A great way to see the Ring of Kerry especially if you are pressed for time like myself. John O'Neill was a fun, humorous and entertaining guide! If travelling solo you get to be co-captain at the front. What a view! Thanks John :)

Unfortunately, we did not know that this company does not pick up passengers outside of Killarney. Be advised. That being said, the tour of the Ring of Kerry they give is great! They stop at all of the usual spots, but the demonstration of sheep dog handling by Brendan was fabulous despite the pouring down rain. We were sheltered; Brendan,... More

We took the O'Connor tour of the beautiful Ring of Kerry. The Ring of Kerry is a wonderful drive and something you shouldn't miss. The tours are a must if you are traveling by public transport and are without your own car. The bus picked us up at our wonderful Malton Hotel. Be careful: The roads are not smooth; if... More

My grandson and I greatly enjoyed our Ring of Kerry Tour with O'Connor Autotours. We both thought that our driver/guide, John, was hilarious, his jokes were funny and comic timing impeccable, he could have great success as a standup comic. He is also knowledgable, friendly and concerned. After each stop he walked the length of the bus chatting with everyone.... More

The Ring of Kerry tour worth every penny. Fantastic views, very funny, knowledgeable driver John O'Neill made our trip. Definitely a must when you in Killarney. Thanks a lot John for a great time. Next time I'm around I will for sure go on tour again.

Before you book with this company, please read through what happened to us .. We have recently returned from a much looked forward to, trip to Southern Ireland, and a trip around the 'Ring of Kerry' was to be one of our 'trip highlights'. In view of this, and to avoid disappointment, in case the tour we wanted to be... More

I booked three day tours from Dublin while visiting. This was my first and the longest, but it also was my least favorite in the end. The tour involves a long train trip from Dublin. The company gave an excellent description online of how it would work. I booked the train online ahead of time. The tour was as described.... More

I recently completed a 9 day tour of ireland with O'Conner Autotours. Our party of five hired a small bus and driver from O'Conner Autotours and from start to finish this was a great decision. We started in Dublin and everyday toured ireland and landed each night at a different b/b. Our driver allowed everyone in our party to enjoy... More
