It was alot of fun, very informative and a great driver.

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.

To be driven around by a 6th generation, absolute gent from Aghadoe, who was as knowledgeable on local history as he was engaging and humorous was worth every cent and more! Would highly recommend to any tourist, Irish person in Killarney for a night out, and anyone with kids! Put it on the bucket list, you wont regret it!

Very enjoyable way to see Killarney

We enjoyed our jaunting car ride very much. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and everyone fell in love with Casper, the horse. It was cold & rainy the day we went out but the wagon is well equipped to accommodate all weather with a cover to keep the rain off and blankets to keep warm. We would take the tour again. It’s a nice, memorable way to tour the National Park.
