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.

    I used to visit the crypt and its fascinating mummies very often when I lived in Dublin. The last time I went was in June 2001 with my ten year old son who was visibly impressed. The Crusader was the most interesting as he is 800 years old and had most likely been on Crusade with Richard the Lionheart. Sadly the mummies were destroyed last week by an intruder who broke in and set fire to them. They were truly marvellous y so well-preserved

    This was organized as a team day out, and I have to say one of the most enjoyable one's we've done. There were 14 in our group and it was one of the most entertaining, team bonding experiences I've had, we laughed, panicked! and played to each others strenghts. Highly recommend it.

    Miles was just amazing! You have to do it 200 %. It is more complex than you think. And an amazing experience. It is a must to do!!! We had the chance to see a game after the "class". And we are not just in love with that amazing sport. It should be an international sport. Those athletes are amazing!! Thank you again for the super experience. We will always remember you!!

    Escape room virgins. Really enjoyed the puzzles and saving ourselves from turning into zombies. We did need hints to help us along but didnt take away from the fun.

    The clockwork door is a spot well worth the visit too. Myself and my boyfriend attended a rendition of ‘ get your mind f*cked*’ performed my a magician and mind reading duo. We were amazed not only at the quality of this production, effort , professionalism and content of their acts , but also of the performers passion for what they did and interpersonal skills. The owner ciaran i must particularly mention as his warm nature in how he greeting us both on arrival, providing us both with a tour room by room , made us feel like this spot had been home for year . They had thousands of games , books, snack facilities( aswell as the ability to bring along your own) , escape rooms , study rooms and events they’d run regularly via a weekly schedule was impressive, to say the least and unlike anywhere I can think of in Dublin . I would highly recommend this to anyone , young or old , as this place is a true gem in the heart of Dublin City .

    Took my son and his friends here for his 12th birthday
    We did the older experience 12 -16 they really enjoyed the challenge when booking I asked staff which area junior or older for 12 although they recommended junior it was booked out for the date I wanted so staff suggested I let kids know it's a bit harder this was great advice as when things were harder the kids could reassure each other it was because they were in the older area but they were able for most of the experience and really enjoyed the pizza after definitely would recommend

    As we want to try skiing in January - we decided to take a beginner class @ Kilternan, as our journey was 3 hours each way we opted for Sunday - we prebooked the class by telephone, on arrival we had to fill out some paperwork - getting the boots and Ski's was hectic as there was a lot of kids around, and its a bit daunting when its your first time, you need to know your height & weight as this dictates the length of ski's that you need - the counter staff work out the size of ski for you. Leave any valuables at home or with someone who is not ski-ing, i did notice some lockers but not sure if they were lockable or not. Our instructor was Faughna (not sure of spelling), very very good at giving instruction, demonstration and time to each student. We did have one young guy who was more interested in falling down and nattering. Be sure to have either waterproof or raingear inclduig a hat in case it rains, plus a change of clothes in case you get wet. We had ski gloves and our hands were nice and toastie.

    I cannot recommend Bespoke Equestrian Ireland enough!!! The entire riding experience was the absolute best from start to finish. My friend and I did the three day iconic tour and had the most incredible time. From start to finish we were taken care of with wonderful taxi services, a lovely bed and breakfast, and delicious food. And that doesn't even include the riding.
    Beautifully planned days with hours in the saddle in some of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen. The horses and the staff were just the absolute best. You are carefully matched to just the right horse and can just enjoy the riding no matter what your level. We galloped on the beaches between castle ruins, rode throughout the countryside including through classic Irish fields, grass covered dunes, small towns, and woods. The sights you will see are just spectacular and to experience them from horseback made it all the more memorable. The horses have the best care and training and the facility is wonderful. Every member of the staff was kind, fun, knowledgeable, and helpful making the overall experience all the better. I work with horses here in the United States and was nothing but impressed by every aspect of the operation.
    This is the way to see Northern Ireland and BEI is the company to do it with. You will not be sorry! Trip of a lifetime and a huge bucket list moment.

    So grateful we stumbled on this amazing experience during our pre-planning of our first trip to Ireland! Booking online from Canada to reserve our spots was simple and easy. We received quick responses after emailing a couple of questions and when the day finally arrived we were warmly welcomed into the workshop by Audrey and Clodagh. The ladies were skilled and knowledgeable and also just a whole lotta fun! Good humour and patience, treats and of course some brilliant Irish Craic! We were able to choose the type of finish and customize the textures to truly make a one of a kind ring. Now when we look at our beautiful, geniune Irish Claddagh rings, we are reminded not only of a great night in Dublin, but the most meaningful keepsake of our epic trip. Go raibh maith agat Clodagh & Audrey.
