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.

    Spent a sunny evening on the corrib with a group from work and my 15 year old daughter. First time kayaking and had an amazing time. Duncan is a sound guy and has a really nice way of interacting with everyone, while at the same time supervising the group. Would definitely recommend and will definitely do it again.

    We loved our cruise! Thanks to Colette for fixing my reservation mistake! We had a wonderful time and learned a lot of Irish history. Don't leave Galway without going on the Corrib Princess!

    A great sailing experience for out family group of 11.
    From the initial email and phone contact with Collette to arrange the sail, through to our lovely crew of Cormack and Pawel last Thursday afternoon, we had a faultless experience.
    Everything was sorted: wet weather gear; beers, and snacks for all, knowledgeable and friendly crew that allowed some of us to have a go at sailing ....loads of fun!
    Many thanks from all the Kelly family for a terrific afternoon's sail on your beautiful boat, it was a special way to end our wonderful trip to Ireland.

    Fantastic trip. Well organised by Ava. Great fun with skipper Mo and his dad Tom who were great company and made the trip very enjoyable . They got the kids involved who really enjoyed it. Luckily the weather was fabulous. Very comfortable to sleep on and Mo made the best sandwiches and Irish breakfast. Well recommended.

    Had a great time on the boat with Jimmy, the children loved feeding the seagulls with bread which was provided on the trip. Loved looking at the crabs, sea stars and the marvellous selection of wildlife that letterfrack has to offer. Jimmy has great knowledge of the area and we all enjoyed learning new things! Perfect for all ages. Sadly we didn’t catch any fish so we will have to come back!!

    I returned to cashla fermoyle for my annual visit from September 2 to 5th where I fished for two days under the excellent boating of Sean Bolustrum. We had about 8 on Glen, 8-9 sea trout on ugga more (crumlim). Sean and I had the two best days ever on loch a Clogher17 sea trout on 5/9 and 26 sea trout and a grilse of 3.2lbs on 06/09. I’d say the size of the sea trout here was like the great days of 1980s, lots of fish 15-18 inches long, when as a boy I often had 2 pounders in the bag home from Owen boliska and lough an uilleanmore. Black Zulu or Delphi silver on tail, Watson fancy muddler and claret muddler on dropper. Fish two flies on a 12 foot leader and fish slowly on the turnover

    The trip across Galway Bay for Galway docks to New Quay, Co Clare was great fun. A speedy way to reach the other side of the bay. Skipper Colin was great, good personality, very knowledgeable and inspired confidence.
