I've done with tis company the ring of Kerry tour and it was a terrible tour, a tourist attraction. The bus has done some stupids, unecessaries and commercials stops: -the first one to see the sheeps (extra fee-5euros)!!!!! - for lunch we stopped in a restaurant, and there was anything around. The others companies stop for lunch in a village,... More

My friends and I took a ring of Kerry day tour with this company. The good: service was good, views are beautiful, bus was fine, and we stayed on schedule. The bad: several uneccessary stops. One at a random location for a sheep dogging show (extra fee) that the driver kept promoting during the ride. Another was a at a... More

Let's just say, do not use O'Connor's tours if you want to make it home. I got stranded at the lake after the boat left without us. First they overbooked the tour, so instead of going with the group across the lake and then hiking through the gap, we waited around for 20 min and were then told we would... More

This was a terrible tour. The tour guide barely spoke and acted as if he'd rather be doing anything but giving the tour. When he pointed things out that's all he'd do. He gave no history about what he was pointing out. And the things he'd point out there was a sign saying what was there already. Our stops were... More

A friend and I joined two tours operated by O’Connor Autotours during our stay in Killarney with the intent of visiting both Dingle and Kerry peninsulas. We selected this company based on reviews on Tripadvisor and booked the two tours special offer for the following day because of the attractive price. I must say that we were both quite dissatisfied... More

Our day started great with the sun in Killarney and we first decided to go on a tour with another company Deros. When we were at the first stop we found out that due to the delay of the bus (I would say due to their bad organization of the trip that day) we will no be able to see... More

I travelled to Ireland on my own for the weekend of the 12-13th July. I attended the Ring of Kerry Day Tour and had an absolute ball. The tour guide, John O'Neill, was not only extremely knowledgable, he was hilariously funny and made my day after giving me a big kiss on the cheek! We saw plenty of fabulous sites... More

It was a very well organized trip with loads of interesting (not boring) information. We enjoyed it very much. Both the guide and driver (Mike and Dennis) were wonderful. I recommend it to everyone who wants to see the area and learn something about it.

This was a fun day touring the beautiful Ring of Kerry with plenty of stops for photos. Our driver picked us up right outside our hotel in town, and during the tour provided lots of commentary on what we were seeing. He was very knowledgeable on everything from history to culture to current events. One word of caution: the stop... More
