10 hilariously bad reviews of Dublin’s Pubs
All we know that Dublin is the capital city of Ireland. Located on the East coast of the country, it is the most densely populated metropolis on the Island and home to history and heritage, culture and entertainment. St. Patrick’s Day was also recently celebrated, with its traditions now spread all over the globe. While Dublin is synonymous with the arts and literature, Irish history and Guinness, it is also often associated with pub culture. In fact, Dublin is home to over 700 pubs (exactly 772, in February 2018).
For many tourists visiting Dublin city, but also for locals, the pub is a leading aspect of the social scene.
These customers, however, feel a tad different.
Here are ten hilariously bad Google reviews of Irish pubs in the Emerald Isle’s capital, collected by Irelandbeforeyoudie.com.
– O’Neill’s Pub & Kitchen, Dublin 2
Most of the time, a hungover review is devoid of standard or expectations. Anything that fills that void is usually good enough.
Not in this instance though….
“Literally the worst meal I have ever eaten in my whole entire mortal life. Went in with an absolutely sinister hangover that needed a cure, and so my standards were very very low. And yet I couldn’t eat anything on the plate it was all so disgusting.”
– The Temple Bar, Dublin 2
Set in the heart of Dublin’s cultural quarter, the Temple Bar Irish pub is one of the best known pubs in the city. With a quaint atmosphere, traditional setting and tonnes of other out-of-towners, according to many it is a touristy pub.
And in fact this sarcastic customer tells his experience:
“Only go here if you’re an American with more money than sense”
And another said:
“A hole, this place will milk you dry – just not worth it. Shove it where the sun don’t shine.”
– The Gin Palace, Dublin 1
If anyone has ever been in The Gin Palace on Middle Abbey Street, they are certain to relate to this two-star Google review.
“Feels like it wants to be a posh place but is stuck being a pub. It’s a really odd place.”
– Neary’s, Dublin 2
This expert traveller had experience enough to write this one-star pretty fun Google review.
“Total kip. Barman has a personality of a stone. Been all over Europe and this by far is the worst pub”
– P. Mac’s
Anyone who has ever been to this trendy hipster bar, just off South William Street, will know exactly what this review means.
“Too many tinder dates”
– The Confession Box, Dublin 1
You understand what this review means?
“Too much singing. Not enough not singing.”
– Sin É, Dublin 1
Located on the quays, this hipster dive bar is a solid trend for live music and loose vibes. This reviewer has a point!
“Loud and messy. It can be a good thing or a bad thing depending who you ask.”
– J.W. Sweetman, Dublin 2
Sitting opposite the O’Connell Street Bridge in the heart of Dublin city there is this pub.
Well, you see a lot of hilariously bad Google reviews of Irish pubs in Dublin online and not only, but what about this remark?
“As disappointing as gout”
– Grogan’s, Dublin 2
This pub is located in the heart of the city’s “creative quarter”, so is impossible be exactly sure what the customer expected. And, moreover, Dublin’s art types and poets are what locals have been famed for, for generations.
So, I don’t know if this is supposed to be a criticism or not…
“Too packed with art types and poets”
