What people are saying about Killarney
We had a great driver, Paul. We departed Limerick around 7:55 & arrived in Killarney at the Outlet Center around 9:30. We walked around the town, and had coffee & used the toilets at the Outlet Center while waiting for 2 buses from Dublin & Cork to arrive (& also people from Killarney). The tour officially started at 11:00. People doing the Ring of Kerry tour departed in two buses & people doing the Dingle tour were on Paul's bus. We made several brief stops at scenic points for photos. We made 20-minute stops at Inch Beach & at the BeeHive Huts (which cost extra to see up close, but you could take photos from the road). We stopped for lunch in Dingle from 2:30-4 & then returned to Killarney to meet the other buses around 5:30 & get people back on the bus they arrived on. We got back to Limerick around 7:00 that evening. The only problem we had was after we left Inch Beach (1st stop) around 12:15, it was more than 2 hours before we had a chance to use the toilets again (in Dingle).
My husband and I booked this fabulous tour of Killarney National Park the day before we went. An easy bus ride through flat parts of the park, followed by a fantastic jaunting car ride up and over the spectacular Gap of Dunloe, a pause for an Irish coffee and snack midway at Brandon’s Cottage, then a small, open boat ride across three lakes and two rivers, finally ending at our starting point at Ross Castle, a 15th Century tower house castle. An incredible way to see so much of the park. Definitely a highlight of our Ireland trip!
DJ is a special person. Not only did he ensure everyone's safety and pleasure throughout the day, he was very generous with his comments, stories and songs. He has a way of engaging people to participate and share their joy of the moment. Of course, it helped that the scenery along the Ring of Kerry was spectacular and the weather was exceptionnally good. To my wife, daugther and myself, this turned out to be a magical day for us.
I give this a good review. Thank goodness it was not raining as it would have been miserable. The wind was blowing making it a little cold, but the blanket provided did help. Our driver was quite nice and very informative. My Son and he had a few things in common so they chatted during the tour. It was especially nice as we were the only 2 on the tour.
This was a great day trip. You can really tell that the Irish love to tell a good story. Our tour guide Anthony was great, his stories were fun and informative. He also gave great advice on where to go in both Kilkenny and Dublin. Unlike most other tours, we had enough time to explore at our own leisure at all our stops.
