Irish referenda require an independent commission chaired by a senior member of the judiciary to provide factual information on the topic being considered as well as providing corrections in situations where either side provides "alternative facts".

There is also a legal process by which any citizen can take an action to the Supreme Court to have the outcome of a referendum overturned. If they believe there was an issue with the process.

I cannot recall a single case where there was widespread concern over the referendum process.
In Ireland, the process may be good but they have a problems with the topics. For example, the referendum about a woman's place in the home.
