What Customers Say

  • This is a must do if you would like a trip back in time and see some wonderful lakes and learn the early history of Ireland. A 1 hour tour is aprox 20 euro and money well spent. They will pick you up right at your door and the guides are great. good for families and couples.

  • We went for a morning ride with the Jaunting Cars, we were not disappointed. Very picturesque and the guide was very informative. If you are in Killarney you must give this a try.

  • Our coach guide made arrangements for those in our group who wanted to do this. I think we took up 3 of the jaunting cars. We had 6 in back and two up front with the driver. Nice blankets to keep the chill off on a misty morning. Our driver Pat, and his horse Jimmy, took great care of us. Pat was informative and funny. Loved the ride. Would highly recommend.
