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.

    The bus trip was really great. We would recommend the 3 day trip and Cash made it really fun. We felt like we saw everything advertised and more. The B&B accommodations were really nice. Everything was on time and we always felt safe.

    Taking a tour with Joe is the best way to see the Ring of Kerry, hands down! Sure, you could drive yourself around the ring, but you'll spend most of your time with your eyes glued to the incredibly narrow roads and you definitely won't get the insider info only a native like Joe can share. Highly recommend letting Joe make this trip easier and much more informative, while you sit back and enjoy. He has a number of stops lined up, some of which are tourist attractions and some off the beaten path. At every stop, Joe knew the proprietor, who gave us fast-pass, VIP access. From a sheep herding demo to lunch in Port Magee with lovely locals to a cliff visit and much more, this day was one we'll always remember. Thank you, Joe!

    On our first day we had Don who took us through to Galway he was very friendly extremely knowledgeable and made the start to the trip very enjoyable. On day 2 and for the remainder of our trip we had Dan who was equally great he ensured everyone had a great time and gave us as much time possible at all the stops. Definitely recommend

    Mary surpassed our expectations as a tour guide. The experience was amazing. After one day touring the dingle Peninsula, we changed our plans so that she could take us on another day trip of the ring of Kerry. She has extensive knowledge on Irish culture and history and took us to places that that other tours did not go to. All we can say is she "made our trip to Ireland very special” thank u Mary”

    I booked this tour through trip advisor for myself and my mother. We were collected from our hotel by a lovely young man who introduced himself as Damien and his beloved horse Molly . He took us through Killarney national park at a lovely easy pace, showed us some amazing views and explained the history of the lakes and buildings . We had time to stop off and take photographs where he used this time to feed and check on his horse . The tour was everything I hoped it would be . I would highly recommend this company if looking to book a jaunting cart during your stay. The next time I book Killarney I will be definitely be using the same company once again.

    Mary was most knowledgeable and engaging. She provided an excellent way to experience the Dingle peninsula. It was so much more enjoyable not having to drive the route, but to have Mary narrate while we enjoy the spectacular scenery. Note that Mary clearly displays on her photo tile that she utilizes a 4 door Mercedes sedan, so it could be a tight fit depending.

    This was a beautiful tour that allowed you too see the Ring of Kerry in its entirety. Our driver handled driving on the twisty roads with excellent skill. The only stop I would have rather skipped was at the Bog Museum... I would have rather spent more time at the Waterfall later on in the tour. But I thought this was an excellent way to see as much of Killarney as possible if you only had 8 hours time to spend.

    This is by far the best and most experienced company to book when touring the Gap, the National Park, etc. by jaunting cart. The service, knowledge, jarveys (drivers) all combine to make an exceptional day in Killarney! This tour is always the best part of a trip to Killarney. Fifth generation family business says it all! Thanks to the whole team, including Patrick and Liam.

    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!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of wild Ireland. We would definitely recommend this company. We upgraded to B&B’s for our nightly accommodations and were very pleased with them. This can be a very active tour, if you do desire. Many opportunities for long and short hikes. Our guide Sean was fantastic. Shared many facts about Ireland and many times had the whole laughing. We would definitely travel with Irish Experience Tours again. Ireland and it’s people are beautiful!

    Great tour. Small group means you're not always rushing unlike the large group tours. Padraig our driver/ tour guide is brilliant. He's funny, very knowledgeable and loads of stories to tell. Thumbs up for him. Would really recommend this tour.

    Can’t imagine a better tour guide than Paddy. He knew all the places and lots of the history and folklore. It wasn’t clear to me at first that we had an all day tour so we met Paddy in Dingle so from there we had lots of time to explore and stop for pints, whisky, and ice cream. Alternatively, we learned that he could have picked us up in Kenmare. But then we wouldn’t have had as much time on tour. Highly recommend this tour and especially our driver Paddy.

    The Ring of Kerry tour was one of the highlights of our 5 week journey through England, Wales and Ireland. Our guide grew up in and still lives in the Killarney area so she has an abundance of information and history to share. She was very flexible as well, giving us extra time to see some of the sights.
