The wind and rain did nothing to dampen the fabulous experience with Shamus guiding us through the fall weather to Ross Castle through the park. Historical information and his sense of humor truly helped us enjoy our Killarney experience. I hope everyone can experience the deer sightings and the changes in the weather as we did. It was fun, entertaining, and well worth our time.

I took my husband to Ireland for his 60th birthday and we’ve been having a blast. His favorite film is “The Quiet Man” and he wanted to give me a piece of Ireland by going on a horse and buggy ride. Our driver Dan was amazing. He was very informative and personable. We went through Killarney State Park to the Ross Castle and then jaunted through town. A great experience

We had a lovely tour of part of the national park and Ross Castle. Our driver, Johnnie, was extremely pleasant, told us information about the park and sights along the way, and even told a few jokes. It was a great experience and Johnnie was awesome! Well worth the time and money!

Kevin was an amazing driver. He has a great knowledge of local history and the park. He was a storyteller in the repeating of Ross Castle history. Visitors love hearing tales of folklore, legends and history. Dusty had returned to service after the Covid break and what a beautiful equine. She was so friendly at the end. Highly recommend Kevin and his tour

I brought my daughter to Killarney this weekend, and our one-hour Jaunting Car trip was the highlight of the whole weekend for her and me! "Moody" Judy our horse has been the talk of the entire weekend. Our guide Eoghan was very knowledgeable and great with my 9-year-old daughter as he taught her about Killarney and made her laugh. I Couldn't recommend this Killarney Jaunting Cars enough!
