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.

Martin is a brilliant guide, engaging, informative and great fun. We the Wexford 50-somethings had a great day accessing the most beautiful scenery on Wild Atlantic Way.

We took the Heritage Tour of Kilkee. It was a 'craicing' morning - Martin gave us local and personalized family history, amusing anecdotes and amazing weather. A morning spent in Martin's company would be great fun, whatever the weather. Highly recommended!

Martin of Loop Head Walking Tours is a fantastic guide! You will enjoy your time with him, learn so much, and share some laughs as he expertly guides you through one of the most scenic areas of Ireland. Martin is extremely knowledgeable; he has lived his whole life in the area. He is friendly and entertaining as he shares unique stories of the Kilkee and Loop Head region. He showed us the gorgeous natural landscape of the Loop Head peninsula region, including breathtaking views of our starting point Kilkee beach, stunning cliffs that rival and perhaps surpass the beauty of other more “popular” cliff regions, nearby islands, dramatic spots where ocean waves meet rock and cliff, and the historic lighthouse at the tip of Loop Head peninsula. He shared stories along the way of historical events that took place in the area, notable people who have been to or lived in the area, and even enriched our literary palate when he read a brief poem about the stunning Bishop’s Island - a sight in close proximity to the shore. Memorable stops at: the location of a Star Wars photo shoot, a church with an amazing backstory of resilience and ingenuity during the days of religious persecution, and a visit to the spectacular Kilbaha Art Gallery- home to creative masterpieces made by local Irish painters, sculptors, and more! Martin’s sense of hospitality was exceptional. It was just me and my daughter on the tour, and it was a misty windy day. Martin customized our tour to give a mix of walking the cliffs and oceanside trails as well as driving along the coast so that we could see as many sights as possible . He brought a thermos of coffee and cookies for us since we were such a tiny group and it was chilly! I am so happy we chose Martin to guide us through the beauty of this unforgettable Irish landscape.
Thank you, Martin!

PS- Martin also owns and runs the very attractive and comfortable Stella Maris Hotel- a perfect place to stay when in the area.

Tips: bring comfortable hiking shoes, raincoat depending on season, and an appetite for the best of Irish scenery.

Martin provided the most fantastic guided hike from the cliffs at Doolin to Lahinch in the most adverse weather imaginable!! He made the whole day so much fun and so positive for us all (20 teens and 4 teachers). We could not recommend Martin highly enough.

BOOK THIS TOUR!! (: I went with my mom. It was just the two of us but he gladly hosted which was very nice of him! Martin is kind and friendly. He'll gladly answer any questions you have. We didn't only see beautiful nature- he taught us about culture and history which was fascinating! We saw the Hanging Gardens, The Church of the Little Arc, The Loophead Lighthouse, Lovers Leap, the rock Eire sign, a beautiful location where a Star Wars scene was filmed, the Kilbaha Gallery which had amazing art and a great gift shop, views of the ocean and cliffs on all sides of the Loophead, and nature/houses on rural roads. Book this tour, you won't regret it!!
