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.

Chicken wing portion has been halved since we last visited. Paid €16 and got 6 small chicken wings. It really did look miserable. Not sure what has happened but we won’t be rushing back. A real shame.

Having trudged around the fairways for the best part of 4 hours this was indeed an energiser. The warm welcome from the staff, the service, and the lunch itself was a real pick me up from our weary four-ball. Our server was quick, efficient, and...friendly. She helped recommend to all for lunch as we attacked a fabulous Seafood Chowder (plus delicious brown soda bread) that certainly didn’t disappoint! We accompanied this with a delicious assortment of sandwiches and salads, and we were well on the road to recovery. In the end we changed our plans to have dinner in the local village and returned that evening. Again, all in the party agreed that the service/food was standout, with the requisite options to cover all palates, all cooked to perfection. 10/10 to all concerned, we can’t wait to return again next year.More

Booked into the bar/restaurant for lunch today. The service was atrocious. I asked for an oat milk with my tea which took over 15 mins to arrive, I got the impression they had forgotten about it. We had ordered 2 soups and one toasted sandwich....When the waitress finally brought down the oat milk, my partner asked for chips to go with his soup and sandwich. About 10mins later, the chips arrived… but no soup and sandwich. A couple came in after us and were already served their food during this time. Our food finally arrived and we were honestly disgusted by it(see photo below). Our food had obviously been sitting there for a good while before being brought to us. The staff were apologetic when we spoke with them but after driving an hour and a half for this booking we were extremely annoyed and frankly turned off our lunch altogether. It was our first time going to the hotel and we were really looking forward to it. Not too sure this bar/restaurant deserves 5*.More

Booked afternoon tea at Trump International Hotel for my daughter's 18th birthday, and to say we were blown away is an understatement, from the moment we arrived we were met by Brian (what a gentleman), he welcomed us and took us to our table which...had a breath taking view, Our gorgeous waitress could not do enough for us, they fussed over my daughter and made her feel like a princess, sang happy birthday as they brought out her cake, as we were leaving Brian came to check in with us, gave us little hotel mementos to take away, after our tea we walked around the fabulous grounds and down by the beach, what a stunning place, we sooo enjoyed our visit and can't wait to return..thank you to all the wonderful team there, it really is a special place and we highly recommend a visit....💕💕More

We recently had lunch here while on holiday and it was some of the best food we ate during our stay in the area. There was 9 adults and 4 children in our group and everyone really enjoyed the food and the service was also...excellent, the only small downside was the 15% service charge but to be fair we would have left that as a tip anyway.More
