It was a long day of driving. Leave early in the morning to avoid all the tourist buses. Personally I would not do the whole route again. Enjoyed The Lakes and National Park.

My husband and I took the Ring of Kerry Day Trip recently. Our wonderful driver/commentator was Ray. He did a GREAT job of 'taking care' of all of us. It was so nice to sit and relax, and listen to Ray's commentary all the way along the tour. He told us some fun jokes and

Our guide was wonderful! He was full of interesting facts and stories about the landscapes and people of the area, sprinkled with corny jokes and dad-isms. The weather was windy and rainy throughout our day, so we mostly just saw fog, but the few sights we stopped at that had

Many thanks for your five star review naturally we are delighted with this feedback and appreciate you taking the time to write this review. I am sorry to hear that you were not keen on the lunch stop - it is extremely beautiful location and it also caters for coach tours as a lot of establishment enroute would not have this facility and speedy service is important to keep to the schedule given a lot of our customers have onward train or bus connections. I hope you enjoy the rest of your Irish holidays. Thanks a million.

I'm only nineteen, so I couldn't rent a car to go around the Ring of Kerry. If I wanted to see it, I'd have to do it with a tour. I suppose it's better this way than not seeing it at all, but I didn't feel like there was very much freedom. The tour took us to places I didn't

Thank you very much Holly for your considered review, sadly it seems you did not enjoy the tour because you would have liked more freedom to see different things. The Ring of Kerry tour is on our website and shows the itinerary and this explains all the stops on the tour. The Ring of Kerry is 179 kilometre so the tour has to keep moving and we need to be back in town for about five due to other passengers who may have other travel plans . It is very important to us to make sure we are looking after all our customers so I would suggest to you Holly that maybe you would have been better off on a private programme which would allow you the flexibility if you desire tailored stops to suit your particular interests. I hope you enjoy the rest of your Irish holidays and take home happy Irish memories.

Went with my husband and a friend. We were debating driving ourselves or doing this tour and we are glad we did the tour instead. We had Ray as our tour guide who was great. We learned a lot and he pointed out things along the Ring of Kerry that we wouldn’t have known or stopped

What a sparkling review and thank you most sincerely for taking the time to write it and post it up on trip advisor - we genuinely do appreciate it. That is sound advice about doing a tour rather than driving yourself because our driver/guides bring the all area alive with the history & funny stories.
