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 peaceful little place of reflection. Rosary is said here every evening in May.
    Must see if you are passing through.

    Lough Gara riding stables can be summed up by the wonderful experience provided by the owners and staff. This is truly a wonderful experience, our children have never been happier than when they we’re taking part in the pony camp or the birthday parties hosted here. I cannot praise Adrienne, Jimmy and staff enough. They really do provide a wonderful caring and memorable experience. We have gone here for the last 3 or 4 years and would recommend anyone to take part in the experience. Thank you so much Jimmy and Adrienne

    Spent half a day with a leisurely drive around the lough with our first stop at Isle of Innisfree with a great view across the lough and plenty of walks. Highly recommended

    This is a very interesting site in Coolavin. I'm not sure what the previous reviewer meant by it was difficult to get to. Maybe they were in the wrong site. But this well is just off the main Ballaghderren road. It is just at the beginning of a boreen so it is easy to drive right up to. The well has "cure stones" cemented on the top of the wall. They were thought to bring fertility and women would take a stone with them and bring it back when they got pregnant. It also has some interesting carvings, the best of them is of the crucifixion. The well is not maintained so its in a very poor state. But seems to add to the "ancientness" of it.

    The whole area of Clogher/Coolavin has some great sites. Just down the road is the Clogher stone fort (one of my favorites). There is never anyone around because you have to hike through a woods that is always soaked to get to it. Recommend wearing some Wellies if you want to get there. Also near is the Four Altars as well as Moygara Castle and some Crannogs on Lough Gara. Definitely worth visiting the area!
