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.

    Went on this day-trip with my girlfriend for a cute adventure out of Dublin, wasn’t sure what to expect. It’s a day packed with amazing attractions and genuinely a fun bus ride through Northern Ireland. Noel, our guide, would give his recommendations for every area visited but if you ask him personally what’s the best thing to do at each spot he’ll tell you exactly what you want to hear based on your wants. At giants causeway he said some beautiful spots to go before heading down to see the main attraction, and when we visited Belfast he says the honest truth about visiting the area which we appreciated. During the ride he gives loads of interesting and fun history tidbits obviously based on the area you’re in. Our driver, Matko, was very precise with his driving and even gave us 2 bonus spots for taking photos which everyone appreciated! I hate giving perfect reviews but honestly I can’t think of a downside. Only thing I could say is that I wish we had more time to stay at some of the locations, but it just gives you the feeling of wanting to come back and see more and experience all of it. Kudos to the both of them, had an amazing day.

    David was a great tour guide and singer, Paulo was a great driver and very helpful, he went out of his way to drop us in Belfast after the tour near our hotel. The Giant’s Causeway was great, the coast was Beautiful. We took the Black Cab tour of Belfast and learned a lot of history about the troubles from a very personal view of Pat. Pat and Kieran were great tour guides and were very informative about the history of Belfast.

    First our guide, Jackie was amazing, a wealth of local knowledge and great wit. The Blarney castle and kissing the stone was definitely on the bucket list and if not on yours I recommend get it on your list. The castle of Cashel was definitely a bonus, beautiful views.

    Amazing trip. Finn was our guide and driver and I have to tip the cap to him. It can’t be easy to both drive that big bus and entertain but he did so very well. A+ for Finn! As for the tour itself, the three castles we visited were so cool. Of the three my favorite was The Rock of Cashel. Of course Blarney Castle and Cahir were great as well. Overall, an awesome tour and a must book!

    A full day trip-12 hours! Be sure to arrive at train station 29 minutes prior to departure. Wonderful views, delightful and attentive guides. We ate in Blarney and did some shopping too.

    I had an amazing experience on this tour. Super well organized with amazing guides, Noel and Brian. They were very funny and kind. It's totally worth it to do this tour if you spend some days in Dublin to be able to explore a little more.

    I enjoyed every bit of the trip. Not only did I enjoy the beautiful sceneries of Ireland, but I also learned a lot about Irish history from our tour guide - Brian.

    If you get the possibility to go on this tour, do it.
    Lar is the perfect guide. He has so many stories to tell from his experiences as extra on big film productions; and he tells them with humor and energy so even your teenagers will forget their smartphones.
    Beautiful landscapes, fresh air, lots of laughter, and also many historical facts about Northern Ireland. Thanks Lar for a wonderful day -and for the song!

    An incredible trip, worth every minute. Richard, our driver, was the coolest and made the long trip seem short. Know A LOT about Irish history and entertains everyone with his stories and jokes.
    The Giant's Causeway is simply breath taking.
