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.

    Its a beautiful walk in Cork just outside Fitzgerald Park. Only downside is that there are no public toilets nearby. But other than that it’s magnificent.

    I have been shortchanged twice here and didn't bother making an issue as the place was busy. I wouldn't lower my standards. Also a colleague of mine paid for a monthly running pass for me which I never received. Nice trail but conveniently forgetting to hand out change?. People aren't fools. I wont support anymore.

    This was a surprise for my ten year old daughter as we had never been riding before, so the whole family took part. The lady and gentleman that was teaching us was so gentle, understanding, great at giving instruction and really made it magical . Great price and made memories that will last for ever.

    Despite water levels being fairly low at the end of the summer, we were still able to have fund canoeing down the river and 7 sets of different size rapids.

    We had a group of varying abilities and they ensured that all were catered for with us all learning some new skills and having fun in the process.

    Just completed the 12-day Miz-Mal ride wit Wild Atlantic Cycling. The trip organisation was superb, the route was designed to be away from main roads and took us through wonderful scenery. The weather may not have been the best for our trip but it was great fun! It was a great bunch of people that took part and all got on well together and overall was a truly wonderful experience. It was also great that we had support each day from Paul & Fi who were always on hand to help.The overnight accommodation was excellent, as was the craic amongst all those taking part. Can't recommend this tour highly enough!!

    Had a private excursion to Galway with a stop each way to break up the drive. Tony was a great driver offering information along the way and had a great sense of humor. It was a long trek- but worth it!

    Absolutely fantastic experience. The area is beautiful in its own right but experiencing it out on the lake at night makes it all the better. The 2 guides were excellent, good craic and so informative. Lots to learn from this marine biologist haven. Definitely recommend a hike up the hill beforehand to get beautiful view over the lake!

    Calvin was the perfect host for our wildlife weekend covering both bird knowledge, local flora and fauna as well as sea life.

    With a mixture of local birdwatching, forest walks and whale watching, it had something for everyone along with a relaxed pace and informative guide.

    Would highly recommend for anyone looking to learn about the abundance of life in the ocean, woods and coast.

    I took my daughter and a group of her friends here for her 9th birthday, We had Erin as an instructor through the safety briefing at the start and then later on throughout the courses and was impressed by her overall patience with all the children and her attitude towards making their experience better. All the instructors were great throughout and allowed our children to leave with a sense of achievement which was amazing to see.
    Would definitely recommend for a fun day out

    I would highly recommend this experience to anybody from Cork and afar. The Sea Safari was a beautiful way to spend a Sunday morning and we returned to shore with so much knowledge about the wildlife and coastline from our fantastic guide Jason, who is so lovely and enthusiastic . We had a blast flying through the waves as well as enjoying the breathtaking scenery and learning all about the area. Thank you so much for an amazing trip!
