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.

Just got back from a few days with Iain, we stayed in Caoimhe and Iains air bnb and it was the most relaxing stay we've had in a long time. My husband went rock climbing with Iain and came back absolutely delighted and is now excited for his next trip! Thank you Iain, we will see you again soon!

My partner and I booked a few days with Iain and were looking forward to them for a very very long time. And for good reason! These were very easily the best days of our whole holiday.

Iain took us to wild beautiful spots of Donegal and got us on some lovely adventures including climbing sea-stacks, kayaking, going along a ridge and hopping in and out of a little dingy. We had the best time, full of fun and great to spend time with Iain to.

Next time we are in Ireland there is no doubt we will be asking Iain to take us on another adventure. His knowledge and skill level allow you to feel safe and enjoy the moment. We really had some "Unique Assents".

Thank you Iain :)

It was amazing and exciting following Iain around Cruit island, which he clearly knew inside out. We really enjoyed his approach at teaching us and building our confidence as beginners, climbing on unknown rocks, in a windy and slightly wet weather, standing just above the rising tide with waves crashing just a few feet away from us. It was all about building independence in decision making and how to enjoy the best of any new climbing place we’d go to in future. There couldn’t have been a more rewarding day for us after a bit more than a year committed to building up rock climbing skills.

We had a wonderful experience climbing up the sea stack in Donegal. Definitely a wonderful adventure for all the family to enjoy! Iain was our fantastic instructor - he made us feel very safe, encouraged us through the climbs and was great craic all round. Would definitely go back a do again with the rest of the family.

Fantastic day climbing, highly recommend. He’s such a wealth of experience and incredibly patient in explaining everything to keep the session safe, challenging and most importantly, great craic! The location was incredible, and there is a huge range of routes to suit all abilities. Left with new skills, and will definitely be back! Thanks a million Iain!

Fun routes, incredible views, great company chatting with Iain about the area, the Irish culture, and local climbing culture. He was prepared with gear, knowledge, and fun personality! He took and shared great photos as well. The weather was perfect and we climbed in an iconic area with views of the sea and Errigal.
