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.

    Brian was a very informative tour guide. He was kind, and he ensured that everything that we arrived in a timely manner. We returned to the Dublin city center a bit earlier ( 7:30 pm) than we were supposed to. This allowed us to explore the city's nightlife more than on previous nights. However, there were some drawbacks to this as we could only spend 45 minutes in Cork while 1 hour and a half was advertised in the tour package. In Cork, we had to choose between having a brief lunch ( pizza slice and mc donalds) at 1 pm after not eating all day since pick up (8 am) or walking to the city market given the short period, which we did not plan for. If we had known, we would've packed lunch beforehand and eaten it on the bus to enjoy walking around Cork. In addition, there were several instances when the bus driver would take off as people walked to their seats with no headcount in sight. This led us to have a very anxiety-inducing experience where we felt the need to rush back to the bus 10-20 minutes before scheduled as we thought it would leave us.

    Incredible experience to do at least once, we had a top driver and precise explanations from our guide Noël who always had a smile on his face and took the trouble to explain all along the way the different places we were passing through. I totally recommend choosing them 👌 it's a day we won't forget. Choose them without hesitation ! 🙌😇

    Great tour and one of the best guides we had.
    Very well organized, lots of information delivered in a nice and consumable manner. On the way to the sites and one the way back.
    Mary is a very nice person, which is always approachable and open for a chat - also for other topics. Fantastic English - our son 8th grade understood most of it (he is native German)

    The coach ride was fine, but it is an extremely long day. Have to take 2 trains from Dublin to get the coach in Killarney to start the actual tour. It was a gorgeous day, and the scenery was lovely. Highlight of the tour is the sheepherding demonstration. Absolutely wonderful! Overall the tour was great, but it is very dependent upon the weather, and you have to be up for a 16-hour day. But if you are, do it!

    Highly recommend this tour! It was a highlight of our Dublin trip and almost a year later, we still talk about the trip with friend and family. You’ll leave with new friends, lots of laughs, and good times that you’ll never forget.

    Derek Nixon was our driver and he was outstanding. We had my mother and with us and she required a walker. He was very accommodating. The trip was great, a long day but plenty of stops and bathroom breaks. The Irish countryside and Castles are beautiful. Derek gave us a good history lesson and some wonderful Irish tunes. I would highly recommend this tour.

    We had a great time on our Cliffs of Mohr day tour. Our driver, Richard, was very knowledgeable on a broad range of topics that he presented to the passengers over the course of the day and was quick with his humor. We had a blast and look forward to another visit and an opportunity to take in another Paddywagon tour.
