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.

We had a fantastic afternoon kayaking in Courtmacsherry and playing on the water trampoline. Kids definitely want to come back!

Declan and all of the team at Gecko were amazing. My 2 kids, Fionn & Oisin, loved their week of summer camp with Gecko and cant wait to do it again next year. Highly recommended.

Great time kayaking with my 7 year old son. Leona, Jonathan and Luca looked after us as a group. They always checked in to make sure all were ok. Sea was perfect around the coast and the views were amazing. Definitely recommend. We will be back again. Highlight of our adventure weekend 👍 Thanks guys

We brought our 4 kids aged 5,9,11 & 14 on the 2 hour kayak tour. There were two other families on the tour. I brought the two younger ones in a triple kayak and the others were in singles. Tough going heading out of the bay towards the sea caves but there was a welcome rest on a small beach on the way. Our youngest found the waves a bit unsettling and was very upset in the cave as it was far too small for the amount of people/kayaks in there. The way back was a completely different experience as we were paddling with the tide and the wind had died down. Overall an enjoyable experience but I would do a shorter tour with younger children.

These guys have gone out of their way in helping us plan a super activity evening for an upcoming hen weekend, nothing seemed too much trouble for them! Fantastic communication via email, easy to pay our deposit even from abroad. I would really recommend them if you are planning a group activity on the Cork coastline. Thank you!

Professional setup with quality gear. Some were afraid it was more than we could handle but once we got underway it was easy. Went into to the many caves and saw beautiful scenery out at sea, saw a seal and some fish jump. Great experience with amazing views and worked up a big appetite.
Would go again!
