Bus Mans holiday
Aug 2021
Living locally and working in tourism I decided to take what my visiting friend referred to as a Bus mans Holiday. Well I certainly felt as though was I abroad. Pats narration, knowledge and wit was delivered in a most informative and friendly manner. He is a fountain of knowledge yet as I say humorous and witty. His driving skills are exceptional considering the traffic of Killarney and the tight spaces he has to turn his coach most especially at Torc Waterfall. We were mesmerised as to how he managed in such a tight space. I highly recommend this trip , park your car, sit back and enjoy your day with family and new found friends.

Horrible experience! Really made our day difficult. Not reliable at all.
Jul 2021
Very bad service in general. The Bus was late all-day. The last time slot the bus didn't show up at Muckross House.

Is quite expensive for such unreliable service.

You better off take the jaunting cars or taxi cab between the castle, house, and waterfall.

Hi, I have already responded and apologized to your colleague and now offer the same apology to you, I am very sorry that you had such a bad experience with us on Sunday, you will note from other reviews that this was a totally unprecedented situation, we pride ourselves in our punctuality and are rarely late despite Killarney being a very busy and sometimes traffic-congested town. On the day you were with us your driver was on his very first day with the company and he had what can only be described as a day from hell, everything that could go wrong did go wrong, Traffic was unusually hectic and this was not expected, furthermore there was not one but two traffic accidents, one of which happened at our bus stop on Mission road which prevented the bus from moving for over 40 minutes. The bus did complete all of its circuits but was very late and I can only apologize for that. I personally spoke to as many of our customers as I could meet as they returned to the town and thankfully they were all very understanding and empathetic. I too wish I lived in a perfect world where nothing ever went wrong but I'm afraid we don't and for that, I again apologize.

A good way to see Killarney

Excellent! We went to Muckross house. The guide was very knowledgeable. Her name was Nora. She was very accommodating to a woman who was in a wheel chair. We had lunch at the restaurant on the property which was very tasty.

A good means to get to the sights of Killarney
Aug 2019
Used the bus one day to get to Torc waterfall and back to the city from Muckross House.The driver told a lot about the area during the drive.
The next day we bought a single ticket to Ross Castle - an inexpensive way to get there, compared to the jaunting cars.

Great route!
Jun 2019 • Family
This was the perfect way to get around. My 12 year old son and I got on at 10:30 and saw all of the sights - choosing to spend a couple of hours at some. We even took an open boat tour at Muckross Castle. We missed the tour of the castle because we did the open boat to Innisfallen (highly recommend) so if you want to tour the castle, go inside first. Thanks for a great tour!

Great tour of Killarney
My sister and I took the hop-on, hop-off tour of Killarney and loved it! Pat, our tour guide, was so friendly and knowledgeable. We learned a ton in our short time together. The tour went to some great places that I wouldn’t have necessarily thought to see during our visit. Would recommend!

Great way to get to the sights around Killarney
I had a lovely experience on the Big Red Bus. I joined the second last bus at Ross Castle so I could only stop at one place for a longer time. Our driver (I unfortunately don’t know his name) was so kind to stop for 15 minutes at Torc Waterfall so it was enough to see the waterfall and get back on the bus to Muckross House. Our driver also told us a bit about the history of the places or pointed something out along the way. I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it!

Great way to see more!
Apr 2019
We had several days of doing a lot of driving around Ireland, and this was a wonderful way to see multiple locations in Killarney National Park. Efficient and low cost, the bus gets you around in one day following a schedule. Pat, our driver, was funny and gracious, and we were happy to buy him a pint at the end of the tour!
