We are a group of 15 individual Jaunting Car Tour Operators which have amalgamated to form this partnership. Most of us are Second and Third generation Jaunting car operators. To date we have been operating as individual operators but feel that we need to pool together our knowledge and experience to stay on top of the ever changing market. Our experience spans over 350 years combined. We have up to 25 carriages which allow us to cater for large groups as well as smaller groups. We are proud to have the oldest Jarvey (Jaunting car operator) in Killarney with us, who boasts an impressive 50 years of experience. We are proud to be in operation 7 days a week, 364 days a year, making Killarney Horse & Carriage Tours Killarney's only all year round tour operators!

We met Mike O'Grady and his lovely horse Jesse late in the afternoon for a ride around the National Park. Four other gentlemen from Chicago joined us and Mike dropped them off at the local horse race. We had a good time talking about who to bet on at the races. Mike gave us so much information about the park,... More

Brilliant trip out to Ross Castle with Katie the horse and her owner (we forgot to ask him for his name) - it was fun and interesting. We were given information about the national park in a funny and interesting way and seeing everything like this was really good - peaceful and different. We thought it was good value. We... More

We took a ride on the horse and carriage to the Ross Castle and it was one of our fondest memories. I would recommend this for one or for a whole family. It is a must in Killarney.

This is not something that I would usually consider on my travels as a way to do a tour and see a part of the town I'm in. I am so glad I did this. It was such a great way to go through the park and view castles and lakes from the back of the carriage. It could have... More

If you are in Killarney to take in the full experience of a small town with medieval look and your family isnt too much into the biking - hiking scene, then this would the a good option to take up. It is a fun filled experience, the drivers are very friendly and know the best spots for photos. They do... More

It's as touristy as it gets but worth it as its the only way to approach the. Muckross House and gardens while getting a feeling of what it must have been like when Queen Victoria visited.If you do it as part of a package tour as I did (Exploring Vacations) make sure you've ascertained that there is time to go...

A group of us hired two of the Jaunting Cars to take us for an hour's drive round part of the Killarney National Park on the 10th October. It was a lovely sunny morning but cool. Our horse was Sally, and our driver was John, and we all had a very relaxing, entertaining, informative and enjoyable hour or so, with... More

Eight of us took the carriage tour (one way) from the center of Killarney to the Muckross house. The driver was very nice but difficult to hear what he was saying. The ride while lovely was not that long. We ended up paying 12 Euros a person (96 euros total or $126.00 U.S.) which seemed high considering the length of... More

Look for the guy with the white cowboy hat and horse Patrick. He gave a great commentary and he was so generous with his stops. He made an extra stop for us and you have to do this if with your wife girlfriend or even just a friend the views are amazing
