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 were disappointed with Knightstown overall as we arrived on a Wednesday evening & nothing was open apart from The Boston Bar & The Royal Valentia. We decided to take a risk on the Boston Bar as we were hungry. We had a couple of drinks & ordered a pizza & chips. The food menu is basic & the food arrived in takeaway boxes to our table which we didn’t mind. The pizza was good & the chips fresh & plentiful. There is nothing fancy about this place but our experience overall was good & we left satisfied.

While on holiday we stumbled across this lovely pub with starving adults and children in hand. Plenty of on street parking and outside dining space is available. The menu is simple bar food but perfect to force quick decisions from a large group. The food was served promptly and was fresh as you can get. The fish and chips was the pick of the menu with the chicken burger coming in at a close second. The pint of Guinness was superb. Service was excellent. Prices were more than reasonable. It was so good we all decided to make a 45 min drive to go back two days later and we had a great evening. A true little gem. Hope to make it back again next year.

Great night in Bostons bar last night with amazing music,pizza and drinks.Myself and my husband were enjoying the live music by two brilliant lads when a group of people ‘kids’ walked in visibly drunk at about 1 o clock in the morning. They disturbed the music and atmosphere in the pub… credit to the two lads playing the music for carrying on during the interruption! The girls behaviour was far worse than the boys in the group and expected service at this late in the night even tho they were clearly coming from somewhere else that was shut. The girls used aggressive language towards the owner and said things like ‘do you know who I am’ thinking that they were superior to the other customers who had been drinking from earlier hours. There was no entry after a certain time and drink was only served to the customers who had been drinking before this certain time. It was an amazing night overall and I would certainly recommend Bostons bar to anyone local or anyone touring the island and Kerry itself.

I am a regular visitor to Boston’s Bar but this was my first time to sample early morning breakfast and I wasn’t disappointed! A warm welcome from Sharon and Des, and a full Irish breakfast with “the works” carefully prepared for me by Dylan, the man on the pan . I savoured every bite and relaxed with my cappuccino and my morning papers. A lovely start to my day and I will certainly be back and recommending this to guests and visitors to Valentia Island. A welcome addition to the island offerings.

Rudest owner ever - cursing and shouting in our faces saying they were closed and to get out, while everyone else, including those who just walked in with us, were being served. The door was wide open, a live band playing and drinks being served at the bar. Grand if they were closed, we would have left no problem. The aggressive tone was completely unnecessary, made worse by the fact that it was completely discriminatory - choosing who was being served. Left feeling embarrassed and upset. AVOID.

Visited Bostons last week on our holidays to Valentia Island. What a fantastic pub we went 3 times in our short trip. The breakfast was excellent and I would highly recommend the kids wanted to go every morning!!! We also went on 2 evenings where we listened to some live music and had some great chats with the staff and some locals. The staff were brilliant and couldn’t do enough for us. We are back in Valentia for a longer period in the summer and will definitely be returning to Bostons!!!

We were here last night for an early evening pint and a game of pool, three adults and two kids. Lovely atmosphere and welcoming from the staff. The business' in Valentia island have all been very welcoming and friendly and Boston's didn't disappoint!

Fabulous few nights here. Great craic and great music. Always made very welcome. When the weather is good it is lovely to sit outside under the red umbrellas and watch the world go by and enjoy the sunshine. The toilets are spotless and the place overall is very clean. Des and Sharon are always very welcoming. They even leave a bowl of water out for the dogs. Well done guys!

We're over from London for a long weekend visiting friends who have moved to this beautiful island. Visited Boston's every night and received a very warm and friendly evening every time from the staff and locals. A great hub of the community. PS Guinness was excellent.

Spend some time down on velentia each year and always can't wait to get back to the Boston's bar for a great pint of Guinness and bit of craic Des and Sharron both lovely people and very inviting.. they even fed the baby while we had our dinner and a drink .. now you would not get that in a Dublin pub 😆 also big thanks to Katie and the rest of the staff who really looked after us during our stay and can't wait to get back again next year

Popped over to Valentia for a week visiting friends and paid Boston's a visit. Traditional Irish pub, great atmosphere, fantastic music, friendly staff and a fine pint of Guinness I'll be back over soon.
