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 did the Limerick Walking Tour with Jorgen this afternoon and it was amazing. Jorgen really made the city come alive with fascinating accounts of the many sieges in the city's history and of the many famous personages in its past (the Colleen Bawn, actor Richard Harris, rock star Dolores O'Riordan among others). The two hours just flew by! This is definitely a tour I would recommend...

Wonderful tour. I've been to Adare several time but never had a good understanding of the history. Jorgen is very knowledgeable and interesting. I have some mobility problems and he modified the walk to meet my needs. Highly recommend.

Our staycation brought us to Limerick in September. Jorgen brought us on two great walking tours - Adare first, followed by Ballingarry. Jorgen has great local knowledge and went above and beyond what I expected from the tour.
It was great to hear some of the history of the area and it made me realise how little I know about Irish history. I'd highly recommend doing one of these tours if you're in the area.

Jorgen is renowned among the Tourist Guiding Community for his knowledge. It's lovely to be able to ask anything and get an authorittive reply. He is also very Covid-19 aware and took care to keep us safe. Highly reccommended!

Jorgen provided a fantastic guided walking tour of Adare for 46th Limerick Ballybricken Beaver Scouts. His knowledge of the area is superb and he has excellent interpersonal skills. Children as young as 6 enjoyed and could relate to the information being relayed as much as the adult leaders in attendance. We also received very positive feedback from the parents of the Beaver Scouts after the tour.

Thank you Joanne. I really loved showing the leaders and the beaver scouts around Adare. We were lucky to make it back for lunch before the rain started. I would gladly do the same in Limerick or the same tour in Adare for the cub scouts or scouts. Longer hikes are possible too. Most important though is that the kids had fun.
