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.

The full moon kayaking tour was a great experience, Tadgh was a great guide, he was very relaxed and allowed everyone to go at their own pace and didn’t rush anything. I would book again and would also recommend the tour.

I just completed an excellent and very informative history kayaking morning with Cillian on the Killaloe canal and Lough Derg. I highly recommend this activity and I really enjoyed the beautiful scenery and views, the local history and the time spent gaining a new perspective on the area from the lake.

Absolutely loved this trip. Our guide, Cillian, was so lovely and gave so much interesting facts and history about the area. The area is so beautiful and this was more relaxing and easy going than a strenuous rowing workout, suitable for all abilities. The weather was very much in our favour which made the day very enjoyable.

A wonderful experience from start to finish! I enjoyed the trip with 3 friends and although 1 of our group is not the most confident on water, she had a great time and felt completely at ease. We were amazed by the history and scenery too — would recommend

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are often asked if non swimmers or those who have not kayaked before can take our trip and we reassure them it is, but it's good to hear the same from someone who has taken the trip. We're delighted you all enjoyed the experience.
