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.

Visited foleys on the mall as recommended by family friends, and I can say it did not dissapoint. The menu does not have a huge variety but we were impressed with what we did order. Service was top class too the waitresses are all so...friendly and pleasant. On our way out of the restaurant I did notice the owner/manager behind the bar , visibly drunk and shouting at the staff. The bar was quite full also which shocked me even more that he was drinking while working. Very unprofessional and seeing the way he spoke towards the staff and customers changed my opinion about revisiting Foleys on the Mall.More

We got beautiful food but it was €17 for beef carvery had to get extra gravy and had two bite size pieces of broccoli was a portion, mean portion of veg. Steak was €29 we could not justify the price for what was served. It...was lovely but definitely not worth it for a stripline steak. The carbonara was beautiful to . Service was fabulous lovely girl. Over all good experience but just couldn't justify the price for what we got . Won't rush down there again when we can get just as nice elsewhere for cheaper.More

I. had chicken burger & my friend had chicken prawn & chorizo salad Both were delicious Great & friendly service As I am...lactose intolerant it was lovely to have delicious sorbet for dessert- my friend had lemon cake- which at €8.50 for a small slice was - I thought overpriced.

We LOVED this restaurant - returned 3 times! Everything was delicious. The quality of the food was comparable to high end “fine dining” restaurants back home in Washington DC. We tried the fish stew at every restaurant we visited in Ireland, and Foley’s was far...and away the very best! The atmosphere was fun, warm, and casual, exactly what we were hoping to find In Ireland. Foley’s is a real gem. Keep up the good work!!!More

Visited here for an impromptu lunch with my family & got a very friendly welcome from the staff. The soup of the day was delicious and the homemade brown bread was worth the visit alone! We had some absolutely delicious desserts with the highlight being...a fab lemon meringue cake. I’ve literally never tasted a better dessert wow! We all really enjoyed the food & friendly atmosphere & will definitely be back!!More

Me and my partner went in for dinner last night, food was okay, my glass was dirty for the water, my partners pint came over with barely a head on it and it didn’t look very drinkable to be honest, when I rang to make...my reservation it wasn’t very pleasant, not what you’d expect from a buisness. a man not in a uniform (presume the owner) was very rude and snapped back to my partner when he asked him where the bathrooms were, I have always loved foleys and had brilliant experiences in there over the years but don’t think I will be going back, not a very pleasant experience.More

Went for dinner with 9 friends from the minute we went it it was bad. The staff did not know about drinks and mixers . We waited 30 minutes to order and over 35 minutes for or dinner. We ordered wine but they forgot it...and when they brought it to the table we had no glasses so they turned to the table behind and took their wine glass and gave them to us after . They then forgot our coffee and when we asked the 3rd time and they brought them to the table there was a fly in the jug and the waiter tried to take it out with her finger with out us seeing. The manager was walking around all evening and not once asked if everything was ok to any table . The food was bad the fish was dry. We have been going to foleys for years and its my 10 year olds favourite restaurant but since changing hands recently its gone down hill. I really hope they can sort this as its a fab place.More

We had heard so much about Foleys On The Mall. It was busy when we arrived. There seems to be lack of communication between the staff. I'm aware that it was busy, yet! Ordered dinner, I don't know what I expected but half cooked frozen...fries certainly wasn't it,disgusting.. Fish not too bad. We ordered drinks which took 15 minutes to arrive after we reminded the member of staff the second time. It's not a friendly atmosphere at all. On the plus side the decor was beautiful. The staff seemed under pressure which is to be expected. Maybe they are trainee.?They seem to be falling over one another. I personally wouldn't recommend.More

Fun fact.. we were just charged €7.90 for a handful of dry spaghetti in this establishment. I queried it with our server who then checked with her manager. She returned, and apologetically said, that's the correct price! Overall, it is a nice setting but what...a ridiculous experience. We can only laugh! I would not recommend eating here.More

Wonderful meal, great selection onthe menu with equally delicious specials board. Staff were friendly and attentive and very helpful to accommodate any requests we made. Lovely atmosphere would recommend Foleys. Have eaten her a few times and has never disappointed. 😊
