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 spent a couple of hours walking through the park. We entered near Ross Castle and just continued to follow the trails. Very peaceful and beautiful

    Beautiful place. Kate Kearney cottage i lovely. We use jaunting cars. the horses are in good condition and kept well. I have horse myself so i care about this beautiful animals. The quick update on some fake informations. The horses here are not working all days from morning till night just for few hours. They have days off too. They have access to food and water. I used junting cars few times and i can highly recommend. The guys are lovely and i like their company. This road should be close for a car traffic. Its not for tourist drive.

    Muckross House is impressive on the outside, sort of “meh” on the inside but the Farm Tour is what really made this a 5/5! We really, really enjoyed the entire Farm walk and stopped at every outbuiding and visited every animal we could. There’s a reproduction of a small farmhouse, with workers inside reenacting their roles (making butter, or bread, tending a fire, etc), and a middle sized farm house and then a big farmhouse with big barns and a schoolhouse and blacksmith. Here there is also an Irish Wolf Hound who was impressive to see. Lots of land in between with paths to walk. Really well done with friendly people inside, telling you what they can about history, etc.

    The waterfall is beautiful and the walk to get there is wonderful. We stood watching the waterfall for some time; enjoying the peace and serenity of such a beautiful location

    This was an exoerience I was really looking forward to ahead of our trip to Ireland and it did not disappoint. Our falconer, John is an incredible guide and teacher who you can tell genuinely cares for these birds. My group consisted of 6 (my family) and we each got ample time to be up close with Miko the Harris Hawk and a variety of the most beautiful owls I have ever seen. To be so close to these birds and witness their strength and intelligence was very special. I would do this again in a heartbeat! It's a good idea to pack a raincoat (when doesn't it rain in Ireland?!) and wear long pants since you're out in a field with tall grass (flies and mosquitos).

    One would need boots for safety and warm clothes to be prepared for the Irish weather. We had hailstones and sunshine as we climbed. Beautiful views well maintained by volunteers.

    We did the Ring of Kerry while on a motorcycle trip and it was one of the favourite spots in the south of Ireland. Spectacular views and plenty of pullouts along the way. Nice to go when it is quieter on the roads.

    Lovely grounds to walk, beautiful house exterior. The inside is now redone and set up for modern exhibits (not like a reproduction home). The gardens and lawn are fabulous.

    Such a beautiful area. Visiting Ross Castle was an added benefit - we would have been happy just for the opportunity to spend time in nature

    A spectacular place, a must visit! We left from Reen Pier and the whole experience was amazing. If you want to get away from the crowds, I couldn't recommend Innisfallen Island enough. The history and the scenery are just amazing!

    This drive took us over 1 hour and brought us all around the gap of dunloe, mols gap and ladies view. Excellent roads (Most of the time ) but not for the nervous or anxious Drivers. Stunning Scenery

    This trail offers an amazing array of sports as it ascends to Ireland's highest mountain and it includes multiple distinct routes up Carrauntoohill. The Devil's Ladder is also a common route. Most of the "ladder" itself has corroded, making the climb up and down exciting, but highly rewarding.
    The trails are well-marked, and the various terrain makes this amazing walk a terrific visitor challenge.

    There are no facilities along this route; everything's at the trail start. Dogs are not allowed on trails due to many livestock. Like the mountains, the weather changes quickly, causing tourists some trouble, thus all equipment must be well-organized. The closest spot to visit is the Cronin`s Yard

    The Dunloe Restaurant is a beautiful and chic restaurant. The staff are on top! We would like to thank Fredo an excellent French waiter for his motivation and dynamism
