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.

Cairn (sorry for the spelling), was a fantastic guide. Very informative and kind. We ate great food and even went back to one of the choices for dinner (Seafood Cafe by Niall Sabongi). The fish and chips were the best!

Ann was amazing! Very knowledgeable and personable, and we learned so much about Irish culture and history in addition to food beer and whiskey. It was a fun experience worth braving the chilly rainy weather we had that day. Highly recommend this tour!

We (my sister and step-mum and I) had a private tour with Ann, who was a joy. It was a very cold windy winter day, but the sun was shining, and Ann informed us of the history of Dublin and various other stories as we walked through the north and south sides of town. For food, we started with potato cakes then learned how to make a proper Irish coffee. Snacks along the way were cheese and (separately) some oysters before a more hearty meal of stews and coddle. We ended with some local ice cream. We all fell in love with the dark brown soda bread with Irish butter! We had visited the Guinness factory the night before on our own (it was too commercial for us), but really wanted to visit the Teeling whiskey distillery after our outing with Ann. There was plenty of food, but it wasn't overwhelming. As we wanted some whiskey, Ann guided us to a lovely shop so we could buy some for our trip. We all highly recommend Ann and her tour!

Our food tour was outstanding since both the food and our guide were awesome. Ciaran was our tour guide and he was welcoming in a pleasant way…making us feel comfortable and getting to know us without it being intrusive. He was very knowledgeable about the central Dublin area and provided information about the history as we traveled from place to place. He also provided practical information about various places around town including advice about restaurants, places to shop, and other things that would be of interest to us. Of course we walked all over to different places to experience different food or drink and every stop Ciaran chose was fantastic. From Irish coffee that was like nothing I had ever tasted to potato cakes, to fish and chips, to a Guinness beef casserole to an amazing ice cream - all of it was delicious. The other great thing is that most of the places we would never have gone to because they were not typical tourist places. They seemed like places that locals go to. At the end of the tour we felt like had spend a special time sharing fun, food, and good conversation with Ciaran - and that we could not eat another bite. It definitely tops our list of things we did in Dublin.

Ciaran was our guide for the day’s food adventure. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Dublin as well as the food. He took us to some great places that are not on the tourist maps for places to go. I would highly recommend a tour with Ciaran.
