“Great walk in the park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our guided walk with Richard. We were fortunate that we had glorious weather and as a result we had a fairly big crowd (12 or so) along for the walk. Richard was born and raised in the area and is very knowledgeable of the area. The "2-hour" walk turned into an enjoyable 3 hours.

Perhaps due to the larger crowd, the discussion was a little limited but we certainly saw some parts of the park that most tourists would not see (including a few shallow stream crossings).

The highlight for the kids (12 & 9) was Richard's dog Roa who joined us and made it that much more personable.

Highly recommended.

“Beautiful Ireland With a Great Guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2011

My husband, adult daughter and I had a delightful experience with Richard Clancy as our tour guide in Killarney. He adjusts the tour according to your interests, and he drove us around to show us some sights and stop for some great walks, including walking towards the Gap of Dunloe. It was fun to have his two Irish Setters with us, but you can't mind wet dogs in the car if you ride with Richard. We were with him for four hours and finished up at Kate Kearney's Cottage for Irish coffee. Dress for rain, and know that "five minutes more" may be more than five minutes. It was a great way to appreciate the beauty of Ireland and learn from an expert.

“Best way to spend a day in Killarney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2011

After spending the previous day on a bus tearing around the Ring of Kerry, we knew we needed a change of pace. A walk through the park with Ricahrd was the perfect anecdote. If you have to choose between a bus tour and a walk with Richard, I recommend Richard.

“Best tour ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2011

took the kilarney national park tour with Richard. It was the best choice of our trip. We saw local floura and fauna as well as the many beautiful views of the park. It was very enjoyable when Richard"s Irish Setter Roa came bounding up to greet us. I would call it a must do item when in Kilarney.
