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.

    Nice hour and a half flat walk around the reservoir. Plenty of spots for bramble picking along the way and popular for the dog walkers.

    There wasn’t any car park so we parked in nearby round wood and stopped afterwards for lunch

    Visited The Wicklow Way at Ballinastoe today and by goodness was it a bracing, albeit absolutely wonderful and beautiful, walk. The wind was up. The views from the rock as you rocked up the boardwalk is fantastic, even on this foreboding day. Well worth a visit. Bring a flask of tea!

    Joyce finds the most unusual, wonderful places to stay and eat. Her hikes are led by knowledgably local guides that provide you with riveting local history and allows you to leave with a sense of wonder for the land and feeling of belonging with the kind people you meet along the way. She finds the road less traveled, so as to make your hikes gloriously spectacular and uninterrupted by the throngs of tourist visiting other more commercialized sites. Most importantly she makes the hikes personal. She has a knack for matching like-minded people with common interest together and putting together hikes that are manageable for all members of the group. This is the second trip for our group. We were strangers from different countries and different parts of the US that had such a wonderful experience on our first Joyce trip we asked that she put together another one for the same group.

    We just completed both of the Wild Atlantic Way guided tours with Footfalls which were tours 6 and 7 for us. We love the fact that many of the walks/hikes are in less traveled areas. The accommodations are always fine and breakfasts wonderful. Chris is a great guide that is extremely accommodating. We will be looking at the remaining guided tours that we have not been on to determine what next fall’s trip is.

    Had a great time with my brother in law and two teenage boys. We loved storming the buses and charging through the forest like lunatics.
    I made the mistake of wearing a bright yellow jumper as I might as well of had a target on my head.
    I'd highly recommend special ops for a day out of action packed fun. The staff were very helpful and professional.

    Wet. Muddy. Loved it! Was a wet and rainy day but that made it even better. Loads of muddy tracks and puddles to splash through. Great fun. The instructor was really nice and helpful. Patient and explained the controls well. I’d love to do this again.
