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 are so thankful to Ocean Addicts and highly recommend them. Anne, Graham, and their team were kind, patient, and professional. Took us out on our first cold water dive after several years off from diving. The views from the water were absolutely beautiful. We were both a bit over eager/ambitious (my husband got cold and I panicked at the beginning when I forgot how to breathe, and at the end when my regulator flooded with water), but the team was incredibly patient with us and made the experience worth it. 10/10- would do it again and absolutely would take a skills course with this team if we had the chance. Saw some cool sea life, such as massive crabs and starfish.

Anne and Graham taught me and my girlfriend to scuba dive and gain our PADI Open Water qualification. I would absolutely reccomend to anyone- the pair of them are very patient, have incredible knowledge and will make you feel completely at ease in the water.
I loved both our pool sessions and then subsequent sea dives, and real safe to dive elsewhere abroad now- it is abundantly clear Anne and Graham want to teach you correctly and safely, and if this requires additional tutoring to get you to that stage, they will take the time and effort to get you there. They were also incredibly flexible with accommodating us getting the open water dives done before we head on holiday.
Their facilities are great, they are so warm and helpful and I will absolutely return over the summer for more dives! Thanks again!

Just finished my Open water diving course here today with Anne! It was amazing! Nice fellas! She is always very patient telling me all the details I need to know, make sure I learned the skills. Gram is a very fun person, he shows up with smiles all the time.
Will continue my diving course here when weather gets warmer. Kinsale is a lovely town, I believe diving brings me joy and good luck!

Third trip to Ocean Addicts in late August. Did an afternoon and morning dive this time. Yet again great service from Graham and Anne. There is a reason they have been going for years and others have fallen by the wayside. Both dives were approx 45 mins around towards the Head and plenty to see including Wrasse, Lobsters, Crabs, Prawns and plenty of Dogfish. Can't wait to go back again next year.

I just did the one dive at Ocean Addicts. From the start communication was great over e-mail. I got a warm welcome from Anne, Graham and Tony. Equipment was well maintained. I had my own personal dive guide who was able to point out the macro life and even gave me his torch for the duration of the dive. Very professional and friendly set up, nothing more I could ask for!

We stayed one night on the Embarr and dove a morning and afternoon. It was a terrific two days of diving. Anne and Graham were excellent hosts. Great diving, good food, and interesting conversation. The diving in Kinsale was great fun, with interesting things to see. It exceeded my expectations.
