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.
Learn more about our review moderation.
*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    the kilkenny castle fee needs to be included, and I thought we spent a little too much time on the rail. Maybe the trains could go faster?

    Such a great tour! We had Gerry as our guide and he was full of informative facts and so kind. We had plenty of time in Kilkenny to do a few stops and more than enough time to enjoy the nature in Glendalough. The walk to the upper Lake was so peaceful. Highly recommend!

    Wonderful, historically knowledgeable guide who was jovial and fun and who interspersed his talks with jokes a bit of magic!

    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 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.

    Our day trip was wonderful. We had only ten in our group and enjoyed walking around Glendalough and Kilkenny at our own pace. The scenery was beautiful, along winding roads through the mountains and sheep country. Richard was a lovely guide, very funny and knowledgeable of the area. We recommend booking a tour with HilltopTreks.

    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.

    This trip has been years in the planning with our friends. I was unsure exactly what to expect from our guided trip around the North and West of Ireland but it was incredible. Our guide, Brian Barry, was phenomenal. He was organized, gave us great recommendations at each stop, and was always providing us with information and stories to keep the drives entertaining. I cannot wait to go back and visit again.

    We had a fantastic tour with Dan around Kinsale, Blarney, & Kilkenny. The scenery was gorgeous, the coach was very comfortable, and Dan was incredibly knowledgeable and warm. We saw so much more than we would have seen on our own and Dan had great local knowledge and answers to all our questions!

    The four days tour is well complete but guides vary greatly in Quality. Quigg was absolutely excellent for the day to the Cliff of Moher and Galvay , others from others days were Closer to organisers and not great guides although they made some efforts,they were missing context and a little short on explaning their trips. The day in Dublin is conceived as a DIY and was even missing an organiser, so not Bad but could certainly do better.....

    Although it took awhile, we received our refund for a 6 day tour. I don’t believe they are dishonest or scammers. They were like all of us caught off guard when Covid happened and it could not be foreseen. I think like many business models they use future booking money to pay for expenses and salaries for current tours and when refunds were asked for there were no future tours to count on. I will most surely book with them again for a tour in 2022.
