What a lovely time we had seeing Killarney National Park this morning via horse-drawn carriage. Jimmy, our driver, made the experience unforgettable with his wealth of knowledge and gregarious personality. And my wife adored the horse, Ringo Starr. If you want to go see Ross Castle, make sure you go via carriage. You won't regret it.

This horse-carting ride through the National Park at Killarney was very relaxing. The horse-carting ride is about 30-45 minutes. We were picked up at Ross Castle having had a boat trip on Loch Lein as part of our Shearings Holiday Tour. Our driver was funny and very informative. I would recommend horse-carting if you visit Killarney.

I don't normally do this, but I did for my wife and I loved it. Views of the park and Ross castle was awesome and I thought the 12 euro price was reasonable for the time we got. We had Gerard and Sally and it was great. Excellent experience!

Really enjoyed the ride and the history that Martin was able to share with us. We also loved Jack. It was nice to know this has been a family owned business for years. Would recommend taking this tour if you are in the area

This was a nice, relaxing, horse-drawn carriage ride through the national park. We were picked up at our hotel as part of our Emerald Isle Globus Tour. The vistas of the Lakes of Killarney and the ancient Ross Castle were lovely. The drivers were funny, talking back and forth to each other, and my teens got to sit up front... More

This was my second time doing a jaunting tour with this company. The horse & carriage picked us up from our hotel in the centre of Killarney & we did the Mockross House tour which took a couple of hours & cost €15. Michael was the driver, he was very informative & was happy to stop along the way so... More

My family of 5 really enjoyed this hour tour of Killarney National Park. Since we went on the off season, we were fortunate to have this 5th generation driver take us out in the morning with his horse "Maggie's" only ride for the day. He was charming and very informative.

The horse and carriage ride proved to be the best way to see the local geography around Killarney. They provided blankets on a chilly morning and had very good commentary that added on to the overall experience.
