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.

Where do I begin? This was our second time to Ireland and the first for our friends who we were traveling with. My husband and I knew how beautiful the countryside was and couldn't wait for our friends to get to experience all that this beautiful country has to offer. Boy did we hit the jackpot by having Jimmy guide us! Jimmy could answer any question we had. He is a wealth of knowledge on history, politics and anything Irish. Not only that, he made us feel as though we were family. When we wanted to add on to or divert from our plan; Jimmy was so amenable. Without him, we would never have been able to do and see half of what we experienced. Jimmy knows all the nooks and crannies in this gem of a country. And boy can this man tell a story. The legends surrounding the history of this country, for example Giants Causeway; he shared with us and I felt like a child listening to my grandfather in front of a fire place. I would HIGHLY recommend seeing Ireland with Exclusive Tours! Don't miss out on learning and seeing this country in a fun and relaxed way. Even if you know you can drive on "the other side of the road": especially then.

Jimmy Mulrooney is such an exceptional tour guide. We have gone on many tours in different places and yet Jimmy stands out as truly the best. His knowledge of everything Ireland is endless and more than that, he makes it interesting. Jimmy is a master story teller, and he is genuinely funny. He made suggestions and stopped at places that we would never think to visit or find in a guide book. Stunning places. He made calls to see when we could fit in a site or experience we wanted to have and even made dinner reservations for us. Our itinerary planned before our trip paled in comparison to the additions Jimmy made after he consulted with us about our interests and timing. We spent 2 full, magnificent days with him and learned so much as he immersed us in the history, culture, and beauty of Ireland. We are so grateful!

My husband and I just got back from an eight day tour of Ireland with Jimmy Mulrooney. Jimmy is an exceptional tour guide who goes out of his way to make sure everything on your trip is perfect. We saw and did so much more in Ireland with him than we would have had we planned the trip on our own. He recommended great restaurants and places to visit. He has a wealth of information on Irish history and culture. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Ireland and would highly recommend Jimmy for your tour.

We just finished a fantastic tour with Exclusive Tours Ireland. Jimmy created a custom 10 day tour for our group of 5 adults. Everything was exceptional. The tour was well planned and organized. We were able to enjoy all the sights in comfort without worrying about driving. In addition to seeing so many amazing sights, we learned so much. Jimmy has extensive knowledge of Ireland history and geography. He accommodated everyone’s interests. Jimmy is an excellent guide and took us to many hidden gems of Ireland. I highly recommend this company and look forward to my next trip with them!

We had an amazing time with our tour guide, Jimmy. He made our trip an experience of a lifetime. Dad wanted to return to Ireland where he spent several years of his childhood before his father passed. Our trip was dedicated to finding family roots, seeing the farmland, blessing my grandfather’s burial plot in Moville, stopping by MCDAIDS pub, seeing several historical places, in Dublin, Ulster, Derry Londonderry, and Moville. Jimmy was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his country and its history. He made us feel like we were part of his family and shared many stories and jokes along the way. He also gave us great recommendations for food, drinks and entertainment. (Breakfast at the Brewbaker Café was very entertaining 😊) Our trip was very well planned; every aspect was personalized. Jimmy kept us on schedule throughout the trip. He was also flexible and adaptable when we had to modify our plans due to events such as the US president visiting Ireland and weather conditions. He always made sure we had a good time and a comfortable stay. We highly recommend travelling with Jimmy for anyone who wants to experience the best of Ireland with a friendly and professional guide. We all enjoyed our time together and we are very grateful for his guidance, expertise and of course the laughter.

Five stars are not enough!! Jimmy Mulrooney was our guide for a 15 day all Ireland tour. He was amazing!! So knowledgeable about the places we visited and very quickly identified what our interests were and offered modifications to the itinerary that enhanced our trip and made it more memorable. 15 days is a long time to spend with a group, but he never stopped finding engaging conversation topics or sharing his vast wealth of knowledge. Jimmy even taught us some Irish language and quizzed us as we traveled throughout Ireland. He is funny and personable and really wants visitors to embrace the wonderful Irish culture and heritage. His passion for his country is obvious and contagious. Future tour guides have a lot to live up to for us! Any future visits to Ireland will certainly with Jimmy. Slainte!!

We visited the Boyne Valley in Ireland with Jimmy Mulrooney of Exclusive Tours Ireland. Jimmy brought it all to life. He has a Master's Degree in Irish Mythology and was very knowledgeable. He could answer all our questions and we learned a lot. We visited New Grange, Dowth, and the Hill of Tara. We also visited the Skreen Church and Cross. We were so lucky to have Jimmy as our personal guide to this sacred area. We will always remember it because he made it so special and fascinating.

My wife and I utilized the services of Jimmy Mulrooney to guide us on a 12 day tour of Ireland in September of 2022. We did a complete circle of the country starting in Dublin, up north to Belfast, through Derry, Galway, Cork and back again to Dublin.

Jimmy has a deep and profound understanding of the complicated history of Ireland from prehistoric times to the Troubles, conflicts to independence and the current political situation. He is also extremely knowledgeable about the geography of Ireland and the many places that we visited. He kept us entertained with stories and anecdotes about Ireland and his experiences as a guide. We looked forward to meeting him every morning as we knew that each day would be an interesting and entertaining adventure.

Jimmy is extremely professional as a guide. He dresses well and his comfortable SUV is always spotless. He is punctual for every meeting. He was attentive to our needs as well as our wishes for breaks and changes to our itinerary as the weather required.

Jimmy planned most of our itinerary, determining where we should stop and the length of time that we should spend there, always sensitive to our wishes to spend more or less time at a particular site.

Jimmy recommended and booked restaurants for us during our trip and made changes when required. He supplied fresh drinking water in the car daily. Jimmy is a careful and expert driver. We felt completely safe with him as our driver and we had absolute faith in his ability to guide us around the fascinating country of Ireland.

If we ever have the opportunity to return to Ireland, we would certainly contact Jimmy to determine his availability. He is one of the best guides that we have utilized and we have utilized many during our travels around the world in the past.

What an amazing day we had and all thanks to Jimmy Mulrooney! It was a first visit for all of us and the decision to take a private tour to introduce us to the Dublin area was spot on! Jimmy has an endless knowledge of the historical monuments and buildings surrounding the city center as well as the greater Dublin area and it’s environs, using his background in history and political science to really provide that special something extra everyone seems to be searching for that makes a trip worthwhile. looking forward to booking a different trip on our return!

We had a fabulous tour with Jimmy! He is so knowledgeable, and willing to customize your tour. I had an interest in some family ancestor sites, and he was able to include them. My husband wanted some hiking, so that was included, too. Jimmy was able to tell us details about every place we toured, and also about places we didn't see. He knows Ireland!
