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.

My wife and I went on a 10-day trip to Ireland in December 2023. We had 4 days in Dublin, that were delightful. Then we were picked up by Ciaran Commins, who drove us to Galway, took us on a day-long excursion to the islands, and then on another day to the Cliffs of Mohr. After that, he drove us back to Dublin to catch our plane home. He was an outstanding driver, and a high point of the trip was talking to him about his life, his work, his family, and everything he was doing. It gave us a better sense of Ireland, and enhanced all that we did. We recommend him most highly.

Second time doing this trip. Weather was good. Staff very friendly. Saw lots of birds of various species. Dolphins accompanied the boat around Howth Head. Dined afterwards in the Our House which is one of the many good restaurants on Howth Pier. I would highly recommend this trip

For anyone wishing to capture stunning views of Dublin with unique angles only possible from a boat, this tour is the ideal way to do so. We were blessed with great weather as well, although the waves were a bit choppy. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly.

We did the cruise from Howth to Dun Laoghaire today - the cruise should have been cancelled and refunds given. The rain was coming down and it was pretty obvious that sightseeing from the boat would be impossible. Many bored children racing around the boat - commentary was so low we could not hear a thing that was said. What is the point of saying that you are being taken on a harbour cruise when you are just taken directly from Howth to Dun Laoghaire in mist? An expensive ride from Howth to Dun Laoghaire - not to be repeated.
