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.

Kinvara is an arty, lively small village with its Friday summer market featuring music ranging from gypsy guitar, Trad to jazz and its small gallery nearby which features local artists. The hub of this village, however, is its pristine harbor. One can easily imagine the turf boats of yesteryear arriving with Dungaire castle across the bay as a backdrop. In fact, each August, the village sponsors the Cruinniu na mBad festival which unabashedly celebrates sailing of the beautiful Galway hooker turf boats, seaweed raft races, swimming contests, music and art, all related to seafaring life in this locality. It’s a very local festival and on a relativly small scale but an outsider like myself instantly felt welcome and learned much about local traditions. It’s truly a a view apart from cliche Irish tourism.

Even when not in festival mode, this quaint harbor offers a lovely opportunity to sit and enjoy an aspect of the wild Atlantic way.

This is an astonishing place to visit on the west coast of Ireland.
It is absolutely breathtaking and the views are worth the visit. It feels that you are travelling to a different world

Nice little harbour with some old boats when we visited. nice views. Not worth a detour, but just a stop when you drive from Galway to Moher

Kinvara is a lovely place. The Harbour is central to the town ad offers a nice view of boats in the harbor as well as Dunguaire Castle. Fantastic for photos

The harbour is pretty, especially in the sunshine and when the tide is in. Lots of options for coffee etc, on the way to the Burren

What a natural amenity. Absolutely beautiful place - even with the tide far out. The Irish Tourist board really needs to develop all these fantastic sea-faring villages and towns dotted on the Irish coast. The Wild Atlantic Way will prove a great addition to the town's appeal - but Governmental help would ensure a great future for this jewel in the Irish seaboard's crown.

Lovely little harbor on the west coast of Ireland, not too far from Galway. Very picturesque, especially when the tide is out and the boats that are docked are resting on the muddy bottom!

Spent time relaxing whilst overlooking the harbour. Very quit harbour with little activity. Watched the crows find mussels and drop them in flight to break them open.

Nice and refined environment. friendly and kind service typically Irish. The girls' smile brings the sun even on rainy days. we tasted the best espresso drunk in Ireland, even better than many of our Italian coffees. a pleasant visit that leaves us a beautiful recollection. to be advised absolutely.
