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!
Overall, it was a good trip. The driver (Paudie) was friendly, navigated well, and told excellent stories. We enjoyed hearing more about Ireland’s history based on what we saw. The stops had great views and it was beautiful. The only issue was that some of the other passengers were consistently late returning to the bus at stops, making the bus arrive back in town about thirty minutes late. This affected our evening reservations. Otherwise, good trip!
Very fun and interesting trip to Dingle. My complaint would be the awful, painful music the driver played on the way back to Killarney (I’m Irish, and generally enjoy good, authentic Irish music), and having to stop to pick up one person’s iPhone left at a stopping point earlier in the day, without advising anyone or apologizing for the 15 minute wait in the bus without the driver.
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
The family business has operated this type of tour for over 250 years. Great experience with local guides and local history. Horse carriage and boat ride were excellent. You get a real sense of the land and the people with this outdoor activity.
