      FUN !!!
      This was fun. Mike (our driver) and Ruby (our spirited horse) make the trip informative and fun. The park is beautiful and the ride is well worth it.

      Flawless and Fun
      I can't say enough about the company. From the moment I began making inquiries, everyone was helpful, patient and thorough, especially Laura. We had a party of 9 who needed different tours, 5 of us across the Gap and over the lakes, and 4 who merely wished to go up the Gap and back from Kate Kearney's cottage. Communication was flawless. Everyone was waiting for us just as promised- since the first party had 3 separate guides. All were knowledgeable, friendly and thorough. The tours were comfortable, safe and exciting. The Gap is a place you don't want to miss, and if you can see it with Killarney Jaunting Cars.

      Jaunting with Michael
      We did a jaunting car tour around the Killarney National Park. We started and finished at Ross Castle. We struck gold with the combination of Michael and Jessie the horse. The rain clouds cleared and the sun came out at just the right time. Michael had some interesting and humorous banter including local history and plant identification. A very well spent 3/4's of an hour.

      Jaunt ride with lots of laughs!
      Our driver Joseph made this experience wonderful. Horse's name was Jacoby, pretty much self driving. Joseph was a great Irish storyteller and had us all laughing the whole ride. Took some pictures and even taught us how to use the camera on our phones. Great experience, lots of fun.

      Must do when in Killarney
      Such a beautiful way to visit Killarney National Park. I highly recommend. Our driver was very kind and knowledgeable and his horse Joey was a sweetheart with a big personality. The carriage was covered so even if it’s a rainy day this is a great experience. The carriage is roomy enough for a couple or a whole family.

      Enjoyable Jaunty Ride
      Very interesting and enjoyable tour through part of Killarney National Park. Enjoyed the scenery and the stop at Ross Castle. Jarvey was very hospitable. Visitors to Killarney should experience this.

      So much fun and amazing views.
      We had so much fun and really enjoyed the tour. It was a great way to see the park without having to walk the entire thing. And our guide Johnny was very friendly and gave us so much information and history on the park. It was cold out when we went and it was nice to end with hot tea afterwards. We would highly recommend this and we would definitely do it again.

      Loved our jaunt!
      We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day! It was a cool but sunny day and the scenery was stunning. Our driver was friendly and knowledgeable. We loved learning about the history of this place and walking around the castle. This was a highlight of our trip and could not have done anything better! Thank you!!!

      Family Fun on a Jaunty Car
      We had an amazing ride through the Killarney National Park with our driver pointing out the native fauna as well as introduced plants to the park. He also told us the story of how the park had been donated by a family from Killarney to preserve the green space. We saw the wildlife, the lake and of course Ross Castle. There were also a few of Irelands native deer-the red deer plus a smaller Japanese Sika deer, roaming the woods too. It was a very peaceful and enjoyable ride for all of us plus he made sure to stop at great spots for many wonderful photos!

      Really enjoyable Tour
      Myself and my husband took the jaunting car tour to Ross Castle with Lewis and Megan the horse. Lewis was very knowledgeable with loads of information about the Killarney National Park and it's surroundings, including the mountains and their names and history. We stopped at Ross Castle for a little wander around and then travelled back back to our pick-up point at the Great Southern hotel, where Lewis took some photos for us before we got off. We both really enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend it.

      Awesome Experience, Great Guide
      One of our tour excursions during our coach tour stop in Killarney, was to take a jaunting car ride, through Killarney National Park, and out to where to see Ross Castle. It was an awesome experience, through a beautiful park. But what made the trip the best experience, was our jarvie (guide), who called himself "Magic Mike". He was full of information, telling stories and explaining things we were seeing, pretty much the entire time we were touring. This one was included in our tour, so I'm not sure what it would cost to do it. But whatever it is, it would be worth it. It's a couple hours you will thoroughly enjoy.

      A Must-do Activity! Don’t miss it!
      Our driver, Lewis, was on time. Very friendly and accommodating and told us all about the 6 generations of cart drivers and some of the local history! He waited patiently while we looked around the castle and took our picture in the cart, with Archie, his horse, and in front of the castle. It was one of our favorite things we’ve done on our trip! Highly recommend.

      Killarney must do!
      It was so much fun! The “driver” Paul gave information about things we were seeing and Killarney National Park in general. He was definitely a character. Our horse, Ruby, did a great job as well, although at the start and stop she’s a little skittish around the big buses. The park was lovely then got to Ross Castle and walked around a bit & got some hot chocolate. Paul even dropped me off at the horse parking area instead of the pinpointed start/stop zone as it was closer to the next place I was going. My only complaint is it didn’t last longer.

      Great conversation and carriage ride!
      The driver was so informative and friendly. He takes excellent care of his horse and they obviously work very well together! The castle and literature about it is amazing!

    Let me first start by setting the scene: two older Americans driving only 2.1 miles missing turns rerouting to finally come upon an office with horses nearby. It’s raining we go in to check in only to find out we had booked with a different company! My heart sank a bit but…. They absolutely made it happen for us! The office gals let us park there at the office, arranged a driver Cal and horse Trixie to come and take us on this tour my heart was so set on. Not many establishments would do this and I was deeply touched by it. Thanks to everyone in that company who worked together to make this happen! It truly was awesome!!!

    One of the highlights of my trip to Killarney. A leisurely trip throught he National Park with John and his horse Billie. Met him in downtown Killarney. Really nice to be just our family of 4 (3 generations) in the jaunting cart. Our guide John chatted and answered questions - it was not the usual canned prepared speial you often get on holiday tours. Lots of interesting information about the places we saw and other activities we could do later. He knew just where to suggest pics and took them so that we could all be in them. Wonderful memories. Highly recommend!

    This was worth every breathtaking moment. Paul was our guide and made the trip even that much more special. He was very knowledgeable. Told us a lot about the history of Ireland and the names of the mountains, rivers, and stories about Ross Castle. He was witty, fun, and had a lot of knowledge of places to visit after the tour. We highly recommended Paul and his horse Lady “Di”.

    My mom and I took the tour from Killarney to Ross Castle, we ended up being the only 2 people in the jaunty. On this chilly November day, Paul was a great tour guide, friendly and informative. He offered blankets, answers to our many questions about Ireland and lots of laughs as we travelled through the park. It was convenient to our hotel in town but also to the city centre car park.

    My husband and I went with two of our daughters to Ireland and saw so many things and all agreed the jaunty car ride was our favorite. The guide was Louis and his horse Sweetie. Louis was funny and quick with stories and information we will always remember. “ABC” was used throughout our trip. We wouldn’t have made the ride at all without Laura who went above and beyond to make sure we made it. Thank you Louis! Highly recommend this company!

    We had an absolute blast with Paul and our lovely horse Benson. The wool blankets are a plus and we took it at the perfect time as it was raining all day. The service is informative, comfortable, and beautiful. Paul was an absolute riot. This is definitely something that you should do to tour parts of the National Park.

    What an amazing 90 mins we had with James and his house Megan

    We were travelling with two small boys and James was super kind and caring with them and really did not mind their many questions and occasional over excitement.

    The jaunt around the National Park was so lovely even on a gloomy rainy day in April.

    The deer were a real treat to see in the wild.

    The stop at Ross Castle was really lovely too. Short and sweet.

    HIghly recommend if you are visiting Killarney.

    We picked the ride up from outside the Outlet Centre/Southern Hotel
