We (myself and my sister in law) were extremely satisfied by the services provided by the excellent Killarney Tour and Taxi Service. From the start they answered all our emails promptly and helped us work out 4 days of GREAT touring in the SW of Ireland. On the first short day Jack Hayden of Killarney Taxi service picked us up from the train station, took us to our B&B where we dropped off luggage and then we did a short 2 hour tour including observing the Gap of Dunloe just as the late afternoon sky was changing colors and the sun was going down - it was fantastic.
The next day with Jack's knowledge, his patience and low key style which was deeply appreciated we toured a full day – taking in part of the Ring of Kerry and then dropping down to Beara Peninsula via Kenmare, then going over the Healy Pass, where most of the big bus tours do not go and then onto Glengarriff - - a Nature Reserve -- on our wish listed and then took a ferry over to the island of Garinish/Ilnacullin in Glengarriff harbor off of Bantry Bay.
Then the third day we continued with Jack, who is such a great guy, and did a full day tour of Dingle – and because this was in a taxi and not one of those big busses and because Jack was so patient and an excellent driver we were able to stop where we wanted to, go to smaller places to eat or take a break in a pub (like the South Pole Inn) and go over the Connors (aka Conors, Conair) Pass, which is missed in many tours, and take pictures and just check things out. At the end of this tour my sister in law was getting a cold so Jack’s relaxing, patient style was just great so she could enjoy things even while feeling under the weather.
The fourth day Jack (who had another commitment from before) arranged for Tom Hogan (still of the Killarney Tour and taxi Service) and another excellent tour guide to take us from Tralee touring up to Galway (where we then stayed). By taking a tour up to Galway we avoided having to deal with the awkward going back and up direction of the train service from Tralee to Galway so we did not lose a day of touring.
Tom was quite helpful and nice, too and boy could he get through the narrowest passageways without a scratch! It was quite stormy and wet that day and Tom was a trooper. Also on this day my sister in law was pretty sick -- still she got to see the Cliffs of Moher, Burren and the prehistoric structure Poulnabrone Dolmen in as much comfort as possible. In addition to these regular sites we stopped at the small town of Lisdoovarna, where the well-known yearly Matchmaking Festival takes place and there are fun murals to photograph and also a great pub where we had absolutely one of the best meals of our whole trip to Ireland.
