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.

A most enjoyable experience. We were looked after exceptionally well by our guide who was very knowledgeable on the local history and landmarks. We were entertained by a mix of knowledge and wit, which made the entire experience one we will always remember.
I have no hesitation in highly recommending this company for your trip around the world famous Lakes of Killarney

I visited Killarney this past weekend and ended up taking this boat trip and I must say it was one of the highlights of the whole weekend. Not only did we have fantastic weather but also our guide, Mike, was extremely knowledgeable about the area and wasn't afraid to crack a few jokes along the way. Not having much prior knowledge of Killarney I was shocked to see how beautiful the area is and I cannot wait to visit again.

A big thank you to Mike and I would highly recommend booking this tour if you find yourself in Killarney.

We had a lovely boat trip on Lough Leane and Muckross Lake yesterday evening. We saw Dinis cottage, the meeting of the waters, Inishfallen Island, Glena cottage, as well as all of the mountains. The lake was amazing and we had perfect weather for our trip.

Mike, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the local history, as well as the local wildlife. There were plenty of jokes throughout our trip also. We were blown away by the scenery and the hospitality.

I would highly recommend the trip for groups of friends or family. It is a very unique way to see Killarney!

10/10 - very professional and enjoyable tour.

As a big family group of 30+ we were at first surprised to see 3 little boats for our big crew. As soon as we stepped on board with our captain Mike, we knew we were in for a fantastic trip. Mike was full of knowledge, jokes, tales and overall friendliness throughout the whole journey. We saw the most spectacular views of the lakes and mountains of Killarney that you would not get elsewhere. It was most definitely the highlight of our family weekend in Killarney and I personally will be returning to join the boat tour again! Highly recommended, 10/10.
