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.

    My daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed this excellent day tour on our visit to Ireland in early May. Our driver, JP, did an amazing job, especially on the narrow, winding roads near the Cliffs of Moher. He kept us informed when we had to make a detour on the way home because of an accident on the motorway. Our tour guide, Maurice, was very knowledgeable and entertaining, regularly checking on everyone throughout the trip. He continued to provide information at the stops for those who were interested, plus gave us great recommendations for the best places to eat. We were fortunate that the weather was perfect that day making our views at the Cliffs spectacular. We made well-timed stops along the way, plus two-hour stops at the Cliffs of Moher and Galway City that gave us plenty of time to enjoy those beautiful landmarks. I highly recommend this tour.

    Horseback riding in the mountains was amazing! And our guide Matt was very informative and quite funny. Matt was so kind and helpful to another tour guest that required extra attention and help and he was infinitely patient and kind. We had a great day.

    This was our favorite day in Ireland! We loved seeing Howth from Mark and Missy's vantage point and meeting new friends along the way. Although the hike is tough, it is manageable (I even carried my 1.5 year old the whole way up) - and the views are breathtakingly beautiful and totally worth it! 10/10 definitely recommend!!

    Our tour guide Connor was amazing. He is very knowledgeable about the sites, engaging and skilled guide. He created a wonderful day for us. We stopped at 5 or 6 sites with only short drives between, each were incredible in their own right. There were ample opportunities for bathroom, food and snacks.

    I would recommend this half day tour if you are visiting Dublin. You are able to get out of the city and see the Irish Sea and Bay of Dublin. The views are worth the trip. The village itself is nice with good seafood.

    This was such a great tour - Richard was amazing. May have been our favorite part of our time in Ireland. We got to see so much in one day. The guided walk was gorgeous and we had a bright sunny day. The 360 views from the top were great. All the lakes and the monastic site we stopped at were great as well. Also the stop in Enniskerry at Poppy's was great - get the meat pie! Thanks for a great time!

    This was a wonderful last trip experience for us. We had a smaller passenger bus which made it that much more intimate and we were very appreciative of our host, John Todd, and our driver, Gabby. They were both really helpful and informative.

    William was absolutely wonderful. At the last minute my friend had to cancel and William just took the whole thing in stride. He is extremely knowledgeable and informative and very flexible about making our stops fit what I wanted to see…not just conforming to some rigid route. I can’t say enough good things about this day…so worth it!!!

    Great experience with Ben Chambers (Bernard). We had some personal ancestry related things to see that we sprung on him last minute and Ben took it in stride, did a great job helping us find the correct locations, and still showed us a great amount of the tour with our remaining time.

    We had a group of 5 and had a nice large new Mercedes van. Very comfortable, professional, customizable, and was very fun.

    Thank you for the great experience!

    Went on the Moher Cliff tour in a very comfortable Mercedes and it was excellent!! Zac our tour guide/driver was on time, engaging, super courteous, and worked with us on managing our times and stops. I am an amateur photographer, and Zac was great at making adhoc stops whenever I saw something worth grabbing a picture of and more. He was very patient with the time I took at stops as I have a tendency to take a while when I have camera in hand. On top of all the sites and photos, he took us to Vaughn’s for what was the best Oysters and Fish ‘n Chips I have ever had… poured a great pint of Plain to compliment it all. We had an excellent trip and would recommend Zac and Liberty for anyone looking for a personalized tour.
