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.

Henry Doohan is the consummate tour guide. Friendly, informative, funny, thoughtful. Think of him as the best “friend of a friend” imaginable. Sharing his van for a day was delightful from start to finish. We selected the Inishowen Peninsula Tour, Option C and visited Grianán of Aileach, Fort Dunree, Mamore Gap, Malin Head and Doane Famine Village. With Henry as our guide we learned the context of what we saw and experienced. The Doane Famine Village was a particular delight as it included a “live” wake, bringing out many Irish celebrating and remembering this custom with customary poitín, served in a small plastic glass. Hoo-ha! Very refreshing to visit a living demonstration village that is family-run and deliberately so. Just driving through Ireland’s countryside was worth every minute. As we departed Derry by train, we visited with an Irish gentleman across the aisle and spoke of our tour through the Inishowen Peninsula. His eyebrows were raised in surprise and delight as he remarked that few tourists visit that area. Exactly!

Henry is a godsend to people like us who don't like to drive on holidays. With public transport almost non-existent on Inishowen, his service is much appreciated. We had a lovely day with him. Would recommend to anybody who prefer scenery to the dashboard on their holidays.

Seeing the north of Ireland through Henry’s eyes was amazing. We knew very little about this magical place and he took us to see the most wonderful things - like Malin Head and the Dough Famine Village. He also escorted us to other parts of the west and north of Ireland, giving us a friendly and delightful trip. We are all cooks as well and we were consistently taken to places where we had memorable, scrumptious meals. I highly recommend his services!

We booked three tours from Henry (Inishowen, Fanad and South Donegal). During these days we saw a lot of beautiful places. Henry is a knowing guide and nice and pleasant person. His car is very comfortable and cozy. Henry adjusts to the client's tastes. Thanks to him we not only saw a lot of interesting places, but also had a good rest.

We had an excellent trip with Henry Doohan. He picked us up in Dublin and drove us all the way to Malin, Donegal. Four hours there on Friday and four hours back on Sunday. He drove different routes there and back and showed us the beautiful scenery of Ireland. He was such a great guy!! I would definitely recommend Henry in a heartbeat! He made the trip so enjoyable!!

We made the wise decision to experience a private all day tour of Donegal, with Henry Doohan, a well trained tour guide with a beautiful, comfortable van. Our party of four adults enjoyed a road trip without stress or distraction: A TRULY GREAT DECISION! Henry picked us up at our B&B and drove us to some amazing sites in Donegal including an ancient Stone Circle at Grianan Of Aileach, a Famine Village cultural site, and on up to Malin Head. We have visited Ireland at least a dozen times and have driven many roads, seen various sites, studied maps and followed GPS. Our decision to allow Henry to guide us for a day without stress was truly the highlight of this visit. Henry has a wealth of historical information that he shares willingly with a FUN ATTITUDE. He is a sincere professional who cares about his clients. Henry strives to give his guests a unique experience discovering Ireland. We only wish we spent a few more days with him: Next Time!

if you want to experience the true the real irish vacation go with DONEGAL TOUR GUIDE by HENRY DOOHAN he is more than a tour guide he is like your best friend who you have not seen in a long time. He will talk to you and show you the real ireland not the tourist ireland you read or heard about. He will pick you up at the airport and take you to DONEGAL. This is a private tour just you and him and to experience the true irish countryside will take two or three tours. You will go home with memories that will last you a lifetime

As a group of friends on business, in Letterkenny Ireland looking for something to do. We came across this wonderful private day tour. What a great adventure for us to do on a Saturday. Henry, was the best guide! So, friendly and knowledgeable. We went to Malin Head, Fort Dunree, Dough Famin Village and other sights of interest. The day started out great and just got better as we went along. Henry, stopped when we wanted to stop. We never felt rushed anywhere we went. He went above and beyond fir us. I had my first hot whiskey at his recommendation...delicious! He stopped for me to get pics at a very old cemetery, the views were breathtaking. We stopped fir a very nice lunch, he sat with us sharing more local information. The man heard us talking about Donegal wool, he asked if we would like to stop at a shop. They specialize in all hand made merchandise. It was fabulous!! The man even went out of his way to find me Pepsi. Not an easy task in Irish north. His van was clean, his driving made me feel comfortable and safe. I would recommend touring with Henry for all of your Donegal trips.

My co workers and I went on the inishowen private tour with Henry. Henry was an amazing tour guide. He was prompt to pick us up in a clean great working van. Went on numerous stops and extra stops along the way to make my experience a life long memorable one. Henry takes the time to get to know his customers to make a personal experience. I can’t recommend Henry enough. What a great time.
