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.

I cannot say enough positive things about our amazing time in Ireland with Ian! He was extremely organized, flexible, and recommended activities that we would have simply not known about without his expertise. Ian was professional yet extremely approachable and personable. He was full of interesting facts and hilarious stories that kept our large family group engaged and entertained as we made our way between different cities and sites. He was wonderful with our three small children, and made sure to incorporate activities that they would enjoy, while also catering to the adults' interests. I just asked our 5 and 7 years olds what they thought of our time with Ian and they said (and I quote): "He was the best tour guide we've ever had!" and "He was super nice and funny." We are so thankful for our experiences with Ian and will treasure the memories for a lifetime!

We just finished a wonderful day out exploring the Dingle peninsula with Ian. Ian is a great guide - professional, helpful, courteous, fun and very, very knowledgeable. He showed us areas of the peninsula that we would never have found ourselves, covering the history, architecture and people of the area and Ireland in great depth. He clearly loves Ireland, and is especially fond, and rightfully proud, of the area where he grew up - the Dingle peninsula. We can wholeheartedly recommend Ian to any person or group wanting to tour this area, or Ireland in general.

We recently completed a 10-day tour with Elegant Dingle Tours and thoroughly enjoyed each day. The group was large, and multi-generational which created its own challenges. Ian was flexible and responsive to those needs, taking special care to provide entertainment for the small children without sacrificing the interests of the adults. His humor and stories kept us entertained on the van rides between stops, and the recommendations for dinner (and assistance with getting a reservation on the Bank Holiday weekend) were invaluable. I would highly recommend his services for a trouble-free tour around this beautiful island!!

It’s all been said in the comments below, but it’s all true! Ian is a fantastic tour guide in every sense! He took on the daunting task of helping our multigenerational group of 14 family members enjoy a trip to Ireland - and of sending us all home again with our relationships still intact! And he did it!!!! Ian was organized, knowledgeable, and amiable. He was very attentive to everyone’s different needs and interests. He offered countless suggestions to help us plan an itinerary that was well-paced and varied enough to keep kids and adults engaged and happy, and he was flexible and adapted easily to changes as they arose. He graciously helped herd us cats through each day with infinite patience and plenty of jokes. His knowledge and stories helped us better understand and appreciate the areas we visited, and he readily fielded our many questions as he drove. In all, this family trip proved to be an incredible opportunity, and much of that was thanks to Ian’s knowledge, recommendations, support, and presence. We feel fortunate to have been able to travel with him! Go raibh míle maith agat!!

Ian Moriarty was such a knowledgeable and energetic guide when we traveled for our 20th wedding anniversary. He took us through Killarney National Forest, up the Gap of Dunloe, around the Dingle Peninsula and up to Galway over the course of two days. Conversation was easy, enlightening and funny. He knew how to avoid the crowds. We barely saw a bus. He built special touches into an itinerary that blended our requests with the trodden path of a true local expert. We even poured our own pint at a pub, and Ian secured us last-minute reservations at the best seafood restaurant in Dingle. As an increasingly rare true Irish speaker, he brought a historical heft and even a few language lessons to the tour. And he provided the rules of the road and confidence to my wife that she would be able to take the wheel in our rented car later in the trip. Not only would we recommend Ian to anyone who’s traveling to Ireland, we’d enthusiastically welcome Ian and his family into our home next time he makes it to the States. Thanks, Ian!

This was our second golf tour with Ian and he is the best. Takes care of every detail from making sure we always have water before playing golf - and some stronger drinks when we’re finished😊. He knows all the best places to eat and is a very safe driver. Can’t wait to go back on 2024

Our family took a tour of Ireland in late May of this year and had a wonderful Ireland experience and tour. Ian went way above and beyond to cater to the needs of our group ranging in age from 10 to well into the 70's. Ian was always punctual, energetic, knowledgeable, and flexible. I rarely make the time to leave recommendations but the quality of his service demands it.

We first were introduced to Ian during a 3 generations family trip in 2019. At that time, he was driving/guiding for another company. He was fantastic, catering to everyone's needs and able to connect with all - teens, middle generation, and elderly alike. We stayed in touch and my wife and I just returned from a 10-day trip (Sept-Oct 2022) having hired Ian again, now owning his tour guide business, because of that great first experience. This 2nd trip was amazing as well because of his service - showing the normal sites, but also introducing us to off-the-beaten-path sites that only a dedicated professional knows about. He knows where to stay, where to eat, where to catch music, dancing, etc. He has great attention to detail planning out the whole trip but taking care to not overload it, and his wisdom of the sites and their significance, and just overall grasp of Irish history, I'd put up against anyone else! We will refer Ian to anyone that asks about touring Ireland and we will hire him again ourselves when we go back!

We booked a private half-day tour for 5 of us around the Slea Head peninsula. The company was recommended to us by Bernie at the Bambury Guesthouse.

It was one of the best decisions we made during our 10 days in Ireland. After driving on enough narrow roads for a while, it was great to have Tristan doing it. Plus, it rained all day. Tristan took us down some side trips which we would never attempted ourselves, including up to Conor Pass. Tristan kept us entertained and well-informed, being a local to the area.

Our family spent a week with Ian in May and our expectations were truly exceeded. We were in Ireland for a golf vacation and Ian managed to show us so many incredible sights that we absolutely would have missed on our own! Each day was perfectly planned and we never had to worry or rush to any of the courses. For the popular attractions, he managed to arrive at times we had the places to ourselves, no large tours or crowds! He thought of everything - even told us the best spots for all our shopping and dining and pulled some strings to get my mom and I into the fully booked Adare Manor Spa! It was the most enjoyable week being able to relax as we were shown beautiful Ireland. We cannot wait to plan another visit with him. Thank you Ian for getting us around so comfortably and safety! A week we won’t forget!
