“Fun Experience”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

The first day we arrived in Killarney, we did not have any tours planned. It was a free day for us. We asked our hotel's front desk about fun things to do and she recommended we take a jaunt through the park and to see Ross Castle. So we did just that. And it was a great experience. The horse was named Rosie. She was so cute. She had a little white rose in her mane and everything. It was truly an enjoyable experience. There was great scenery and the we took some beautiful pictures. It is definitely worth it.

“A lovely morning and one of the best ways to see the National Park”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

I called a day before and the next morning there were Michael and Bob (the horse) waiting to pick us up. They took us for a spin around Killarney National Park, what a lovely time! Michael knew a great deal about the park, it's plant life, history of the structures, its history in general. There was a little rain and it was cool but the coach had a cover and Michael had brought wool blankets. Bob the horse didn't seem to mind the weather and horse and driver had a lovely rapport. A very charming and beautiful experience.

“Horse Drawn Carriage Ride”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We took two Jaunting Car rides during our stay in Killarney. One to the Killarney Horse Race and then the next day to the Ross Castle. Both times we found the drivers very informative about the town and the history of the area. We found the rides relaxing and the drivers very nice. We would recommend this to anyone.
