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.

We always loved Carroll’s for a decent bit of gastro pub food but unfortunately it has being taken over by new management and we definitely won’t be back. The food was awful, there is no other way of describing it. It is microwaved food which...is not hot and is out in three minutes flat ….. it is NOT gastro pub food!!!! The atmosphere was niosy in an intense way with kids running around, tv’s everywhere and some type of music playing and flys flying around. It doesn’t appear to know what it is… a gastro pub? A sports bar ? A kiddie pub ? The 1 star I gave was for the nice lounge staff. We left feeling really disappointed as it was once such a lovely place to eat. Such a pity.More

Service was very good, our server was Juliet and she was so attentive as well as the other girls serving us. They kept checking to make sure we were okay for everything. Food was disappointing, the Thai yellow curry was bland/tasteless as if there was...no curry paste used! There was absolutely no taste. Fish and chips was nice . Please change the curry because this was the only downfall.More

Pre covid Carroll’s was a great spot for dinner but now it is nothing short of disappointing. Service was poor and slow. After an hour starters eventually arrived but with no cutlery. Another 45 mins passed before the bland mains arrived. Tart Tatin for dessert...was nothing but a regular apple tart. They ran out of brandy in the bar and they couldn’t even get the cocktail orders right. Won’t be returning.More

I hate writing bad reviews but the fact we didn't receive an apology that I know of (perhaps there was one at payment that I didnt see) Wednesday night wouldnt really be a busy night in Lucan and the place was adequately busy but mostly...at the bar, with at least 3 wait staff the 4/5 tables ordering food should have been covered adequately. We were a large group which can be tricky especially for the kitchen, however the kitchen handled it well and the food was lovely. However... we were left waiting for out food and drinks order to be taken for at least 30 mins, and then when the food did come 2 items were completely wrong, and had to be taken away and correct food eventually came out, as you would expect, 20 mins or so later, no apology or anything. With 2 small kids in the group they had to ask for kids menus, and we had to go buy crayons for them to colour in the kids games on it (there was enough time to do that) we were never approached again at all until we asked for the plates to be cleared at the bar, not even another drinks order taken, we had to go to the bar to order drinks. We were there for a birthday and they kindly brought out the cake and were very nice to sing happy birthday. I hope it was just a disorganization of staff or there was some other issue, but it was a very disappointing evening. We had been there several times in the past and even for other birthdays and never had any issues so I do hope this was a one off.More

An absolutely horrendous experience, our server, Dee, was obnoxious and rude. The food was decent but nothing could make up for the awful experience provided by our server. Hopefully she's not kept on much longer. Very disappointing

Had a smile when I entered here, having visited some other watering holes in this lovely clean village, I find myself in a nice clean open bar, lively and comfortable atmosphere. Lovely bar to sit and enjoy a good pint of Guinness, whiskey / spirit...selection is ok also. Staff here are good, great communication, friendly element - this looks like a nice place to work! Young chap served me, polite, welcoming, good at his work, a great barman. Looking forward to trying food here next visit. Well done folks - definitely worth a visit 👍More

Have been to Carrolls a few times but first time having steaks. Both steaks were not cooked as requested but decided not to send them back as the service was slow and never came back to check how everything was going. Seems to be slipping...in quality since our last visit. Waiting staff were scarce. Don’t think we’ll be backMore

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.
