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.

    We are a family of 5 (3 young adult children) staying in Galway. We had such a pleasant experience with Tom Walsh on the day that he took us to Cliffs of Mohr that we talked him into taking us on a second (unplanned) day trip to Connemara. It was a great decision. Tom has so much knowledge and behind the scenes information to share. Tom related well to both generations. We would highly recommend this tour group.

    My son and I had a free day while in Galway looking at the University and found Ulla on TripAdvisor. Ulla was an amazing guide. She is genuine, caring and a lovely person showing you the most beautiful areas of Connemara and all the hidden gems. We were able to customize the day based on our interest and timing, including a relaxing walk on the beach with our feet in the Atlantic. It was beautiful! The day was ours to explore for as long as we wanted. Her car is spacious and comfortable. She packed snacks and water if we needed anything. Her personal touch made the day unforgettable. We would absolutely use her services again and recommend her to all who wish to have a wonderful day exploring. Thank you Ulla!!

    Such a relief to not have to drive ourselves on the ”wrong” side and such narrow roads with lots of traffic and tractors, cows etc. coming towards us. Sorin was knowledgeable of the Burren area and showed us a lot 😊

    Teresa is a wonderful host to a great experience. Fascinating opportunity to see cheese process and then the wonderful opportunity to taste the results! Also seeing the different types of cows seen here in Ireland.

    Amazing. Simply Amazing. Ulla’s love for Ireland is infectious. She guides you to the most beautiful areas off the beaten track. She takes into account what’s the guest would enjoy and alters the day based on that.

    Wonderful trip and will surely recommend her services to anyone we know traveling to Ireland.

    Thanks Ulla!

    We have a child under a year of age and were struggling to find any tours that would allow our whole family to attend. This private tour with Eamonn did not disappoint! He was very knowledgeable about Irish history and kept the 12-hour day super engaging and exciting. Additionally, he was accommodating to structuring the tour around what worked for us and what we were hoping to see.

    All in all, a great tour, an amazing tour guide, and well worth it!!

    Great personality!!! Our family of six traveled with Paul for three days. We asked questions constantly and Paul knew all the answers. He was so energetic. He is passionate about Ireland. He had tremendous recommendations; in fact, he helped us a month before we arrived to Ireland in planning the three day itinerary. He told us the best places to go and how to schedule everything. He was super responsive to email. The seven-seater Mercedes van was clean, safe, and comfortable. Paul was very attentive to all of our needs. Everything about this three day trip to Ireland was absolutely tremendous! We could not more highly recommend a driving company - Paul was superb!!!
