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.

    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!!

    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!

    really fun night out, no matter if you have irish dance experience or not! They will talk you though the steps, and even if you dont get it, all the others will just drag you along, no problem. You can have a drink in between the breaks and after the dancing you could grab a bite to eat in the nearby pub

    We had an amazing time at NoEscape in Cork. We did all three rooms in a row, it was that much fun! Our game master was really great, very experienced and had a good balance of giving hints and letting us explore the game ourselves. The rooms are not the hardest but very well thought out and the riddles all made good sense. We can recommend playing here very much!

    The Dursey cable car is currently closed in 2022 for upgrades - I'm not sure what it will be like once the new one is in place - but this is the only cable car in Ireland and such an experience. it goes from the mainland to an island - which is not inhabited - but farmers do have animals grazing on the island - sheep and cows - so dogs are not allowed - but if you are looking for something different to experience - this is the one for you.
    I'm not into sky diving or bungy jumping - so this is as far as I'd go to float on air..
    Looking forward to when this re-opens so I can experience it again.
    Note :- the roads in this area are very narrow - so not good for big vehicles e.g. Campers unless you are well used of driving big vehicles on country roads..

    Went climbing while I was visiting family in Cork 13.05.22. Really good wall all the staff were really friendly showed me around. Nice and chilled family atmosphere and took my mum to see what climbing is like, she enjoyed watching other climbers climbing and solving climbing problems then getting it. Definitely Worthing going to when the weather not soo good for climbing. Good bouldering section and great over hang for sport climbing as well. I was doing strength and condition my left foot from a skateboard injury last summer. They even have gym gear as well for help with strengthening and stretching. Highly recommend defo be back my further trips back to cork. 👍

    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!
