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.

Got lucky enough to get a seat at this truly authentic Irish bar and tavern. Everyone there knew each other and were friends. We got there around 8pm in time to meet the family that owns the bar: including Gerard (sp) and Sean - along...with Sean’s wife and longtime friene Eamon. In true Irish fashion the jokes conversation flowed like wine, or Guiness rather, and we wish Sean and his friends could have stayed longer because after dinner was when the fun began. But first dinner: absolutely remarkable: we ordered the mussels in white sauce (fantastic and a very generous portion that is easy to share ) and the fresh caught hake fish with chorizo with vegetables grown in Gerard’s garden, and of course a Guinness and two glasses of Sauv Blanc. When we finished dinner Gerard (owner) sat with us and we chatted for another hour or so, and his outgoing, gregarious personality made the night memorable as he is a true showman who’s charisma had us hanging on every word. ProTip: ask him to show you his match stick trick to test your Druid bloodMore

We had dinner both night's of our visit. The food was delicious and I had the fish both times. The atmosphere is relaxed even when very busy. The staff are extremely pleasant and courteous. I think the summer should be extended, and maybe the Chef...Jack could continue to delight the customers.More

Had a family meal in Coynes last summer. Make sure to book in advance, it can be hard to get a table. The pub itself is really nice traditional Irish. Service was quick. Food was a let down. Medicore seafood and average pub fare overall.

Walked about four miles to reach this pub and it was worth the effort. Sunday, early evening, and it was full ! Great atmosphere with men, ladies and children present. Be warned though - first thing I was asked when entering was “do you sing?”!!!...Bar lady and owner were both so welcoming and friendly. Got a taxi back (sourced by the bar lady) but would definitely do the four mile walk again as it was so worth it.More

What more could you want from a pub? A warm and welcoming atmosphere, the perfect way to end a long day walking in clear sea air along the Renvyle Peninsula. Fine selection of wines, whisky and beer. We particularly enjoyed the Bushmills and smooth Guinness...poured to perfection. Connemara lamb, fresh duck and local sirloin steak grilled by a top class chef. Impressed by the tiramisu for dessert, which was prepared in the authentic Italian manner. Thank you to the owner and our waitress Louisa who were very welcoming and efficient on both visits. Highly recommended to anyone passing nearby.More

This was our favorite restaurant on our entire trip because the owner was so gracious and warm. We had no reservations on a Saturday night, having just gotten into town, and he opened up a back area where there was to be a private party...later on so that we could have a place to eat. He then chatted with us and made sure we had everything we needed. The following night we made reservations and he again provided us with charming commentary. The food was awesome, all fresh fish which is what we were looking for. Turns out they only serve meals during the summer months as the chef has to return to Dublin during the school year where he teaches at the culinary school.More

Absolutely beautiful food served here. I had the tuna sashimi to start and it was bliss. Michelin star standard! We ate with our three boys who were accommodated really well. The owner came over to chat to us and when he asked if we were...from England he said “the pubs in England are known for being characterful and the pubs in Ireland are known for being full of characters so I wanted to make a characterful pub”, hit the nail on the head!More

Good people but especially good food. Not to many choices but a very good quality. You can go from fish to meat and not to be disappointed. A place to stop near the cannemara camper & camping Park another place to stop

This place is a gem. No pub like it as far as I am concerned. St Anne’s the small part to the left when you walk in the door is pure class, get a high stool at the bar and sit with your back to...a little brass plated sign called the bullsXXX corner. The staff are as good as you’ll get anywhere in the world. I was in renvyle for two weeks and visited here at least 10 times in that period. When you are in tullycross it draws you in. The Guinness is creamy not too cold not too hot just right the way it should be. The owner Gerard is a character and a great guy with it. Colin his nephew is another person I have to Mention. Makes you feel like you belong and serves a perfect pint. Karen also deserves a shout . Lovely girl and makes a terrific brown bread to go with the sea food chowder. Food is top notch also and price is fair for what you are getting. Food in this pub is as good as you will get anywhere in Connemara and has a great variety. Chef is Jack Duffy captain of the kitchen and boy does this guy know how to do it. We had a variety of meals from duck to steak to fish all as good as each other and each night better than the previous which we didn’t think was possible. Anyone who heads to Connemara must call in here. Just check to see what month food stops as I Think it’s not all year round. Anyway the Guinness is food in itself. I am back in Dublin now and can’t wait for my next visit to Paddy Coynes. Best pub in Ireland as far as I’m concerned and locals are a great bunch of people who will stop And chat and make you feel very welcome.More

Spent 10 days in Tully Cross with my partner and our 2 daughters. Paddy Coynes is a fabulous spot for a drink and/or food. Delicious fresh fish dishes, very friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. I'd recommend booking to secure an early evening table.

We recently had a few meals in Paddy Coynes. Excellent food, lovely staff and a brilliant atmosphere. It was great to catch up on times gone by. I first came to Tullycross in 1966 and Paddy Coynes was a legend then. Thank you. Katherine
