We took a day tour to Dingle after taking the 7 AM train from Dublin. A really nice representative who carried our bags met us and took us to the bus where we met our guide, I believe his name was Maurice and he was excellent. He knew a lot about the area and took us to some beautiful sites,... More

We did our trip on 19 August. Driver has collected us next to the hotel and we had a wonderful day. Driver really knows his job. Listen to his suggestions and you will see best par of Ring of Kerry! Will definitely recommend this trip to my friends

We telephoned O'Conners to enquire about a tour of the Ring of Kerry and before we knew it we were collected from our hotel and delivered to our tour coach. Our coach driver/courier was excellent and his Kerry wit was appreciated by all on board. His knowledge on the Ring was splendid making this a well worth outing.On the completion... More

We took the day tour of the Ring of Kerry with this company, and one of the best driver/tour guides we have experienced. Yes, it was John O'Neil! He has been doing this for years....drives the route daily. He made the day for us with his wealth of knowledge of the area and his great sense of humor. That he... More

Thank you for your kind review of our tour company. As with many other reviews on our TripAdvisor page, John O'Neill continues to awe any tourist lucky enough to be in his care (or victims in his clutches, as he puts it sometimes!) Needless to say, the Ring of Kerry route is test of skill for any driver which is... More

While the scenery was absolutely beautiful, the tour guide (man with the hats) was terrible. When I go on tours, I hope to learn a little about the history or maybe some interesting facts about the sights or customs, but the tour guide did none of the above. Instead, he merely pointed out things that I could have read on... More

It is, indeed, truly disappointing to receive a groundless review such as yours when quite obviously you have taken poetic licence to express comments that are not only false and misleading, but also very much untrue. It is quite obvious you were bored, however taking your ire out on John O'Neill's handling of this day tour is not consistent with... More

We couldn't have asked for a better day than the one we spent on the Ring of Kerry tour with John O'Neill. Not only is John a great driver who saved this American from a harrowing day driving on the left hand side of some of the narrowest and winding roads of Ireland, but he is extremely knowledgeable and informative...

Thank you for your review of our day tours. At this point I may sound like a broken record, but countless reviews of John, his commentary and his driving rarely vary from excellency and your review is another addition to the pedestal of pride upon which we hold him.

Fantastic scenery. Great tour in comfortable bus. Driver was careful on narrow roads. Delivered everything they advertised. Had pickup and drop off service from B&B at no charge. O’Connor’s sells the 4 front seats on the bus for 10 euros each - well worth the price as most of the tour is sightseeing from the bus. Be sure and see... More

Thank you very much for your review of our company. Our driver John O'Neill is a proud example of a skilled and well-trained bus driver. From my numerous trips on the Ring of Kerry I know that's it's hard enough to drive the route by car, let alone a 54-seater coach! Currently debates are ongoing within management to decide what...

We were on the ring of Kerry day tour and the scenery was fantastic. One of the most beautiful places I've been to. The driver/guide (John) was funny but it was sometimes hard to understand him through the bus' microphone. It took six and half hours but it didn't feel like we sat in a bus all day. And if... More

We just completed an outstanding excursion around the Dingle Peninsula with O'Connor's Wild Kerry Tours. We were guided by Maurice Nagle, who was very accomodating, allowing for several photo opportunities at dramatic viewing points at Inch Beach, 3,000 year old monastic bee hive huts, and around Slea Head. The highlight was a 1 and 1/2 hours stop at charming Dingle... More
