has gone down so much. Gave it a few chances since the covid but it’s just on a slippery slope of getting worse each time Got burgers this evening burned...to a cylinder even the bun burgers. Sent it back and came back just as bad . They used to have the best steak on the stone and that’s been taken away. Their salads were so tasty with a fabulous dressing now replaced with dry rocket leaves no dressing . The staff are so helpful none girl in particular really understood our concerns. She was excellent at her job and the kitchen are letting the team down with such poor food The drink especially the carlsberg draft is exceptional it’s a pity they can’t do as good as good a job ok the food Definitely won’t be back ….More

Unfortunately the pandemic seems to have removed both the common sense approach of the chefs along with the food quality in Carroll’s, gone are the steak on a stone and other customer favourites in favour of basic steaks options cooked to the chefs tastes along...with basic fare, Really ? No idea what they were thinking as we won’t be back if this is what can be expected. The staff on the other hand while obviously new to the venue were very helpful and attentive, no problems there whatsoever. Still to be fair it wasn’t bad, just nowhere near as good.More

We saw no evidence of poor hygiene in any way when we were there. Being from a health service environment I am sure we would have noticed.
