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.

Eamon was an incredibly charismatic and knowledgeable local Dubliner who tailored his tour fantastically to our group and made our day really enjoyable. He mixed the activities well to accommodate the different age ranges and really made an effort to chat and include everyone! His tour included many scenic parts of Ireland and local areas to Dublin, great local pubs, tourist sites, Irish music, good Guinness and top craic! Couldn’t recommend Eamon highly enough to a group that want to see more of Dublin with a friendly tour guide that knows a bunch about the Irish history and local area. Cheers for a great day Eamon, top lad even if he is a Liverpool fan…

Eammon was just fantastic. From the get go, he communicated well, was flexible, timely and a great guide. Living in Dublin, he started the tour information in a very conversational way talking us through a couple highlights on the way out of the city. Our tour was 7 people going to the Cliffs of Moher and Galway and back, with a stop in a traditional Irish pub for lunch. He played lots of different Irish music and discussed along the way, which was a great use of time and stopped to show us several other local and non-touristy stops along the way. He answered our questions, both historical and cultural, with great knowledge and was a delight to converse with. The van was very comfortable. Highly recommended!

Hi Casey, Thanks a million for the lovely review, it’s very motivating for me to hear such satisfaction. I really enjoyed our chats as we headed west to the cliffs and explored old Ireland. Thanks again, Eamonn

Our day with Eamonn was one of the highlights of our trip to Dublin! He bent over backward planning an itinerary that accommodated two parents, one 4 year-old, and one 20 year-old, and everyone had a great time! I highly recommend spending the day with him - he will customize for whatever you need!

Eamonn was fantastic. I saw and learned more about Ireland in a few days on this trip than I did on a 10 day trip a few years ago. Eamonn is a walking encyclopedia of Irish knowledge. I highly recommend using his services.

We were coming to Ireland as part of a tour bus company’s arranged 9 day itinerary. This tour, however, did not provide everything we wanted to see. So, we found Eamonn on Trip Advisor and hired him (out of Dublin) as a private guide for the 2 days before we met up with the tour group. It was a perfect pairing as Eamonn knows his Irish history, and enjoys history as much as we do. On day one, we went to Belfast and he recommended a “black cab” tour about “the troubles.” So interesting and fascinating. We also had a perfect day to tour Dunluce Castle and to see the Giants Causeway in N. Ireland. Eamonn arranged lunch and dinner in 2 quaint pubs and it was just a wonderful day.

Day 2 we went to a sheep farm and watched the Border Collies work the sheep, and learned from the shepherd how they are trained. Simply amazing! We also visited an old monastery and saw countryside of heather and bogs. Another great lunch and Eamonn had us back in time to meet up with the tour group. Time in the car was spent discussing Irish history and learning more about the people and lands. I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed these 2 days except to say my husband and I agreed it was our favorite of the time we spent in Ireland. Eamonn went at our pace throughout both days and was just an interesting guide. He will share as much or as little as you want, but he soon pegged us as history lovers, and alll the interaction made the trip super special! Highly recommend.

Hi Carolyn & Tim and I would really like to say thanks a million for going to such trouble in writing a terrifically detailed and beautiful review. It was a special two days for me too as I very much enjoyed our unfolding adventures up to the north coast and also into Wicklow national park to see the sheepdogs and our chats about Irish history were fantastic and kept the energy up! Thanks again, Eamonn

We had a wonderful day filled with pure adventure! We enjoyed seeing the countryside and learning about the history of Ireland! The kids enjoyed the sheep herding, an outdoor maze and running around the lakes. Lunch was delicious as well. Thank you for such an enjoyable day!

We spent three, exciting and full days with Eamonn exploring Dublin city, the Irish countryside, and Cliffs of Moher. We came to him with only a vague sense of an itinerary, and he was was more than happy to plan it all. He took time to ask questions and get to know us to specifically customize our trip to be especially meaningful and memorable. And he succeeded!

Throughout the three days, he supplied history with modern context, cultural traditions, and personal anecdotes. The vehicle was supremely clean and comfortable. (There were even chocolates!) Truly, at no point in the three days did we want for anything. He made certain we were always taken care of.

Whether you have a list of must-do activities or you are looking for an expert to show you their country, I recommend Eammon wholeheartedly. Not only for the above-and-beyond service - which made it so we could truly enjoy our vacation and not worry about the logistics - but also because he is a genuinely wholesome person.

I traveled with my wife and two other couples to Ireland for ten days, eight of which were with ChaperoneVIP Private Tours and Eamonn. We couldn't have asked for a more informative and entertaining vacation. From the moment Eamonn picked us up at the airport to the time he dropped us off, we had so many laughs and incredible experiences. The tours were unique and exactly what we were looking for out of our trip. So thoughtful and well organized from start to finish. Eamonn may have started off as our tour guide, but ended up as our friend. Loved every minute.
