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

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

Thank you for your kind hearted review of our Dingle Peninsula tour. As with many of our staff, Maurice is a revered and respected member of our company who receives many positive reports like yours. There are no other words I can put to his performance other than astounding and pleasant. The Dingle Peninsula tour is often shadowed under its... More

We did the Dingle Peninsula first on a rainy foggy day but the guide was fairly good with bits of information where necessary and nice photo stops. We enjoyed the stop at Dingle town to do a bit of exploring on our own. Ring of Kerry on a lovely day with John O Neil who was quite funny and almost... More

Thank you for your review of Wild Kerry Day Tours. We strive to make our clients' stay in Ireland a memorable one and are honoured to have been a part of your stay here.

The Ring of Kerry tour covered a lot of territory that was quite beautiful. The seats were comfortable and John was funny. It was very easy to book online. It you do both Kerry and dingle, you save 10e. I was disappointed that we did not go through Kenmare as I wanted to shop for the hand made lace that... More

Thank you very much for your kind review. We aim to pack as many destinations and sights into our tour as we can possibly incorporate. Due to different travel times and deadline we are constrained with a seven-hour tour in order to accommodate those with evening reservations, train and bus schedules as well as many other factors.

Such an awesome day tour! Plenty of stops for pictures and to eat. Loved the shepherd who put on a show with his dogs hearing the sheep! The driver too was so funny and was so informative! His name is John O'Neill! His driving skills are amazing too! If you want to do the ring of Kerry, DO THIS TOUR!!... More

I did the Ring of Kerry tour yesterday with tour guide Pat. The drive was beautiful but there isn't much else good to say about the tour after that. Our guide lacked interest or enthusiasm and sounded like a talking map ("over there is a golf course, there's the road to the golf course"). The stops were tourist traps and... More

Although it rained and the wind was awful, the tour was still amazing. Our tour guide, Eric, was very nice and provided interesting information about the local area. Even though the weather did not cooperate, the scenery was still beautiful. Also, it was nice to be picked up at our hotel in the morning, that was very convenient as we... More

I went on the Dingle Peninsula with Wild Kerry Day Tour and it was really great, I'm glad I did it. The views are breathtaking. We were only a few people, like 8 people and that probably helped to the nice experience. I did the Ring of Kerry the next day and I found it less impressive than the Dingle... More
