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.

    The tour was amazing. We visited breathtaking spots and had plenty of time to stroll around and get lost. The instructions were clear for returning and continuing. The guide was the best storyteller I've ever encountered, and it was a pleasure listening to him while learning a lot.

    Nevin, I believe was our tour guide’s name, was absolutely wonderful. Of course you expect every tour guide to be filled with facts but Nevin was entertaining as well. Telling funny jokes and impressing us with his magic tricks. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get to know the city and its history

    We had a wonderful tour of Kilkenny with John Britton as our guide. We were with two other couples both from the United States. Myself and my wife are from Dublin so we knew a bit about Kilkenny and its fascinating history and heritage. We were amazed at how much extra we learned from John. He is a great story teller. We liked everthing about this tour. The locations in which he told Kilkenny's story were so well chosen. It was easily the best city tour I have experienced.
    I know the other couples thought the same. The time just flew John was so good. He is a true professional who clearly loves what he does.

    We had a blast with our knight for the day! The kids thought it was so cool to walk around with a knight AND get to hold some of his armor and swords!! (Blunted for safety :). I would highly recommend for anyone looking for some history with a laugh and some fun.

    We opted for the guided tour and it was exceptional. Our guide was able to explain so many of the events and eras of the artifacts that it made it really come to life. I highly recommend the guided tour.

    We had a lovely tour with Pat. He is extremely knowledgeable about Kilkenny history and has a very engaging way of explaining it. He makes the stories come alive. Well worth the money.

    Our family (2 adults, 11y old daughter & 9y old son) did a hurling clinic with James & Charlie and had a blast! Good info and instruction at the start and lots of fun on the field! It was great to not just hear about hurling but to actually experience it! Highly recommend this experience.

    We had a guided tour yesterday with John and he was absolutely fantastic. While the museum was full of interesting exhibits from the past, it was John's abundance of knowledge and storytelling that really brought it all together and made it a great tour. Couldn't recommend enough!
