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 great day with Dennis. It was great to be driven and not have to concentrate on the road. Dennis went above and beyond to make sure we were able to see as much as possible. There were road closures around the Ring of Kerry due to a biking event but Dennis maneuvered to find alternate routes and we had a great day. We were very happy with Dennis and totally recommend him.

    The hike through the Gap of Dunloe was outstanding. My wife took the jaunting cart, which was also a great experience. The day was a little warm, so be prepared as there are no facilities/water on the hike. The boat ride back was also great, although we did need to get out and hike about ten minutes so the boat could get through the narrow/shallow water under a bridge. The drought has had a major effect on the lake's water level this fall, but should not be a problem at other times of the year. Deros Coach Tours in Killarney were great and very professional--even suggested switching days due to potential/forecasted rain so the hike would be dry. The area clearly needs the rain, but we were happy to make that switch and appreciated Deros' guidance.

    Everyone and everything you want to know about the Ring of Kerry. He's there most days so knows the people at all the locations. When we stopped to see the sheep dog demonstration, Joe positioned us to stand in the best spot! There were a 100 people there from tour buses but we were front and center when the demonstration began. Joe got us a table at the tiny and crowded restaurant in Port Magee and then the owner bought me a beer while my wife talked to a local fisherman because they knew Joe. Plus he was a good driver and his car was very nice. This trip was a much appreciated day off from driving on these narrow and winding roads.

    We had a fantastic time on this day tour. The sights were incredible and the timing was nearly perfect. A favorite experience for us was watching the sheep dogs. John was a fantastic driver.

    We took Mary's Ring of Kerry tour. It was excellent! She is well versed on the history of the area. She took us to places tour buses don't stop. Highly recommended!

    Beautiful tour! Was so glad we ended up booking this instead of driving ourselves since these roads definitely require a little more experience driving on these roads. My father ended up leaving his bag at one of the stops (with his passport in it) and our driver, Micheal, was such a huge help in getting it back to us. Cannot thank him enough!
    Only suggestion I have if you are considering this your is to have some dramamine on hand as some of the second half of the trip was a little tough if you get motion sick easily.
    Overall had a 10/10 experience, would definitely recommend!

    Paudie is an amazing guide! He has a wealth of information of the area, it’s geography & history. He shared many out of the way spots with us….stunning views. And even taught us some Irish phrases. Highly recommend spending a day on this tour!

    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.

    Mary was awesome. We laughed and talked all day. She quickly surmised what we'd be interested in and planned accordingly. There were plenty of opportunities for bathroom breaks or to pick up a beverage or snack. If you're prone to motion sickness you might want to take precautions because the roads are curvy on steroids.

    We saw so much of the Dingle Peninsula: Inch Beach, the coastline, the Skellig Islands (Star Wars tie-in), Sleeping Man Island, Blasket Island, Slea Head Drive (which is not for the faint of heart), many beehive dwellings, ring dwellings, churches, Observatory, more cliffs, more beaches, a golf course, Dingle town for lunch (Fish Box has the most amazing seafood chowder), Connor's Pass and then some teeny tiny road that only farmers and sheep go on apparently (wind whistling through the Irish heather and grass is magical). She never rushed us and moved on if we were only mildly interested in something.

    Mary managed to arrange a rainbow, a sheep crossing and thrilling narrow driving conundrums to make it extra special.

    It's a lot more than a bus tour, but was worth it because she personalized it just for us...one of those once-in-a-lifetime days.

    Actually we enjoyed the interesting Best of Cork and Kerry Highlights as our guide accommodated our preferences! We had a terrific day exploring dramatic countryside and quiet villages while learning Irish history and gaining new insights into some of our own backgrounds in the States. We savored lunch of quiche and cottage pie with pints at a sidewalk café, were serenaded by street musicians while investigating local art and colorful woven goods shops for treasures to take home. It was a luxury to take our time where we wanted. The folks at MUNSTERBUS Tours know what they are doing and make lovely hosts for the homeland they love.

    Peter was an excellent guide. We hired him for 2 days. Dingle peninsula and ring of kerry. He is knowledgable, friendly, helpful, reliable and willing to go the extra distance. We would highly recommend him!

    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.
