Highlights
  • Explore Killarney in a traditional Irish horse and carriage (“jaunting car”)
  • See the 15th-century tower house of Ross Castle and look for native red deer
  • Learn about Killarney’s history and culture from your carriage driver
  • Choose the perfect time to suit your travel plans
What to Expect
Greet your driver at the Malton Hotel in central Killarney—and pet the horse, if you’d like. Climb aboard and relax as you trot through the town and your driver points out landmarks. Pass St. Mary’s Cathedral, a charming thatched cottage, and Killarney House Gardens before you clip-clop into Killarney National Park. The country’s last herd of native red deer frequent the deer park, so keep your eyes peeled as you admire the misty mountains across the lake. As you approach Ross Castle, a 15th-century tower house, your carriage driver will tell you tales of its heroic past. Enjoy a photo stop here before you return to the tour's starting point.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. The ride was and scenery was may even more enjoyable because of the humor of the driver. We went in September of 2019 and I found their card while cleaning out my suitcase. It was so enjoyable I had to add a review.

Michael and his horse Julie were great. Michael was very knowledgeable and had great aul jokes. Definitely a bit of a comedian in him. The pace was lovely for the Killarney park trail to explore by the jaunting car and covered & saw so much. This is something I would recommend.
