What people are saying about Killarney
We had cold, rainy weather but the region is absolutely beautiful regardless. The boat driver was hilarious, the kind of story teller you'd imagine for Ireland, and helped make the best of the weather. He had great knowledge of the history of the tours and the area and was good at targeting information to the group. Our coordinator, Laura, was a bundle of positivity and helped make sure every aspect of our tour went smoothly. She was wonderful conversational and helpful with our tour. The jaunting car driver was short abrupt with commentary, and surprised my dad when he got kicked out to walk near the peak (they won't pressure the horses more than necessary and I had warned our group in advance that this was a possibility). Laura coordinated this part for us so the driver isn't part of their company, but it probably could have been a little better if he was more sociable or explained a bit on his own rather than when prompted. Overall, it was still a great tour and we'd recommend it!
My husband and I booked this fabulous tour of Killarney National Park the day before we went. An easy bus ride through flat parts of the park, followed by a fantastic jaunting car ride up and over the spectacular Gap of Dunloe, a pause for an Irish coffee and snack midway at Brandon’s Cottage, then a small, open boat ride across three lakes and two rivers, finally ending at our starting point at Ross Castle, a 15th Century tower house castle. An incredible way to see so much of the park. Definitely a highlight of our Ireland trip!
DJ is a special person. Not only did he ensure everyone's safety and pleasure throughout the day, he was very generous with his comments, stories and songs. He has a way of engaging people to participate and share their joy of the moment. Of course, it helped that the scenery along the Ring of Kerry was spectacular and the weather was exceptionnally good. To my wife, daugther and myself, this turned out to be a magical day for us.
I give this a good review. Thank goodness it was not raining as it would have been miserable. The wind was blowing making it a little cold, but the blanket provided did help. Our driver was quite nice and very informative. My Son and he had a few things in common so they chatted during the tour. It was especially nice as we were the only 2 on the tour.
It was all beautiful. The guide was exceptional, helpful and polite helpful. The places were beautiful especially the western part of the coasts. The time available to visit the places was a bit 'reduced given the amount of things to see but then nothing to object. Good experience
