11 very Irish restaurant and takeaway reviews

“Garlic dip was muck.”

WE ALL CONSULT the likes of TripAdvisor, Just-Eat.ie and Yelp before making decisions about where to eat, drink or stay now.

Some reviews are helpful, some are legitimately insane and some are just meh.

And some? Some are just extremely Irish.

1. “Bathroom near the door”
