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.

    It was beautiful! We had Micheal as our driver and he was great! Was wonderful seeing all of these stops we probably would’ve missed on our own and we didn’t have to worry about driving.

    Worthy of your time! This tour was the highlight of our recent vacation to Ireland. The Gap of Dunloe is one of the prettiest places I've ever seen. The tour was well done, we had different guides for the horse carriage part and the boat part -- they could not have been more opposite but were both amusing and informative in their own ways.

    Because this was my first trip to Ireland I decided to try a private tour while visiting Killarney with my family. I decided on Wild Atlantic Tours to do the Ring of Kerry and Skellig Ring. We had such a wonderful time with Paudie and I highly recommend him. He was genuine, very accommodating, knowledgeable about the area and its rich history as he grew up in County Kerry, and had a great sense of humor that had us laughing a good part of the time. We traveled in a very comfortable touring van and as we saw amazing scenery, historical sites, part of Killarney National Park, the Kerry High Cliffs, and a slate quarry he entertained us with a lot of local stories. We stopped often to enjoy the sites and take a multitude of photos. We had a delicious lunch at a seafood restaurant. We will carry with us a very memorable experience thanks to him.

    Lee was a wonderful tour guide and was very accommodating. The cities visited on the trip were beautiful and unique. To our surprise, every meal we had was fabulous. All B&Bs arranged with the tour were comfortable and welcoming. This trip was everything we expected it to be and was an all around success thanks to Lee and Irish Experience Tours.

    Damien was such a nice host. Two children 10 and 8 thoroughly enjoyed their trip and spotted heron and deer. We took lots of photos.

    You can’t go wrong spending the day with Mary! Traveled for two days with college age boys, and Mary kept them interested the whole time! She is a wealth of information, lovely personality, makes you feel like you have known her forever. We had little issues with winter weather, but Mary was able to still find those hidden gems to visit. Highly recommend the Killarney and the Dingle tours with Mary, you won’t regret it!

    We had a great day tour. The walk through the Gap was incredibly gorgeous. We were glad we did the 7 mile walk instead of the horse/buggy. Slow walkers should be aware - you won't make the boat if you dawdle. We stopped to take pictures along the way and had 30 minutes for lunch. The boat ride was lovely. The bus transport was a little frustrating. We were told to go to Old Weir hotel where we picked up the bus. Then, the bus took us back into town where we waited 30 minutes for no apparent reason (this may have cut into the walking time). And when we got dropped off, there was no instruction. The driver just pointed and said go that way. It's difficult to get lost, but a map or schedule would have been reassuring.

    We did the two-day Wild Atlantic Way tour and it started out great. Our tour guide for the first half of day 1 was lovely and told great stories along the way. The lunch in Doolin was delicious — highly recommend the fish and chips. And, the Cliffs of Moher were worth the trip, despite the fog that rolled in. Unfortunately, the tour fell apart when we reached our night’s accommodations. It was as though the motel (I hesitate to use “B&B” because it connotes a higher level of accommodation.) was not expecting us at all. The proprietor was scattered and seemingly unaware of our group’s needs, not to mention unwilling to apologize for it. At breakfast the next morning, there wasn’t room for everyone to eat and the food took so long, several people didn’t get to eat at all. But, the kicker was that the one restaurant in town that was open the night of our arrival, apparently ran out of food. Luckily, our guide Dan was a savior and took us to the next town over (Dingle) for dinner. Dingle is a darling town and I recommend it as an alternative to Annascaul anyway. Overall, we had a good time and saw a lot but I can’t give it 5 stars due to the snags on the accommodations and meals.
