One of the best!
Sep. 2021 • Solo
Highly Recommended! Our starting guide John(volunteer) was really informative and quite passionate about his work. He had a lot of stories to tell and the train ride was fun!
Our bus guide Batt in the ring of Kerry was too good and really fun. There were singing songs and all kinds of stories.
It was one of the most fun experiences I’ve had in a very long time!
If you are looking to visit Kerry and are short on time this tour is very highly recommended!

Ring of Kerry in the Rain!
Oct. 2019
From start to finish, this tour delivered! Our personalized tour guide getting to the Ring of Kerry was so delightful and and us all feel very taken care of. The bus tour was a lot of fun and the scenery was beautiful, despite the rain and mist. I highly recommend this tour, it was worth every penny.

A long day, but worth it if you want to get a trip to the southwest and to see the Ring of Kerry in during a visit to Dublin. Weather and time of year probably makes a difference. We had a nice day in early October, and it was lovely.

This was my favorite day trip I did while in Ireland. The views were amazing and the tour was run very well. I also had the best tour guide of my entire trip. Bartholomew was so much fun. He entertained us with song, poetry and a wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend this tour.

Long Beautiful Day
Sep. 2019
This is long tour consisting of train and bus travel. It is well worth it. The views are fantastics and the rate set by the guides lets you take in a lot during the day. Our guide Steven was a gentleman and gave a tremendous amount of insights into the locations we were visiting as well as other locations we should visit while in Ireland. Steven made sure our day was special. We highly recommend this tour for anyone who has an entire day and wants to take in the Ring of Kerry.

Prepare to be herded
Aug. 2019
We took 3 tours during our trip and this was the only one I didn't really enjoy. It may be better if you pick it up somewhere closer than Dublin. They do a good job of making sure you make the proper connections but it makes for a long day. There are so many tour busses stopping at the same spots so that if one person on your bus doesn't get back on in time you'll be behind 50 other people for lunch. It was such a hurried schedule that you didn't have enough time to actually enjoy anything.

Jul. 2019 • Family
I am not satisfied with the services. I was late, I try to phone for the number indicated on the ticket before 7:00,time of departure and that number belonged to an office which would be open only after 8:00.when I arrived at the meeting point the tour had already left. When I finally was able to contact with them asking if they would let me to made the trip in another day, then answered me there was nothing they could do. I had paid 2 tickets and I lost 238 €. I don't recommend their services.
