Sean was our tour guide. I cant say enough good things about him. He is very knowledgeable. One thing you should know about Sean. If Sean says 230pm, he means 230pm. LOL, he keeps you on schedule to maximize your viewing experience. He makes many stops to take photos and gives you history on the area. We stopped for lunch... More

We couldn't recommend this tour operator more if we tried...loved Sean!!! We were so happy it was a small bus, far less hassle and comfort. Informative, gracious, friendly, and very helpful...we are sad to go back to Maryland!

The first stop is the Kerry Bog museum. It’s optional and would advise against seeing it as it’s not well maintained. After that disappointment we didn’t fork out the admission fee for the sheepdog show. Along the way the views are lovely (despite the wind and rain) but Sean the driver needs to slow down when talking. He’s obviously done... More

What amazing service! We were picked up at the train station and taken to our hotel to drop off our luggage. We were then driven to the starting point of the hike. At the end you get a wonderful boat ride back to Ross Castle and then transport to your hotel. Everyone was so fun and nice. Highly recommend. You... More

Did both the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Tours. Each day the fog had set in making it impossible to see anything. The drivers' could only see a few feet in front of them. Obviously, that's Ireland and the tour company can't control that but it's there stops along the way that makes this company average at best. Our... More

We did the Ring of Kerry tour and had a great day - highlights for us were the Shepherd show at one of our stops (outstanding- well worth the 5 euro each) and of course the beautiful countryside. Our driver was great after a little trouble with the microphone but was very informative and we were able to see a... More

We took both the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula tours and they were highlights of our trip. The drivers, Sean and Donny, were local historians with the gift of tale telling and both were very witty! They navigate the twisting narrow roads so that you can enjoy the scenery. Unfortunately, the day we took the Ring of Kerry... More

The Wild Kerry day tours was set up by out B&B hostess. The bus was not very big which was good for getting on and off at each stop. Bus suspension was rough! John the driver had us laughing on several occasions. The only portion of the tour that I will not miss was the continuous pointing out of the... More

We planned on driving ourselves but canned the rental car in a car park and took this tour. We were so glad to sit back and let someone else do the work so we could enjoy the day. The stops were great including the Bog House Tour, sheep dog demonstration, and great lunch stop. The driver John oNeill was entertaining... More

I had found a great deal online for the two consecutive days tour (Ring of Kerry on one day and Dingle on another) with "O'Connor Auto Tour" company; I had booked it back in March and we traveled at the end of June. We were lucky with the weather on that day - bright sunshine all the way. We found... More
