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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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

    Had a great time with Mike. Fished the Felte and Killarney rivers. Ended up with 3 brown trout, caught swinging wet flies. I am pretty experienced, but still learned new wet fly techniques from Mike.

    Price was good, day was fun and I caught fish. What more can a traveling fisherman ask for?

    The absolute highlight of the trip! We had bikes children and a dog aboard including all the adults and it was a laugh a minute. Dux is a gem and his laugh needs to be bottled and sold as a tonic.
    Highly recommend!

    Our group of 4 had a brilliant time in Glengarriff, Mark was a great guide and made sure we were all comfortable and getting on okay in our kayaks. He had lots of great local knowledge and pointed out the natural beauty of the area including the seals and white tailed sea eagles!

    Did a kayak tour with Mick around Ross castle, he was a really good guide with good knowledge that he delivered well to us all, he made the history of Ross Castle and it’s surroundings very interesting.
