“Fun fun fun!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

My husband and I took the tour of the Ring of Kerry with John O'Neill. It was informative and very entertaining. We got a voucher with the travel package we purchased, and was sick of driving after a few days, so we thought we'd use the voucher and let someone else do the driving for a day. It turned out way better than we expected! I would recommend this to anyone! It's well worth the price and would definitely do it again!

Thank you for your “fun fun fun” five star review of our popular Ring of Kerry tour. Your review of our service and that of your driver guide are much appreciated. We are glad you and your husband had opportunity to take the day off from driving and just to sit back, relax & enjoy the views as well as being entertained throughout the day by John O'Neill’s commentary and whit. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Ireland.

“Great experience!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

It was a rainy January day and was going to re-schedule our tour. Glad we did not because we had the time of our lives! John O'Neill made it fun and he was entertaining throughout the entire tour. He was able to bring us to all the stops and made for some amazing photos. I highly recommend Wild Kerry Day Tour. Can't wait to do it again this year!

Thanks for reviewing or Ring of Kerry Daytour – evening on a rainy cold January day this tour can be enjoyed due in no small part to the commentary provided by the driver guide as you suggest. John makes the tour fun with his high energy commentary - just the thing on a damp day. Thanks for uploading photo – travellers as well as ourselves love to see the pictures. Do come back and see us again this year. Thanks again for the review.

“Best part of Ireland”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Me and my friends absolutely loved the ring of kerry tour. Our tour guide was hilarious and entertaining. There wasn't a dull moment. We were the youngest batch on the bus and he made sure we had fun. We were able to see all of the beautiful landscapes of Kerry despite the cold weather in November. Be sure to take the tour rather than traveling by yourself because the roadways are rough and you won't get the best experience. Only the guides know where the best sights are.The sights was absolutely breathtaking. I would definitely recommend this tour to get the full experience of Ireland. Every age group can enjoy this. Our tour guide picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off at the end which was very convenient.

Thanks for your “best part of Ireland review” . All ages take out tours and on the day you were the youngest on board but driver guide John O’Neill is used to entertaining all ages and from feedback it appears he appeals to the audiences of all ages. Glad you were blown away by the beautiful Ring of Kerry scenery and thanks for taking the time to post some lovely photos of your day. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in the region.

“Exceeded expectations!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I was really looking forward to The Ring of Kerry tour but the trip ended up far exceeding our expectations. John O Neill was our driver guide and I would say to anyone that is going to travel the Ring of Kerry tour that with John O Neill on Wild Kerry day tours is the only way to do it. We rented a car to travel Ireland however we parked it up and enjoyed being driven around this unique and picturesque tour.

“Absolutely brilliant”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

I am originally from kerry myself and decided to bring my inlaws on a tour on the ring of kerry.
I thought that my family would see more by bus than in a lower car. Didn't know what to expect at first and wasn't sure if my inlaws would enjoy it. However after only about 2 minutes of getting on the bus with Driver Guide John O Neill I knew it would be a fabulous tour. We got on in Killarney and toured for 180 + kilometers back into killarney. John was the best tour guide I have ever come across, he knew every bit of history and information on the ring from boglands to local heroes. John had us all listening for the whole tour through educating us and making us laugh.
We made a few stops for lunch, photo's and the amzingly interesting Kerry Bog Village. I would recommend this tour to anyone and was delighted my family got to see the beauty of Kerry.

Thank for your 5 star review of or Ring of Kerry daytour – even for a Kerry native it is a great way to learn a bit more about the surround area as well as the history, geography, folklore etc of the region which a lot of us Kerry folk don’t actually know. Glad your relatives also enjoyed the day our and the humorous commentary of driver Guide John O’Neill. Thanks too for your comments re the Kerry Bog Village. This stop gives a fascinating insight into how people lived and worked in Ireland in the 18th Century – this is one of the optional visits on our Ring of Kerry but it comes highly recommended – a must see for sure! Thanks again for taking the time to review Wild Kerry Daytours
