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.

Highly recommend for anyone, wanting to learn more history about Sligo, I had no idea how much history was here, even some of the battles that went down. And the ties to Dracula. The tour guide was absolutely incredibly knowledgeable, I would also recommend this for anyone who lives in Sligo. As even my bed-and-breakfast host did not know about all of the history, and said she herself wanted to go. I will say that you have to be able to stand on your feet and walk a little bit of distance, so this probably wouldn’t be good for someone elderly and less they were in a wheelchair. But either way, I am more than confident that they could be accommodated in someway.

There is not enough stars on this app to rate the excellence of this tour. I never experienced such an amazing guided tour of Sligo. Melissa is such a passionate guide and a wonderful human being, she gave me a private tour for almost 3 hours ! And time just flew quickly as all her stories were so deeply fascinating.
This tour was the most amazing I had in my whole life, I can’t recommend this enough. Melissa definitely knows how to bring the past back to life ! Just brilliant thank you so much ❤️💫
