    I don't relish giving average reviews of independent tour companies, but honestly, this was one of our least favorite days we spent touring. First of all, it was a rainy day, therefore there was little to see - so if you only have a short time in Ireland and it's rainy, I'd say skip it. Because that's no fault of the tour company, I gave the tour 3 stars, but for us it was more like a 1 star event. Second, we arrived 30 min early to get a front row seat only to find out they sell them online months in advance- I could have slept in (something to know before you go). Our driver Michael was a super nice guy and an excellent driver. I felt safe the entire time, but while he did his job well- which was driving the bus and keeping us safe, I don't feel like it's fair of the tour company to have the bus driver also be the tour guide. First, he's driving a huge coach bus with 40+ lives on windy rainy roads. While he did give some nice tid bits of information, he has quite a charming thick Irish accent, so most of us around us, couldn't understand him or hear him well. Not his fault, but had Deros hired an actual entertaining funny tour guide who could stand at the front and speak for a greater portion of the 6 hour tour (like most big coach tour buses do) it would have been much more entertaining on a rainy day. I would have happily paid an extra $10 to have that fun/entertaining tour guide, while feeling safe that Michael was focusing completely on the road keeping us safe. We made several stops at tourist traps which were fine, but it felt like a cattle herd in and out of the coffee shop and restaurant because several other coach buses were there as well. I did really enjoy the sheep dog demonstration, my favorite part of the 6 hours. I don't think it's a bad tour if that's what you are looking for, I just wouldn't do it again because the Ring of Kerry while nice, isn't breathtaking compared to other parts of Ireland to drive through. I also think it's important to know to bring cash, as some of the places (most importantly the sheep dog demonstration don't take cc). There was a beautiful waterfall at the end, but we had 15 min and it took 5 min to walk up and 5 min to walk back. The picturesque stops were more quick photo ops.

    NO COVID PRECAUTIONS

    I booked this tour based on the fact that face masks were required in public areas and low number of passengers taken per trip. (I was also charged some sort of covid up charge due to passenger volume.) More than half of the passengers on our 6 hour tour were not wearing face masks including the driver. The driver also did not let passengers know that face masks were required. There was very little ventilation on the bus.

    If you are not concerned with covid, and many people aren’t, I would recommend the tour as it was very informative and covered a lot of ground.

    If you are concerned about covid, I would recommend looking at other companies.

    Very nice ride around the ring of Kerry. A good amount of stops with plenty of time. Felt safe in the bus. Best part was the sheepdog demonstration for a small additional fee.

    We had an exceptional experience on our private tour of the Ring of Kerry. Peter was an outstanding tour guide. He was professional, courteous, on time and even early for our pick up right at our hotel. While his route was mapped out, he was very flexible with any additional things we wanted to see or stop to visit. He was extremely knowledgeable on the history and the local areas we visited. If you are planning a trip to Ireland, and want to avoid buses in crowds, I would highly recommend looking up Peter for his private guided tour. It was an exceptional experience that we will cherish for a lifetime! Thank you Peter!

    Expensive considering nothing is included. Most stops are completely unrelated to the Ring of Kerry - a gift shop, lunch in a total tourist trap, and a (very cool) sheepdog demonstration. Guide was totally uninterested and basically a paid passenger who would give a one-sentence comment about the places we passed every 10-15 minutes. Driver did an excellent job on the narrow winding roads.

    Our driver Batt was great, loads of local personal knowledge, made it such an enjoyable tour. Two 6 euro entrance fee stops were both very worthwhile, one only accepted cash. Small friendly group of fellow visitors, one couple got engaged at a particularly scenic spot

    I LOVED this tour. Batt was our driver/guide and he was wonderful. He was so engaging, funny and interesting and even sang beautifully for us. I was more than happy to not have to drive this route myself, given its windy and narrow roads, and the scenery was fantastic. I’m not sure if we just got an off-season rate, but we only paid 40 euro…not the 60 this site says. Side note: their website gives you an option to pay a few euro extra to get “priority seating” at the front of the bus and I was so glad we did. I get carsick easily, so it was helpful for that reason, but it also made it easier to get off the bus quickly and get photos before others got in the shot.
    Highly recommend!

    We did a private day tour (just 2 of us) of the Ring of Kerry and the Skellig ring as well. Our guide Sheila was very friendly, knowledgeable, funny and accommodating. The scenery and vistas were just spectacular and she sprinkled in a lot of Irish history along the way. We passed thru many small towns and villages including Portmagee, Skellig, lunch in Waterville, Sneem and the Killarney National Park. Lots of sheep, cows, and GREEN. Stopped for gourmet chocolates and lunch - centerpiece was the amazing Kerry Cliffs which were wild and magnificent. The first stop to the Kerry Bog Village Museum seemed obligatory and something we could have skipped if given the choice. Would have much rather spent time in the cute village of Sneem or seeing some other natural Irish wonder. All in all, a great day of touring in the Irish countryside.

    The sheep herding demonstration was far and away the best part of the tour! Be aware they do not take credit card for this so be sure to have some Euro ready (well worth it!). The remainder of the tour was sub par. We felt like the driver (he was very nice) was herding us between sites like the Border Collie herding sheep. We got a few minutes at each location, which was enough for a quick pic, then hustled back onto the bus to stay on schedule. I do think we would've enjoyed the tour a little more and given it a higher rating had we sat closer to the front of the bus and got to take in more sites head on and experience the windy roads, but we sat closer to the back. We drove the Dingle Peninsula the next day and felt that having control of our own experience put it above this tour. I also would've liked for the driver to be a little more informative. He mentioned a few things in passing, but it was not very engaging.

    My wife & I are on our honeymoon in Ireland for two weeks and this was a great excursion to take a day trip to explore the Ring of Kerry. Our driver/guide Dennis was fantastic. Knowledgeable, very funny, and on time. From watching border collies rounding up sheep (absolutely amazing) to going to turn of the century villages with wolf hounds, not to mention all the picturesque scenery for all your pictures, we recommend this trip for anyone. At one stop my wife had the chance to even pick up a baby lamb (which she loved) and I had the best ice cream in the town of Sneem. This was a very fun trip!!
