  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    On a very Cold January day in Ireland the morning started with the biggest smile from Derek. He was waiting for us in the reception of our hotel. We had the most amazing day. He is such a special and wonderful person that was so kind. Even when our tour was over he kept in touch while we traveled around Ireland. I think it's amazing when staying in Dublin and our transport never turned up we phoned him and asked could he help with a number for someone to collect us he said I'll do better for you and made a few phone calls and had a transport collect us in 9 minutes. Myself and my husband will be recommending Private Tours Cork to everyone we know traveling to Ireland and our recommendation to everyone is make sure you ask for the owner Derek because he is such an amazing person and guide.

    Ted Kennedy, my personal tour guide for the Ring of Kerry all-day tour, created a life-long memory that I will treasure forever. Ted is a local who has been doing the tour for over 30 years. He tailored the tour to ensure my personal interests - ruins, castles and cliffs - were prioritized and I had as much time as I wanted to explore and experience them. The Kerry Cliffs are even more spectacular than the more famous (for now) Cliffs of Moher! In addition to knowing all the historical background for the entire area, Ted seemed to know everyone who lived and/or was present along the tour route, whether along a remote road, at a stop or in a restaurant along the way! Knowing I was seeking information on my ancestors, he offered advice on where to find official records, based on my family name, and then even introduced me to a local woman who may be related to my great-great grandmother. Ted broke up the drive with opportunities to get out and walk and climb through gorgeous scenic locations, many off the main Ring of Kerry road. I have pictures that are breathtaking and will always think of Ted when I look at them! Thank you, Ted, you are a perfect representative for Ireland and its people🍀!

    We recently returned from a 10-day cruise around Ireland and the high point of the entire cruise was our day spent touring Cork and the vicinity with Brian Boru. We had a few places that we wanted to see and then took his recommendations for the remainder of the day. He was friendly, it was easy to ask him questions, and he had a wealth of knowledge of the area and of the history of Ireland. We definitely recommend him and at some time in the future, would like to book a land tour with him. Thanks, Brian, for a great day.

    Our driver, Tony Bennett, was a good guide. We were a large group who wanted to see different sites and he managed to make us all happy! His sense of humour added to the fun! We had the best fish and chips ever in Kinsale!

    Munsterbus Private tour was the best part of our trip. Our Driver tailored our drive to what we really wanted to see by asking questions at the beginning of the tour. We loved it and honestly wished we had planned multiple days with them.

    Great experience! We would recommend to everyone who visits Dublin. Our driver, Derek was very flexible with our ideas and worked with what we wanted. Even stopped at an amazing distillery! Derek, was very knowledgeable, personable and engaged in conversation with humor. Fun times!

    Niamh, was a fantastic host. She gave a great insight into the history and background of the gin. The cocktail making was well structured and catered to everyone. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Cork. The people that were on it with us gave us so many places to visit. Loved it!!!!!

    We loved having a Private Tour for the day! We were able to spend all the time we wanted at each site without feeling rushed or crowded! Four of us share a Mercedes Van in full comfort while the drivere shared wonderful history and lore about these three castles! We saw Rock of Cashel and the neighboring abbey, Blarney Castle (kissed the stone, but it's a long wait - took over an hour in line), and then Cahir. Pick-u was at our hotel and drop off was in Temple Bar at our request. I can't imagine a better day! Well worth the cost!!!

    We’ve done similar self guided tours before and chose this one for our first trip to Cork.

    Found them a really good way to see a city at your own pace - we took tea breaks and a spot of lunch too. You just carry on at the last stop.

    Found it really informative, the stops well spaced out and directions helpful and spot on.

    Price is very competitive for a trip in a city.

    The weather was perfect during the tour. We went to Gougane Barra in the morning, side trip to Bantry, lunch at Mizen Head, and a quick stopover at Clonakilty before heading back to Cork City. We were lucky that it wasn’t foggy that day so the view of Mizen Head was amazing. Great for photos!

    I’m not an Irish national so the bits of Irish history and trivia during the drive were very interesting. The tour guide was also very friendly and accommodating during the trip. By far the best tour I’ve joined here. Thanks.

    We really enjoyed our travels with Best of Ireland Tours. Our guide Niall thoughtfully planned out our week of travel with the best recommendations for sites and restaurants. He knew about experiences that we would not have found on our own. We really appreciated that he was always on time, very friendly, shared the inside scoop on all of the stops, and accommodated our special requests and interests. We definitely recommend a trip with Naill and Best of Ireland Tours!

    We spent two delightful days with Val and had the time of our lives. Our group consisted of 12 people with ages from teens all the way to Grandma. Val entertained all ages and my giant family fell in love with Val. We had the best time touring Wicklow, Cork, Blarney Castle, Kinsale and Dublin. Val accommodated all activity levels and we were so sad to leave him. Everyone agreed out of the 11 different private guides we hired for this big epic trip, Val was the crowd favorite. If you want to see Ireland, then the only way to see it is with Val. We can’t wait to go back and visit Ireland again with Your Irish Tour.
