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.

We had a very good trip. The boat and crew were excellent. Wish we had seen more wildlife, but the scenery was beautiful. We will do this again.

Kenmare Bay Boat Tours are absolutely brilliant! We booked them for Day 2 of our wedding celebrations and they couldn't have been a friendlier, more accommodating business to deal with - every member of staff went out of their way to ensure everything went off without a hitch and we couldn't have asked for more. Would highly highly recommend! A highlight of our wedding weekend.

The pupils and staff of Scoil Fhiachna, Glengarriff has a wonderful day exploring Kenmare bay with Kenmare Bay Boat Tours. The boat was very spacious and the children got to move around freely. Pádraig our skipper showed the children the wheelhouse and some even got sing through the microphone! We were delighted to see the wild goats and horses grazing on the island! The children even received a treat on board.
A big thank you to David and Pádraig for a wonderful tour, who were so welcoming, we really enjoyed it!
We highly recommend the tour for schools!

Gorgeous morning out around Kenmare Bay. The views were amazing. Lovely to sea seals resting up on the rocks. We were even invited into the cabin to see how the boat operates. The skipper and tour guide were both extremely knowledgeable about the area. The staff were great craic and even offered blankets to keep warm against the cold wind ☺️

We went out on the Kenmare Bay tour for my sisters hen party and it was brilliant! Marguerite and Padraig were lovely to us and the craic started even prior to boarding. There was nine of us and my sister has the best memories from the day! She even got to sing a song on the mic and there was a great athmosphere on the boat with all of the other people. It was a really nice sunny day but there is lots of space indoors and outdoors making it a great option irregardless of the weather! Learnt a lot about the area as well as the owners are local.
