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

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

We had a wonderful time on this fantastic coach tour travelling the Kerry Ring! The driver was really funny and the scenery was incredible. Definitely not one to miss! We stopped plenty of times to take photographs, as well as at some attractions and shops such as a fantastic sheep dog demonstration (which costs an extra €5). We stopped for... More

We had a wonderful time seeing all the beautiful sites along the ring of Kerry. We stopped frequently for photo options from above the lakes and the vistas were wonderful. A highlight was to see the shepherd demonstrate how his dogs are trained to work with the sheep. This is a bus tour and the driver gave a lot of... More

Tour was great. Tour and bus operator were knowledgeable and entertaining.The reason for the average rating is first, because we left about an hour late waiting for more customers. And second, once we stepped on the bus (we were the second people getting on) the operator told us front row is reserved and there is an extra charge to sit... More

Without reading any reviews we were very blessed to have our guide Mr. John! He gave us the real feel of the charm and sense of humor of old Ireland with his history, fables and great appropriate jokes. He was informative, he made all the history so exciting along with the beauty of the Ring of Kerry just was the... More

We went on two tours - the Ring of Kerry tour and the Dingle Peninsula tour. Neither of us understood the rave reviews of the tours on the website, as neither tour guide gave much insight to Kerry, Killarney or Dingle, but mostly pointed out random information such as "this is a gas station", "here's a school". If you're hoping... More

John, the guide was hilarious. He had the whole bus doubled over in laughing fits. Kilarney has some of the best... More
