Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a fantastic day with Ester on the Ring of Kerry/Killarney National Park. She was fun, informative and figured out our touring style pretty fast! It was great really getting to know Ireland. Something I couldn’t do on my own. I can’t recommend touring with them enough

We booked a 3 day tour with Ester to see Dingle Peninsula, Ring of Kerry, Skellig Ring, and the Beara Peninsula, including the Healy Pass. AND WOW! She was an excellent tour guide and so easy to talk to. We always had the option to jump out at anything interesting. She was informative, warm, and a pleasure to be with. The countryside was spectacular. Many times, we were the only ones around - there was no fighting for your turn to take a picture, and we could go at our own pace. She was very accommodating, and made sure we got to our dinner reservations each evening. I can't say enough good things about this experience!

We booked a full-day Ring of Kerry Tour with Ester, and it was terrific. Ester asked about our preferences, and we put ourselves in her hands. She focused on the Skellig Ring, promising a little more driving for some very special places, and she truly delivered. Her commentary was engaging and informative, and she checked in with us about various choices--ferry over to Valentia Island, visiting the Skellig Chocolate factory, etc.

A private tour was one of our bigger splurges on this trip, and it was 100% worth the cost. Would book with Ester and Kerry Experience Tours in the future, for trips to Kerry and beyond.

I’m writing this review super late because i’m a big procrastinator, however Kerry Experience Tours deserves to have the best ratings…as they do!

I found out about Kerry Experience Tours through and Ireland traveling group on Facebook. At first I was looking into renting a vehicle to explore Ireland with two other people. However, after reading about how difficult it can be to drive in narrow one lane roads and driving on the opposite side of the road, my group and I decided to look into private tours instead. This is the best decision we could have made.

I first reached out to Kerry Tours Experience to get an estimate for tours all around Ireland for a total of 6 full days. I quickly received and e-mail from Ester with a possible itinerary and an estimate. I replied to Ester that most of the itinerary looked great but that i would like to add visiting the Cliffs of Moher. Additionally, I asked Ester if there was any possibility of adding public transportation to lower the total cost of the tours so that we could stay within out budget. Ester was very understanding and came up with a new itinerary that included the changes we requested and ALL within out budget.

Ester’s husband was our driver for all of our tours! Gerrit was the nicest guy ever and super knowledgeable about Ireland and all the landmarks. Each morning he would pick us up on time and was very communicative throughout the trip! He played some good ol’ Irish music during our long drives and shared good stories about the people he’s driven. Gerrit is an excellent driver and always made sire we had everything we needed. He took us on lunch breaks and suggested the best gasoline station sandwiches! He said they were the freshest sandwiches in town, and he sure wasn’t lying! At the end of one of our tour days, we had Gerrit drop is off at dinner. Our accommodation was about 25 minutes away from the restaurant and we planned to call a taxi to take us ‘home’, however Gerrit surprised us and let us know that his wife Ester would be picking us up after dinner instead. He said he didn’t want the taxi driver to overcharge us and wanted to make sure we made it home safely! When I say Gerrit and Ester are the best, I really do mean it!!!

Our days started around 9 or 10am and ended around 3pm each day. We got to visit everything we wanted and then a little extra when the time permitted. By booking with Kerry Tour Experiences we got enjoy the beautiful scenery and did not have to worry or stress about anything! It truly made our first trip to Ireland magical!

If you’re looking into booking private tours, BOOK WITH KERRY TOUR EXPERIENCES!!!! Even if you’re looking for public tours, I would highly suggest to go private and reach out to Ester for a quote! It’a worth every single penny, I PROMISE!!

We used Kerry Experience tours for several days during our trip to Ireland. Gerritt was an amazing tour guide. He was so friendly and knowledgeable! We were a group of 7: ages 9-74, and all of us enjoyed our days with him. We will definitely be using Kerry Experience tours again!

My friend and I pre-arranged car transportation for our week-long visit to County Kerry, and we could not have been more thrilled with Kerry Experience Tours! In addition to being a calm, knowledgeable and highly experienced driver, Ester was a fun, kind, gracious and thoughtful host. Ester did our transfers between the Killarney train station and our accommodations at Westcove. She also helped us tailor two incredible, full days of exploration throughout the Ring of Kerry, Dingle and the Wild Atlantic Way. We learned so much from her about the region and its past and present. She also did some fantastic off-the-beaten-path detours to show us hidden gems we would never have found on our own. Although we didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Ester’s husband Gerrit, we are grateful for his delish fish-and-chips recommendation in Dingle — yum! Let Kerry Experience Tours do the driving so you can relax and enjoy the fabulous ride!

This was my third visit to the Ring of Kerry and first with a private tour guide and driver -- what a difference to not worry about driving! We thoroughly enjoyed Ester's company and appreciated her expert knowledge of the best routes, views and hidden treasures of the area. We enjoyed two full days of touring and worry free transfers to the train station. Highly recommend Kerry
Experience Tours.

We had a wonderful driving tour “off the beaten path” of the Ring of Kerry with Gerrit from Kerry Experience Tours. He filled the trip with interesting facts and historical context, was flexible, stopping where we wanted and making great suggestions to make sure we got what we wanted from the tour. It was a beautiful and well-spent day. We even were treated to a great playlist of Irish music (at our request) periodically along the way. And a chocolate tasting after a delicious stop for lunch! He gave us some perfect suggestions for the route we were taking after leaving Killarney. We had a great day trip with Kerry Experience Tours and would totally recommend their services, whether for a day trip or multiple day trip.

We had a delightful day touring the Dingle Peninsula with Ester. Not only did she listen to our requests, she researched the (geological) sites and provided us with a list to choose from. She gave us choice several times during the day which enabled us to get to all the sites on her list. We enjoyed hearing about the day to day life in Ireland as well as the more typical tourist attractions. We enjoyed lunch in a small pub and I was happily surprised at the gluten free toastie, Dingle brewed IPA and a taste of the award winning Dingle gin. Ester is a very good driver and navigated the narrow roads full of sheep expertly. Definitely recommend and we hope to return for another tour with Ester.
