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.

    Seul club équestre ouvert à cette époque de l'année. Accueil familial très chaleureux et qui s'adapte à votre planning (le notre était très serré). La promenade s'est très bien passée malgré une averse de grêle. L'encadrement est très professionnel et sympathique. Le niveau de chacun(e) est pris en compte et les chevaux associés en conséquence à leur cavalier(e). Merci pour votre gentillesse et adaptabilité.

    The only stable open at this time of year. A very warm and welcoming family who can adapt to your schedule (our was very tight). The ride went was great and peaceful and naturally stunning as you expect in Connemara, despite a hailstorm. The guides are very professional and friendly. Everyone's level is taken into account and the horses are matched accordingly. THank you for your kindness and adpatability

    I highly recommend a trip to Dummindoo stud Westport.
    Lots of well kept horses to see, I booked a carriage ride for my mums 70th Birthday as a surprise. Loved every minute of it. Everyone enjoyed the experience thanks to Paddy joe for making us feel very welcome and looked after us the whole time.
    The beautiful horse that pulled the carriage was Very calm and put us at ease, we had two young children in our family group, they loved the experience. They loved Podge the horse that pulled the cart.
    Very friendly family run business.
    Would love to do it again!!!

    A great day out cycling. Either hire a bike or bring your own. Ideal for gravel bikes but fine for road bikes too. Check the wind strength and direction before you set out as parts of the route are quite exposed.

    We did the House in the Woods. There were 3 of us and it was lots of fun. We didn't make it on to the leaderboard but with some help we did escape within the hour. It was more than challenging enough for us (adult, 14 year old and 11 year old) and there was a great sense of achievement when we escaped!! I would highly recommend it and we will be back to do the all other rooms in the next few months.

    Excellent customer service and went above and beyond for us. Travis was extremely accommodating on the phone and Danny was good enough to bring our bags to Achill for us to save the back some hassle on the Greenway! Highly recommend the Greenway and using Clew Bay Bike hire if you do.

    Be honest! We have all been putting off catching up with family and friends since covid. We got used to our own company and skipping the annual gathering. Well no need to put off the family gathering, reunion with friends, stag/hen any longer. Collanmore island is the spot for you. Take the reins as the family social committee and Ciaran will not let you down.

    I organised the stay for my extended family (Ages 11 plus) for a two night weekend trip in July. Just to firstly note that the island was well beyond our expectations (even though I had very high expectations in the first place). From the views to the massive hot tub. The bedrooms to the pub. Everything was amazing! I'm surprised Ciaran actually rents it out and just doesnt keep it to himself to live. I would never leave the island if I lived there.

    Firstly, we started our evening with a family BBQ. After that we moved onto a few drinks with chats and games in the cocktail bar area and personnel pub! It was a late night to say the least. The next morning we had an amazing kayaking session which is a must do. Ciaran made it super fun by including challenges throughout and taking us around the bay. We spend the rest of the day lounging in the sun, enjoying the massive hot tub and hiking to the viewpoint. A few final jumps off the pier into the sea, our takeaway was delivered by boat for us all to enjoy before a few drinks around the camp fire for our last evening. If I have not sold this to you already as the perfect getaway for a big group there must be something wrong.

    Ciaran and his team went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. They really went the extra mile. For example they went out of their way to get an extra takeaway for one of our family members that had dietary requirements. Special thanks to Nigel too that was brilliant helping our with the kayaking session and delivering our takeaway by boat!

    We will definitely be back. A weekend that we will never forget. I know its always going to be a topic brought up at every family gathering. 10 out of 10 experience.

    About a month ago myself and 9 of my family members (ranging from really young teenagers to 50s) went Coasteering. Some of my family members were wary about going and weren't sure if they would enjoy it, but by the end of the tour every single one of us thought it was the coolest thing we had done in our lives! Our guides were wonderful (Kristen and Brenda I believe were their names) and Louise was super helpful coordinating the tour for us. None of us had ever done anything like this before and the guides really made us feel at ease, and the swimming/climbing was not as hard as expected. The climb, swim, and cliff jumps were all amazing and we even got to swim through a cave at the end. I would highly recommend this tour and company if you are in the area, it's an experience you can't miss!

    Spent two days with Seamus and Fionn to complete the National Powerboat Certificate. The course is very practical in its presentation and upon completion, you realise that you have acquired skills that will prove very useful in boat preparation, boat handling, manoeuvres and the safety aspects required to skipper your own craft. I highly recommend Bellacragher Bay Boat Club and I intend doing further courses with them. Apart from the boating aspects of the course, the training area is spectacular - sea, mountains , wildlife - can’t praise the experience enough. Thank you Seamus and Fionn.
