First, a car picked me up at my B&B and brought me to the bus for the tour. I thought I'd have to walk. Then John O'Neill, the driver and guide was so wonderful and full of delight and information throughout the entire drive around the Ring of Kerry. He even sang Irish songs to us. He was very friendly... More

We Have been to Killarney a few times and have taken the Ring of Kerry Tour twice. Our first experience was excellent. It was several years ago and unfortunately, I cannot remember the name of the company. On our last trip we used O'Connor Tours. What a disappointment. The tour was rushed, the narrative nonexistent and the only stops we... More

Michael was our guide and a very knowledgeable one at that. We had every element of weather in the one day but knew Michael knew the roads well. Met some amazing people and took some wonderful photos. Thanks Michael, you're a gem. Well worth the £20!!

Thanks for taking the time to review – glad you enjoyed your Ring of Kerry daytour and met some amazing people on the journey.

Took the Wild Kerry tour earlier this month and had a great time! Definitely a good choice if you are not traveling the country by car and only have a few days (in my case, just one) to spend in the area. They were gracious enough to pick me up from the bus station when I arrived just before the... More

John was a fantastic tour guide and we really enjoyed our Ring of Kerry tour! I would reccommend doing this day trip and not driving yourself simply for the fact that it isn't the easiest drive and you will get to enjoy the scenery with someone local telling you about everything you are passing by. John was very funny and... More

I really liked the tour I was on. The Ring of Kerry is gorgeous and I couldn't really complain about the tour. The driver was very well acquainted with the area but that sometimes made him talk fast or shuffle us through places quickly. Nice fellow though. Overall, a good trip!

The Ring of Kerry is indeed a very scenic area of the county with mountains, oak woodlands and spectacular coastal scenery. All our drivers are local and as such have an intimate knowledge and love of the region which they are only too happy to share with visitors to the area. Thanks again for your review. More

I took advantage of the Wild Atlantic Way special where I saved a bit of money if I booked the Dingle Peninsula and Ring of Kerry day tours back to back. The Dingle peninsula tour runs in a small coach. Our guide, Morris, was friendly and knowledgeable. The town of Dingle itself is charming and the scenery around the rest... More

I took the tour with my 80 year old Dad who had never seen the Ring of Kerry although he is Irish.

Your Dad is not alone as many Irish people from other regions have not visited the Ring of Kerry, yet alone taken a bus tour but it’s a great way to see & learn about the region for both Irish & overseas visitors alike. Hope your Dad did enjoy the day out and will have fond memories of it for... More
