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.

    Ballyhoura Walk : July 2021
    We are a group of 10 walkers ranging in ages from 28 to 68 and with varying degrees of fitness. Our aim was to walk from Liscarroll to Tipperary town on the Ballyhoura walking trail in three and half days. The walk is mostly well marked, challenging in parts but well worth the trip. We stayed in the Park Hotel in Charleville which I would highly recommend for their accommodation, food and friendliness.
    Thursday afternoon: Liscarroll to Shinagh
    This was a walk along quiet rural roads past the Donkey Sanctuary and through the quiet village of Churchtown. There is a grocery shop here, in a somewhat hidden location, where you can get coffee, ice-cream etc. As you leave Churchtown, you walk on a busy road for about 3km before reaching quiet roads again. The walk was 12km long and took 3hours approx for all to complete.
    Friday; Shinagh to Ballyorgan
    We left Shinagh, crossed the railway line and joined the main Cork road. We walked for about 500 metres towards Charleville along the side of the main road before taking a right turn onto a rural road. We walked uphill along the road until we reached a sign pointing to the right. This boreen was overgrown and impassable, so we continued along the road, taking the next right, all the time climbing. We re-joined the signposted way some time later at a left turn when we went off road and walked along forest roads. Take care not to miss a right turn with a barrier across it. We followed the signs, all the time climbing until we reached a sign pointing to the right up a steep stone path to Carrow Mountain. The views from up there were worth the effort. The path down was tough underfoot along scree initially and across heather covered ground where the path is not always obvious. We re-joined the forest roads near Philip’s castle and walked downhill to the Bike Trail Shop. A number of the walkers stopped here, the rest continued on to Glenosheen and from there to Ballyorgan. The walk was about 32km long and took about 8 hours. It was a most enjoyable hike but I wouldn’t recommend doing this walk on a wet day. Remember to bring food and water.
    Saturday : Ballyorgan to Galbally
    We left Ballyorgan and walked along the road for 2km before turning right and walking up hill along the edge of the forest all the time following the signs. We exited on to a rural road through farmland and into another forest where there we got great views of the surrounding landscape as we walked. There was a steep descent on to a busy road before arriving in Kilfinane where we got lunch. Leaving Kilfinane, we followed the road uphill for 1.5km before turning left onto a horse path, then a cut away forest and then along the edge of a forest. We descended into Ballylanders along rural roads and from Ballylanders to Galbally along a quiet road. The walk was 28km long approx. and took us 7 hours.
    Sunday: Galbally to Tipperary
    The rain poured down and unfortunately we had to abandon the walk but will return to complete it at a future date.
    Summary: This is a great hike across varying terrain and with some outstanding views. A certain level of fitness is required but slow and steady will get you there.

    Didn't know what to expect when I first arrived with my three teenage daughters. Must say we had a ball. Our karts were modified for the younger age as there were some kids there with their families and I thought it would be very slow.
    Was I wrong !! These kids took over Luke pros's 😅 I thought 20 minutes wasn't nearly enough time though as you only kind of get into the speed after 10/15 minutes, especially if it is your first time ... And then 5 minutes later you're finished . 30 minutes would be better especially for the price. 30€ each.
    Other than that great fun and a definite must !!

    My boyfriend and I went on the group trek. Both of us really enjoyed ourselves. Having very little horse riding experience before hand, I strongly recommend this to people of all abilities. We loved the set up, the horses were gorgeous and the other animals running around (kittens & dogs) make this thoroughly enjoyable for animal lovers!! Thanks again to everyone at Boskill!

    Went there twice in two weeks with no previous experience.

    Stephen helped us understand the basics and we had the best time in a fun, safe and professional environment.

    I would highly recommend to anybody.

    Absolutely amazing! Mary, her daughter, the scenery, horses, just everything was perfect! Mary intuitively knew which horses would best suit people. They made sure the trek to the ruins was safe and fun for everyone including the horses. Went back another day for ring riding. Again, perfectly amazing! The Clarina Equestrian Centre was THE highlight of my trip!

    Hired a bike for my wife to do some of the Limerick Greenway. Jim organised to deliver(& collect) the bike from the b&b we stayed at(which was in Newcastle-West). Jim made sure we were aware that if we had any difficulty to ring him and he would send out a fella to come and fix/replace the bike, anywhere along the greenway.
    In fact he attempted to deliver the bike to the b&b before we got there and came back a second time after we had arrived to deliver us the bike(at no extra cost).
    As it turned out the bike was ideal. Everything just worked on it - start to finish, no problems. It was a pretty light bike too. Based on my and my wifes experience, I would highly recommend using pedal pursuits.

    Myself and my daughter spent a gorgeous morning at Clonshire. Lovely gentle hack through their stunning grounds. Friendly atmosphere, and happy, healthy horses. A superb professional set up. Catered for my slight nervousness (my excuse is I started riding too old!) but also for my braver 13 year old daughter. I'm already planning a return trip. Popped to Adare 5mins away for lunch after. Wonderful day.

    We landed in Ireland the morning of April 2nd and waiting for us with his larger than life Irish smile was Brendan McCarthy, our tour guide/driver for the next 9 days. We were a group of 18 in total and we were on a 56 seat coach. Brendan could slither around the tightest corners with that coach and to be sure, we arrived on time every time to all our destinations. Brendan is a passionate man when revealing his Ireland and we gained volumes of knowledge and our hearts and minds are stuffed with warm memories and plenty of stories to share with those back home. We would definitely recommend Brendan to enhance your trip to Ireland.
