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 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!!

What do Charlotte Bronte, Che Guevara and Richard Harris have in common? Yes, they have all stayed in Kilkee. This Victorian seaside town has always had a lot to offer: a dip in the famous pollock holes, a longer swim in its horse shoe bay, a bracing cliff walk, and plenty of social life in its hostelries. But for even the most seasoned visitors to Kilkee, there is more to discover. As part of Heritage Week, a pal and I joined a walking tour of the town led by Martin Haugh of Loop Head Walking Tours. Lasting approx. 2 and a half hours, we walked from the Stella Maris Hotel to the west end. As a local, Martin had an excellent store of memories and anecdotes to bring the history of Kilkee to life. Overall the tour was fun, friendly and very informative. Well worth doing.

I was lucky to spend a morning with Martin Haugh on a walking trek of Kilkee town. It was a wonderful experience,full of local knowledge,juicy tit-bits of news and rumours,and plenty of hard facts and history. Martin is an accomplished story teller,has facts and figures at the ready,and always maintains an interesting tale. The trek is to be highly recommended and guaranteed to amuse and entertain.

It has always been my dream to visit the Cliffs. What an excellent idea to book a guided tour before leaving home with Loophead walking tours! Even if I was the only one interested that day, Martin found a "personal" solution for me in order to allow me to experience the Cliffs of West Clare in all their aspects: geological, historical, bothanical and landscape. We even picked up mushrooms for my omelette the next morning. An extraordinary experience!

We did the Loophead Tour of 14km. Stunning views, a little excitement climbing over creeks and ditches and very nice conversations with Martin about flora and fauna, Irish history and current affairs. Only to be recommended.

Went out with Martin on the Kilcredaun route. He's hugely knowledgeable about the area and its heritage and lore. Careful of all in the party and helpful when things get rough underfoot. Would highly recommend a guided walk with Martin who knows the area and local landowners and can access routes safely and with permission.
