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.

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!

My husband and I just had a wonderful trip to Ireland. We contracted with Elegant Dingle Tours and it was the best decision we could have made. Ian Moriarty, our driver and tour guide was absolutely fabulous. We had been to Ireland several other times and always did our own driving. But this was the best way to go! We could see everything without worry! Ian also showed us so many special sights that we never knew about. His sense of humor and kindness was exceptional. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about this trip and highly recommend Ian and his company!

Slea Head Day Tour was fabulous. Jackie is knowledgeable and friendly. He directed the tour to our personal liking. I was even able to hold a lamb that was just days old. The van is clean and super comfortable. We enjoyed our tour and guide so much that the next day we hired them to take us from Dingle to Shannon. Tristan was our driver on this trip. He made this trip enjoyable and was even able to show us some sights along the scenic route of The Conor Pass. If you are real lucky he will sing an Irish tune! Highly recommend this company for any travel needs in Ireland!

Just returned from a three-week, whirlwind solo driving tour, planned by Elegant Dingle Tours, which included a two-day tour with Ian Moriarty at the wheel in the Dingle Peninsula area. My itinerary was jam-packed and flawlessly planned, down to the last detail. The sites were selected from my personal wish list but also included special treats tucked in here and there. The itinerary reflected accurate drive times, carefully selected accommodations based on my needs, suggested restaurants, and the best pubs with sessions for the evenings. It even included a couple of hot tips on how to get into locations normally one can’t get into. (shhh) At my request, I was even provided with petrol stations and restroom options along my route (I am an old lady and when you gotta, you gotta go). As a result, I was able to navigate Ireland on my own with confidence. I highly recommend doing this, especially with the assistance of Elegant Dingle Tours. The two-day driven portion with Ian Moriarty was simply perfection. Ian has a unique perspective on the Dingle area, having grown up there. Ian is extremely entertaining and insightful and knows where all the hidden treasures are located. He is also an enthusiastic historian so you are sure to learn a thing or two along the way. I can guarantee there will never be a dull moment when riding along with him. Elegant Dingle Tours is highly responsive to requests and will always do whatever it takes to provide you with the best experience possible.

I went on the Slea Head day tour with Tristan Moriarty and had a blast! It was so nice to get to see the sights without worrying about driving on the other side of the road. The scenery is just gorgeous. It's impossible to take a bad picture. Tristan is also so upbeat, energetic, and charismatic. I feel like I had the "true Irish experience" and can't wait to go back!
