Friendly and informative tour with Patrick and Molly
Oct 2021
On our last full day in Killarney, we accepted Patrick's offer to take a ride with his "boss" Molly, and we are so glad we did. Patrick was gracious enough to wait for us to get our things and take the last ride of the day, after all the other horses had packed it in. Patrick was friendly, informative and very funny.
He shared with us the history of the park, identified plants, trees, and wildlife, and even shared some personal stories of his own life and family here in Killarney. He owns two other horses, and we highly recommend taking a ride with Patrick if you are staying in Killarney.

Fantastic Jaunting Car
Sep 2021
I never expected to like this experience. I don't especially like horses and I never do hay rides or Hanson Cabs but I fell in love with this Jaunting Car Tour of the Killarney National Forest. The driver was funny and informative and his horse stole the show, pretty much directing the pace. Our driver owned this horse which isn't always the case and you could tell that this was a loving partnership. The Killarney National Forest is a treasure and we got to stop and see Ross Castle, too. What a memorable tour.

Brilliant, highly recommend regardless of weather.
We had a brilliant time spent with Cal and Gonzo the horse learning everything the was to know about the area. Cal was a brilliant guide, friendly, funny with a wealth of knowledge to share.
The weather had just turned to rain from the fabulous few sunny weeks prior so we weren’t sure if we’d still be able to do it but the carriage is covered over top with a hard roof. There is plastic retractable sheeting on either side so you stay dry and still have an uninterrupted view out the other side. There was also warm blankets in case it was chilly.
10/10 could not recommend enough, the perfect activity regardless of the Irish weather!

We had a great trip with spectacular views all around the park and the lake. The stop at Ross Castle for a few minutes was excellent with great photo opportunities. Our guide John was a fountain of knowledge and his horse Casey was amazing.

Well worth your time.
Sep 2020
This was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. The ride was and scenery was may even more enjoyable because of the humor of the driver. We went in September of 2019 and I found their card while cleaning out my suitcase. It was so enjoyable I had to add a review.

Lovely experience
Michael and his horse Julie were great. Michael was very knowledgeable and had great aul jokes. Definitely a bit of a comedian in him. The pace was lovely for the Killarney park trail to explore by the jaunting car and covered & saw so much. This is something I would recommend.

Thank you for posting a great review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your tour with Michael and Judy. We agree it is like comedy central here sometimes. The jaunting car tour is a great way to get out and explore the Park in a relaxed and informative manner. We hope we can welcome you back to Killarney again sometime for some more banter and exploring.

A must if in Killarney
Killarney Jaunty car tours is a must when visiting the area. Our daughter absolutely loved it and great memories were created. The driver Mike was great and very informative and the horse Casey was very placid and loved to pose for pictures.

The tour operator was excellent and very kindly rebooked my tour last minute when I realised I had booked the wrong date.

A warning as there are other tour operators who are not as good and their poor feedback can sometimes be wrongly attributed to Killarney Jaunty tours. Please ONLY book through Killarney Jaunty tours as they are unrivalled in price but more importantly offer a much better experience.
