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.

    Fascinating- must be able to handle narrow darker areas plus walking up and down 125 metal steps with good hand rails. Guide very knowledgeable and patient with the young children in the tour group. Maximum number in each group is 18 so peak season definitely make a reservation online.

    Yet another gem and a must. We have gone back for several years and never get enough. A photographer's dream location.

    One does not expect to find such a beautiful garden on the windswept Wet Coast of Ireland but this one is well worth a visit, especially if you also have a garden of your own. You will not only get some wonderful ideas but you will be able to purchase some excellent specimens of many of the plants you have seen. Well worth a short detour from the Wild Atlantic Way to see it.

    This is a nice area to explore with several different walks for all different abilities.
    While you are there be sure to stop at the Burren Perfumery with its beautiful gardens and wonderful homemade food!

    Take a ferry to the Aran Islands! You will not regret it. Great views of the Cliffs of Mother and excellent for pictures and taking walks.

    My wife and I love traditional Irish music. While in Ireland, we have gone to several pubs to enjoy it. The evening at Doolin Music House was a delight and did not disappoint. If you like Trad Music, you will like this. Great music, good stories and background info, all in a warm house setting. Highly recommend.

    One of the best pubs in Ireland for traditional music and timeless atmosphere. The food is great and reasonably priced as well. Hike from the Cliffs of Moher to Doolin and stop here at the end!

    Fantastic experience hiking the moors with Pat. He takes you beyond the hordes at the visitors center and sprinkles his tour liberally with local anecdotal information and lore. Beautiful countryside, competent and qualified quide with deep roots in the area. Highly recommend!

    The water was extremely rough the day we went; seemed like the boat was going straight up and down the swells. So many people getting ill and the crew handled it so well. Everyone was so friendly and we never felt unsafe. We also love that it is a family owned/run business. And we could easily walk to the dock from our Airbnb. I highly recommend using anti sea sickness meds/bands if you are going out to the Aran Islands.

    We hired Jonathan for two (non-consecutive) days. 1) Pick us up at Shannon airport in morning and take us around until late afternoon when we could check-in to Doolin Inn and 2) Take us from Doolin Inn on a tour and drop us in the afternoon at Kenmare.

    Yup, that's really all the specifics we gave him and he put together two wonderful days of exploration along with insightful conversation along the way. We were so pleased with Jonathan's service, professionalism and charm. He recognized my husband’s love of old stonework and subtly slipped in some shopping for me.

    He was responsive from my original reach out through our final drop off. We were in a very comfortable upscale sedan.

    I highly recommend his services.

    We did this tour in May 2017, so this review is very overdue. But it was such a great time, I had to write now when I came upon some lost brochures about our trip. There was one hill climb that was a challenge and I got off to walk, but I wasn't alone and wasn't made to feel bad about it. There were great views from up atop that hill. Patrick is so knowledgeable about the area and Ireland's history. We ended up down at Fanore Beach after a nice downhill cruise. The reservation process was easy on their website and the bikes were generally comfortable; not like having our own bikes so maybe next trip we'll box up our gear, but would still go again for a tour with Patrick and crew. Thanks for a memorable morning on our last day in Ireland!
