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.

    Staying in Castleisland with friends a trip isnt complete without a walk along the lovely river walk. Lovely benches to get along the way. I would recommend strolling and admiring the surroundings. I enjoyed this particularly this time as I are a beautiful lunch in Nana Beas and the walk was needed afterwards. Stuffed full of delicious food.

    A really enjoyable & interesting trip, made all the more enjoyable by the phallictites (once you see it, you can’t unsee them 🤣). Family of teenagers felt it should be renamed …

    Well signed walks with different routes to choose from with plenty of picnic tables along the way
    Trails are popular for trail running and walks are up and down hillsides through forest and open areas
    Children’s play ground and fairy houses through the walks
    Fair play to all the volunteers who keep this amenity well maintained
