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.

The tour that we had to the ring of Kerry was wonderful. Our tour guide, John Todd, was really helpful. He explained thoroughly and clearly what to expect from the sightseeing, the historical context and gave us information to understand Ireland as a country. The bus part of the tour was a bit rushed some times but it helped that John signalled us throughout the tour where the sites and landmarks were coming up or located so we wouldn’t miss them. Overall, a very pleasant and comfortable experience! Would definitely recommend!

We saw some beautiful country on this tour, but Paddy (our tour guide) is the reason we give it a 5 out of 5. Meeting and spending time with him was one of the best memories made in Ireland. We are thankful for the time.

This was an amazing trip. The countryside was gorgeous and the travel was amazingly smooth. Brian was our guide and he was funny and interesting and took great care of us. I would recommend this outing for anyone.

Paddy was our awesome guide and we have a great trip! Beautiful sites, cool towns and a small group. Weather was a little dodgy at the end but that can in December in Ireland!

My wife and I were lucky enough to embark on the Ring of Kerry tour with our tour guide John. His enthusiasm in relaying information about the sites and stories of Irish culture was infectious. The views from the tour bus were beautiful and the stops were astounding. The trip was 14 hours but it only felt like a fraction of the time due to stunning Irish countryside and the company that shared in the experience. I highly recommend this tour and can not speak highly enough of our thoughtful tour guide.

My husband I booked the Giants Causeway tour and it was incredible! Definitely a must see if you’re visiting Ireland. We took amazing pictures and it was an experience we’ll never forget. Our tour guide, Paddy, was wonderful! He was with us for 13 hours and made the day so easy. He shared interesting Irish culture and history with us. He was very passionate, enthusiastic, and funny which made for a great day! Also making sure the entire group got into a taxi safely after the tour was over was greatly appreciated! Cannot recommend this company enough!

The train is definitely the way to go. The trip is LONG. We left at 7am and got back at 815. Tired and hungry. The museum in Cork took up too much time. We walked to town and found a pub.

Thanks for your review, we're delighted that you enjoyed the rail car-free care-free. Sorry it seems to have surprised you that the tour arrives back in Dublin at 20:15H as this is exactly how it's advertised on our website and there was no need to be hungry as there is catering on the Cork to Dublin return train. Kind Regards, Railtours Ireland

Last Tuesday we had a fantastic Irish Rail day tour (Ring of the Kerry) experience with our Rail tour guide Marathon legend John Todd. John has warmly welcomed us. I've got two of our relatives visiting from India. As usual, the Irish Rail tours are very well planned and best use of time & quality. Our tour guide John was the cherry on the cake.. a true Irish legend. He is not only a tour Guide but a great photographer as well. He has done ~13 Marathons in Ireland, London & Boston with a brilliant PB 02:39. It was an honor to meet such a great person with deep experience of Irish history & Northern Ireland. He shared every single detail with a map of our tour plan from train to bus, Killarney house & garden, and at the end Killarney city walking tour. During the bus ride, he entertained with his jokes, rich Irish culture, and relevant general knowledge of political and social systems. It was an awesome entire day with John and and the team. Would love to do more tours with John and Irish Rail 😊🌄🚄
