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.

Thank you for your very flattering and wonderful Review. I really enjoyed showing you the Ring of Kerry and the many hidden gems which are to be found on the Skellig Ring which is the true feel of Ireland in the depths of South Kerry, so glad you enjoyed the day and look forward to meeting you again in the future.

Ray was by far one of the best tour guides we have ever had. We added a fourth person to our Ring of Kerry tour so Mary passed us on to Ray who drove our family around in a comfortable mini van. His knowledge of history and his anecdotes about people were wonderful. The day was filled with prehistoric tetrapods, medieval forts, learning about peat, castle ruins, and incredible Irish natural beauty. We were sad to leave Killarney but thanks to Ray, we look forward to returning to learn more.

Ray and Mary did a wonderful job of understanding what we were looking for and going the extra mile to deliver. What a fantastic day of learning, exploring, having fun while all the time seeing the gorgeous countryside. If afforded the opportunity to return to Ireland I will definitely use them again!!

We had a marvelous time exploring Killarney with Ray. He picked us up at Shannon airport (with a sign) and we immediately felt comfortable and excited for our journey. We saw the Gap of Dunloe and Killarney national park, did a Ring of Kerry tour (including great spots off of the typical path), and went to Galway stopping at some great places along the way. Ray was incredibly accommodating and always willing to lend a helping hand. The van was large and comfortable. Ray knew so much information and shared a lot of it with us (he was able to answer every question no matter how obscure) and provided great recommendations. There is no better way to see this area than to do so with Ray and Mary!

We spent two days with Mary. She was a great guide. She took us to some of the Of the way places that were beautiful. She quickly got a good sense of what we liked and what we didn’t and adjusted the tour accordingly. She provided us with great local restaurant recommendations and advice about how to spend the rest of our time in County Kerry. She drives well on difficult roads and is a fun person to be with. You cannot do much better

Ray was absolutely incredible! He was so knowledgeable. We had such a great time talking with him along our tour of the Ring of Kerry one day and the Slea Head the next day. I wish I would have booked him for our entire trip! This is the BEST way to see Ireland, especially Ring of Kerry and Slea Head. We didn't have to worry about driving and Ray took care of everything (including where we should eat lunch)! He had great suggestions for the rest of our trip. I cannot recommend him enough!

Thanks to Ray for a wonderful trip, first by boat in the Lakes of killarney and then through a part of the Kerry way past Torc mountain. We knew nothing of the area when we first arrived, so we decided to try out a guided tour. And boy oh boy, was it good! Originally our tour was planned for a friday. However the weather forecast promised rain, so Ray actually called us and we resceduled for thursday instead. During the tour we got lots of information about the history of the areas we went through, and also a lot of inside knowledge about the lay of the land. It motivated us so much, that we are already planning to come back next year and do the entire ring of kerry. We feel very comfortable with the thought now, and it's only because Ray was such an amazing guide. So thank you both Ray and Mary for an amazing day in killarney. Lots og love from the Vikings!

Thank you for your very kind and thoughtful review of your recent boat trip and hike through the Lakes of Killarney & National Park with me. It was a great day and thoroughly enjoyable, you were both great company and I hope you had a good day on the following day when you revisited the Killarney National Park. The Vikings will always be welcome in Killarney! Bye for now. Ray.

Ray and Mary Walsh came highly recommended by a good friend, we were delighted to have such a great recommendation. Our family, six adults, toured Ireland for one week. This being our first trip, one that we have talked about for quite some time, we wanted to have the best experience possible. Upon meeting Ray at the Dublin airport, we immediately felt his warmth, and it was evident that we were going to have one special week in Ireland.

We contacted Ray last year, to book our trip, and ask for his guidance in planning an itinerary. He is very responsive to emails and he quickly responded with a tentative touring itinerary which was just perfect. My husband wanted to play a couple of rounds of golf, Ray suggested a few courses and tee times and worked that into the itinerary. A golfer himself, Ray was knowledgeable about the various courses - a definite plus!

We toured Galway, Clonmacnoise, Connemara, The Cliffs of Moher, The Burren National Park, Killarney, The Dingle Peninsula, Slea Head, Ring of Kerry, Skillig, Valentia Island, Blarney Castle, Kinsale, Cahir Castle, Rock of Casher, our tour ended in Dublin.

We toured the countryside in Ray's beautiful, comfortable touring van while listening to Irish music, so fun! His van comfortably seats seven, with plenty of room for luggage and golf clubs. Ray's van was always in pristine condition, easy to spend the day in while touring. Ray is extremely punctual, each day was full, but always at a very relaxing pace. He planned for stops for coffee, knew where the best lunch spots were and knew how to avoid the tour buses.! Ray knew the "hidden gems" we particularly enjoyed The Perfumery in The Burren and "The Quiet Man" Bridge.

Ray truly took care of us, giving us a run-down of the best restaurants, and pubs in each city. We celebrated my husband's birthday while in Killarney and I asked Ray for a recommendation for dinner. He personally called the restaurant and made dinner reservations for us. All of his recommendations were spot on, we always told him that he never steered us wrong!

Ray's vast knowledge of history, the local culture and customs is amazing. From ancient Irish history to modern day Irish music and artists, he is a wealth of knowledge. He would carefully listen to our questions, and always address us by name when answering, such a nice touch!

Ray Walsh knows a lot of people! From hotel and B&B owners to a local sheep herder, museum guides and several others along the way, it was evident that Ray's warm nature fosters genuine relationships.

One week with Ray Walsh was phenomenal, it couldn't have been any better. Our family vacation was a dream come true. We became quite attached to Ray, and honestly we were very sad to say good bye in Dublin.

Without a doubt we would highly recommend Walk With Me - Ray and Mary Walsh!
