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.

Dr. O’Brien is very engaging and knowledgeable. She really brought what were were seeing to life and gave excellent background and context to what we were seeing. I learned so much about Ennis (including what the name means and how to pronounce it) and came away with a list of places to explore in more detail. This was a great experience and I haughty recommend it.

Jane O'Brien is a city treasure herself. She led myself and my lady around the streets of Ennis so smoothly and with excellent narration of its histories. She was very accommodating as we had a late arrival after a tour in Galway, we were so grateful to have had the chance to meet and learn all we did from her. Thank you, Jane!

Jane was very welcoming and soon had the group relaxed. She was able to inform us about the various parts of the town we visited and to answer all the questions thrown at her. It was a fascinating insight into Ennis and an excellent introduction to the town and wider Irish history. Thank you.
