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.

My wife and I went Kayaking and Coasteering at Urchin adventure. Our guide Pat exceeded our expectation so much. We both had such a great time. I would highly recommend Urchin Adventures as they were very good at understand what we were expecting and trying to do everything they could to meet those expectations.

Pat was an excellent guide and our experience was excellent even with the weather being less than ideal for kayaking it made little to no difference

We did sea Kayaking as part of a package with the Cliff House Hotel and it was just fantastic.

We got lucky and were able to have what was essentially a private tour of just my partner and I and Pat from Urchin Adventures who was brilliant! He told us all about the area, brought us up close with the stranded barge that landed in Ardmore in 1987 and we shared our mutual love for rock music.

I would 100% recommend taking the Kayaking trip and also a few pints in the Bar afterward.

We did the 3 hour kayak and had a fab time. Thought it was a bit expensive, but it was amazing. Would love to do again with 3 teenagers, but it's a bit too expensive for us all

I have been on a few kayaking trips on my travels, although I am still a novice. Ronan our guide a native of Cork made this our most enjoyable with his anecdotes and extensive knowledge of the very impressive local geology, wildlife and history. The 3 hour trip passed in a flash. I cannot wait to come back

Had an amazing sea kayaking trip with a fantastic Instructor Pat. He made sure we new the basics to ensure we were always safe, guided us through some great water passages close to the cliff and out into the bay to safely experience some bigger sea movements. But the real thrill was seeing the variety of sea wildlife capped by a rare sighting of Bluefin Tuna leaping out of the water chasing shoals of fish.

We went kayaking with a group of friends. Pat guided us, giving very clear information and guidance. We had great fun. We had beers and pizza afterwards, at the back of the place next to the beach. Very nice service; spontaneous, quick and efficient (shout-out to Steph!)
