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.

What a surprise! What an experience. A must do when you are in Killarney: boat tour to Lord Brandon's cottage. From there on you can walk, bike, jaunting car or the boat back to Killarney.
Bur be on time when you made a reservation/payed, they will not wait.

This could rate as my favourite day out ever! Hubby and I took the boat both ways from Ross Castle to Lord Brandon's, and daughter walked from Lord B;s down to Kate Kearney's, we picked her up there. I cant believe we haven't done this before. It may be the first time , but it wont be the last.

AWESOME experience on the gap of Dunloe tour! The couple running it was incredible and went above and beyond. We booked direct through our hotel (The Lake Hotel), they picked us up there and returned us there after. Bus ride was easy, hike was beautiful (about 7 miles on a paved path), and boat tour was breathtaking. Highly recommend.

We - there were grandparents, parents, and two teenagers - took the boat across the lake after our tour of the Gap of Dunloe. Very informative and entertaining. We felt completely safe onboard and were thoroughly fascinated with the facts shared by the amusing and very experienced captain.

After ten years of owning a B&B in killarney and recommending this tour hundreds of times, our family finally got the chance to do this tour. Of course we only wanted to do the tour with the best guys in town. So hence we choose the O Donoghue family, the Dux. Thank you so much to them. We were a group of 9, ages 4 years to 40+. The patience and the enthusiasm from the Dux family was unbelievable. Being a local I didn't expect to learn anything. But the knowledge I learned from Donal dux regards to ecology to geography, history, environmental awareness etc was unbelievable. Also what a guy for the kids everyone got a chance to drive the boat for a photo op. He was exceptional with the kids. Actually unbelievable. We were blown away with his kindness. They absolutely loved it. We are steadily organizing the next trip now with other families.

The tour was way more informative than I expected. Their knowledge of the history and ecology of the land is mind blowing. The tour was filled with lots of laughter as well as nonstop information about the surrounding area. Such a beautiful way to spend the day. You’d be foolish not to go.

Wow, what a crew! Dux was Johnny-on-the-Spot in making sure we got where we needed to be without hardly a wait and was super informative on local hiking opportunities. Rory was a friendly and knowledgeable boat guide, making sure we were well cared for on our tour across the lakes. A kind and professional team that made it well worth the fare.

Walking the Gap of Dunloe with a boat ride back to Ross Park was a perfect vacation day for us. The “trail” is a 7 K paved road that is shared w hikers, bikers, jaunting cars and tourist cars. Walking it is experiencing the weather and beauty of Ireland , and the boat ride back with story-telling Bob continued the experience. Bring a raincoat if the forecast is at all iffy. To complement the tour and understand how walking is a part of life in Ireland , read This Is Happiness by Niall Williams:)
