This was a fun day - despite the drizzle our driver was very knowledgable about the ring of Kerry, he was lots of fun with a great sense of humour and we had lots of opportunities to take photos. There are 2 stops on the tour that cost an addition 5 euros each - the Bog Village and the Shepherd/sheep... More

I recently enjoyed my third Ring of Kerry trip with O'Connor AutoTours; it was a wonderful day! As before, the stops were great - beautiful views, quaint shops with charming people and delicious food, but my favorite was the sheep herding demonstration. I loved the show; well worth the 5 euro. Driver guide John O'Neill offered great info on the... More

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
