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.

*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    We chose to do a private tour after looking at miserable-looking group tour photos online. Tim was our tour guide/driver. He was so pleasant and warm and kind. It was relaxing and comfortable and took about 4 hours total. They provided hotel pickup and drop-off which was so convenient. Tim was very open to whatever we wanted to do. He suggested certain things, and if we didn't seem interested, he skipped them. I loved the areas he took us to, especially the very cute town for lunch. One thing that was missing was more verbal history/info as we drove. It was a very quiet drive and I guess I was expecting more information and history of areas as we saw them. We are a quiet group though so maybe he was just reading the room :) Still a beautiful day and a very scenic tour of the Ring of Kerry. But yeah, if i could offer constructive help to the tour company it would just be for the guides to say more, give more background and history of the locations as you go.

    The tour guide was amazing and gave us plenty of info on all of the locations and the ring of kerry itself, which I found made the tour more interesting. This along with the breathtaking views provided us with an amazing unforgettable experience!

    Enjoyed both trips with Dingle Peninsula first on the docket. We had rain and wind in the forecast both days, but the weather held out both days with the exception of the last hour of the Ring of Kerry. Beautiful weather with periods of sun on the first day and more overcast with rain at the end on the second day. The drivers/guides both did an excellent job driving and explaining the sites with lively stories sprinkled in. We had Batt the first day and he was more talkative out of the two. Dennis was an excellent guide and answered many questions us passengers had. Both kept it lively and entertaining. If you have to pick one of the 2 tours I'd recommend the Dingle Peninsula. Better views, beach side stops, and towns/villages you pass thru and stop at. The sheep dog demonstration on the Ring of Kerry is a highlight for reason. Amazing! Do them both if you can, it's definitely worth it.

    Rory welcomed the 10 tourist folks on board and never stopped imparting historical knowledge of the lakes, mountains and people of the Killarney valley over 10k years. The landscape speaks for itself. The Gap trip is one of the iconic trips.

    I had such a great time on this ride. I showed horses competitively for the majority of my life, so I always brace myself for group rides being painfully boring for me, but they (brilliantly) split advanced riders off into a separate group, so I had an experience that was my speed (no pun intended). And the views were of course beautiful, as they are in all of Ireland :)

    One thing to note: plan how you’ll get there ahead of time. Killarney’s city center is very small and walkable but the stable is of course a couple miles outside town, so it was my first time attempting to find a ride and I had underestimated just how limited the transportation options are in Killarney (none of the taxi or ride-share apps that operate in Ireland had ANY available drivers and there were no taxis near my hotel—I was fortunate enough that the stable employs awesome people who were willing to move my horseback ride to a later time when I wasn’t able to make it for my originally scheduled time).

    First tip, don't try to drive it on your own. We hired a guide through Deros Coach Tours and had a fantastic time, enjoying spectacular views and learned so much. The Ring is 111 miles which without stopping would take 3.5 hours. It took us almost 6 hours and the time flew by. It's very narrow in some places so good to have someone with experience driving you. Plus you have the advantage of enjoying the ride. Highly recommend.

    I truly can’t say enough good things about our experience with Killarney Jaunting Cars. Our ride was on a particularly cold day, but we were greeted warmly by our driver Calvin and given plenty of wool blankets in the carriage. The ride itself was gorgeous, filled with fun conversation and plenty of great information about wildlife, vegetation, geology, history, and more. Spectacular views, an easy-going and knowledgeable guide, and a sweetheart horse named Calvin pulling us along - this was a smash hit and I would recommend it to absolutely everyone!

    We loved every second of our tour with Mary G. We are a family of 3 and Mary picked us up at Bantry in her lovely auto and we toured the beautiful Gouggane Barra to Killarney--wonderful sights and driven carefully and expertly. Amazing views including mountains, waterfalls, beaches and cliffs. She knew it all and shared it with enthusiam, knowledge and love for Ireland. We then toured her hometown and castle gardens in Killarney where we had a lovely lunch. Mary then took us back to the Bantry Port via the Healy Pass which allowed us different scenery than the route in the morning. She is a superior tour guide, light hearted and told us wonderful stories while sharing history. We recommend her highly for any tour she gives in Ireland. What a special person she is!

    Mary was brilliant! I am so grateful to Mary for giving me a tour of Killarney, the Cliffs of Moher, through the burrens and even off the beaten path a bit to Quin where my father was from. She took me first to Killarney then the next day on to Galway. Mary is extremely knowledgeable about her country and you will learn a lot. She is also warm, fun and funny. I highly recommend Mary, she is a delightful person and you can't go wrong when choosing her for your tour of Ireland. Thank you Mary and I hope to see you and Ireland very soon.

    Mr. William was an excellent representative of Kerry Taxi Tours. The vehicle was clean and comfortable. We had the best time and plan to come back with more relatives. I would highly recommend this company and this tour.
