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 fabulous boat trip with lots of information and jokes along the way, beautiful scenery and views of the Kilkenny Castle, nice wildlife, swans, cygnets and a heron didn't see the otters. Would recommend highly it was something different to do.

Many thanks for those very kind words. It's great to hear you enjoyed it so much. There is some fantastic wildlife to see along the way. My favourite days are the wet, misty or rainy days. Always find these best for the others and the spotting wildlife going about their daily chores. Many thanks again for the 5 star review. Much appreciated. Cliff
