    We did a private Ring of Kerry tour in a car with Sheila and we loved it! Sheila was a great driver and a lovely person, and the nature of the private tour was that we could stop anywhere we wanted and spend as much or little time at each spot as we wanted. The views were breathtaking and the car was extremely comfortable. Some places along the way were closed since it is off-season (such as a planned ice cream stop), but the off-season lack of crowds was a net positive for us! Glad we did the private tour and would definitely recommend it!

    What a unique experience! First time travelers to Ireland, this tour offered a small group experience to explore the Dingle Peninsula. From the beautiful town of Dingle to the nature that surrounds it, this tour provides insight on your sites while allowing freedom to explore. Plenty of time to eat at the restaurant of your choosing in Dingle. Frequent rest stops and breaks from the van are great for travelers prone to motion sickness. No bathroom on van but not noticeable with the generous break ups of the trip!

    Our Ring of Kerry Tour with Piotr was amazing! Leave the driving to the pro and get an Ireland education as well! We hit all of the top spots along the ring of Kerry and avoided all the big tour busses, it felt like we were alone on the edge of the world! Perfect for our family with two younger children, 7 and 10. They absolutely loved it and so did my wife and I. Highly recommend for families or anyone looking to avoid a bunch of people on a big tour bus and want a personalized experience without having to do the driving!

    Amazing tour and tour guide!! Perfect time for stops and great information on the way. The stop in the small village was amazing and really put things into perspective on the history. All of the stops were breathtaking!! The café we stopped at was very nice with a beautiful view. Highly recommended!!

    John was our tour guide and was great! He was very knowledgeable and fun to have. Be prepared for a lot of driving, but the small bus/van was very comfortable and had tables.

    This was a fantastic tour of Skellig Ring and several other stops along the Ring of Kerry. Our tour guide, Colm, was wonderful. So knowledgeable and friendly. We felt right at home. What an amazing way to spend a day! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to enjoy the sights the Ring of Kerry has to offer.

    Booking: We booked online a little more than 2 weeks in advance. Was easy to prepare for trip and find the bus. Unfortunately the check-in process at the bus was frustrating -- we arrived at the time specified but stood in a line outside the bus for about 25 minutes before the driver showed up. We didn't realize there were passengers who had come from Cork in the morning who were on a horse and carriage tour in Killarney National Park and we had to wait for them to return. They also had saved all their seats on the bus so there was some confusion trying to get seats for us and with our respective travel partners, which made me anxious. The driver was patient and took charge and was able to figure it all out to our satisfaction but we were nearly an hour late leaving Killarney and that was a disappointing start to the day. If this happens to you, be patient, sip your coffee, it's just a blip in a fantastic day!

    Itinerary: We enjoyed all of the stops and the context provided by John. Every vista on this trip is breathtaking. If I had to do again would have skipped entrance to bog village and went straight for the whiskey coffees.

    Lunch: Nice stop in Waterville with plenty of time to order from a hot buffet and sit and eat, plus a short stroll. Made-to-order options were also available.

    Bus: The bus is comfortable, the windows are tall so you can see well on both sides no matter which seat you are in. I am prone to motion sickness and had no trouble at all (without drugs). Felt safe leaving backpack on bus during hop-off stops, and eating snacks - noting driver insists no hot foods or smelly foods please. There are bathrooms at the Kerry bog village, Waterville, Snead and the waterfall (convenient throughout the day)

    Driver: John was a good driver and articulate tour guide. He's very funny and gets the crowd involved which I really enjoyed.

    Price: Price is totally fair for the memorable day you will have in comfort and ease. Irish coffees, entrance to the Kerry Bog Village, lunch, and ice cream are not included. Bring cash to tip your driver at the end.

    It was a beautiful day and the tour was amazing! John told us a lot of interesting facts on the tour and I'm so glad we decided to take the tour last minute because we had planned on driving it.

    The sheep dog demonstration was neat to see. And John made sure to stop for photo ops when he could.

    John made the tour very enjoyable and I wish we could have spent more time talking.

    My daughter, grandson and I spent the day with Ray on a private Dingle Peninsula tour. What an amazing day. Ray knew the area and the history which made the experience special. We saw all the sites that we anticipated and my daughter and grandson had time to enjoy the aquarium in Dingle. Ray's flexibility was very welcome. Besides the special time at the aquarium the stop to feed lambs was special. The vehicle was comfortable and clean and the Slea Head drive was absolutely beautiful. I can't recommend this company enough. Thanks for a great day.

    Paudie was incredibly knowledgeable about the area annd its history . It was truly an unforgettable experience.
    The scenery along the Ring of Kerry was stunning. Paudie took us to some hidden gems that we would have not found on our own or experienced on a bus tour. He also found the best spots for pictures , food and shopping . I would highly recommend booking a tour with Paudie.

    Joe was a wonderful tour guide!! I spent two days with him; we traveled around the Ring of Kerry and then drove up to the Dingle Peninsula. We saw all the highlights and hidden gems in two days. He looked ahead at the weather and planned events for each day to maximize my experience based on expected visibility/ rain. He suggested more ideas based on my interests and didn’t take it personally if I chose not to do one of his suggestions, which is exactly what I want! He gave lots of ideas and let me customize my trip.

    Joe is incredibly kind, easy to get along with, and very perceptive. I traveled alone as a young(ish) woman and was so glad that I chose Joe to show me around!

    Kris took us on a fantastic tour of the Ring of Kerry. He went off the beaten path to 1000 year old historical sites. The cliffs and Valencia Island views and story about the Skelligs Islands were entertaining as was lunch in a pub in town. Some of the best views were later in the tour as he expertly drove back along the coast and through Killarney National Park. We look forward to taking the Ring of Beara Peninsula tour one day with Kris.

    Munsterbus Private tour was the best part of our trip. Our Driver tailored our drive to what we really wanted to see by asking questions at the beginning of the tour. We loved it and honestly wished we had planned multiple days with them.
