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. Jane was incredible! Her story telling style had us hanging on her every word. It was a cool, windy and rainy night that just added to the dramatic effect. The stories of the time were so interesting, I've a list of tabs open searching for more stories already. Was well worth the money and the rain, would absolutely do more tours with her if I had the opportunity.

Dr. Ennis was very friendly and informative. We enjoyed our tour immensely. Unfortunately, it was quite cold and rainy. We highly recommend this tour as it showed us a bit of Ireland that we would have otherwise missed out on. Thanks Dr. O'Brien!

Jane was great! Conveniently available, easy to meet. She has a deep knowledge of Ennis’ history and every place we stopped had gritty stories to take in. We did this at the beginning of our time there, and was a priceless choice!

This walking tour was part of my group’s multi-day trip to the West of Ireland. We had just arrived in Ennis and Jane did a great job walking us through Ennis, giving us historical and social background, and orienting us to the twisting streets of this charming town, all while dealing with a cloudburst. Recommended.

Our tour was with Dr Jane O'Brien. She was very engaging. She shared some interesting stories about Ennis and some of the residents from many years past. We truly enjoyed the walk around the town with Jane. She has an obvious love for Ennis and Ireland that came out in her stories. I would recommend a tour with Jane if you find yourself in Ennis.

Dr O'Brien included my interest in sculpture and other public art and history/stories about women into the tour. She was engaging and knowledgeable without being stiff.
I was short on time and without a car.
I contacted her on a Saturday morning and she arranged to meet me that afternoon.
Afterward, on her recommendation, I caught a fantastic trad music session at a friendly local pub.
Jane opened my eyes to the depth, history and heart of County Clare.
